Best gifts that fit through the letterbox 2023
Cutter & Squidge salted caramel brownies
Who wouldn’t want a box of squidgy chocolate brownies to arrive through their door? Available in a box of 12 or 24, we love these rich chocolate brownies with a layer of indulgent salted caramel running through the middle (bonus points for the cheery orange packaging). There’s plenty of other flavours to choose from too, including Nutella, white chocolate or millionaire’s shortbread varieties.
Cutter & Squidge (£14.99)

The joy of afternoon tea condensed to fit through your door. The perfect afternoon pick-me-up delivery, this box contains a range of mini carrot cakes, Victoria sandwich and chocolate brownie bars, plus a pack of Viennese fingers and shortbread. Teabags are included too to complete the ultimate tea break. There’s also a limited-edition festive afternoon tea letterbox too.

Borough Olives olives by post
Seriously plump, and packed full of flavour, the olives from Borough Olives are now available by post. Choose from a huge range including green, black and kalamata; whole, pitted, stuffed and flavoured; and antipasti like sun-dried tomatoes, cornichons and tapenade. Your three chosen items (450g total) will then be delivered in bags in a letterbox-friendly packet. While it may seem pricey for olives, these are really special – a great foodie gift for lovers of Mediterranean flavours.

A nice pick-me-up gift for anyone who enjoys herbal teas and healthier snacks (think fruit & nut bars and healthy flapjacks), this letterbox-friendly box contains five teas and five snack bars. All the products are free from dairy, gluten and refined sugar and are vegetarian and vegan-friendly. We especially love the Ombar ‘mylk’ chocolate bar and DragonFly calming bedtime tea.
