This introduction offers each participant two flights, that’s the same freefall time as three tandem skydives, but in a completely safe and indoor environment.
Stadium tour gifts are rapidly becoming a classic for Father’s Day: they offer a sense of exclusivity and uniqueness, as well as a chance for the dad’s to show their loyalty to their team or player.

Whether he is a Liverpool or Manchester United fan, he’ll be delighted to receive this as a corporate gift.
Another experience we saw rising through the corporate gifting ranks was comedy nights.

At this point, what dad hasn’t expressed a desire to be James Bond?

Think old TV’s and monitors, glass bottles and crockery, printers and more.
There’s something about dads and just loving the bygone motor era. With expert instruction, he’ll take to the track in his choice of classic car from the fleet boasting the likes of Mustang GT350, Caterham, Mini Cooper S and many more.

Skydiving is a pretty genius gift if you ask us, especially if your customer or employee is a self-proclaimed risk-taker. Jumping out of the plane, he’ll reach speeds of up to 120 mph before the canopy slows things down enough for him to enjoy a panorama like no other. From the breath-taking thrills to the idyllic views, this is a Father’s Day gift or reward he’ll never forget.
Contrary to popular belief, some dads are actually very simple beings who just want a day spent on the green. And many of our customers and clients seemed to lock onto this idea last year.
