Missing The Tastes Of Home? COMPETITION To Win A British Gift Box!


What do British Expats miss the most about home? Whilst expats are generally motivated by the lure of adventure, opportunity and new lifestyles and experiences, most do come to miss those little things that we all take granted. Culture, history, sense of humour and even the weather are things Brits often cite as things they miss about home. But surprisingly, the thing that many expats miss the most is the food!

This article was written exclusively for Expat Network by British Gift Box.


Great British Gastronomy!

Living or working abroad means there is no shortage of new, and often exotic, food experiences and cultures for expats to try out. For most people though, wherever in the World they come from, the foods that they grew up with and the tastes of home will always have a special place in their hearts and memories.

Without a celebrated gastronomic tradition to cling to unlike some other nations, it is actually the everyday and familiar favourites such as Heinz Baked Beans, Cadbury’s chocolate or good old Yorkshire Tea that are the treats that British expats crave. Surprisingly, it has been found that the most craved after food for British expats is the beloved British crumpet!


Introducing the British Gift Box

British Gift Box was set up to provide thoughtful gifts for Brits to send to loved ones overseas and tasty treats for British expats who miss the tastes of home.

They have designed a collection of evocative British themed Gift Boxes containing iconic snacks, foods and souvenirs that will be sure to make any expat smile. You can send individual Gift Boxes or subscribe for regular Boxes, as a gift or for yourself. For expats whose family and friends are always complaining that it’s really hard to buy anything for them, ask them to look no further than British Gift Box for a gift solution that will make everyone happy!
