The concept of experience gift boxes originates from Europe and has been successful for the last decade, so what are they? It’s an invitation to enjoy a fully pre-paid experience of their choice.

Recipients will receive an eco-friendly gift box containing a booklet and an invitation. The book showcases the best experiences carefully hand-picked by the BananaLab team and all matching the value of the gift box. The invitation is a pass to access anyone experience of their choice.

Experiences are classified into four categories: Adventure, Restaurants & Hotel stays, Wellness, and Arts & Crafts. Priced between $70 to $600 it also suits every budget. The best part – recipients will never find a price on their gift boxes - why? The experience they’ll choose is already prepaid.

The best gifts are about the experience, not the price tag!
