I know it is still weeks before Christmas. Already I am trying to organise myself so Christmas is as it should be - a blessing. Living in Rainbow Beach, we like to stay for Christmas, as what more do you want? The beach? A pool? Air conditioning? A fuss free Christmas?

This is designed to help you find easy well loved presents. These days we think about of eco-friendly, fairtrade, health-related decisions to guide our purchases. Kids have so many "dodads" already- instead focus on an experience. Here are our ideas, so you, your family and friends enjoy a wonderful day:

1. Accommodation

Book a short break or a long break for the two of you or your family. You will be giving a memory and a celebration. Of course, if you are like us and happy to stay put this festive season - give a short break deal instead where they can cash it in later in the year.

2. Christmas Lunch

You are not just buying food. You are giving a gift that says "I love you so much I don't want you to sweat over a stove, or worry about a menu, or brave the hectic supermarkets for Christmas Day". Book early if you would like to celebrate Christmas Lunch in a Rainbow beach restaurant. Also an attractive option, Judy has some elegant providore or fresh seafood options for easy Christmas lunches in Rainbow Beach.

3. Dolphin Ferry Tour.

What a bargain. THE most cost effective wildlife encounter plus a boat cruise to boot.

4. Go Extreme

If you want to buy an experience don't look past our extreme adventures.. Skydiving, Scuba Diving, Paragliding and Hangliding. They will definitely will impress all ages. What a suprise!

5. Learn to Surf lesson

The whole family can do this together. Some family members did this last time they stayed here and as Jodie (pictured), thirty something Mum of 4 said,"if I can do it, anyone can!"

6. A Pamper Package

Accommodation, Massage and Dining Voucher. Very romantic. If you let us know it is for a special occasion, you can bet Sid and Judy will ensure you will be looked after at Rainbow Getaway.

7. Massage, Facial, Beauty Treatments

Organise a trip out here and then surprise your loved ones with a relaxing pedicure, manicure, massage and facial combo. All is available right here in Rainbow Beach, and it will come with a personal recommendation.

8. Fraser Island Tour

Seeing Fraser Island is a must when you visit Rainbow Beach. Enjoy the views and commentary. Relax and let someone else do the driving and catering.

9. Shopping vouchers

Surf shops and boutiques, you can spoil your them when they find something they love here in Rainbow Beach. We even have Bessie handbags created locally from contemporary and recycled vintage and retro fabric, you'll find their online store at

10. Get active

Not only for the youngsters, and always a good present - buy them a fishing reel or rod, a kite, a boogie board, surfboard, skim board, a football, a cricket seteven a frisbee and enjoy an active holiday in Rainbow Beach's uncomplicated outdoors.
