This year, Celestial Gift Experiences is proud to celebrate 10 years as South Africa’s number one gift experience provider.
Established in 2005, and competing amongst many other similar companies, Celestial Gifts has stood the test of time by offering a highly personal service with unique activity gift vouchers which clients can purchase to gift their loved ones (or even themselves!).
Celestial Gifts was founded (and is still owned) by Odette Butcher, a.k.a the Bucket List Genie.
She decided to share her bucket list with South Africa by launching an online gift catalogue to include 220 of her favourite activities for fellow bucket list and adventure enthusiasts to enjoy across the country. Clients can easily navigate through the online catalogue by selecting their favourite activities using activity categories including Adventure, Air, Motorsport, Romance, Lifestyle, Water, Adrenaline, Health & Beauty and even Group activities for team building purposes.
The payment process is seamless, offering clients a safe and secure transaction process, after which the system sends them a voucher delivered straight to their inbox for easy printing and placement into a personalised card, or emailing onwards to a friend, colleague or family member. Booking an activity has never been easier, pairing clients with operators directly, or via the call centre where they’re guaranteed to receive a personalised service.
The Bucket List Genie is passionate about her business and the concept of bucket listing. With Richard Branson as one of her idols she’s challenged herself to attempt all the activities that she sells so that she has first-hand experience of the gift experiences before recommending them to her clients.
The activities she’s attempted are becoming super-crazy (okay, maybe not as crazy as Richard Branson, but she’s getting there) with a recent extreme marathon in the arid Jordan desert, and only a few weeks ago, a marathon along the Great Wall of China which included over 5000 steps. There’s no stopping Odette from tackling her bucket list, and when you speak to her in person she’ll ensure that you have all the encouragement you need to achieve your bucket list aspirations too, and to ensure that you make the right selection for those you’re buying gifts for.
Celestial Gifts caters to all tastes, ages and demographics. From basic adventures such as quad biking, sandboarding and horse riding to the more extreme such as rapp jumping, shark cage diving and bungee jumping, there’s something for everyone and never a reason to get bored, with new and exciting extraordinary activities added frequently to keep you on your toes.
Like and share your bucket list achievements with The Bucket List Genie on Facebook, and stand the chance to win a R1000 voucher to spend on your next Bucket List Adventure!
There’s no doubt about it, The Bucket List Genie and her team at Celestial Gifts absolutely deliver present day gift solutions.
