I had a pretty great long weekend and am starting the week off with some fun news to share. I’ve been asked to be a Sambassador for Samba Days – a company that offers gift-boxes for unique experiences. Now if you’re like me, you have no idea what that means. I honestly have to tell you I was pretty excited when I received their package and found out what it is all about. Basically instead of buying someone a present like a book, CD, or clothing, you can buy them a gift card for an experience – like flight instruction for two, a wine tour in the Niagara Valley or an overnight stay at a hotel in downtown TO.
Here’s their idea in a nutshell:
“Samba Days offers unique gift-box experiences themed according to lifestyle: Adventure, Body & Soul,
Getaway, Gourmet, Life & Culture and Wine (each has more than 75 activities from which to choose).
From Vancouver to Halifax, we offer more than 500 experiences across Canada including skydiving,
sword fighting, exclusive spa packages, wine tours and gourmet getaways.”
What makes it even better is that it was my goal to show Jason the best of TO/Ontario while he’s here for the next few months (so he’ll want to come back after winter!) and it was perfect timing when they asked me to be involved!
So from August til November I’ll get to go on one experience a month and document it here on my blog. I’ve picked some pretty cool/fun things to do – things I’ve never done before – and I can’t wait to share them with you!
If you haven’t guessed, this is a sponsored post and they are giving me three experiences to write about their company and gift boxes. I ONLY participate in promotions/sponsored posts/events for things that I actually like, use or would do on my own, so you know that this is going to be AWESOME!
