With 2019 being heralded as the year that exiled single use plastic, more emphasis than ever is being placed on giving ‘stories and not stuff’ this Christmas.

With that in mind, Wye Valley and Forest of Dean Tourism has created a new Christmas Gift Guide “featuring plenty of memorable and unique experiences to make the perfect clutter-free gift”.

A spokesman said: “Choose from adrenalin-pumping off-road driving adventures or even the challenge of taking to a giant 3G swing suspended over a quarry, or maybe opt for something a little more sedate such as a beekeeping or wild foraging weekend break.

“Divided into five sections: Gifts for Foodies, Top Tipples, Arts and Crafts, Action Packed Activities and Experiences and Attractions, the guide has plenty of choice to delight even the trickiest recipient, with a wide choice of e-vouchers that can be purchased online right ‘up to the wire’ for those leaving their shopping a little late.”
