Celebrate Spring with The Letteroom

Losing steam in lockdown? THE LETTEROOM can help make your garden great again this spring.

Back in 2009, when Jackie Jackson and Sherrie Mead sat in a draughty barn in Andover and came up with the idea of The Letteroom, they could never have envisaged the weirdness of 2020.

The lovely site, full of personalised gifts and quirky things for the home, sells plenty of items that will put a spring in your step in lockdown.

From pots and planters to tricks to get the kids outside, The Letteroom has you covered during corona. Here are some of our favourites.
