Birthday, wedding, last day of work – and you need a gift. But what?

The same problem comes up over and over, causing a big headache for everyone every time. You can ask the person what they would like, but that doesn't always help. "Nothing. Just bring yourself and I'll be happy," Sophie answered when asked what she wanted for her birthday. Yet you still want to get her a small gift to mark the occasion. There's nothing that Danielle and Marco want, either, apart from a small contribution to the honeymoon fund. And what are Harry's colleagues supposed to give him as a retirement gift? He'll have plenty of free time in future, but he already has pretty much everything.

The solution is obvious. Give them some R&R! For once we're not talking about a classic spa or beauty voucher. Much better is a little rest, relaxation and vacation in the form of accommodation vouchers.

Why is that so much better? Because Sophie, Harry, Danielle and Marco can all book what suits them best. It might be a chalet in the Valais mountains (with a spa), a city apartment in the heart of Locarno for a cultural event, a typical Appenzell house in eastern Switzerland, or maybe even a farm stay so Marcus can show Danielle his favorite cycling route. There are hundreds of places to choose from. All are officially certified and inspected by BnB Switzerland staff. There's more, however, and it's almost a rarity nowadays. Wherever they decide to stay, Harry, Sophie, Danielle and Marco will be welcomed personally by their host family and shown to their accommodation. BnB Switzerland doesn't do anonymous key pick-ups from a safe with a code. Our host families believe in being there in person for their guests.

Anyone seeking the unusual can take inspiration from our out-of-the-ordinary accommodation options. We have some real gems to make a stay into an experience, from a boat to a tree house, a tiny house to a grand house.

Collect and combine your way

Vouchers are available in denominations of CHF 20 and CHF 50, and you can use as many as you like. They are sent out in a transparent, unsealed envelope so that you can add your own personal greeting card. If the recipient loves a particular region or way of getting around, order a travel guide – on hiking in Switzerland, the Engadine and Southern Graubünden, or electric mountainbike routes, for example – as an extra surprise.
