Have you remembered Mothers Day?

chocsThis Sunday, 14 March 2010, is Mothering Sunday here in the UK, and if you’re looking for a last minute gluten free present to send through the post, here’s a suggestion: Letter Box Chocolate.

Letter Box Chocolate will send a box of 16 gluten free Belgian chocolates in a letterbox-sized package with a personal message from you.

The chocolates are all gluten free, though they do contain nuts, milk and soya, and the varieties in the box are:

  • milk chocolate and coffee
  • dark chocolate and orange
  • white chocolate and strawberry
  • milk chocolate and praline

Look nice, don’t they?

tiffanyThe idea is that you order online: choose a design for the box, write a personal message, and the Letter Box team put the design, message and chocolates together and post it for you.

Now this seems like a good idea to me: nice and simple, a good range of box designs, the chance to personalise the message – and everyone likes chocolate. Plus: they’re gluten free, and since the box fits through the letter box, there’ll be no need to make a trip to the Post Office to collect a parcel.

The gift costs £8.99, with standard postage in the UK being an extra £1.00, but those of you who don’t live in the UK haven’t been forgotten – the postage will be more, and the delivery times longer, obviously, but you can still send chocolates… even if it isn’t Mothers Day where you live!

And, as a special offer to Free From readers, Letter Box Chocolates are offering a 20% discount:

I’ll be sending my youngest off for a week’s residential with school on Mother’s Day, so we’ll be up and out early – but chocolate might be just the thing to come back to once I’ve taken him off to the coach…
