It’s the most wonderful time of the year (or so the song goes) – whether you're rocking around the Christmas tree or dodging the mistletoe, the festive season is upon us. Enough with the cliches this Xmas. Why not do something a little different? We’ve got you covered with heart-racing experiences, romantic getaways, and family fun that will be buzzed about long after the tinsel’s gone. Gone are the days of gifts from long-lost cousin Sue that end up gathering dust in the corner. Say hell no to socks and candles – this year, it's all about making memories with your ride-or-dies. Experience vouchers are where it’s at, and we’ve found the best out there to save you some time.

The best online gift vouchers in Australia for your boo.

Level up your game this holiday season with the ultimate gift voucher for two. Whether it's a relaxing spa experience, a fun-packed day of adventures or something they’ve never done before – nothing says I love you like quality time with the one you love. Add a little spice this season with our pick of the best gift vouchers to give your boo.

Skip the ordinary and whisk them away to Red Balloon, Alba Thermal Springs Bathing and 2 Course Dining. Picture this: hidden oasis, relaxation meets indulgence, and a 2-course feast for two. Romance level? 10/10.

The perfect mix of adventure and indulgence for your wild-at-heart loved ones – an Overnight Zoo Safari With Dinner and Breakfast. Spend the night surrounded by the sounds of the wild cats and wake up to the call of exotic birds serenading your morning. Or maybe they’d rather saddle up for a Yarra Valley Horse Trail Ride with Wine Tasting – a 2.5-hour relaxing trail ride through stunning landscapes topped off with local wine tasting with a view. Sounds like a winner!

For the thrill-seekers and adrenaline junkies, we have a heap of experiences that will leave them breathless – in the best way possible. Take to the skies, hit the road or dive into the ocean with our top pick of experience gift ideas for the adventurers in your life.

Not for the faint-hearted – the Warbird Aerobatic Flight will have you spinning and looping through the skies, creating memories that (literally) defy gravity. Know someone with a need for speed a little closer to the ground?

Lewis Hamilton, eat your heart out.

Now, for those in the fam who want the adventure minus the adrenaline spike, don’t worry. We've got them covered, too. Picture this: a chilled-out day on the reef with the Great Barrier Reef + Green Island 1 Day Tour Combo. They’ll get all of their snorkelling gear included, plus a hot buffet lunch – because, let’s face it, no adventurer should ever go hungry. Just watch out for those sharks!
