Buying a gift for someone that needs to be delivered can be a treacherous task. If you’re far away from each other, it can be tricky to know if they’ll be in when your package arrives. Depending on where your loved one is in the world, this could delay their gift by days or even weeks!
In this post, I’ve handpicked some of the best letterbox gifts in 2020. I’ll cover a range of demographics and genres. One thing ties all these gifts together: they all fit through the letterbox.
1. Bloom and Wild
Bloom and Wild deliver absolutely beautiful flowers that are intelligently packed to fit through the letterbox. One of the great things about this gift is that the flowers come pre-bloomed, meaning they’ll flower slowly a few days after they’ve arrived. This means the recipient of your flowers will have them for at least a couple of weeks. I’ve sent these flowers to people before and had them last up to a month! Bouquets range from £25 – £35.
2. Letterbox Wine®
This one’s a little whacky but it’s also fantastic. Letterbox Wine® is exactly what it sounds like; the bottles are a slightly peculiar, flat shape to allow them to be posted straight through the letterbox. Don’t worry though, the packaging keeps it nice and safe as it lands. White, red and christmas varieties are available.
3. Classic Book and a Hot Drink
This letterbox gift comes from a company called Bookishly. You choose from a selection of classic books, teas, coffees and hot chocolates to find a bundle that works for you. This list of available books is longer than you might think. Moby Dick, Sherlock Holmes, Frankenstein are just the tip of the iceberg. At just £15, this is one of the cheapest letterbox gifts on this list.
4. Coffee Explorers Letterbox Gift Set
For the coffee lover in your life this letterbox gift from Novello is a fantastic option. Your giftee will receive a taster pack of a variety of different coffees. Standard and christmas-themed packaging is available.
5. Curry Discovery Kit
This is a subscription gift that sends your loved one the spices and recipes they’ll need to recreate the flavours of their favourite Indian restaurant at home. Luckily, orders can be tweaked to fit certain dietary requirements. The contents of every delivery are handmade, use recyclable packaging and use no added sugars or sweeteners. If you know someone who’s fanatical about curry, this is a great option.
If my suggestions here didn’t quite work for you, you might have more luck using a dedicated platform. I tend to use either NotOnTheHighStreet and LetterboxGifts. In my opinion, they most consistently have some of the best letterbox gifts you can find. If you want to know my absolute favourite, Bloom and wild at the top of the list wins for me hands down.
