Sending a parcel or letter creates the type of connection that digital communication often cannot.

84% of Brits say they would be more excited to receive a surprise parcel in the post rather than a text or message on social media. That’s why we have created #PostForAPost to encourage you to send something lovely to someone you know.

Step 1

Rather than sending a text or a message using social media, send a meaningful gift in the post to someone special in your life.

Step 2

We'll collect your parcel from your door and deliver it the very next day to that special person in your life. Book your parcel delivery using our fast and simple booking form and surprise that special someone you know.

Step 3

*Share your story on social media using #PostForAPost and encourage others to send a surprise parcel in the post rather than a text message or a message on social media.
