This box contains surprises sure to delight whoever is lucky enough to receive it. The gender-neutral box contains 50 coloured envelopes, and each one holds a surprise activity. We’ll include 45 pre-printed activity cards, and five blank cards for you to fill in with ideas you know will mean the world to them.
Each envelope will inspire the recipient to try something new, or go to a place they’ve never visited before. Either way, they’re well on their way to making a whole lot of new memories. The ideas are a mix of things they can do at home, and activities that involve a night out or a day trip. They can do them with friends or family, or by themselves – the choice is theirs.
Envelope colours are chosen at random, so each box is unique, and also includes a leaflet explaining how to use the box.
How to make this “not quite 50” birthday present personal
We have two options: an off-the-shelf black gift box with stylish turquoise metallic foil text, and a personalised version where you can choose your text colour and have the recipient’s name added. Just click on the drop-down menu to make your choice and fill in your message.
Curiosity getting the better of you?
If you want a sneaky look at a few of the dates included, click on the SNEAK PEEK button below. We know some of you want a complete surprise, so please don’t click on it if you don’t want any spoilers.
Here’s a sample of the activities included:
- “Give yourself the day off. Do nothing. Go for a walk, go out for lunch – anything, as long as it’s different from your normal routine.”
- “Host a dinner party. Invite your friends over, but make sure they return the favour!”
- “Go to a karaoke bar. Sing your heart out to your favourite song. Not a singer? Get someone to serenade you!”
- “Movie night. Watch your favourite childhood film.”
- “Play golf. Go to the driving range, or for a full 18 holes… of crazy golf!”
- “Make a photo album. Spend time looking through photos; find some to frame, make an album online or print them out.”
- Plus many more!
