This year, things are a little different. And we thought, “How can we bring a vacation to you?” So, to shake up your normal routine, we created the Staycation Box!

Just in time for the holidays, this comfy, cozy box is packed full of amazing Manitoba made products and a themed travel itinerary creating hours of engaging fun.

As you open the box you are walked through every aspect from local music to setting the mood, tasting delicious beverages, learning to cook local delicacies, virtual tours and tips on how to make the experience exceptional.

Our mission is to create a memorable “travel” experience in the comfort of your home while incorporating local Manitoba made products. One of our focal points is supporting local businesses and with so many wonderful products made here in Manitoba, it’s easier than ever to buy local. We want to showcase these unique and delicious items, as well as inspire you to explore countries from around the world.

We currently have two products. Our standard size box comes with a 48- hour itinerary of recipes, activities and 6-7 made-in-Manitoba goods, so that you can use the products to create two full days of restful, engaging fun. Then our mini-boxes were created for those who simply have an evening to serene escape. Each box includes 5 made in Manitoba products and a 4-6hr travel itinerary designed to create memories and fun experiences.

We at McPhail Travel Brandon have poured our heart and soul into creating the Staycation Box and honestly, it couldn’t have been done without the amazing companies we have partnered with. We hand-picked each and every one of our gift boxes with a selection of local artisan products from across Manitoba. To give you an idea of what to expect, in our fabulous Paris box we have scrumptious macarons from Jenna Rae Cakes. In our Hawaii box, you can enjoy a cocktail on Its Charlow Darling while preparing a fun Luau dinner. And in our Active & Adventure box, grab your GORP energy bar as you head out on a hike.

Are you a family looking for something to do this weekend? A company seeking to treat their employees? A couple longing for a date night? Or a busy individual needing a quick gift? You value aesthetics and convenience and are excited to have a fun experience from the comfort of your home. No more rushing around, pulling things together at the last minute. Let us do the work for you.
