Prize 3: Breakaway Experiences Gift Certificate




Breakaway Experiences is a service that offers Canadians with a shopping directory of unique packages from different companies that range from spas and restaurants to raceway and helicopter tours to gift to loved ones and friends, or to use for themselves. Their goal: To give the recipient of this service a fun and unforgettable experience they will not forget. They launched this service in 2014.

Fining experience is really easy with Breakaway Experiences. Here is how it is done:

  1. Look through the vast selection of experiences across Canada and select the one that you feel your family member or friend would love to do but hasn’t done yet…or pick something that’s on your bucket list.
  2. After you buy the experience it goes into your Breakaway Experiences account where you can email the experience to a friend (or print and put in a card) when the time is right.
  3. The person who receives the experience as a gift redeems the experience via a code in the email they received.   After this they can activate the experience and contact the experience provider to reserve the activity or exchange the experience for another (for example, they may prefer a spa day to bungee jumping).
  4. Have fun and add one more check to your bucket list!

 A $100 Breakaway Experiences gift certificate: Kayaking adventures, Niagara Winery tours, whale watching, dog sledding and couple spa experiences are only a few of the exciting experiences couples can enjoy together.

Prize Value: $100 GC

 Pedi-Perfect Electronic Nail Care System

A woman’s feet can play a starring role in the romance department this Valentine’s Day, whether it’s playing footsie, sensual massage or simply canoodling in bed.

The Amopé Pedi Perfect Electronic Nail Care System creates natural looking, shiny nails in three easy steps with three different fittings used for filing, buffing and shining both toe and finger nails:

·         File – use the blue filing head on the nail pen for your desired shape, in short time with great accuracy

·         Buff – attach the buffing head to even out ridges and imperfections and smooth the nail surface

·         Shine – use the polishing head to achieve a natural looking shine, effortlessly

·         Refills sold separately ($17.99 to $19.99)

 Prize value: $44.97 to $59.99
