Gift Unforgettable Bucket List Experiences w/ Breakaway Experiences
Sometimes, it can be quite the task to find THE perfect Christmas gift for our loved ones. After all, we want to give presents that will take their breath away and one that they’ll cherish forever. Start early by thinking about what you’d like to surprise them with. One thing to remember – the best gifts can’t be wrapped!
Buy experiences, not things.
I’ve always been a firm believer that you should spend money on experiences, not things. I think it makes life that much more rewarding. It may be cliche to mention but, people don’t remember what you give them but, they remember how you made them feel. The same goes for experiences, they’re memories they can take with them forever.
When it comes to gifting memories, Breakaway Experiences are the pros. They work with over 150 companies across Canada and have over 1000 experiences to choose from. They’ve really embraced the ever-growing popularity of “once-in-a-lifetime” and “bucket list” experiences.
And, I’m kinda here for all that.
Aside from having that down, they’re convenient. They offer gift certificates that you can use for a remarkable variety of unique experiences. From luxurious spa packages, romantic dates for two or gourmet food tours. For the more adventurous peeps in your life, there are experiences like stock car racing, helicopter flying lessons and sea doo expeditions.
Why should you spend your cheddar at Breakaway Experiences?
- A one-stop shop for some of Canada’s unique activities for gifts.
- You are giving a gift they really want – Why risk getting another ugly sweater or gadget they’ll never use? You can give an experience that they’ll always remember and is something they might never buy for themselves. Check something off their bucket list this Christmas.
- Instant gifting – Did you leave your shopping to the last minute? No worries: You can buy their present any time of day and instantly print it up to put in a card or simply email them. They will never know you left it so late.
- Certificates never expire – BE guarantees the value of all certificates. If a certificate is not redeemed within a year of purchase and the cost of the experience increases, the certificate holder will only have to pay the difference between the original value and the new price.
- Hassle-free exchange policy – Not sure they will love the experience you picked? With our hassle-free exchange policy, they can simply trade it for the full value of the original certificate.

Gift a Bucket List Item
Life is short and more and more people are wanting to start crossing things off of their bucket lists. Unfortunately, it isn’t always in the cards for everyone. So, being able to gift someone an experience that they wouldn’t normally be able to enjoy is worth so much.
For example, for us, life gets so busy. I am looking into surprising Darasak with a hot air balloon ride after the winter and maybe getting him out on the water in Toronto. I am going to be using BE for sure because they have both of these experiences available. It’s thrilling to see the look on his face and it keeps our relationship exciting too!
