Gift them some well-deserved relaxation with this letterbox-sized set of Spacemasks. There are seven self-heating eye masks included in the box. They work by warming up as soon as you open the individual sachet in which they’re packaged. We’ve been using Spacemasks for several years, and we’re huge fans of how soothing they are for everything from headaches to a busy mind. Simply unwrap the masks, hook the integral loops around your ears for secure wear without any slippage and let the warming effect kick in. We love using them while listening to music, before bed and when seeking a 20-minute break from the daily grind.
Sending someone you love a surprise is a thoughtful gesture, whether that’s to mark their birthday, Christmas, an anniversary or if they’ve just got a new job or had a baby. A present also serves as a lovely way of letting a friend or family member know you are thinking them if they’re going through a difficult time.
With most of us leading busy lives, shopping online and sending an item directly to your gift recipient offers speedy simplicity. But it can be tricky to tell if they’ll be at home to receive your special delivery.
This is where letterbox gifts come in handy, should you want to send a bouquet of flowers, a self-care treat, chocolates, a cocktail kit, jewellery or stationery that will land directly on their doormat.
From sets created specifically for fitting through the letterbox to gifts that come in usefully compact packaging, we’ve rounded up the best to choose between.
