Please note that we are extremely busy at the moment! We aim to post out parcels within 3 days of orders being placed but please do let us know if you need items urgently and we will prioritise packaging those items. Please also note that post to some addresses seems to be taking a lot longer than usual!

To celebrate Black Friday and to give you a treat please add the ‘Black Friday Free Gift’ to your basket and apply the code SHOPSMALL at checkout. You will then receive your free chocolate gift with any orders placed until midnight on Saturday 28th November 2020. (Not to be used in conjunction with any other code).

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.

We’re constantly updating 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.

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!
