The top searched experience is ‘escape rooms’ which has had a 21.05% increase since January 2021. The aim is to solve a series of puzzles, using elements of the room, to escape before the time runs out. Find Me A Gift say: “Escape rooms are hugely popular, and this is your chance to give one a go! Solving the puzzles is extremely satisfying and rummaging around the room trying to find the clues is guaranteed to get you laughing.”

The second most popular experience was afternoon tea with a huge 200% search increase. Find Me A Gift says: “The main attraction of an afternoon tea of course is the delicious food you will be eating. You can enjoy a delicious afternoon tea spread, which is likely to include a selection of freshly made sandwiches, scones served with butter, jam and cream, a selection of miniature cakes, and the all-important pot of tea or coffee! What’s not to love?”

Another popular post-lockdown activity is a family photo shoot, which saw a 450% search increase. Find Me A Gift says: “With how quick time is passing, capturing special memories with family can allow you to hold onto precious photos. Why not create a scrapbook or photo album with these pictures?”

A spa break cam out as another top choice for a post-lockdown summer experience and had a staggering 371.43% search increase. Find Me A Gift says: “This is a brilliant way for you and a loved one, or for your favourite couple to destress, and have a proper catch-up!”
