Otter & Moose specialise in curated gift boxes for all occasions, filled with wonderful, hand made items from carefully chosen small British companies that you won’t find on the high street. We add handwritten notes to all orders and take extra special care over our beautiful packaging!

We are based in the lovely (but often overlooked) county of Bedfordshire and our mission is to source the very best handmade products from our county and the surrounding area. You’ll find our current range of “Bedfordshire Boxes” and gifts under the “Bedfordshire” tab below. If you’re not from Bedfordshire never fear! We have a range of gifts from specially selected small UK makers and we’re constantly on the look out for beautiful new products.

Our Christmas stock is arriving! We’ve started to list our Christmas gift boxes but if you see a box combination that you like but would prefer an ‘everyday’ gift box do please let us know at checkout.We love to put together new boxes and usually put together only small batches to enable us to keep our stock fresh and updated. If you can’t find a suitable box we are delighted to help. Just make your choice of items from our gift boxes or individual gifts page and email carrie@otterandmoose.co.uk with your selection.

We can work together to create your perfect box!
