Xmas Present Woes – Give Experiences

18 Dec

This holiday season, instead of giving your girlfriends a necklace or a sweater, mix things up and gift them an experience they’ll never forget. Sometimes life’s responsibilities can get in the way of spending enough quality time with your gal pals, so what better way to make time for them than to give it as a gift? And the best part of experience gifts is that the memories and photos will last a lifetime. Here are 6 out-of-the-box girls’ night out ideas that you can share with your ladies, whether they are sporty, crafty, or have a sweet tooth!

  1. Day spa
  2. Chocolate experience
  3. Wine tasting
  4. Pole dancing
  5. Zumba
  6. Book club

And lads, you can do the same thing… except no shopping on the list! And while you’d like to try pole dancing, I’m not sure how that would go down with your man-pals.

  1. Deep sea fishing trip
  2. Skydiving
  3. Wine tasting
  4. Duran Duran 2012 concert tickets (yes you may as well fess up – you loved ‘em too)
  5. Dr Who box set (or Star Wars) – fun for everyone & some downtime in the new year.
  6. Bikram yoga (yes… lose those unwanted Xmas kilos)
  7. If you’re in Australia – Harry Potter exhibition @Powerhouse in Sydney or Harry Potter World in the USA (and you can use the kids as your excuse)!

Morning coffee rituals

11 Dec

There are some things that you just can’t live without… and for each of us this is different. Enter the marketer!!

Which one are you?

One thing that usually gets us going in the morning is a nice strong brew of coffee. Now again, we all have our different preferences. Some of us don’t drink instant coffee and spend an entire wage on a superbly, sleek stainless steel model that does everything but brush our teeth! Some like the convenience of a Nespresso, but many of us like to have the overall stereo sound of hearing the beans grind, the milk froth, seeing the steam vapour. Again, enter marketers.

No matter whether we like the chat in the coffee room at work, the quick and dirty instant or the sense sensation, there is a coffee for all types. Then there is the plain hilarious!
