Valentine's Special


Friendinabox sends thoughtful gifts and treats in an eye-catching blue letterbox-friendly box to anywhere in the world.  The boxes are intended to be uplifting and supportive and make an alternative to flowers.  The “typewritten” letter which accompanies each box means you are not limited to a short message. 

Their boxes start at an affordable £10 to £38 that suit all occasions for men and women. These beautiful gift boxes are discounted by 10% for University staff.
