A letterbox gift is basically a gift that is delivered by mail and can fit through a letterbox without the need to be home to receive it or even open the door.
Letterbox gifts are the perfect solution for sending a gift to someone you can't meet in person, as a nice surprise in the post, or as a lockdown pick-me-up treat for yourself or a loved one. The concept of letterbox gifts has become really popular during the Covid-19 lockdowns when people haven't been doing any socializing, but they are also ideal for people with really busy schedules, who are rarely at home to receive bigger parcels too.
There is a certain element of joy when someone receives a beautifully-packed letterbox gift through the post, which is definitely a pick-me-up for someone you can't see face-to-face, to let them know that you are thinking of them.
As letterbox gifts can often be hand-picked or tailor-made, the possibilities are endless and you can send all sorts of presents, from food gifts to pamper hampers, for all sorts of occasions such as birthdays, anniversaries, religious celebrations, or simply just to let someone know you care.
Whether you are a busy-bee with a schedule that doesn't allow you to stay home to receive larger parcels yourself, or if you would like to send a nice present to a shielding granny, or a distant friend who is away at university or you just want to send some love through somebody's postbox, we have put together a selection of great letterbox gifts ideas from London.
