Our Philosophy & Goals

You won’t know what you’ll miss until you decide to leave home

For generations we have been roaming the world to experience exiting and new cultures. At the same time we carry over our own traditions and memories from where we grew up or spent a significant time of our life. This connection is what we want to foster and embrace with our culturally predicated products and services.


Trust in yourself – we want to foster your strength to discover the unknown.


Feel the joy of wandering – and from time to time some of the good stuff from where you grew up.


Feel save while travelling – all of our products and services provide the quality you’re used to.


Stay connected – we will bring you the little things that remind you of home.


Enjoy leaving – because you can be sure we will bring home to wherever you are.

“Home is not only a place, but it´s also a feeling
that we will spark for you”

Your HomesickBox team

Verena Weinzierl

Founder & CEO

As an expat in China, I know about the daily hardships and particular wishes for homelike food or beauty supplies which I´m used to. I love to travel and the amazing experiences coming with it – but sometimes there’s still this little feeling of homesickness sneaking in…
We founded “HomesickBox” to help other expats and of course their families to prevent homesickness with a little piece of home and to cheer them up during their time abroad. We hope our idea will also bring joy to your house, create some nostalgic moments to share and to even foster a ‘from expats for expats’ community and spirit. We are deeply grateful for all the support we already received and looking forward to sharing this new adventure with you!
