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!

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!
