Gifts that can fit through a letterbox!

Posted by on

There are plenty of weird and wonderful things you can fit through a letterbox. Some are welcome and others not so much.

Take, for example, the postman who decided to fold an envelope so that he could get it into a London letterbox. Full marks for ingenuity but go to the back of the class for ignoring the fragile stickers on it. The envelope contained a vinyl record sent as a gift and you can imagine the state it was in by the time it was opened. Vinyl records generally don’t make great letterbox gifts.

And then there is chocolate…..

For milk chocolate lovers, The Milk Letterbox Collection is handmade specifically so that the set of 3 bars of organic chocolate from the Dominican Republic will fit perfectly through the letterbox. Delivered with a bespoke card in a box that states “Hello, I'm yours” people of all ages will appreciate these milk chocolate bars available in 3 flavours.

Flat bottled wine

Flat long bottles of wine are some wonderful things you can fit through a letterbox. Gone are the days of sitting behind the door, funnel in mouth, as the postman poured it in through a tube! Garcon Wines deliver 750ml bottles of red or white and there’s no failed delivery card left on the door mat. The perfectly shaped bottles can be posted through standard size letterboxes. Since the bottles are made from plastic, there is no chance of them smashing. Seeing the tall narrow bottles on a dinner table is an acquired taste, but the wine is delicious.

And then there’s more chocolate…….

Connoisseurs of dark chocolate won’t fail to be impressed by the Limited Edition Gin & Tonic Box containing 2 bars of G&T flavoured Ecuadorean chocolate and 1 of Sea Salt. Great combinations of flavours, to accompany ice cool Gin & Tonics, at any time of the year.

Christmas tree

Believe it or not, John Lewis actually supplies a Christmas tree that can be posted through a letterbox. As you can imagine it’s very tiny. More likely to be used as a dinner table centrepiece or in a child’s dolls house, you can take a closer look at it by clicking on letterbox Christmas Tree. Arriving with all its lights and decorations it’s ideal for minimalists!

Unlikely things you’ll receive through a letterbox

Royal mail parcels - when the postman arrived, you were in but he ran away before you could answer. An appeal for £3 a month to save last year’s X Factor winner from starving - it’s unlikely you’ll receive these things. Check out the Mock the Week video below for more unlikely things to get through your letterbox https://youtu.be/F7e8h9lryOc

 

And then there’s the letterbox gift that keeps on giving….

Disappointed with the delivery

I bought the chocolate bars as a gift as I had bought some at an earlier time, although I like the idea of it. It was disappointing for my friend to not have received the next day. If I was guaranteed next day delivery I would order again.

Thanks for your feedback Yvonne, is really useful. We try and keep our product as affordable as possible offering 1st Class Royal Mail for free (over £15). Since we emailed we have now added a next day guaranteed delivery option and charge cost price for this service.
Subscription v Retail

James something to be aware of: I can buy three bars for £12 in my local wine shop ( Therapy of Wine )
Same thing only costs me 1p less through my subscription.....

Thanks for your feedback Robert. Unfortunately at the moment we have to charge postage on the subscriptions under 15 pounds. We will try and create more subscription options which will avoid this postage charge.
80th Birthday Gift for a Quaker

The gift was very well received and the whole family enjoyed the experience of 'cadbury' chocolate. Beautifully packaged and delivered with no fuss.

Thanks for lovely review Lea, glad the chocolate bars were well received gift :)
Sea salt 70% Dark Chocolate Bar

Found it to be a crisp & tastey bar. Tends to bring out the cocoa. Never tried this taste before but would purchase again.

Glad you liked this John. The Sea Salt is our favourite bar and is up for an award :)
Chocolate Heaven

The chocolate is absolutely amazing. I think when you read the ingredients list and learn about the refined sugar-free element you possibly prepare your mind for an inferior but healthier alternative. This blew my expectations out the water. This is hands down most of the most elite, superior and exquisite chocolates I have ever tasted. So pure, so creamy and the flavours options are insane. I also sampled to 70% Ecuadorian which was unbelievably creamy and like nothing I have ever tasted. I will definitely be back for more. Please, Please, Please enter this for some of the industry awards. This should definitely be celebrated!

Thanks very much for the review Ryan, glad you liked the chocolate!
