Letterbox gifts have grown in popularity over the last few years, it started with letterbox flowers and has now expanded so much that you can order a present that fits for your letterbox containing pretty much anything. There's gin boxes, spa boxes, tea boxes... charcuterie boxes?
They make for perfect presents all year round, and are the ideal little pick me up, maybe to send to someone you can't see in person right now. We have rounded up our favourites to provide some shopping inspiration, and for more gift guides to help out with your Christmas lists, head over to our hub page. Also lots of these letterbox gifts come from small businesses, which we think you should all be throwing your money at (if you can obviously) right now!
Best letterbox gifts
If you have a beauty lover on your Christmas list, or just want to send someone a care package they can enjoy on a Friday night, this is a lovely option. It's all organic, eco-friendly and handmade in the UK. You get a lotion bar, soap, mineral bath infusions, two tea tealights and two bath melts. You can pick the scent too – choose between jasmine, sweet clementine or rose Maroc, all of which sound pretty dreamy to us.
There is a vegan version available too.
If you are after the perfect Birthday present to send someone during lockdown, this letterbox gift has it all. There's flowers, wine and chocolate and all of that can get through the letterbox. You can choose gifts for other occasions too, but with the Birthday one you get a rose plant (yes a proper plant that they can keep for as long as they can keep it alive for), a bottle of rose wine and a cute bar of chocolate.
It's a quirky one sure, but we love this letterbox gift, and any meat fanatic will tell you that British Charcuterie is becoming a bit of thing. With this box you get to sample loads too – there's Hartgrove Coppa, Dorset Aberdeen Angus Bresaola, Pink Peppercorn & Purbeck Cider Salami, Wild Venison Chorizo amd Wild Venison Salami with Smoked Sloe and Garlic. What a feast!
The perfect letterbox gift for a cheese lover, this box has everything you need to make a little cheeseboard. You get cheese, biscuits and chutney all paired by the pros. Also the packaging is so adorable and makes it really special, is all hand wrapped, using beautiful, traditional packaging, parcel paper, twine and ink stamps. Ideal for Christmas too.
Silk flowers are the perfect gift, because unlike real flowers they are going to last way longer than a week. This lovely bouquet looks really authentic too, no one would know they weren't real. We love the colours in this arrangement, the deep red, dusky pinks and dark green folliage are perfect for this time of year but you can choose from lots of different blooms depending on your style. Each bouquet is carefully packaged by hand and can obviously fit neatly into a letterbox.
