Last Minute Gifting Made Easy with Breakaway Experiences (Giveaway)

Boy the holidays really sneak up on a person! I have been having a hard time this year getting into the holiday spirit. So I am not super organized like I normally am. With family living all across Canada, it makes it tough to send last minute gifts and have them arrive in time. My dad, sis and nephew are in Ontario and my oldest daughter is in Manitoba. As much as I wish I could see them over the holidays, it just is not in the cards this year. And with Christmas being just over a week away, mailing a gift is tough.

Luckily Breakaway Experiences makes gift giving a breeze! I can easily login and find the perfect gift for each one of them in their province and area, select it and send it to them through email. All they need to do on their end is print off the confirmation and contact the event/vendor contact. Easy!
