I’ve recently come across a brand called Letterbox Gifts and frankly, it’s a superb concept!
Want to send a friend or loved one a beautiful, thoughtful gift but aren’t sure what to get? Want to send them something but don’t want them to miss the delivery then have to treck into town to collect the parcel when they get that annoying red Royal Mail card through the door?
If you answered ‘yes’ to both those questions then read on!
In a nutshell, Letterbox Gifts contain a beautiful selection of carefully sourced products from independent British producers. They find fabulous, original and quality gifts from ethical companies who really care about the products they make and how they make them.
Each Letterbox Gift is hand wrapped in tissue and natural wood wool, then arranged in a stylish and bespoke designed gift boxes to ensure they arrive through the letterbox looking on top form and all gift sets contain a gorgeous greetings card designed by Sarah Burns that you can personalise.
Sounds cool huh? Well take a look at the simply exquisite Mother’s Day Box they created this year.
Packed into this super slim, compact box was an array of gorgeous items.
Choc On Choc Mother’s Day Chocolate
Nine gorgeous, handmade white Belgian chocolate squares from the unique and creative brand Choc on Choc.
Bee Good Honey and Crambe Hand Cream
A lightly scented, gorgeously rich yet light hand cream. Active ingredients include moisturising British wild flower honey, British propolis renowned for its antibacterial properties, skin-softening panthenol (pro-vitamin B5), antioxidant vitamin E and nourishing British crambe oil. British borage oil and camelina oil provide rich sources of essential fatty acids to strengthen and protect the skin.
Nathalie Bond Organics Geranium and Patchouli Soap
A beautifully scented, handmade soap that combines the light and floral scents of rose geranium with earthy patchouli. The Rose Geranium + Patchouli Wash Block is both sweet smelling and bursting with benefits for your skin, plus it’s vegan friendly, handmade in small batches and packed with natural ingredients.
The Natural Candle Company Vintage Blossom Soy Candle
A hand poured soy candle made, beautifully presented in a cute little tin made with 100% essential oils to create a delicate and sophisticated floral scent.
Bellevue Earl Grey Tea
This classic Earl Grey tea has a wonderfully aromatic quality that has been hand-picked on highland estates in Sri Lanka, then flavoured with bergamot oil, extracted from the fragrant bergamot orange. It can be served black or taken with milk and is renowned for its uplifting aroma.
For Mother’s Day I have to say this box ticked all the boxes for me. My Mum loves chocolate, candles, tea and lovely pampering smellies so I couldn’t have asked for more in a gift for her, plus, all this cost just £22.95. I know, amazing right?
Well, it seems that I wasn’t alone in thinking this box was brilliant as it sold out extremely quickly!
So popular was this box that the guys over at the Letterbox Gift Shop have decided to make it a permanent box.
It will feature the same products but obviously with the ‘mum’ chocolates being replaced champagne truffles.
This new gift set will be called The Sophia Box, it will cost £25.99 plus p&p and to be honest, I expect it to sell out regularly too!
The new Sophia box will be available to buy later this month but in the meantime you can take a look at their other gorgeous boxes over on their website now.
