Novelty socks, bubble bath and handmade scarves – we’ve all had to plaster a grateful smile on our face when we’ve unwrapped a gift that doesn’t quite hit the spot. And everyone deserves one epic Christmas present. So why not make life easy for you and those you love and give the gift of mud, teamwork, personal achievement and a damn good time? Here are our top five reasons why Tough Mudder is the best Christmas present…ever.
Why You Should Give The Gift of Tough Mudder
1. Goodbye Wrapping
Christmas might be the season of giving but after this year, there’s no harm in looking after number one (that’s you by the way). Give someone the gift of Tough Mudder this year and the most you’ll need to do is write a card – if you even want to do that. Forget wrinkled wrapping paper ripping right at the wrong spot and sticky tape stuck to absolutely everything in sight. This year treat yourself to no wrapping and instead perhaps indulge in a little Christmas tipple? We know what we’d choose.
2. Give the Gift of…YOU
Not only is a Tough Mudder ticket an invitation to an unforgettable day where the lucky recipient will get outside of their comfort zone and make themselves feel proud, it’s also a reunion. What better way to get the whole team back together, after almost a full year of socially-distanced walks and video calls, than getting seriously hands on to tackle teamwork-demanding obstacles? There is none.
3. Ahead of the Game
You see them every year, in the middle of a jam-packed shopping centre. They’re pale and sweaty and they have fear in their eyes. It’s Christmas eve and this poor soul hasn’t finished their shopping yet *insert blood curdling scream*. This could be you. Or you could be at home snuggled up on the sofa, smugly eyeing the piles of glittering gifts beneath the tree. Book your Tough Mudder tickets today and…you’re done. No last minute panic and definitely no “sorry it got lost in the post”.
4. A Family Affair
So there’s mum, dad, your two sisters and half brother (and they all have partners). Then don’t forget Auntie Shabnam and Uncle Dereck and their two kids. You should probably get your two best mates something, and don’t forget your significant other – they’ll be expecting something special this year. Feeling panicked? Don’t. This is your team and you need Tough Mudder tickets for everyone. With events ranging from 5K , 10K and 15K and Lidl Mudder too, there’s no reason you can’t get everyone involved. Plus, you’ll be arranging the next family get together – that will earn you some brownie points.
5. An Epic Gift
There’s lots of ways that giving the gift of mud makes your life easier. But perhaps you just really want to treat the people that you love the most this year. Maybe they overcame some obstacles of their own in 2021, or maybe you just think they deserve to kick back and have some real fun. Either way, imagine their face when you tell them you’re taking them to Tough Mudder and then compare it to the face they give when they open that really nice jumper you got them…No comparison.
