SPHERE Curates: Amazing Experiences to Gift Loved Ones

Words by

31st October 2022

Gifting a memorable experience lasts well after the tinsel has been taken down, the presents unwrapped, and the last mince pie consumed. We bring you the best, from a private Champagne theatre suite to bespoke luggage or an art members club offering VIP out of hours curator tours. Oh, and if you want to go all out, gift a stay at the largest overwater standalone villa in the world. 

Gift a Möet & Chandon Drenched Wild Night Out at Cabaret
