The Ultimate Gift to Explore Melbourne

Ahhh, Melbourne… one of the world’s most liveable cities and the arts, sports, and cultural capital of Australia. It’s true that we haven’t been able to discover much of our beautiful city lately, due to events that we’re sure won’t need explaining. However, as we look to the world reopening, it’s time to think about getting back out there. The best way to do so? With BananaLab, of course! Encourage your friends and family to rediscover all that Melbourne has to offer with one of our premium experience boxes. With hundreds of cool experiences available, it’s the ultimate gift to explore Melbourne again!

But what makes BananaLab such a great gift?

First of all, BananaLab makes gifting simple by letting the recipient choose their own experience! Say goodbye to disingenuous thanks, disappointed faces, or the need for gift receipts, returns, or exchanges. Instead, the recipient of your unique experience gift will have access to hundreds of wonderful experiences and can select one for themselves that they’ll really love.  In addition, we have all kinds of experiences available in our experience booklets. From wine tours and cooking classes, to massages and float sessions, and skydiving and hot air balloon rides - the ultimate gifts to explore Melbourne are all in there! That means that no matter their interests or preferences, BananaLab is a gift that will suit anyone.

Not only is BananaLab an easy gift, it also makes gifting easy for you!

Firstly, every BananaLab gift box comes beautifully packaged, so no wrapping paper needed! It also means that when you choose BananaLab, you’re giving both a tangible present, as well as an experience gift. As an added plus, our boxes are made with eco-friendly materials, so you can be sure that you’re being kind to the earth. Any BananaLab gift box can also be given a personalised touch by adding a greeting card or video message. Furthermore, there are no price tags attached on our gift boxes - so keep your sharpies away! Moreover, our experience gift boxes are available at a range of price points. So whatever your budget, whoever you're shopping for, and for whatever occasion, there’s a BananaLab experience box that'll be perfect! However, the quality of the experiences does not change, whether you’re choosing a mid-range box or our most premium option. Your giftee’s BananaLab experience gift box will still be the ultimate gift to explore Melbourne with! It’s also great news for any of you who are last-minute shoppers. BananaLab is available Australia-wide, both online and in the gift card section in Coles and Woolworths across the nation! So, though we may only be focusing on Melbourne now, it’s a great gift to consider for when state lines re-open again.

So how does experience gifting with BananaLab work?

The concept is simple - you gift with BananaLab and the recipient receives a beautiful box with a booklet filled with exciting experiences and a pass for them to redeem any one experience. All experiences in the box are priced at the same value, meaning that they’ll never have to pay anything extra! The experiences in the booklet are just a snapshot of what’s on offer. Make sure to encourage your recipient to visit our website, as we’re always partnering with new experience operators and adding more experiences to our selection.
