3 Great Gift Ideas to Create the ‘Wow’ Factor


Gift buying is a fine art, and it can be incredibly difficult to come up with fresh and exciting great gift ideas year after year. You hope to create the ‘wow’ factor with every gift you give, however in some instances you just aren’t feeling motivated to spend hours finding the perfect gift, or you’re at a loss for which gift will really “wow” them. This has the potential for a half-hearted, poorly thought out gift being given.

If you have an occasion coming up and you need to buy a gift for a loved one, step out from your previous gift buying comfort zone and present them with a gift that will simply blow them away by reading on for three great gift ideas that will most definitely result in the ‘wow’ factor!

Great Gift Ideas to Really Wow Them

Take to the Road

If the person you are buying for is a car fanatic, why not utilize your knowledge of this when it comes to buying an awesome present? There are some great track days available now that enable the gift receiver to get behind the wheel of their favorite sports car, from Porsches and Ferraris to Bentleys and Lamborghinis, or alternatively follow in the footsteps of Formula One drivers such as Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button by taking control of a real F1 car and flying it around the track.

It’s not just new cars that you can enjoy the thrill of driving though, as classics such as the Aston Martin DB4, Lotus Cortina and Jaguar E Type can also be driven around tracks or even out on the open road on certain experience days.

Take Them Away

Everyone loves a break away to escape the rigmarole of day to day life and enjoy a few days of pure rest and relaxation in a different city or country. Short breaks make for great gift ideas for a loved one. The surprise and excitement on their faces as they open their present to discover where they are traveling to will be well worth the effort you will have had to put in to make all the necessary arrangements.

There are short breaks available to suit all budgets, from a weekend away to take in the sights of a nearby destination to a few more days vacationing in a in an exciting city like New York, Paris or Rome. The ‘wow’ factor will be there both when they first open their gift and when they arrive at the short break destination!

Take to the Air

While you may be required to take to the air when you buy a short break in a foreign city, there are also a variety of other gifts out there that involve air travel in one way or another. A gift involving some sort of flight can be suitable for a wide variety of different people, from those who are renowned as thrill seekers to those you know prefer to take life at a more leisurely pace.

For the thrill seeker, flying lessons or a flight in a small plane could be right up their alley, while a hot air balloon trip or a flight in a helicopter will probably be more suited to someone who you know would enjoy a more leisurely experience up in the air.

If you have been stuck for ideas but know you want to create the ‘wow’ factor for the next gift you buy for a loved one, hopefully the three ideas detailed above will help you out and ensure that you can hand over the gift with the confidence that the person receiving it is going to love and really appreciate it!

    1. Hi Ashley,

      I’d be thrilled too, although as I’ve mentioned before, perhaps not a hot air balloon flight! Thanks for commenting.

    1. Hi Amber,

      Thanks for the positive comment! Flying is most definitely the best way to travel as you can simply sit back and enjoy the flight without worrying about getting lost or having to drive!

    1. Hi Krystle,

      Many thanks for the lovely comment and I’m glad you liked the post. A hot air balloon ride would be a fantastic experience, but perhaps not one for me as I’m not too keen on heights!!
