This box is suitable for anyone with a love of travel, a sense of adventure, and a desire to simply play and have fun.

Lovers of art, history and culture will especially enjoy the deeply detailed virtual tours that come as part of the digital library with every box.

There is no specific age limit to the boxes either: our guests have ranged from their early twenties right up to their seventies.

The boxes are really popular as gifts (especially the three month subscriptions), as well as creative date nights and self-care treats. For those of us who love and miss travel, they're a great way to unwind and help us design our future adventures, too.

Felt like home to my Portuguese bf

Absolutely amazing experience. Everything was so thoroughly thought through - there were two recipes (both deliciously tasty!), a virtual walking tour of both Porto and Lisboa, themed music, a pub quiz, some Portuguese phrases and even a soap and a miniature bottle of Port. My partner is from Portugal and he kept saying how fantastic and authentic everything was. It was great to be able to share all the details of his country with him whilst we can't leave the UK. The playlist in particular was a really inspired idea - it's something we hadn't thought to share before, and brought up a lot of fond memories for him.

The attention to detail is incredible. When I first opened the box and showed him the printed recipe cards and so on that were decorated with the Portuguese blue and white tile patterns, he took one look and said it felt like home.

We kept a weekend free for our "holiday" and I added in some extra activities, like a Portuguese movie we'd been wanting to see, and a Portuguese-tile-themed board game (Azul, if you're interested), but there was so much to do and experience in the box that we actually ran over and didn't finish all the activities!

Really enjoyable and a unique experience. Thoroughly recommended!

Dear Verity,

Thank you so much for your wonderful feedback! I'm so thrilled to hear that you and your boyfriend both enjoyed your holiday from home so much, especially as he was able to cast an expert eye over it!

It sounds like great fun the way you made the adventure your own, and I'm so happy to have been part of creating a lovely experience for you both, especially reminiscing about old memories together and discovering new aspects of one another.

I hope you both have many adventures to come.

All the best,

Laura from The Holiday in a Box Co.
