Life begins at forty, so make sure it’s a year to remember

Combining three of our popular birthday gifts in one box this is the gift that really keeps giving.

First up our Things To Do black gift box which contains 40 envelopes, 36 are sealed with surprise activities that the recipient can do alone, with friends, or with family. We’ve included a real mix of activities, some that can be done at home and others that involve a night out or a day trip. The last 4 are blank to add your own ideas or for more personal activities.

Each envelope will inspire the recipient to try something new, go to a place they’ve never visited before, and to make a whole bunch of new memories.

The activity box comes inside a larger memory box, this large gift box is to hold souvenirs from a whole year of 40th birthday adventures. Both boxes will be printed in the same colour with the name of the recipient on the Things To Do box. Finally in the bundle is the Making Memories Journal, stick the cards and any photos, tickets or receipts to the pages, write notes and look back over the memories.

Envelope colours are chosen at random, so may differ from the photos, and the box also includes a leaflet explaining how to make the most of the present.

How to make the gift personal

You can choose your text colour and the recipient’s name or short message to added. The colour will be used on both the birthday box and the memory box, but the name/message will only be added to the birthday box.

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.
