3 amazing experiences you can have with a Thomas Cook Gift Card

After some Christmas gift ideas? Of course, you can give the Gift of Travel with a Thomas Cook Gift Card. But did you realise that they can be exchanged for more than just travel? There are actually a number of unforgettable experiences that you can buy with a Thomas Cook Gift Card, too. So if you’re stuck for ideas for that perfect Christmas present to get a loved one, here are three amazing experiences that could be had.

1) Spa breaks

Thomas Cook Spa Breaks

What could possibly be more relaxing than an indulgent spa break? Whether it’s for your partner, your mum or a friend, they’ll love the opportunity to pick a spa of their choosing, at a time that suits them best. That way, they can truly unwind and make the most of the experience. And, fingers crossed, they may even ask you to go along with them!

Whether they want top-to-toe pampering or just one or two nice treatments, they’ll have the freedom to choose what’s right for them. They could have a full body massage, a facial, get their nails done or maybe even try something they’ve never heard of before.

Another thing that’s great about a spa break is that they're bought as a package that includes accommodation, so they can make a full weekend of their gift. The packages often include meals or use of the on-site leisure facilities such as the pool, steam room, sauna or Jacuzzi too. So why not get a Thomas Cook Gift Card so that they can buy a well-deserved spa break? It’s the ultimate way to make someone feel special.

2) Sports breaks

Wondering what the perfect gift is for that sports fanatic in your life? Then a thrilling sports break could be just the thing you’re looking for. Buy them a Thomas Cook Gift Card and they can choose whatever event or match gets their adrenaline pumping the most. Whether they want to see their favourite team at the football, feel the rush of the cars racing past at a Formula One Grand Prix or take to Centre Court to watch the aces at Wimbledon, this is the experience for them.

A sports break bought with a Thomas Cook Gift Card doesn’t just include the event itself. There are plenty of other added extras that you could include in the package, too. How about a tour of the stadium? Or a copy of the official programme? And just like the spa breaks, our sports breaks include a night at a hotel to make the getaway even better; even if their team don’t win! (That’s some consolation, right?)

3) Theatre breaks

Raise the curtain on a Christmas that your loved one will never forget, when you buy them a Thomas Cook Gift Card for a theatre break. Whether they’re a musical connoisseur or it’s their first taste of the West End, who wouldn’t love the option of choosing the show that best suits their personality? They might be looking for an all-singing, all-dancing colourful musical such as Disney’s The Lion King or School of Rock. Or perhaps they’d prefer something a little more poignant such as Les Misérables or the Phantom of the Opera? Either way, you’ll find it all in London’s West End.

Now, I don’t want to sound like I’m repeating myself, but obviously we don’t just offer the show tickets as part of the Thomas Cook Gift Card theatre breaks packages, but they also include a night at a swanky London hotel as part of the experience too. Or better yet? You could also add a tour of one of the Big Smoke’s most popular tourist attractions, such as the fascinating Shakespeare’s Globe. If you ask me, that sounds like the perfect getaway for any theatre fan.

Did you realise that all of these can be bought with a Thomas Cook Gift Card? What will you be buying that someone special this Christmas? Let me know in the comments below.

Thomas Cook Gift Cards can be bought either online or instore; as a physical Gift Card or an eGift Card. You’ll get to choose the design you want and, of course, how much you’d like to put on there. (That can be anything between £10 and £5,000, by the way.) Then whoever you give it to can just pop into their nearest Thomas Cook store and choose their dream experience. It really is as simple as that.
