PostBoxed

The hassle-free gift delivery site that is set to change the way we buy and receive presents. We choose some gifts we'd be happy to see popping through our letterbox.

Launched in 2015, PostBoxed is the brainchild of an energetic west London couple who grew tired of Saturday mornings spent queuing at the Royal Mail delivery office, clutching “Sorry we missed you” slips, only to find that the parcel in question was as unexciting as a free pen from the gym. Their solution was to create a carefully curated selection of gifts that are small enough to fit through a letterbox – and to sell and deliver them through an elegant website.

In addition to a host of well-known brands, PostBoxed stocks quirky, individual and on-trend goodies from independent suppliers. The website’s categories include gift boxes, him, her, baby, child, stationary, accessories, etc. Each gift is sent wrapped and with a card on the day of your choice.

“Our mission is to make your life and the life of the person you are sending a gift to as easy as we can,” say founders, Liza Mirelman and Markus Polleichtner. It seems to us that their mission is complete.
