Gift an experience with a Cathedral Cove Jet Gift Voucher

Need some help sussing out a sweet gift this Christmas? Cathedral Cove Jet is here to help!

As the year draws to a close the team at Cathedral Cove Jet are beginning to think about all those good things that Christmas and school holidays mean here in Whitianga, Coromandel.

The Coromandel has become such a popular destination for people seeking out that perfect summer holiday destination. We have so many beautiful beaches in the area to choose from. There are the more secluded locations like Lonely Bay and New Chums where you may be lucky enough to be the only people on the beach; the swelly surf beaches like Hot Water Beach and Whangamata where you can get out on a board and wash away all your troubles; and finally, those picture-perfect, postcard worthy beaches like Hahei and Cathedral Cove, perfect for that Instagram selfie.

If you’re looking for accommodation, whether it’s a laid-back campground or some luxury glamping, there are plenty of options to choose from. Just close your eyes and imagine yourself there… the warm breeze carries sweet summer tunes and the smell of someone cranking the bbq while the sound of the ocean laps at the edge of the beach calling us for that afternoon swim. In the background the family argues about the Christmas menu and all start talking about what to eat and drink on the big day, of course there are always Christmas gifts to think about too.

For the last few years, we and our extended family have changed the way we approach Christmas for a number of reasons. To reduce the stress on the day we have only one shared meal with the family (down from two or three!) and we do a ‘secret Santa’ with just one other adult to buy for. This has made a huge difference to stress levels over the festive period.

More and more we prefer to gift experiences or vouchers than material things. While it’s lovely to receive any gift from your loved ones they can so often miss the mark entirely and let’s face it, some people are really hard to buy for! We also have to start being more conscious and considerate of our environment and slow down on the high-level consumption we’ve become accustomed to. Experiences like sky diving, concert tickets or boat trips give us something to get excited about and look forward, then leave us with pictures and memories to take away and cherish for a lifetime. If you are looking to change up your gift giving this year Cathedral Cove Jet sells gift vouchers through our website so you won’t even need to come into a shop. Just print it off and pop it in an envelope under the tree and you’ve got your gift sorted. The great thing is the website will be open even on Christmas Day for those last-minute gifts you forgot you even needed.

Wishing you all a safe and happy Summer holiday wherever you are in the world from Cathedral Cove Jet in the sunny Coromandel.
