Birthday Gifts For The Brainy


A truly good birthday gift idea appeals to the recipient’s interests, and although there are plenty of experience gifts which appeal to those who enjoy the rough and tumble of outdoor pursuits or the thrill of a high octane adrenaline activity, some people prefer a more cerebral approach to having fun. For those who enjoy the pursuit of knowledge, there are plenty of experience days which will give them the chance to learn something and perhaps even discover a hidden passion for a new subject.





A trip to the National Space Centre is a really eye opening experience for anyone interested in the story of how man’s desire to conquer the realm beyond out earth lead to one of the most momentous moments in history. There are over 150 hands-on experiences housed in six interactive galleries, a 42 minute high rocket tower that you can travel up in a glass elevator, and the UK’s largest planetarium where you can enjoy a 360º view of what lies beyond our world. Visitors also get to find out if they have what it takes to make it as a space explorer, discover how information that we obtain from space helps us with every day tasks like predicting the weather, and even see a rare piece of moon rock. Whether you know a total space nut who loves the idea of taking off into the void, or someone who is just beginning to appreciate how fascinating it all is, a trip to the National Space Centre makes a great birthday gift idea.

Perhaps you’re looking for a present for someone who has an interest in the past, in which case the world famous Yorvik Viking Centre allows visitors to experience the sights and sounds of a typical Viking village. With all the technology available to modern scientists, they have examined all the evidence available about our Viking ancestors and uncovered information about where they lived, how they travelled and even their diet to form a more accurate picture of Viking life than ever before, and the Yorvik Viking Centre brings it all to life.

So if you’re looking for birthday gift ideas for a bright spark then why not consider some mental stimulation with a fascinating activity day?
