That finishes up our Top 5 Experience Picks for Kids. We hope we’ve given you a little inspiration for alternative gifts to buy and to help Give Adventure Not Tat this year.

Say NO to boring presents, say NO to mind-numbing electronics that get used once, say NO to boxsets, say NO to plastic and say NO to itchy jumpers from your Gran.

Instead say YES to being outside, say YES to awesome adventures, say YES to jumping in the sea, say YES to spending time as a family, say YES to buying experiences and not tat this year.

This year choose adventure, choose outside and choose experiences.

Get out there and find your adventure…#AdventurePeople
