I know it is no the best and recommended way but I have a client that wants to just map a network drive to his NAS box in house and work from anywhere without having to bring up a VPN. Can this be done?

The traditional way is to use a cloud service to store the data. Opening the NAS  box unprotected to the public is something you shouldn't do at all, but it would be managed by
a) using a dynamic DNS service to register the current IP address
b) forward port 445 on the router to the NAS box
c) use the DynDNS address to access the NAS.
