Letterbox Gifts

Send something sweet through the post

One of the most frustrating things is receiving a “Sorry we missed you” slip when you were waiting for a parcel to arrive. Even worse when you’ve tried to do a nice thing and the recipient misses a delivery of a gift you’ve sent them. Not only is it frustrating for them, because they have to rearrange the delivery or go to a depot to collect the gift, but it’s also frustrating for you as it spoils the surprise.

There is a simple solution to the problem; letterbox gifts. Letterbox gifts have proven to be a great solution to many problems, especially in the last few years. They are especially ideal when you aren’t able to see someone in person.

The beauty of letterbox gifts is that you can keep them as a surprise. Unlike gifts that are sent via courier, you don’t need to become an amateur sleuth to find out when the recipient will be out of the house, or in the house to plan the delivery. The gifts are simply pushed through the letterbox; so even if they are out and about on the day that the gift is due to arrive, it’ll be waiting for them when they get home. That will take a lot of stress out for you, as you won’t have to worry about spoiling the surprise or them missing the delivery.

Luckily for many of us, the world of letterbox gifts has expanded a lot since their inception, and this gives us more opportunities to discover the perfect gift for your loved one. Whatever the occasion, there’s a letterbox gift for everyone. The best letterbox gifts are ones that truly show how much you care; of course, you’ll want to make sure you send them something they will appreciate but we’re sure they’ll smile no matter what they receive.

One thing that almost everyone loves, no matter what the occasion, is cake. So, it won’t surprise you to know that Sponge has their own letterbox gifts. As a cake company, it just made sense to us to create an extension of a traditional card and cake combination, so that you can send a couple of slices of cake inside the card.

Cake Cards are a unique gift that you can send through the post to brighten up someone's day for any occasion. They consist of a card and a choice of one or two slices of yummy cake or treats, all packaged together in a specially designed card box. Our letterbox cake cards have been specifically designed this way to fit through a standard-size letterbox, allowing us to send these unique gift cakes by post!

There are lots of personalisation options too, with extra items and unique cards to create the perfect gift. You can even add your own message. Send a gift card with a little something extra!

Our Cake Cards are packaged in specially designed boxes with your chosen card design on the front, a personalised message on the inside, and your cake slices/treats secured inside. They are designed to be robust to keep the contents safe but also slim enough to fit through any standard letterbox.

The great thing about the Cake Cards is the surprise. As it doesn't require a signature, your postman can simply slip it through the letterbox with the rest of your post and the recipient doesn’t have to be in for the delivery. What a fantastic surprise for them, as they will have no idea you have sent them a special personalised card with cake inside by post!

There are lots of personalisation options too, with extra items to create the perfect gift. You can also add a special message inside the Cake Card so that it's 100% personal to the recipient.

You’ll have access to our range of fabulous card designs, there are so many occasions that our cards cover, you’ll be spoilt for choice. Or if you happen to not find what you’re looking for, why not create your own card design with our photo card option?

Ordering a Letterbox Cake Card is really easy. Simply choose the card design that you like. Then select either one or two Letterbox cake slice size flavours, add your personalised message and other items like some party essentials; balloons, and candles, and then head to the checkout.

We create, pack and post our letterbox cakes all over the UK, bringing a smile to all recipients' faces. So, what are you waiting for? Try our cake cards by post service today, and send a personalised letterbox cake gift to a friend, family member, or loved one.
