Gifting Season is Sooner Than You Think

Gifting Season is Sooner Than You Think

Yes, you read that right. We’re still a while away from Christmas but the gifting season is well upon us! The Office for National Statistics (ONS) has officially decreed September and October as the two months of the year when most people were born – or, to put it more bluntly, have their birthday each year.

Giving gifts, however, is a statistically stressful endeavour, 36.7% of people surveyed by GoDataFeed find the pressure of searching for the right gift time-consuming, albeit fun. And did you know that 11% of men skip buying gifts altogether because of stress-related procrastination?

Being a peak time for new humans making their gracious entry into the world, DoubleTree by Hilton Dunblane Hydro is always on call to serve up a variety of solutions for the special occasion. Why not ease the frantic search for that perfect gift and let us spoil your loved ones in our serene Perthshire retreat? From monetary gift vouchers to beauty treatment vouchers, your loved ones will be won over.


A Luxurious Day of Pampering

Ranging from £25 beauty treatment vouchers to a full-blown overnight pamper break for two, a spot of professional pampering can never go amiss with anyone. The monetary vouchers offer flexibility for those who just want to pay in full or part for accommodation, add a room upgrade, lunch or a bottle of bubbly for the bedroom.

The pamper package, on the other hand, includes an amazing package with a choice of Mini Facial Elemis Superfood Pro-Radiance, Massage Elemis Freestyle Deep Tissue, and Foot Massage Elemis Best Foot Forward treatments. Plus, the gift-bearer gets unlimited use of the indoor pool, sauna, steam room and whirlpool, and a top culinary experience with our famous buffet breakfast.


Whisked Off to a Weekend Night Away

A perennially popular option for your other half or a couple you might know, our overnight break vouchers are always a gift to remember for the receiver/s. Escaping to the Scottish countryside is already a reward in itself – on top of that we offer elegantly styled rooms, a selection of top-notch relaxing facilities and myriad activities to take part in during your stay.

There’s no better gift than quality time spent with the best company, so don’t hesitate to sign off this present for that deserving someone. Choose a midweek overnight break or a weekend overnight break for less than you think, with rates starting from £119 per room – including breakfast and dinner for two.

Selection of Gift Vouchers from £25 and Birthday Gift Vouchers

Those who are on a budget or don’t like limiting their gift recipients with a prescribed present can look to our array of gift vouchers – in denominations of £25, £50, £75, £100 and £250 – to sort their gifting priorities. Vouchers are sent via email or post according to your preference and can be exchanged for any service at the DoubleTree by Hilton Dunblane Hydro.

Since we know a thing or two about giving gifts, we also have a range of birthday gift vouchers tailor made to wow your loved ones.


Feasting at The Kailyard by Nick Nairn

And of course, what would our gifts be without Nick Nairn’s expert gastronomical touch? The Kailyard is a staple feature of our overnight break vouchers and pamper packages. For foodies, a visit to Nick’s very own kitchen is a dream come true. Fresh Scottish salmon for starters, scrabster halibut for mains, and berry trifle for dessert is not a bad way to spend a birthday this autumn.

So what are you waiting for? Make those celebrating September and October birthdays happy today.
