The lockdown has everyone feeling a bit down — but sending a letterbox gift to a friend is the perfect way to turn their day around. Surprising your friend with a thoughtful gift will let them know that you’re thinking about them during these difficult times. You could try passing your time in lockdown by opting to make the letterbox gift yourself or you could find a pre-made one that perfectly suits your loved one’s style. Here are some amazing letterbox gift ideas that will surely brighten your friend’s day:
Build Your Own
Every person has different personalities and interests, which is why Box Sized Hugs gives you the opportunity to build your own box to send to a friend. You could choose between sending a box with five, seven, or ten items inside. Choose the items that fit your friend’s unique personality so their letterbox gift will be practically made for them (because it will be). Whether they have a sweet tooth and love caffeine or need a little care package with self-care items galore — you have a wide selection of amazing items that will make the gift super meaningful to them. You can even insert a personalised note before sending the package their way!
Sending a Little Bit of Sunshine
Not only is there a lack of sunshine because of the dreary weather we have in the UK during these colder months, but the lockdown has seemed to also affect our personal sunshine that usually gets us through. That’s why this sunshine-themed letterbox gift idea from Fantabulosity is the perfect gift to send to your friends and family who might need a little bit of sunshine in their life. You could make your own box by choosing things that are yellow before placing the items in a package and sending it their way. This option is a little more hands-on, but it’s a great option if you feel like you’d like to pass a little time during lockdown.
Pick Me Up
This Pick Me Up Gift Box is perfect for someone who needs to get their prep back in their step during quarantine. This letterbox gift sends positive vibes their way — including two uplifting quote cards and some self-care items. The overnight face mask included in this box has the words “I Am Enough” on the packaging so your friend can practice self-affirmations that will make them see themselves how you see them: more than enough.
While this idea from Retro Housewife Goes Green is actually a self-care basket, you can totally put the items in a box to ship to a friend or family member. The wonderful thing about DIY projects is that you get to make all of the decisions! Try gathering some things that will nudge the recipient to take special care of themselves. You can never go wrong with a variety of yummy snacks and some bath products. If you know a scent that they love, a candle and some body scrub will really go a long way. The idea is that this self-care package will encourage your loved one to take some time to pamper themselves so they can feel good during lockdown.
