When you buy a BananaLab experience gift box, you’re buying a gift that guarantees happiness.
We bring a smile with every one of our experience boxes!
In fact, it’s all in our name – ‘BananaLab’ is inspired by a French term meaning ‘smile like a banana’!
No matter the reason or occasion, the only thing that matters to us is making you and your loved ones happy.
That is our purpose, our reason for being because a more generous world is a happier world. And why experiences?
Because that’s the way to create moments of happiness that will be remembered forever.
A French expression meaning ‘smile like a banana’, BananaLab was founded by Eric Amiel and Thomas Dufraisse, both of Franco-Australian origin, in 2017 as Australia’s first range of curated, experience-focused gift boxes.
Since then, this innovative, Victorian-based startup has grown to become the second biggest experience gifting platform in Australia. Born from the realization that there were few options for experience-based gifting in Australia, Amiel, and Dufraisse, as lovers of adventure, travel, sports, and the outdoors, launched BananaLab to fill a gap for those looking to gift unique and memorable moments for their loved ones in place of purposeless or unwanted, material gifts.
The concept is simple; one gift box, thousands of hand-picked activities to choose from.
