We love designing gift boxes to make your heart flutter! Otter and Moose specialise in curated gift boxes for all occasions, filled with beautiful, hand made items from carefully chosen British suppliers that you won’t find on the high street.
We are based in the lovely (but often overlooked) county of Bedfordshire and we’re making it our mission 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.
If you can’t find a suitable box we are very happy to help you to create your own selection. Just make your choice of items from our gift boxes or individual gifts page and email email@example.com with your selection. We can work together to create your perfect box.
Corporate clients – we know how hard it can be to choose the perfect gift for your valued staff and customers. See our Corporate gifting page for details of how we can help!
