Christmas Letterbox Gifts 2021

Send a little bit of Christmas magic through the post

We all try to be as prepared as possible at Christmas (mostly to avoid the shop filled with crowds of last-minute shoppers), but you’ve just remembered, you’ve forgotten to send someone a gift and/or a card this year! Don’t panic, even though there’s only about a week to go you still have time to order a last-minute Christmas card and letterbox gift that will be delivered straight through their letterbox!

Cake Cards are the ideal gift to wish someone a merry Christmas this year. You get to choose a wonderful Christmas card design from all of our options, or you can even create a personalised Christmas card with our photo card option. We’re sure you’ll find a Christmas card that will make your recipient merry!

Inside the card is the best kind of surprise – a Christmas gift! You can include a slice or two of delicious cake inside the card which is sure to make anyone smile like a happy little elf this year. There are lots of flavours to choose from including standard cake slices, gluten free cake slices, vegan cake slices, and there are even Christmas special cake slices too:

Spiced orange and cranberry slice - A spiced orange flavoured sponge with delicious and juicy cranberries scattered throughout. Complimented with an orange flavoured buttercream in the middle and fresh orange juice on top along with crunchy Demerara sugar and sugar stars. And it’s available as a gluten free cake slice too.

Along with a slice cake you could include some wonderful extras, perhaps a selection of Christmas sweets or even a cocktail. Here are the Christmas Cake Card extras available this year:
