Finding a gift that is useful, personal, and appreciated isn’t a walk in the park, as some may think. You might have little time, little money, or the person you’re buying for is incredibly difficult and already has everything! It can make the whole process incredibly stressful and not enjoyable. You don’t want that, and we bet that the person you are gifting wouldn’t want that either. At Monty&Ridge, we have experienced this dilemma for ourselves and decided to create a range of letterbox hampers that are a bit unique, suitable for different budgets and focus on putting a smile on that special someone’s face by showcasing how well you know them.
Whether it be their birthday, Christmas, a wedding or just a simple thank you, we have something for any occasion and for anyone! We’ve designed a collection of gifts that give you the chance to give the person you love a taste of something they love! Discover why our Letterbox Hampers make the best gifts.
They’re different and varied.
If there’s one thing we know, it’s that when it comes to Hampers, it’s easy to find hampers online - there are countless ways to send chocolates and food hampers! But this doesn’t mean they are the only option!
At Monty&Ridge, we hate being restricted to unimaginative hampers, and so we have developed our letterbox gifts around hobbies and interests like cycling, veganism or wild swimming, rather than conforming to gifting stereotypes! We wanted to make it possible to send a personalised hamper that really shows how much thought you put into finding them something they’d love.
Chocolate and food are great, but our mission was to make hampers more varied. In our hampers, you can find items that are relevant to their interests. For example, in our running box, we include hair bobbles (for emergencies), a protein snack and energy gel, which would all be truly appreciated by a track lover.
They’re packed with great surprises and universally loved.
One of the biggest positives to gifting a Hamper is that they are full to the brim with fantastic goodies, and it feels like they just keep giving. Even when you’ve finished unwrapping and admiring your items, it often takes several days or weeks to use everything in there, so the gifting experience lasts longer. Plus, the value you get out of a Hamper is incredible as there is so much packed away inside just waiting to be discovered!
For example, take our Ultimate Hug In A Box Letterbox Gift. For only £26.95, you will receive:
- Handmade 'Soothe' Bath Salts with Lavender, Geranium and Ylang Ylang [150g]
- Two Scented Bath Bombs
- Handmade All-Natural Soy Wax Scented Candle [Vegan, Paraben and Phthalate-Free]
- 3 x Herbal Teas
- Millie Marotta Adult Colouring Card and Colouring Pencils
- Hot Chocolate Sachet [Fairtrade, Contains Milk]
- Eco Jojoba Oil Bath Soap [Vegan-Friendly, Natural Ingredients]
- Pack of Vegan Sweets
As the items in our letterbox hampers are carefully selected to fit the gift’s theme or interest, the items all work together in harmony to create a truly personalised experience. For example, with the above, you can just picture taking a relaxing bath, followed by a hot chocolate, sweets and some adult colouring as you wind down. Blissful! Our hampers are designed to create experiences like that rather than just be an off-the-shelf present.
They’re personal and designed to create an experience.
Our handmade Hampers are beautifully packaged and feature little details that are designed to go that extra mile and make the unwrapping experience feel luxurious. Our free handwritten personalised notes are a great example of how we try to make the recipient feel special by writing your own message onto our lovely stationery and displaying it as soon as they open the lid. This is extremely popular for those who are gifting loved ones that are not local to them. You have the ability to send a loving personal message alongside a thoughtful gift. Our Letterbox Gift Hampers are also designed to fit through almost all letterboxes, meaning the recipient will not receive one of those pesky - We tried to deliver, but nobody was home - notes. We know how stressful it can be trying to find the time to visit a collection centre, so we made sure that our hampers can be received even if your loved one is not at home. We can guarantee you no hassle throughout the entire process from first order to delivery!
They are more affordable and easier to gift.
We understand that many people are feeling the squeeze right now. The Covid pandemic has left some people in financial turmoil, and when combined with the rising cost of living, it can feel difficult to find a meaningful gift that works with your budget. We believe that everyone should be able to gift their loved ones, and we made sure that we offered Letterbox Hampers at a variety of price points to make sure they were accessible to all.
We’ve spent a lot of time and love building our collection, and even in the more budget range, we have made an effort to ensure it still has that wow impact. We’ve sourced the best products out there, many from small family-run companies, to ensure that the products are always well-made and ethically sourced, and when you order a Monty&Ridge gift, you also improve the lives of other small business owners - myself included!
Monty&Ridge is jam-packed with unique, quirky and meaningful hampers that are perfect for the special someone in your life! Hampers can easily be the best gift you ever get, so make sure you hit the right notes and get them a Monty&Ridge Letterbox Gift that is tailored to all their specific likes and interests. We believe you can still have a personal touch even when you can’t deliver a gift yourself!Find out more on our website today, or get in touch if you need any further assistance.
