There’s always one family member who is notoriously hard to buy for at Christmas! To help take the pain out of Christmas shopping we’ve compiled a list of unique gift ideas for that special someone…


Perfect for the young and young at heart. Choose from four different adrenalin pumping activities that are perfect for all ages 8+. There is Drift Trikes, Blokarts, Laser Tag and for those who don’t mind getting messy – Paintball. Visit BayStation for more info and to buy your voucher online.


Craig Smith, the author of The Wonky Donkey and many other great sing-along kids’ books, will be in town on January 28, 2021 for two shows. The shows will be at Trustpower Arena at 11am and 2pm. Tickets are only $25 for a family, $6 for adults and $8 for children ‒ it’s great value! To purchase a voucher ahead of them going on sale email Shane Gillum from Bay Venues.


Help create family memories with a pass to Baywave. The kids will love the new Aqua Play Station, the wave pool and hydro slide. While parents (if kids are over 10) will be able to slip away to enjoy the sauna, spa and steam room. Email to organize your voucher or see the lovely staff at Baywave’s reception.


Know someone who runs around all year long, looking after everyone but themself? Create a moment of calm and relaxation with a massage voucher for Christmas. The Mount Hot Pools have voucher options for 30, 45, 60 & 90 minute massages starting at only $50. Purchase online at any time.


Give the gift of swimming this season with a voucher for term 1 swimming lessons or to take part in BaySwim’s holiday lessons in January. BaySwim operates from two handy locations; Baywave and Greerton Aquatic and Leisure Centre. Lessons start at $12 per session and are vital for kiwi kids who are in and around water over summer. Email to organize your voucher.


Got a motor-head in the family who is hard to buy for? How about tickets to Speedway? They can be used for any of the 2020/2021 season and at only $25 per adult or $60 for a family pass, they are great value! Check out the Baypark Speedway website for more information or call (07) 574 2227.


Got a teen who is starting to become more conscious of their appearance and in need of some motivating guidance? Sign them up for a student membership at Clubfit. They’ll receive a personalised programme, shown how to use the equipment and plenty of friendly support along the way. For more info visit

We hope this list helps you think outside the square when it comes to Christmas time. Vouchers and memberships are the gift that keeps on giving; providing valuable memories for months to come!
