It doesn't really matter if you've been naughty or nice this year - the gift experience would appear to offer rewards for all this Christmas.

How about a nice pampering massage, an indulgent gourmet dining experience or an adrenaline-fixing bungee jump?

For the truly naughty and broken-hearted, there is even a 'Forget Your Ex' experience - in which a voodoo doll and some pins is one of several activities to choose from, for HK$1,000. Or try the 'Who needs men when there is wine' tasting.

The 'Forget Your Ex' experience is found on TaDa! (, which offers 26 themed gift packages from HK$500 to HK$15,000. The more unusual ones include pole dancing lessons for the boys in the HK$800 Boy's Moments package, a private snowboarding session for three at Shenzhen Window World in the HK$2,500 Thrill package, and a cover girl makeover and photo shoot for HK$15,000. Besides TaDa!, Red Packet ( and Spoilt ( also offer packages that offer a range of experiences.

Red Packet provides 12 themed packages ranging from HK$488 to HK$4,888. Simply Tasty or Simply Pampered, each at HK$488, offers traditional dining and pampering experiences, as well as some more unusual options such as eyebrow design and trimming - a great gift for Santa Claus himself.

Kids Play (HK$788) includes some art, pampering and sporty options, a day's workshop with the theatre group Faust, or a singing lesson. The Very Him package (HK$1,888) offers the man in your life the choice of a Superbike ride on a race circuit or a range of cigars and vintage whisky at a private club. At the top end is Extravaganza at HK$4,888, which gives you a dinner cooked by a chef at your home and a helicopter ride over Hong Kong, among other choices.

At Spoilt, there are about 80 experiences in price from HK$300 to HK$18,000. These include 'Make Your Own Band CD' at HK$1,300, a day learning the ropes on a pirates' ship for HK$1,480 and a HK$1,000 'WW2 Battlefields Walk for Two' that takes you on a guided tour of some of the city's second world war battle sites.

At the top end is an experience to film your own 'Life Story Video Documentary' at HK$6,800 and a full day of Formula racing driving and training at HK$18,000.

The company says it will exchange one package for another if the experience turns out to be the wrong choice. You can also buy gift vouchers.
