We all know that one guy who’s impossible to buy presents for – whether it’s your brother, dad, uncle, best pal or maybe even your other half. It’s even worse when you ask them what they want, and the answer is – a vague, "I don't really need anything." Argh, annoying!
Well one way to get over the gifting dilemma is to get them an experience day. There are so many fun things you can do – from a helicopter day trip to truck driving to even just a nice meal if they’re a bit of a bon vivant.
We've rounded up the best experience days for him to fit all tastes and budgets – there’s something here for everyone – keep on scrolling!
