Christmas Gift Ideas, from Spa Days to Creative Courses in North Devon

Ideal Gifts for Surfers
Sometimes the best gift you can give is a new experience to look forward to. Perhaps you know someone who has been itching to try surfing for ages but never taken the plunge? Or how about expert tuition to take the keen surfer in your life to the next level? We have some brilliant surf tuition here in North Devon, with a range of options including experience days that make ideal gifts for surfers.  

Photography Courses in North Devon
Do you know someone who is snap happy but a little unschooled when it comes to cameras? A photography class is the ideal way to nurture this interest in practical fashion. Nor do you need weeks of practise or lectures; in fact there are various one day and short photography courses in Devon to look out for. One of the best in our area is in nearby Exmoor- a stirring setting for any budding photographer and the Beginners photography Workshops hosted by Exmoor Photography are a great starting point.

Spa Days and Devon Escapes
Aside from all the lotions, potions and pampering gifts you might treat your other half too, perhaps the ultimate way to spoil someone is to treat them to some expert TLC. One or several of our soothing treatments make a lovely feel-good Christmas present; with one of our special gift vouchers they can choose exactly the treatments they want, when they want them. Have a peek at our Haven Spa Page, which includes an easy to download brochure and treatments menu.


Experience Days for Animal Lovers
For a totally different treat, why not give someone special the chance to get up close and personal with some amazing animals? At Coombe Martin Wildlife Park, gift experience days make it possible to spend the day in some very different company! How about swimming with a sea lion, feeding the lions or even becoming a zoo keeper for the day? It’s a Christmas gift they won’t forget in a hurry! Read more HERE.
