That’s why we’re here. We’ve searched for a slice of the city you shouldn’t go without. After all, life is better with surprise that sparks adventure and adds a special moment to one’s day.
Around every corner lay new experiences to explore and memories to be made while embracing the wonderment and curiosity of exploring what makes the culture of your city unique. We’ve taken that essence and spirit and distilled it into a curated box providing a sampling of the craftsmanship, artistry, and experiences that weave the fabric of a city’s culture. It truly is a slice of a city.
IT’S WHAT YOU GIVE & WHAT YOU GET
Each box is designed to give you an
experience; A memory you can capture
that will last a lifetime. A new favorite
restaurant, shop, artist, or venue.
We are naturally creatures of habit, sometimes we need a little nudge to send us on our next adventure. The box is designed to do just that.
A WAY TO RELAX
The most relaxing moments are away from the everyday hustle, when you’re able to just be. We’ll show you the best parks, places to read by the water, or the cosiest of coffeeshops for more “you” time.
WHAT’S ON TAP
The biggest happenings, the must “to-dos” and experiences of your city. What’s happening next and what you absolutely cannot miss out on.
I was twenty-something and tasked with wandering the city with a camera; no rules, just shoot. It was through this experience that I was able to explore and view the city through a different lens (both figuratively and literally!). I began paying attention to the details, those created by nature and the others created by people, all intertwined, weaving the fabric that the city is today with hints of what it might be tomorrow. Taking this appreciation of the city, combined with entrepreneurial spirit within me that had been itching since my elementary school days of going door-to-door selling walnut mouse magnets, I set out to distill the very essence of Portland into a hand-curated box and Slice of a City was born.
I received this box as a gift for hitting a business milestone. What an awesome surprise! The box was beautifully crafted, curated and packaged. I loved all the unique items and learning a little about Portland. Can't wait to visit!- Kristi V. (Chico, CA)
I recently moved to Portland and this box is a dream. All the hidden gems made from local artists and hand curated; Love my city!- Angi A (Portland, OR)
