GIVE THE GIFT OF ALOCAL EXPERIENCE THIS CHRISTMAS

Christmas is coming, but there’s no need to panic if you haven’t finished your shopping. Why not buy them a fabulous local experience, for something a little different? There are plenty of options, as Alli Grant discovered.

More socks and jocks for Christmas? No thanks! Instead, why not give the gift of a local Ipswich experience to your loved ones this year? It’s a great way to support local businesses and treat them with a unique experience they’ll remember forever.

As luck would have it, we have a stack of incredible experiences right on our doorstep (and most offer gift vouchers).

Here are a few of my picks.

FLOAT AWAY IN A HOT AIR BALLOON

n

I can honestly say that my first hot air balloon experience was just incredible – so peaceful and beautiful – and we’re lucky enough to have one of the best operators right on our doorstep, Floating Images. Picture yourself tucked into a big wicker basket, a gentle breeze taking you on a sky-high adventure above Southeast Queensland, with Chief Pilot Graeme sharing his intimate knowledge of the local area. Launching just one flight per day with four to 10 passengers, Floating Images offers a boutique and personalised balloon experience from its base at Karalee.

CHILLING OUT

If there’s one gift I will happily receive year after year after year, it’s a spa voucher. Massage, facials, pedicures, beauty products … I love them all. If you’re looking for a failsafe gift that will make them smile (and relax), visit one of the city’s many day spas and pick up a voucher for a pamper pack.

DID SOMEONE SAY SHOPPING SPREE?

If your loved one loves to shop, why not treat them to a voucher or two from their favourite local boutiques? In the Top of Town alone, there’s so much on offer, from shoes to frocks, accessories, homewares, jewellery, art suppliers, models and toys, hobby supplies, baby clothes … and more!
