Christmas is the time for giving, and what better way to treat the ones you love than to the give the gift of memories?
Physical gifts can be fun to unwrap, but the vast majority are soon forgotten about. With the gift of experience, you can help a person to create memories that could last a lifetime!
As such, we've taken a look at some of the best Christmas experience gifts available in the fine county of Norfolk. Hopefully you'll find the perfect gift for your loved ones.
Sandringham House and Gardens
Sandringham has been country retreat of four generations of British monarchs from King Edward VII through to Queen Elizabeth II, and is a must for anyone living in or visiting North Norfolk. The Country Park is open free of charge to the public, but if you want to enter Sandringham House itself and walk among the spectacular gardens you will have to purchase a ticket. Individual, group or season tickets are available, making a great gift, and giving your loved one something truly special to look forward to in 2019!
There are plenty of experimental packages that would make great gifts for an adult make but one of the most unique would be a tour of The English Whiskey Company in Roudham, Norfolk.
The English Whiskey Company run a variety of tours which are an absolute must for a whiskey lover. The St Georges Tour guides you through the distilling floor and explains how whiskey is made, before you move into the warehouse to behold the whiskey in their casks, before finishing by sampling some of the produce.

If your family are more wine than whiskey drinkers, then a vineyard tour could prove to be a brilliant gift. Winbirry Vineyard in Surlingham offers a number of vineyard and tasting experiences which are a wine-lover's dream!
The vineyard tours take place throughout the year, and are conducted by head winemaker Lee Dyer. Lee explains the methods used in the vineyards, as well as providing information on the grapes grown at Winbirri and the wine they produce. After visiting the vineyard, the tour proceeds to the winery where you will learn how the grapes are transformed into wine.
