Gifts You Won’t Want To Give

Go Ape Gift Experiences Christmas

What’s the absolute worst Christmas present you’ve ever received? A novelty tie? A pair of gloves that were quite obviously a last minute purchase from the petrol station? Some suspect-looking chocolate liqueurs, perhaps?!

Now, we don’t wish to sound ungrateful or anything – and obviously Christmas is all about the giving, not the receiving – but sometimes the gifts lovingly presented to us by our friends and family are…well…disappointing, at best – and downright disturbing, at worst!

As the Christmas shopping season rears its Santa-hat-adorned-head once again, we thought it would be fun to step back from all the madness and appreciate just how wrong people can sometimes get it. Let’s take a look back at the Christmas of yesteryear to see some of the worst offenders…

Desktop Drum Kit

As if it wasn’t bad enough that you have to sit your desk all day at work, imagine if your co-worker rocked up after the festive break with their very own drum kit to keep on their desk? We can’t quite work out when or why this would be useful thing to have, and we’re pretty sure it was designed purely to get on other people’s nerves.

Mewgaroo pet pouch hoodie

Yes, you read that right, Mewgaroo…as in, miaow/kangaroo…do you get it? This simple (yet still somehow unbelievable) design lets you sit on the sofa with your cat snuggled up in the hoodie’s fleece-lined pouch, like a feline kangaroo. No more worrying about disturbing your cat if you need to go make a cup of tea – or if you ever want to have a social life again!*

*We’re fully aware that some of you cat-lovers out there (you know who you are) will actually think this is the best gift ever.

Beard baubles

Once again, yep, you read that correctly. A strange new craze emerged last year, where bearded chaps throughout the country decided it was a good idea to festoon their beards with tiny, multicoloured, shimmering baubles. And for those who didn’t? They probably received one as their Secret Santa gift – which got accidentally ‘misplaced’ afterwards…

Wireless eye massager

Just when we thought we didn’t have enough gadgets and gizmos, along came the wireless eye massager (because a wired eye massager would just be silly, right?) This frankly terrifying invention massages “your entire ocular region” and features pre-recorded “soothing nature sounds”. What ever happened to good old-fashioned sleep and fresh air?

This Christmas, don’t even think about getting anything from this list! If you’re looking for that perfect present and don’t want to risk getting it wrong, why not give the gift of adventure with a Go Ape voucher?

Gift Vouchers Go Ape

They can use their voucher for a day in the trees they’ll never forget. Even better, for a limited time only we’re giving away an awesome virtual reality headset (and accompanying app) with every gift voucher purchase – so they can relive the Go Ape experience again and again!

Give the gift of adventure this Christmas!

Go Ape Gift Vouchers this Christmas

We all have that someone in our lives who (even though we love them very much) is extremely difficult to buy presents for.

Go Ape Gift Voucher Free GiftIt happens every Christmas. We ask them for ideas and they say “I’ll have a think” – but never get back to us. Or they say those dreaded words: “Just surprise me!” So we end up buying some out-of-the-box gift; and as they pull it out of the wrapping paper, they say “I love it!” in that strange, high-pitched voice. They’re lying – and we have failed, again. What’s worse is that we’ve lost the receipt, so we can’t even offer to take it back.

Right…it’s time to put an end to this!

No more wasting money on presents that never see the light of day once Christmas has passed; presents that get sold for next-to-nothing at a car boot sale, or get shoved under the bed and forgotten about.

It’s time to surprise that special someone with a gift they will actually appreciate and use! A gift they won’t have to pretend to like when they open it on Christmas day. They’ll tell you that they love it, and actually mean it!

We are, of course, talking about the glorious gift of adventure!

Just imagine their face upon finding out that they’ll soon be swinging through the trees in an Ape-like fashion?!

In fact, with a Go Ape gift voucher, you can pick an adventure that best suits them. Would they like to climb high into the tree tops to tackle everything from bridges and tunnels to swings and stirrups? Or, would they rather cruise around the forest on-board our all-terrain Forest Segways?

Our Tree Top Adventure courses are hibernating for winter, but they’ll be back open for monkey business come spring. So, that leaves plenty of time for that special someone to get psyched up about their one-of-a-kind forest outing!

If that ‘special someone’ is a little monkey, you could buy them a gift voucher for a Tree Top Junior adventure, with courses remaining open year-round (so long as the weather is OK).

Experience Virtual Go ApeOh, and if you need any more persuading…for a limited time, we’re giving away a FREE virtual reality headset with every postal gift voucher!

By downloading the Go Ape 360 app, the giftee will get a taste of what Go Ape is all about before their big day. Donning our monkey-inspired headsets, they’ll be able to swing through the trees whilst sat on the sofa, and zip around the forest whilst tucked up in bed!

Time’s ticking if you want to get your furry mitts on this great gift – so go, go, go!
