Interesting gift ideas in London

Written by Khiet Le

We at eho chef understand your pain. Your mum’s/dad’s/sister’s or really any loved one’s birthday is coming up and you have no earthly idea what to buy. So you procrastinate and twiddle your thumbs and wonder if you just shove a £20 note in a card if that could suffice. However, fear not you may have used up all your good ideas for Christmas, but the team at eho chef have come up with some of the very best ideas for unique gift ideas all in good ol’ London town.

1. Urban Photography Safari Experience
The perfect gift for any budding photographer and costing a mere £29, this experience could well be the perfect option for your loved one. Led by award winning documentary photographer, James Milar, you will tour some of London's hippest spots including Shoreditch, West End and Saville Row where you will see the Capital in a whole new light. Using only your smart phone you will learn all about composition, lighting and how to take a truly cracking photo. Who knows - you could even use your new skills at your next dinner party for that perfect instagrammable moment.

2. The Big London Bake Gift Voucher
At eho chef we bring the food to you; offering private dinner parties for those in London and the surrounding areas. However, for those who would like to try their hands at a little bit of cooking - why not try out this fantastic pop-up. Offering you 90 minutes to create that winning bake alongside ingredients, instructions, tools and tips - it is a fantastic treat for any novice baker looking to show off their talents. Just make sure there’s no soggy bottoms!

3. 50 minute Thrill Tour experience
For those who were born and bred in London, it may well seem that you have done everything and seen all the sights. However, you have yet to try out the 50 minute thrill tour experience which takes place on the good ol’ Thames. Reaching dizzying speeds of 35 knots - this tour is certainly not for the faint hearted, but it will absolutely give you a day out to remember. With a comedy guide and the opportunity to purchase photos - we reckon this one isn't to be missed.

4. Sunrise Hot Air Balloon Flight for two
This one is at the pricier end of the spectrum, but we reckon it could well be worth it for this unique perspective tour of London. The perfect complement to an eho chef private dinner party, as part of this wonderful present you receive a full pilot briefing, an invitation to assist with the inflation of the balloon as well as the traditional champagne toast in honour of your flight. Not too shabby at all.
