Stuck for ideas this Christmas? Or do you just want to get something a little different this year? A Covid Christmas can be a very difficult challenge to overcome, but with Exciting Escapes, you just might do it. Don’t believe us? Here are 10 reasons why you should gift an exciting escape voucher this Christmas.

10. You want them to use it

During times of lockdown, it can be extremely difficult to plan any sort of event with family and friends. You may be wondering if you’ll be able to actually plan anything at all. That is why here at Exciting Escapes, we have extended all of our gift vouchers by two years. 

Now you don’t need to worry about your gift expiring before your loved ones can use it, regardless of how much longer we are stuck indoors.

9. They’re really enjoyable

People love escape rooms. They’re giant, life-sized puzzles full of mystery and intrigue. Depending on the room, you could be a 1920’s detective, or how about a 1950’s spy? Being in an escape room, especially with friends, helps to visit a sort of nostalgic wonder. Just because we grow up, doesn’t mean we have to be a grown-up all the time. Let out your inner child.

 We’re also Top Rated on TripAdvisor at each of our branches: Portsmouth, BasingstokeSouthampton, and Croydon. You can read some glowing customer testimonials. You can be sure they’ll enjoy their time with us. Besides, there’s always a fresh mystery to unravel.

8. You don’t know what to buy

We’ve all been there. It’s getting close to Christmas and you just can’t think of a good gift for that one person. Instead of looking around shops, and scouring the internet in frustration, why don’t you end your struggles quickly and easily?

With an Exciting Escapes voucher, you’re getting them a good gift, without having to spend loads of time searching for the right thing. 

7. You’re concerned about safety

None of us really know what’s happening with these lockdowns and restrictions, except that we’re definitely not meant to be meeting people outside our group or household. With one of our Exciting Escape Rooms, you don’t need to have that worry. We have strict Covid Safety policies, that don’t infringe upon your enjoyment.

Groups are organised so they never come into contact with other groups, and everything in the room is thoroughly cleaned prior to use. We only ask that you help us keep everything as safe as possible and wear a mask during your time with us. If you forget yours, we provide masks for our guests free of charge, and all our staff wear them too.

6. You want to give them some choice

Why should you do all of the work? With an Exciting Escapes voucher, you give them the experience – but are letting them choose which of our 22 experiences they’d like to enjoy. 

Would they prefer Southampton’s 1950’s Cold War experience, Basingstoke’s 1960’s Assassination Plot, or Portsmouth’s 1990’s Christmas Disco? Whatever they like, we surely have something that’d interest them. 

5. You like supporting local businesses

I don’t know about you, but I’m tired of giving my money to large corporations that get around paying tax and only make the fat cats even richer. Why should you spend your hard-earned money making the rich richer, when you could support small, local businesses. 

The people working and running Exciting Escapes are just like you, trying to get by and support their families. Isn’t it better to use your money to help your local economy, then have it simply sit in another billionaire’s pocket?

4. You’re on a tighter budget this year

We’re all in the same boat. Thanks to restrictions and furlough schemes, earnings have taken a massive hit – but bills and housing costs haven’t become any cheaper. All of us are strapped for cash, which can make Christmas an absolute nightmare. 

That’s why until the 30th November 2020, we’re offering 15% off any gift voucher. Simply use the code VIP15 at checkout, or quote it if ordering by phone. Hopefully, it makes Christmas a little easier for all of us this year.

3. You want to get them something meaningful

As the stereotype goes, dads just get socks year after year, after year. So what if you’re tired of buying the same gift for someone, year in, year out? The best gifts are those you can share with the people closest to you. 

So get them an escape room voucher. It’s a great way to spend quality time together, and give them a memory they can cherish, rather than another pair of socks in the back of the drawer. 

2. You want to clear multiple people at once

Let’s be honest, thinking of gift ideas for each person that you know can be difficult, exhausting, and expensive. So why not knock a couple of people out of the way in one savvy click? 

To them, it’ll seem like a really kind and thoughtful experience. For you, it’ll save time, effort and money. It’s a win-win.

1. To give them something to look forward to!

After the way this year has gone, giving someone an enjoyable experience for when our freedoms are properly reinstated is a gift worth its weight in gold. I don’t know about you, but I cannot wait to meet up with my friends and do something.

So why not give them the best gift of all? Quality time with their closest family and friends. Even if it doesn’t happen this Christmas, it’ll still be a gift they’ll never forget.
