Birthday Gift Ideas South Africa

how to celebrate

Birthdays need to be celebrated, and the big milestone ones in particular should always be remembered. For the most part, life is hectic and everything can just seem mass produced, often losing that authentic special touch. Enter Celestial Gift Experiences. We are a niche service industry, established in 2005, specialising in unique and memorable packages. The science is simple; the feeling you’re left with from a positive experience will remain with you for a lifetime.

For a 60th birthday gift for men, we recommend The Rally Self Drive for One package in Gauteng. This is perfect for the driving enthusiast looking for the ultimate rally driving experience. Participants will learn all about drive lines and the finesse of rally car driving and encounter a rush of adrenalin around the Bushveld and progress to the Special Stage. This is a high speed unknown road, all the while taking instruction from your navigator. What a thrill!

This next package is one of the most sought after gift experiences available in South Africa and would make the quintessential 50th birthday gift for men. Learning to fly a helicopter (Krugersdorp Airport) offers a dream come true. A qualified, experienced flight instructor facilitates this one-on-one experience. After a session in theory it culminates in a twenty-minute flight where the fortunate recipient will have the opportunity to manoeuvre, hover and fly the helicopter independently.

For a fun outing why not treat the birthday boy to an exciting day of 4×4’ing in the magical sand dunes of Atlantis. A mere thirty minutes from Cape Town, you’d think you had travelled deep into the heart of the Sahara Desert. This is optimal for those looking to rev their engines and test limits, with a full three hours of activity. This jeep tour package includes permits, dune jumping, sand boarding, lunch, and tour guide or map; undoubtedly a superb 40th birthday gift for men.

We love the Helicopter Hop with Champagne Mountaintop Stop for Two. This romantic experience will leave you both breathless as you fly from Krugersdorp airport taking in the all the sights en route to a beautiful mountaintop for a thirty minute stop to sip champagne and enjoy the vistas below. We believe this is an ultimate 30th birthday gift.

The Mangwanani Shwe Shwe Full Day Spa for One available in Johannesburg, Durban or Cape Town will speak to anyone for sheer pampering and spoils. This package would make an excellent 50th birthday gift for women. With seven lavish treatments, including a complimentary Shwe Shwe Gown, light breakfast, lunch with a selection of desserts, limited complimentary bar and Amarula and chocolates on departure, you know satisfaction is certainly guaranteed. One will come away feeling refreshed, revitalised and a new woman!

Whichever package you decide on, you can rest assured that each and every offering has been personally vetted by the Bucket List Genie herself and comes with a Happiness Guarantee.
