Top Christmas Gift Ideas For The Wild At Heart, Will Create Memories That Last Forever.
As Christmas approaches, and thoughts turn to giving the ideal gifts, Kent based animal conservation charities, The Aspinall Foundation, Howletts Wild Animal Park and Port Lympne Hotel & Reserve have released their top Christmas present ideas for 2018, that will offer something to look forward to, long after the fun of the festivities is over.
Designed to appeal to all ages, whilst creating the joy of lasting memories, gifts range from vouchers to Annual Park Memberships, Animal Adoptions, unforgettable overnight stays, once in a lifetime animal encounters and enthralling ‘hands on’ experiences.
Bob O’ Connor, Managing Director said: ‘If you’re struggling to buy the perfect present and are dreading the thought of hitting the high streets, we’ve got some ideal Christmas gifts available in our online shop and in our Gatehouses, perfect for the wild at heart and animal lovers alike.’
Top of the list, whether you have been naughty or nice, is the gift of an overnight stay at Port Lympne Hotel & Reserve, where choices of short breaks range from seasonal glamping to luxury lodges and can include the opportunity to wake up in a tiger’s world at Tiger Lodge or come face to face with a magnificent lion at Lion Lodge.
For those who love wildlife, the Annual Park Memberships to either Port Lympne or sister park Howletts, offer the gift of unlimited visits to either park for an entire year – there’s even a Dual Park Membership available, covering unlimited free entry to both award winning parks.
Alternatively, why not give the animal lover in your life, the chance to come face to face with their favourite species, by purchasing an unforgettable Animal Encounter or, give them the chance to really find out what it takes to work with some of the most endangered animals on the planet with an Experience Day.
Adventurers and budding Attenborough’s will love a private ranger guided safari at Port Lympne where they can potentially feed black rhino or Kent’s only giraffe herd and for the wild life photographer, a one to one photography day with the parks’ resident expert photographer is bound to thrill.
For a gift that keeps on giving, an Animal Adoption could be ideal. Whilst adoption packages vary, all adoptions will help The Aspinall Foundation save a species. Or, why not purchase a gift for one of the animal sections at Howletts or Port Lympne from their Amazon Wish List?
Meanwhile, in the gift shops at both parks, shoppers will find an array of soft toys, books, ornaments, jewellery and stocking fillers, alongside a range of bespoke Christmas cards, designed just for The Aspinall Foundation, where proceeds of sales will benefit the charity.
In related news, The Aspinall Foundation has also announced that they have teamed up with GiveAsYouLive, which will see shoppers who have signed up to the scheme, raise vital funds for the conservation charity at no extra cost.
Bob added:‘Christmas is all about giving and with these wonderful gifts, you are not only giving the joy of lasting memories but also giving something back, as purchases will help us continue our vital conservation work with endangered species at our wild animal parks.’
