More information


With the emphasis on spending time together as a family, these boxes are designed to be an accessible way to help make memories, create adventures and have fun together.

A Year of Play activities

This box of surprises is a great gift for families with kids aged approximately 5-11.  It’s full of double-sided cards with ideas that are perfect for wet winter weekends and long summer holidays. The cards aren’t sealed in envelopes – allowing you to choose an activity relevant to the season or resources you have available. Each box does contain 12 envelopes so some cards can be sealed away for a treat, or they can be discussed and selected together and then picked at random each month.

A Year of Play: Movie Edition

Inside the second box there are 25 sealed envelopes containing a mix of animation (e.g. “Coco”, “Wallace & Gromit”, “Toy Story”) and classic motion picture films (“Babe”, “The Goonies”, “Charlotte’s Web”). Some might help you relive your childhood; others might be new to the whole family. You’ll also find three festive film ideas in green envelopes to get you in the Christmas mood when December comes around.


Want to make the gift personal?
The gift box can be personalised in six text colours, making this a perfect stocking filler or family gift that will last all year.

Just click on your choice of colour and fill in the family name and your short message.

We aim to produce gifts that are 100% recyclable, and we encourage all those enjoying opening envelopes to recycle them after they’ve completed their activities.

Our boxes are 100% recyclable, and are constructed from ‘greyboard’ which is made from a mix of recycled and waste paper. The outer wrap paper is also recyclable.

Where possible the paper we use for our card and envelopes is sourced from FSC certified suppliers.
