Planning a Girls Day Out in London? + #Giveaway

Whether you’re planning a pre-Christmas weekend away for shopping in the Big Smoke, or you’re looking for an alternative gift to pop under the tree, it’s easy to create a girls day out in London with Buyagift.

It’s not always easy for mums to put time aside to spend with their daughters. Between working and keeping up with the hectic after-school schedule, quality time can easily be forsaken. Whether your daughter is a child, a tween, or a teen, give the gift of your time this festive period, with some awesome experiences, from Buyagift.

Girls Day Out in London

Whether you opt for a cultural West End theatre show and meal package, or you want to pepper your days with other experiences too, Buyagift enables you to personalise the perfect weekend away together. Here are five of my favourite gift ideas that I know my daughter would absolutely adore.

Theatre Show and meal package

Is any trip to London truly complete without a visit to the West End? Whether the little lady in your family is a tot or a teen, there’ll be a plethora of stage shows that they will love. Aladdin, Mamma Mia, Matilda, School of Rock, Wicked… the options truly are endless. And you don’t need to worry about costly dinner reservations, either. Your Buyagift package will include dining for you and your daughter, meaning you can relax and enjoy your evening or matinee experience.

Hotel Chocolat’s Children’s Chocolate Workshop for Two

From one sweet treat to another! Chocolate is a girl’s best friend, right? And Hotel Chocolat’s workshop for two is great fun for all school-aged children. Satisfy your sweet tooth as you discover the enticing world of cocoa. Including a welcome drink, an introduction to the cocoa bean delivered by experts, and a memorable chocolate decorating workshop, you will leave with a beautifully packaged edible masterpiece to enjoy at home.

Traditional Afternoon Tea for Two at B Bakery London

The ultimate cutesy culinary treat, Afternoon Tea at B Bakery is the ideal mother-daughter date. Located in the charming cobbled streets of Covent Garden – incidentally, not too far away from where you’ll need to be for your West End show of choice – spend an indulgent afternoon dining on mini cupcakes, pastries, and tasty artisan finger sandwiches.

Visit to Shrek’s Adventure and Two Course Meal at Planet Hollywood

There’s so much to do for mums and their daughters on London’s Southbank. Complement your theatre trip, with an additional day to appreciate one of the all-time animated greats, Shrek! Join Donkey, Puss, and Fiona on their madcap city adventure. Plus an exciting 4D experience awaits.  After which you’ll enjoy a star-studded meal at Planet Hollywood.

Harry Potter Walking Tour of London for Two

Sure, there’s always the Warner Bros. Studio Tour, but why not meander through central London to take in some of the city spots that brought Rowling’s most magical works to life. Hiding in and between notable Muggle London landmarks is the Ministry of Magic, the entrance to the Leaky Cauldron, and many more places where the films were actually filmed. The Harry Potter Walking Tour is one for inspiring Hermione Grangers, Luna Lovegoods, and even Bellatrixes of all ages!
