Letterbox gifts remain one of the more genius inventions, providing the perfect present solution when you need to send something to a friend or family in a hurry – and Christmas is no exception.
Despite being known as a cheap gift option, that doesn’t take away from the thought and effort that goes into getting them, nor the positive reaction when received. With M&S launching three new sets, the offering for Christmas 2022 just got better.
The family brand does tend to know what it’s good at: food, hosiery, lingerie – and it can add gifts and special occasions to the list too. After all, if Colin the Caterpillar can’t bring about some Yuletide joy, who can?
From classic British shortbread – it tastes better at Christmas – to Colin and Percy treats, the letterbox gifts are set to make perfect alternatives to a tin of chocolates this Christmas, and will go hand-in-hand with a festive card.
If you’re looking for easy gifts that still generate a happy face or two around the holidays, M&S and its new letterbox presents might be a good place to start.
