Do you find yourself with Christmas around the corner but you still have no idea what to give your loved ones? Luckily you have us – and luckily we have our customers. Because they have the right gift to put under the Christmas tree for everyone and every budget. Take a look at our tips – you’re sure to find some inspiration there.

A day’s skiing in the Engadine
Down the slopes on your skis or snowboard, stopping only for a delicious lunch in a mountain restaurant and a Schümlipflümli for dessert. The fabulous mountains of the Upper Engadine have three ski areas to suit every taste – Corvatsch, Diavolezza and Lagalb. And if you book the skiing day gift at least 15 days in advance, you will receive an early bird discount of up to 30%.

The most luxurious cream in the world
Cell Premium by Dr. Gerny is the most luxurious face cream in the world. Made of plant stem cells, this highly effective product was developed by celebrity dermatologist Dr. Gerny and packaged in a glittering box that emphasises pure luxury. Granted – at 3,800 francs, it’s no cheap gift. But if this is too hefty a price tag for you, do visit their website where there are also other more affordable products for sale, such as Bora Bora sea salt for 29 francs.

A Teleclub subscription
Are you looking for a gift for someone whose favourite thing is cosy evenings on the coach? Then a Teleclub subscription is just the ticket! From exclusive live sport to gripping films and spellbinding series, here you will find everything the TV fan’s heart desires.

A ticket to a musical
You simply cannot go wrong with a musical, because the world of music is so diverse that it offers something for every taste. We have three suggestions for under the Christmas tree: Nice Time Productions brings the eighties back to the stage with Footloose from 3 January 2019 onwards and pays tribute to the magnificent Tina Turner from 4 April 2019 with Simply the Best. And from 3 to 7 April 2019, the Walensee Stage will be sharing the enchanting love story of two great chanson singers with Edith Piaf and Marlene Dietrich – The Musical in the Zurich Maag-Halle.

A romantic book
Boring? Not at all! After all, what can be better in winter than curling up in front of a roaring log fire with a cup of tea and a captivating book. Our recommendation: The Magical Gift by Victoria Nicholson. This Lucerne author’s debut novel is just right for romantic winter evenings.

A luminous clock
A great timepiece does not have to be expensive. But it must be extra special. We recommend something really extraordinary, one hundred percent made in Switzerland: the hands and dials of Traser watches are equipped with trigalight, which shines for years without an external source of energy. This is ideal for people who won’t let dense fog keep them from a skiing trip, or anyone who has to scare monsters out of the nursery at night and negotiate scattered Lego in the process.

A delicious fondue
Do you know someone who would like to be in the mountains over the holidays, but has no time? We have a great idea for a gift for them – a delicious fondue in a homely mountain chalet atmosphere right in the middle of Zurich. The Frau Holle fondue chalet in Sihlcity is open until 30 December. And while you’re there, why not combine your meal with a movie or some shopping.

Exclusive photographic art
The Swiss wildlife photographer Christoph Tänzer lingers for hours on the African savannah to get a perfect shot of the animals that live there. Each of his images captures a moment in time and are all the more precious for the fact that they are limited to fifteen prints each. If you like art, photography and wild animals, you should definitely visit his website.

A sunny winter weekend
How about escaping the cold season for a few days in the sun – without sitting in a plane for hours. Even though the water may not be warm enough for swimming, places like Cyprus, Mallorca and Sicily offer sunshine, warm weather, great sightseeing and delicious food early in the new year. And what’s more, it’s a great deal more affordable than during high season. Get there on our trusted airline.

A luxury car
Have you ever dreamed of putting the key to a Ferrari, Lamborghini or Porsche under the Christmas tree for someone special? Did you know that you can actually do this without having millions in the bank? With the Hertz Dream Collection, you can hire these luxury cars for a day or a weekend. Now that’s a gift that will make your loved one’s heart beat faster!
