Here at Woodlands HQ, we LOVE the festive period. After all, ’tis the season of crackling fires, twinkling lights, turkey sandwiches and bucks fizz for brekkie! What’s not to love, right?
Well, actually, there is something that’s unbeloved by many! While we all enjoy giving and receiving gifts round the Christmas tree, the journey getting to this point can be a long and arduous one. In fact, the prospect of shopping for that perfect something for your ‘hard-to-buy-for’ family members can leave even the most stoic of shoppers feeling flatter than a gingerbread man.
According to Forbes Magazine, the secret to being a happy and contented shopper is to spend money on experiences rather than things – stories not stuff! After all, the thrill of receiving a ‘thing’ quickly fades, but the joy and memory of an experience lasts a lifetime!
With the above in mind, we’ve put together a Woodlands Gift Guide to help you in your quest to dazzle your nearest and dearest with your super savvy shopping skills. And the best bit, you can just click ‘buy now’, pour yourself a congratulatory mulled wine and put your feet up. Slainte!
The BIG ONE for that special someone
How about booking a ridiculously romantic hot tub hideaway in one of our luxury lodges? In doing so, we pretty much guarantee you’ll earn yourself a kiss under the mistletoe this Christmas.

The wannabe PGA golfer in your life
For the golfing enthusiast in your life, giving the gift of teeing off on the Woodlands Estate will get you some serious brownie points!
