The Holiday in a Box Co.

Got constant wanderlust? This is the next best thing to hopping on a plane with a suitcase in tow. From city breaks to family adventures, The Holiday Box Co. whisks you away to a chosen destination with sweet treats, recipes and virtual tours.

Jetting around the world may be off the agenda for the time being, but luckily we have just the thing to tame that travel craving – and give you some vital inspo for your holidays in 2021.

The Holiday in a Box Co. curates stylish boxes inspired by destinations around the world, from Istanbul to Bangkok, and sends them to you on a one-off basis or as a subscription (which – hint hint – makes a great gift for travel lovers). Boxes are filled with everything from local teas and coffees, sweets and biscuits and oils and alcohols to candles and soaps, recipes and activity cards. Each box also comes with a guide to your chosen destination, a virtual city tour and playlists and reading recommendations to fully immerse you.

As well as city boxes, there are also experience boxes, including the new Spa Retreat box that’s packed to the brim with self-care goodies (think candles, bath salts and and herbal teas), and Family Boxes. The Iceland Family Adventure Box is designed to engage littlies aged 6-10, and includes an A3 fold-out map, a Viking longship crafting kit and themed activity cards.

If you could use a little escapism right now (and, let’s face it, who doesn’t?), then these boxes are the perfect way to get your fix through the post – or to gift a virtual trip to a loved one. No passport required.
