When thinking of gift ideas in London, there’s a good mantra to go by – a material object will bring short term happiness, whilst an experience will last a lifetime.
If you’re stuck trying to think of creative gift ideas in London for your friends/boyfriend/girlfriend/mum/dad/sibling, debating which t-shirt, bag or bottle of perfume to buy them (snore), just remember that in two years’ time, whatever you buy them will mostly likely have been forgotten or thrown away.
