Have you remembered Mothers Day?
This 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?
The 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…
I’ve written a book summarising what we’ve learnt over 20 years of dealing with the gluten free diet, and it might be just what you’re looking for. It packs the lessons we’ve learned into what I hope is a helpful and straightforward guidebook. It’s available on Amazon, as a paperback or for your Kindle…
