All We Want For Christmas Is You! | How To Support Your Local Operators

How’s the Christmas shopping going? 

If you’re having a bit of a mare trying to find something new and improved, thoughtful and loving, thrilling and exciting AND you’re trying to avoid busy malls and shops AND you’re not sure your online order will arrive in time, look no further than booking your local operator for a completely awesome Christmas gift experience.

Our local operators need extra support this year and many have gift vouchers you can purchase or just make a booking to do something extra special for someone or your group of hardworking staff who will enjoy an awesome experience after a bit of a tough year.

Just imagine the look on Dad’s face when he gets a gift voucher for V8 Trikes for a trip around our beautiful Tauranga, Mount Maunganui and surrounds. 

What a treat - him and mum will be chuffed to bits when they get to experience an absolute thrill ride as they blat and explore with our very own Nigel. The man, the myth, the damn V8 Trike Legend.

The look on Mum’s face will say it all when you book her a massage at Thai Touch or one of the many other amazing therapeutic treatments here.  Mum deserves a treat just for her and at the very least, some time out before and after the Christmas madness.  Take Mum for a cheeky gin or two at Miss Gees and treat her to some delicious fare as well. Miss Gees is one of our local favourites and set in the heart of Tauranga it's the perfect place to sip and dine and just people watch or catch up on what's been going on. 

What about Nana and Papa this Christmas?  How about booking them on a day out on one of our many ocean explore excursions such as Bay Explorer Dolphin and Wildlife tours?  It’s one of those types of trips you pop on your bucket list but don’t always get around to doing it.  Whilst you’re at it, book yourself on the day with them too because time really is so precious. 

Thinking of corporate gifts too? 

A blat on the trike for your work mates is always well received, a day out fishing is the perfect unwind we all need after 2021 or maybe you want to book a  virtual reality experience over at The Cave - Papamoa. 

We spoke to a group that went to The Cave this year and they were blown away by the experience and we can tell you first hand how hyped one of them was when they returned “back to earth”. From blue whales and escape room experiences let us tell you the hype is real. 

We all know our operators have had it harder than most this year so we want to reach out to you and invite you to buy a gift from your local operator this Christmas.  From fishing trips to dessert bars in the Mount, to gins and tasty fare at our many wonderful eateries and bars, there's lots to choose from this time of year that really will make a big difference to our local operators.

Are you an operator and you’re looking for Christmas and Summertime bookings? Let us know and we’ll blast it all over our social media.  Let us know if you have Christmas gift vouchers too so we can sing that from the rooftops for you as well and let everyone know.
