Letterbox Gifts ‘The Signature Collection’ Review by Mel – July 2018

I am a sucker for a pretty box, and this is one I have been following on Instagram for some time. They always have beautiful photos, colour scheme matching packaging that just draws your eye in, and of course lovely looking products, especially the edible ones!

So when Michelle from Letterbox Gifts asked me to review, of course I jumped at the chance to review this box.

This box arrived as if by magic, no seriously the delivery was so quick I was taken aback. If you missed my live unboxing, you can now watch it back on our YouTube Channel here:

So whats in the Box?

  • Prosecco & White Chocolate Truffles
  • Lavender & Bergamot Skin Balm
  • White Peony Loose Leaf Tea
  • Lavender & Bergamot Lip Balm
  • Wild Fig Tealights

Letterbox Gift Subscriptions

  • Three Month Letterbox Gift Subscription For Her – £89.95
  • The Birthday Subscription – £79.95
  • The Mum To Be Subscription – £79.95
  • The New Mum & New Baby Subscription – £79.95

With the above gift subscriptions, you can choose which of their boxes you want each month for the ladies one, which is amazing as there are quite a few to choose from. They range from pamper and skincare, to Tea and Chocolate. They even have Bridesmaids, Mens, New Mum, New Home… a really fantastic selection.

The best thing about this box in my opinion, is that it has FREE next day delivery when you order by 2pm. How many times have you almost forgot someones birthday? I have, but with this if you remember the day before, not only will it arrive in time but they include a personalised card, and they don’t need to be in as it fits through the post box!!

What did I think?

Prosecco & White Chocolate Truffles

These didn’t last long. I took the entire box with me to our weekend trip to Chester. These got eaten the night we arrived and to be honest we could have eaten another box. Well they were shared between me, my partner and our 3 year old. We all loved them!

Lavender & Bergamot Skin Balm

I am a huge fan of skin balms. Their uses are endless! Knowing I was going away and would be heading out in this glorious weather I got out my eplilator to make my legs ‘dress ready’. After eplilating I used this on my legs before bed. It was really easy to scoop out, which I sometimes have issues with as I have long nails, and it starts to melt as you apply it. My legs felt amazing the next morning! I also use skin balms frequently as an overnight intensive face mask, they are brilliant for this. Other uses could be feet, dry hands, elbows, even my children could use this. It also smells absolutely divine. The Lavender and Bergamot work beautifully together.

White Peony Loose Leaf Tea

I am admittedly a bit of a snob when it comes to Tea and Coffee. I love it to be an experience rather than a convenience, and this certainly is that. It is a light, fragrant tea, perfect for mornings in this summer heat. I bet it would also make a really good iced tea too. I love that the tin is reusable, and again it just feels a bit special.

Lavender & Bergamot Lip Balm

Well you all know by now how much I love a lip balm?! This has the same fragrance as the skin balm which is divine. This is the only item I haven’t used yet, admittedly as I have at least 7 lip balms open, and stored in various places so that I always have one to hand! It will get used though, without a doubt.

Wild Fig Tealights

I honestly did not expect these to smell like this. They are a really fresh floral smell, almost like a crisp linen smell. The glass holders make them feel ver luxurious. I used these in my bedroom, but I could also imagine these making a lovely relaxing bathtime addition.

My Verdict?

This box is clearly more about a personalised gift or treat, rather than a subscription. The fact that every single detail down to the colour coordinated packaging tells me that these boxes have been perfected to ensure that they are both luxurious, and in their own class of boxes.

I would not hesitate to order one as a gift for someone, I hope to see more boxes added to the selection too as they continue to grow. It is a unique concept, I haven’t seen another company like this. The products are high quality so you could give these as a gift knowing that the recipient will be made up. Did I mention my Birthday is October?!
