Who’s your Daddy?

RedBalloon experiences for dads of all shapes and sizes this Father’s Day

Wednesday August 17, 2011: Move aside socks, jocks and chocs - this Father’s Day give your dad an experience to remember!

Operating across Australia and New Zealand, RedBalloon.com.au specialises in unique and memorable experiences. People have enough “stuff” in their lives, and giving that special someone the gift of an experience they can remember and re-tell for years to come is a much more meaningful, personal and memorable gifting experience – for both the giver and the givee!

RedBalloon General Manager for Consumer Kristie Buchanan says, “experience based gifts are all about the memories – the initial thrill of a new possession wears off, but our customers can keep on reliving their experiences for years to come.”

With a range of more than 2,500 experiences available, from learning to fly a helicopter to brewing the perfect skinny latte, RedBalloon has something for even the fussiest of fathers!

And in addition to more than 2,500 experiences available online at RedBalloon.com.au, smart shoppers can also choose from a range of experiences in Target and BigW stores across the country.

The retail products are available in values from $99 to $299, and allow the recipient to choose from 100 experiences within a category, such as For Him, For Them and For Thrills. And just in time for Father’s Day, RedBalloon are launching three new products in 10 Target stores across the country – For The Chef , For Adventure and For Indulgence, all priced at $129. So there’s sure to be an option for those notoriously hard-to-buy-for dads.

Ms Buchanan says these new products make it easy to select a personal and fun gift for dad, without breaking the bank.

“The set price makes these experience vouchers such a great option, and by offering a choice of so many products, you can be confident that your dad will be able to find the perfect experience to enjoy. And he may even take you along for the ride!”
