We all lament commercialism – and yet every year we fall victim to the need to buy more stuff each Christmas.
Is there an alternative to show someone you care?
Of course there is! Buy them an experience rather than stuff!
Things provide only limited happiness. We’ve all waited a long time to buy that one special object, but when it arrives… after a few weeks the novelty wears off and where is it put? In your already cluttered cupboard!
There are at least two good reason possessions don’t provide long term happiness (and probably a lot more).
1) You simply can’t keep up with progress. (Or, if you prefer – the Jones’ next door!)
2) The novelty always wears off – sometimes it might take a few weeks, other times it’s a few hours. But eventually even YOU will get bored of your latest new CD.
Memories on the other hand, last a life time.
Think about it. Do you remember doing things last year? Or do you remember an object? I bet you remember DOING something.
And if memories aren’t enough of a reason for you – think about the planet. How much of the Christmas clutter this year is going into landfill?
Giving an experience (providing you aren’t jetting someone off somewhere using airmiles) could well be the more environmentally friendly Christmas gift this year.
Why are we telling you this?
Because Murder Mysteries are some of the lowest cost experiences you can give friends and family.
Each of our games provides 3 or more hours of fun.
For an amateur sleuth – or someone who watches or reads crime drama – then these are ideal gifts.
They are hugely memorable evenings. Just look at a few of our reviews if you don’t believe us. And as for photos… well, you should see some of the ones sent in by customers over the years…
We have gift voucher boxes available at just £20. They’re made of paper and cardboard – so all recyclable after use, and we’ll even post them to you flat packed to save shipping space if you ask us to. Ideal for sending overseas.
Or if you have the money and want to do something really specially for your family – why not commission a fully bespoke evening? We write to order and can even come and host your party for you. You just have to ask!
I used the 12 character version for a birthday party, and it was a blast! Such a fun theme with familiar fairytale characters – loved it!!
We played this with a group of friends and it was hilarious! The only downside was our aching sides, I’ve never laughed so much!
Just wanted to say what terrific fun we had on New Year’s Eve with your Murder mystery ‘Death on the Nile’ It was made even more fun because the person playing Tommy Blooper went on the web to find Tommy Cooper jokes and added them to his script. The whole evening was hilarious, Thank you.
To say we had fun…………-……an understatement!-!! Thank you to Jo who answered questions and queries so quickly. Look forward to the next time!!!
