Make the most of the festive season with these great offers on tickets, experiences, shopping, winter breaks and more

December can be an expensive time of year, for obvious reasons. But you can make some great savings this month thanks to the brilliant deals and discounts that are available to Boundless members. 

With offers on everything from winter getaways to warming drinks, Christmas shopping to kids’ attractions, you can enjoy the most wonderful time of the year without breaking the bank.

1. Watch a festive movie

Wonka, from 8 December, save up to 37% 


A Christmas film is a great way to get the whole family into the mood for the big day, and new movie Wonka (released 8 December) could be just the ticket. Directed by Paul King (Paddington), this fresh take on Roald Dahl’s classic book Charlie and the Chocolate Factory stars Timothée Chalamet as the eccentric confectioner, and Hugh Grant as – wait for it – an Oompa Loompa. With appearances from Rowan Atkinson, Olivia Colman and Matt Lucas, plus a bunch of original songs by The Divine Comedy, this all-singing, all-dancing blockbuster is perfect entertainment in the run-up to Christmas.

Fancy going to see it? As a Boundless member, you can get up to 37% off cinema admission, as well as snacks and drinks, through The Cinema Society. Talk about getting a golden ticket!

2. Buy some Christmas presents

Discount shopping cards, available now, save up to 10%

The big day will be here before you know it, so you might want to start hunting for Christmas presents sooner rather than later. Why not take advantage of your Boundless membership by snapping up a discount shopping card. There are loads of great brands represented, from M&S to Morrisons, Clarks to Currys, and you’ll save up to 10% on your festive purchases. For inspiration, why not take a look at the Boundless Christmas gift guide, which is packed with brilliant offers on gadgets, homeware, fashion accessories and more.

3. Watch a hilarious stage show 

Peter Pan Goes Wrong, daily, save 10%

Peter Pan Goes Wrong

If you don’t fancy the traditional pantomime fare this year, how about a festive show with a difference? Presented by the award-winning Mischief Theatre, Peter Pan Goes Wrong follows a group of actors as they try to stage the J. M. Barrie children’s classic, only for their incompetence to turn the production into utter chaos. Brilliantly choreographed, this is a slapstick seasonal treat you don’t want to miss.   

As a Boundless member, you’ll save 10% on all theatre visits when you book your seats through Boundless Tickets. You can’t go wrong!

4. Meet Santa’s helpers

Feed the Reindeer experience for two, selected dates, get 20% off

Most of the time, reindeer are only ever seen in films and on Christmas cards. So, imagine how magical it would be to not only meet some real ones, but feed them too! Available from Virgin Experience Days, the Feed the Reindeer experience will see you and a friend or loved one visiting Somerset Reindeer Ranch, where you’ll get to hand-feed real-life reindeer and say hello to some of the other animals that live there, before finishing the day with a tasty hot chocolate. 

Normally, this special day would cost £75 for two people, but since Boundless members get 20% off a wide range of Virgin experiences and activities, you can get it for just £60. That’s food for thought.

5. Treat yourself to a winter warmer

Get Caffé Nero’s festive drinks menu

Caffe Nero winter drinks

You know it’s nearly Christmas when coffee shops introduce delicious winter drinks to their menus – and that’s exactly what’s happened at Caffé Nero. The popular chain has announced four indulgent new beverages for the festive season, including Millionaire’s Hot Chocolate, Florentine Mocha, Panettone Latte and Panettone Iced Latte, and we’re chomping at the bit to try them. 

You should be excited, too, as Boundless members get a free subscription to tastecard including Coffee Club, which will give you 25% off barista-made drinks at thousands of coffee shops – including Caffé Nero. Go on, treat yourself – you’ll deserve it after a day’s Christmas shopping.

6. Enjoy a winter break

Get £10pp off bookings at Warner Hotels

Christmas can be exhausting, what with all the family visits, food preparation and festive wrapping – so, why not treat yourself to some down time? Warner Hotels is offering various adult-only breaks across its UK resorts this winter, enabling you to enjoy luxury spa facilities, fine dining and first-class entertainment – all without lifting a finger, and all included in the price.    

What’s more, Boundless members get a £10pp discount when they book a break with Warner Hotels, meaning you can lap up these luxuries for less. 

7. Burn off some Christmas calories 

Flip Out, daily, save money through Kids Pass

If there’s any pitfall to Christmas at all, it’s that it can tempt us into a little bit more eating and drinking than usual, just at a time of year that’s not the most conducive to exercising. If you need to add a bit more movement into the next few weeks, one option is to take the kids or grandkids for a bounce around at one of Flip Out’s adventure and trampoline parks. Located across the UK, they’re super-popular with young ones wanting to let off some steam – and you might just find that you enjoy yourself too! 

Boundless members get a free 12-month membership with Kids Pass (worth £39.99), which will enable you to save up to 20% on entry to Flip Out and other attractions nationwide. Let the fun commence!

8. Connect with nature

WWT sites nationwide, daily, free entry

According to the WWT’s Wetlands and Wellbeing guide, we should ideally spend 120 minutes a week connecting with nature in order to maintain good mental health. The good news is that, no matter where you are in the UK, you’re never far away from fields, forest or wetland. Indeed, the WWT manages 10 nature reserves across the country, providing homes to a vast spectrum of wildlife, flora and fauna. 

As a Boundless member, you can get free access to any of these sites, all year round – and you can bring one additional adult and up to six children with you. So, why not get out there and banish those winter blues once and for all.
