Letterbox friendly gift ideas for DD needed please

DD is away for her birthday (midway through a 6 week placement ) so I'm looking for something to send her on the actual day.

She's already had her presents from us as it wasn't practical to take them with her but I want to send something fun, cheery or whatever to make her smile.

Where she's staying doesn't have anywhere for things to be left safely and she will be out on placement all day so it needs to be something that will fit through a letterbox.

Any ideas please?

It's a bit of a cliche on here now but Bloom and Wild flowers are lovely.

I was going to say bloom and wild!

First things that come to mind are letterbox flowers (eg bloom and wild), sweets (etsy) or brownies! Not super out there adventurous but could make her smile.

One of my friends got given a letterbox cheese toasty subscription once, a bit niche I know!

There’s some sites that do letter box chocolate or letter box sweets

NIO cocktails

Or how about this?

CompleteBarstool Wed 28-Oct-20 17:39:28

ooh that's an idea, thanks both.

I don't suppose they come a "vase" bag do they? (just in case there's nothing to use as a vase where she's staying)

Biscuiteers do letterbox boxes. They're extremely 3xpensive for what they are but they do taste good! (And they're beautiful)

Piglets pantry afternoon teas are nice and letterbox friendly they don't have sandwiches in so they can be posted .

Brownies would be good (if they'd last for a while as --unlike her mother- - she's quite disciplined when it comes to treats!)

A one time book subscription? They send a book/tea/face mask.

I used to send my dd chocolate bars from a letterbox size specialist

Earrings, small necklace, a bracelet, a nice ring. Some of these would even fit in a birthday card.

ThomasHardyPerennial Wed 28-Oct-20 19:02:28

Gnaw (chocolate brand) do letterbox selections, I love their chocolate.

Cookies, you can get them iced with a message.

Letterbox wine is a real thing. It comes in a flat plastic bottle in a thin box.

HomerRoberts Wed 28-Oct-20 19:42:30

Not on the High Street have a selection of letterbox gifts
