Christmas gifts for the whole family

26th October 2017

When buying gifts, it’s easy to shop for someone you already know and are very close to. But life can be very hectic at times, so how about we make things slightly easier for you, by suggesting a few ideas?


Give them miles, give them experiences, give them 1/3 off rail fares…
This is the best gift you could give, but you already know that, now spread the love!

How many people do you know that…

• want to go home during uni breaks

• would like to visit you more often

• wants to explore every bit of Britain

• have never been to Scotland before


Whether you’re 16 or 60, there’s a card for you, giving you a 1/3 off your rail fares for just £30 a year.


Surprise your loved ones with a Railcard and let them enjoy Britain by rail.


Not only does this little card save you money when traveling, but we’ve teamed up with some big brands to save you more money on the things you like doing best; including up to 60% off theatre tickets, 20% off Virgin Experience Days and big discounts on hotels and holidays, to name but a few!



Table for two

Some of the happiest memories are made over dinner. This Christmas, take your loved ones to a restaurant.


London bound? Try some of the best festive menus on offer this year…

  • Sarastro, West End - With a price tag of £40 per head, this quirky location will give you a merry time with a Mediterranean touch.
  • Galley, Islington - A traditional approach to Christmas with amazing starters, mains and desserts, and not to mention a variety of good wine and prosecco.
  • The Jugged Hare, Barbican - After a gastronomic experience here, the turkey won’t be the only thing stuffed. These generous portions can be enjoyed for around £95 per head (and the staff is more than accommodating).
  • The Providers, Marylebone - Choices, choices, choices! And then some more. But good ones! A specially designed menu to satisfy each and every one., This mouth-watering menu by Peter Gordon can be enjoyed for around £50pp. Don’t forget to try the cinnamon shortbread crumb (you’ll be thanking us!).


Theatre Tickets

You can’t go wrong with a trip to the theatre. Try something festive and leave the regular shows for next year, especially if you’re taking younger people:

  • Snow White & Rose Red – Battersea Arts Centre
  • The Snow Queen – Polka Theatre, South Wimbledon
  • Alice in Winterland – Rose Theatre Kingston

Not your taste? We’ve for loads of theatre offers available to Railcard holders. Find out more by visiting the offers section!


A trip to a modern day Willy Wonka factory

You don't need a golden ticket for this one. Everyone loves chocolate, and if you say you don’t you’re a liar, and Santa doesn’t like liars! This year, take your family to Birmingham and enjoy a Christmas celebration weekend at the Cadbury World.

Kids will get a chance to enjoy a festive special at the Aladdin pantomime between 27th and 30th December, whilst enjoying a plethora of chocolate options.


Gift Cards

You’ve tried your best and spent hours trying to find the perfect gift but alas, ideas are not coming down your ‘brain chimney’. No matter who it’s for, teens who want to spend time shopping with their mates, the mother who loves a good discount, for him & her, or even for the grandparent who loves a good old-fashioned scarf and coat. Visit a department store and load up a gift card with some money. They’ll absolutely adore you for this!
