As we grow up, the best part of Christmas transforms from the presents we get into the ones that we give. To make our loved ones happy becomes prior among all the hustle the winter holidays come hand in hand with. Here are 5 Christmas gift ideas with which you can’t go wrong.
Christmas Gift Card from Beyond Budapest
This year, surprise your loved ones with an unforgettable, personalized experience! Choose Beyond Budapest’s thematic walking tours which guide its participants around hidden or underrated places like the Gas Factory of Óbuda or the infamous 8th district. These tours offer a unique opportunity to visit and discover parts of the capital city which wouldn’t be available otherwise. The gift card’s future owners will be able to choose among the advertised, Hungarian (only) walking tours, and they can also determine which date is appropriate for them. Around Christmastime you can purchase the gift cards on last year’s price and with an extended validity: a whole year. Stay away from the busy shopping malls, get yourself comfortable in the armchair, and purchase your gift card online on Beyond Budapest’s website.
