If you want to give someone a special gift experience this Christmas but aren’t sure what they’d enjoy, Tinggly could be the answer.
The new service lets you select a price point – it’s starting with $125 (£80) but will launch $250 (£150) and $625 (£400) options in 2015 – and give the gift. The recipient can then choose an experience from across the globe. The options are displayed on a handy world map.
Tinggly’s collection includes experiences in 50 countries such as a helicopter flight over Las Vegas, a bungee jump at Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe and a walk with lions in South Africa. Each one is valid for two years from purchase.
The obvious benefit of Tinggly is that the person you’re giving the gift to can choose the experience and where in the world they want to have it. And if they end up not enjoying the one they plump for, it won’t be your fault!
