Promotion & incentive ideas - Christmas in New York



Christmas shopping in New York

You may not get the same bargains for your buck on a trip to the States as you once would, but there's nothing like New York at Christmas. Get your fix of festive shopping on Fifth Avenue and admire the opulent windows displays put on by the likes of SAK's and Barney's. Pay a visit to The Rockefeller Center's iconic ice rink, admire Central Park under a blanket of frost or stroll the streets soaking up the unique atmosphere of the Big Apple.


Promotion & incentive ideas - Christmas tree farm



Deck your halls

Family fun days out are popular prizes come Christmas. There's no better way to get your family in the festive spirit than with a trip to a Christmas tree farm. There's something special about selecting your own fir tree, having it wrapped and wrestling it through the front door. It's like you're bringing Christmas itself home. You can make a full family day out of a trip to a farm. Many are home to reindeer, Santa's grottos or even Christmas wreath making. Some great ones to check out are Cheshire Reindeer Lodge or Claydon Christmas Tree Farm.

Pandora Disney Collection



Treats and tipples

Our prize fulfilment team have you covered for special treats to put under the tree. Pandora's latest Disney themed range is already proving a popular choice this year. There's a whole host of characters to choose from. Given the popularity of Beauty and the Beast in cinemas, some of our favourites are the Belle's dress pendant and the Mrs Potts and Chip charm. For a grown-up gift, alcohol is always a winner. Why not try something different and give the Unicorn Tears Gin. It has a magical glittery finish to fit the Christmas season. And if you're looking for an early treat, how about a prosecco advent calendar?

If you're dreaming of a white Christmas, there's a fair chance you'll have to leave the UK to get it. So why not head to the slopes for your fix of the white stuff. For the ultimate ski break with a group of friends or family, head to the Chalet Aurora in Meribel. France. After a tough day on the slopes, it's the perfect place to cosy up and unwind. There's even an outdoor hot tub to admire the mountain views from. Check out more ski resort ideas here.

Get your skates on

Bundle up the family in their warmest hats, scarfs and gloves for a day of ice skating fun at one of London's iconic landmarks. The National History Museum and Somerset House are two of the capital's most beautiful rink locations but there's plenty around the UK to choose from. Afterwards be sure to warm up with a marshmallow-topped hot chocolate for a sweet end to your day out.

Fitbit Ionic



Gifts and gadgets

Technology has been topping the Christmas gift guides for years and 2017 is no different. It'll come as no surprise that Apple's iPhone X is one of the 'must haves' this year. Other techie gadgets to put on your list include hands-free smart speaker Google Home. The Fitbit Ionic is a great choice for anyone looking to take their training to the next level in the New Year. While the Impossible I-1 camera, one of the most advanced instant cameras on the market, allows you to take photos with a clap of your hands - perfect for getting that Christmas family photo.


Promotion & incentive ideas - Vilnius Christmas tree



Visit Vilnius Christmas market

If you're looking to squeeze in a weekend away before the year is out, a visit to a European Christmas market is the ideal solution. You can even justify it with the excuse that you'll be picking up presents while you're away. Lithuania's capital could be the perfect Christmas market destination. There's enough to see to keep you occupied for a short break and lots of cosy cafés to warm up in. The architecture is even more beautiful at this time of year when there's likely to be a layer of snow on the rooftops. The market surrounds the city's Christmas tree which is always a striking focal point. The stalls are really authentic, with the added bonus of being very cheap - as is the city itself. For more Christmas market ideas check out our post here.


Claridge's | TripAdvisor



Christmas at Claridge's

Afternoon tea is always a treat; even more so when it has an extra bit of indulgence. A festive afternoon tea is a perfect time to swap presents with friends before the holidays. For a truly luxurious experience try Claridge's festive tea. The sweet treats come with a Yuletide twist and there's even an additional Christmas pudding course! It's not just themed food though, there are gorgeous decorations, carols sung in the foyer and you'll even receive a gift on departure.
