Buyagift Cinema Tickets With Dinner Smartbox Experience {Review}

If you were to ask me what’s at the top of my Christmas wish list I would definitely say some time for Chris and me to spend together as a couple. Life with a young family is busy and we never manage to find time just for ourselves. When buyagift asked me if I would like to review one of their experiences I decided to choose something from the Christmas gifts for couples category.

Buyagift is the UK’s leading provider of experience days. With over 4,500 experiences to choose from and a dedicated Christmas section, you can be sure to find the perfect gift this festive season.

Using the website is easy, there are lots of categories and filters to choose from. I searched the Christmas gifts for a couple categories and the cinema tickets with dinner smartbox caught my eye. The experience included a pair of Vue cinema tickets to a film of your choice and a three-course meal with wine at Zizzi, ASK, Bella Italia or Prezzo. Priced at £49.99 I thought this was excellent value for money.

I really liked that I could view the partner guidebook before purchasing to check exactly where we could use the smartbox voucher. You can also view the set menu online so you know exactly what to expect.

Once my smartbox arrived, redeeming the experience was quick and easy. The gift box includes your voucher codes needed to redeem your experience and a partner guidebook. Visiting the buyagift homepage I found a clickable ‘Got A Voucher’ option which navigated me to a page to arrange my experience. I entered the required codes from the voucher which took me to a page where I could book the meal part of the experience. I could also generate the codes required to redeem my cinema tickets.

Booking the meal was really simple and an email arrived promptly to confirm my booking. I chose Prezzo at Media City in Manchester. I chose this location as it’s a great place to visit with ample parking.

Friday night arrived and it was time for our experience. We arrived for our booking a little early but it was no problem to seat us. The set menu we were given was slightly different from the one displayed on the website but there were still plenty of things we liked.

We opted for a soft drink instead of wine which was no problem at all. Our starters arrived promptly after ordering and we enjoyed those too.

Our main meals followed, these were equally as enjoyed. Soon it was time for dessert, I chose the classic Italian tiramisu which was the best I’ve ever tasted.

Once our meal was over it was time to walk the short distance to the Vue cinema. We redeemed our codes effortlessly and took our seats to watch ‘Murder On The Orient Express’.

We had a really pleasant evening, it was lovely to spend some time together. Overall I found both redeeming and booking the experience very easy. I would definitely recommend Buyagift if you are looking to treat someone to experience this festive season.
