Otter & Moose specialise in curated gift boxes for all occasions, filled with wonderful, hand made items from carefully chosen small 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 makers and we’re constantly on the look out for beautiful new products.

We’re always really happy to include a personalised note for you with your gift. Please leave us a note at checkout and we’ll do the rest!

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!
