Moonpig | Letterbox Gifts taking the missed delivery out of Christmas

December 13, 2019

This is a gifted partnership

Oh, the weather outside is frightful, but the fire is so delightful… So let’s all stay indoors and order our Christmas gifts online!

Whilst there is the appeal of wandering around the shops in search of the perfect gift for a loved one’s Christmas gift. It is, quite frankly, not always possible. Even if the weather holds and you have the time to complete the task it doesn’t make it practical. Especially when your loved ones live 274 miles away from you (that’s how close my nearest relative lives!).

Not only would I need to search for the perfect gift, but I’d have to think about how to package it up and then send it. Before hoping that they are home when delivery is attempted. Its all a little complicated. Not to mention when you come from a family of December birthdays so you have double bubble worth of gifts to research, purchase and send.

But does it need to be this complicated? The simple answer is no and thanks to Moonpig letterbox gifts, it’s just got a whole lot easier.

What are letterbox gifts?

Letterbox gifts are a selection of personalised gifts, food hampers, beauty & home fragrance sets, novelty & gadget presents, gifts for stationery lovers, a party shop, and so much more. All of which are packaged up in a box that will fit through most standard-sized letterboxes.

Why Select a letterbox gift?

One of the main advantages of the letterbox gift collection is the ability to have it delivered and not worry whether the recipient is going to be present for delivery. When it comes to sending gifts and treats to loved ones whether near or far, the biggest hurdle is whether or not they will be able to accept delivery of your gift. Which if they were to miss it could mean a trip out to the local sorting office or attempting to rearrange a courier to come again on another date.

As letterbox gifts will fit through most standard-size letterboxes so you don’t need to check that they are going to be home – Eliminating the need to tell them that you are sending something over to them. So they can come home from work, college, holiday etc and open the door to a treat that has been pushed through the letterbox.

What gifts can be sent as letterbox gifts?

Moonpig has broken down which gifts can be sent as letterbox gifts, which makes the selection somewhat easier to choose from. Unless you are like me and always have a little dilemma as to which gift would the perfect one vs one that is great.

Available from both the Christmas Gifts and normal Gifts menu, the letterbox gifts tab will showcase all the different items that are currently available. From beautiful flowers, sweet treats, novelty items and even bottles of alcohol!

Take a look at the full letterbox-friendly gifts available from Moonpig.

Ordering Letterbox gifts for Christmas

With a list of loved ones who live away ordering letterbox gifts for Christmas couldn’t be simpler. Available to order via the Moonpig website or the Moonpig app (available on the App Store and Google Play). Select letterbox gifts from the gifts menu and browse the range of letterbox gifts available until you find the perfect one for your chosen recipient. When adding to your basket you’ll be asked whether you’d like this sent to you or direct to the person – you can even select the desired delivery date* (perfect for my Mam’s Christmas Eve birthday).

*90% of orders take 1 working day to be delivered

I’ve managed to sort out my loved ones Christmas gifts all whilst snuggled underneath a cosy blanket, with a Christmas film playing in the background and a few chocolates to hand. Now I wonder if anyone would notice if I sent that fudge letterbox gift to myself? It is my birthday between Christmas and New Year!

    These kind of gift ideas are so lovely, perfect for sending to friends and family that live a distance from you. Moonpig have so much to offer, you can usually find something regardless of who you’re looking for.

    That is genius! Also, I think there’s something more exciting about receiving lots of little presents rather than one big one. What a brilliant idea!

  • Rhian westbury December 14, 2019 at 11:30 am

    These are so practical to not have to worry about someone being in and then having to rearrange anything! I’ve had this with flowers etc x

  • Yeah Lifestyle December 14, 2019 at 4:38 pm

    What a fantastic idea this is! I’ve had letterbox cake delivered before but never letterbox gifts and I would love to use their services for sure

  • Jenni December 14, 2019 at 4:47 pm

    Oh these look amazing, we have family and friends all over the country and this would be perfect to send this a little something. They all look so nice!

  • Natasha Mairs December 15, 2019 at 3:44 pm

    I am, loving these letterbox gifts. Quite often people are out shopping themselves this time of year, so no need to have to have the courier come back another day

  • Becky December 15, 2019 at 8:27 pm

    This is absolutely brilliant! We have relatives in New Zealand who send us cards by Moonpig. Being about you send presents too is fab

    I love the idea of a letterbox gift, especially for sending to those friends and family who might live a bit further away. No worry about it being left somewhere or them not being in is always a bonus. I had no idea there were so many great letterbox gifts available though, I will definitely head over to Moonpig and check them out for sending a few last gifts now!

    Letterbox gifts are so handy, I have lost count of the times that I have missed a delivery

  • Rachael December 17, 2019 at 9:11 am

    These are such a great idea! I thi k I might order one for my friend who’s had a tough few months. It’ll be a lovely surprise for her!

    Letterbox gifts are such a great idea! There’s always a struggle at my house with ordering gifts online because my flatmates and I all work, we often miss parcels. Moonpig is my go-to when I’m struggling with gift ideas, and their personalised cards are great.

    We love Moonpig and often get gifts from the but never really ones for Christmas, just birthdays and anniversaries.
