    Gift ideas for letterbox delivery

    With so many people we are still unable to see in person, it’s more important than ever to find special gifts which can easily pop through a letterbox.

    Here is a selection of our favourite postable gifts which can be delivered to you to send to your loved one or sent by us direct (don’t forget you can add a gift message at checkout).

    Our purses come in several sizes from coin purses for bank cards and coins to flat purses with a keyring for added usefulness and enough room to pop your passport or pens and pencils.

    The reduce, reuse, relax range is ideal for those with the environment in mind when they pack their lunches, snacks and picnics.

    Sandwich wraps and snack pouches work well alone or as a pair and with lots of designs to choose from there really is a print for everyone!

    A tea towel is the ultimate letterbox friendly present – it folds so small and opens out so big!
    Our tea towels are so loved they are used and used and worn out and replaced.
    They also look pretty amazing framed or hanging on a wall as decoration.

    Sometimes a little embroidered badge is all it takes to show someone you are thinking of them, or to mark an occasion, celebration or achievement.

    Christmas decorations to bring out year after year…

    Christmas decorations aren’t just for Christmas. Well, not just for one Christmas at least. 

    Poppy Treffry wreath and candles

    All of our wooden decorations are designed by Poppy Treffry on her trusty old Singer sewing machine and printed locally on sustainable timber.

    They are then packaged in a beautiful recycled box, ideal for sending as a gift and for putting away safely each year ready for the next one.

    Wooden wreath

    The wooden wreath is perfect for winter long decoration with no need to keep for Christmas! Hang it on a door to keep it traditional, lay on the table with a candle in the middle for a charming centrepiece or hang a dingly dangly decoration in the hole to showcase your favourite.

    Birthday month gift guide

    October really is the month where we keep on giving!

    With so many birthdays of friends and family all needing a carefully thought out gift we know how tricky it can be to choose the perfect present so we have put together some suggestions from our collections to help you…

    For a dog lover:

    Don’t waste time barking up the wrong tree and treat the dog lover in your life to a four legged friends gift. The dachshund fabric is a smile winner, but the four legged friends design has most dog breeds covered!

    For a walker:

    Save yourself trekking round the shops looking for inspiration and choose a mini dry mat to be popped in a bag and whipped out when a rest is needed but the seating is just too damp. Pair it with a snack pouch for the Kendal mint cake and your loved one is prepped for their next ramble.

    For a tea lover:

    With our products being ‘stitched by the sea with a nice cup of tea’ we know the importance of a good cuppa! Our tea cosies, mugs and coasters are perfect for other tea lovers wanting to create the perfect atmosphere for enjoying their hot brew.

    For a Cornish seaside fan:

    You may not be able to bring them the salty wind in their hair, but you can give them a gift handmade by the Cornish coast to remind them of holidays. Perhaps the seagulls can protect their sandwiches in a wrap rather than pinching them? The seaside lunch bag is a lovely scene to carry around and the seagull coasters say it all really – “Oh I do like to be beside the seaside”.

    For a stitcher:

    You’ll be able to find a wonderful gift for the stitcher in your life with these products which all have the sewing theme threading through them. The sewing mug, project bag and badge all feature the iconic Singer machine that Poppy does all her original design on.

    For an eco-conscious eater:

    Just like good friends, these gift ideas are ready to join the lunch table or picnic blanket again and again. When we were all bringing our own reusable lunch carriers into the studio we knew it was time to start making our own! The sandwich wraps, lunch bags and new snack pouches are so popular, making wonderful gift sets when grouped together.

    For a wild swimmer:

    Don’t get your bikini bottoms in a twist thinking of a gift for a wild swimming fan, we make gifts that are beautiful and practical!
    The bathers large wash bag is made to fit a cossie and Turkish towel in with a water resistant lining. The bathers sandwich wrap can be tucked in too with a yummy snack ready for re-energising after a dip.

    Some of our Cornish favourites

    We have teamed up with some of our favourite Cornish businesses for National Friendship Day 2021 and an Instagram giveaway.

    Our Poppy Treffry addition to the giveaway is a pair of our mini dry mats so that our winning friends can sit outside no matter how damp the seating is and enjoy their Cornish treats…

    There’s only so much we can say in an Instagram caption, so here’s a bit more about why we love them so.

    St Eval

    Beginning as a family business St Eval’s gorgeous candles and complimentary products are still made on their working farm.

    Inspired by nature, traditional methods and staying local, St Eval continue to ‘strive to improve, innovate and nurture’.

    At Poppy Treffry Towers we love their evocative scents, stylish packaging and integrity.

    Penzance Gin

    The amber colouring and smooth, earthy taste is created by the length of time the botanicals are steeped in Penzance Gin.

    Their ethos includes ‘much laughter’ and being made so close to our studio, their iconic image of the Jubilee Pool and our love of gin we really are big fans!

    Tugboat Coffee

    At Poppy Treffry Towers we are big coffee fans, indeed some may say that our mornings are powered by it, and of course so many of our products are ‘stitched by the sea with a nice cup of tea’.

    When we found Tugboat in Truro we knew we were onto a winner! Jess and Mike love tea and coffee as much as we do – just they know so much more about it – and the ability to get it posted to the studio before supplies run low means minimum effort for maximum deliciousness.

    Cornish Blooms

    Beth and Simon at Cornish Blooms take family knowledge and use it to grow English flowers following the seasons.

    Beautiful blooms are grown on their farm then picked and sent direct from them resulting in ‘sensible prices’ and the freshest flowers delivered with love.

    As our Poppy Treffry studio is nestled amongst the woods we feel particularly aware of the seasons passing and love our floral gifts to fit the Cornish flow of nature - regardless of where we are sending them to in the UK…

    Cornish gifts for your Christmas eve box

    This still feels like a fairly new tradition, but what a lovely one it is!
    There's nothing quite like gathering the family round (perhaps virtually this year) and unpacking fresh festive PJs, some yummy treats and a seasonal story before snuggling down with your warm cocoa to read, watch a film or fall asleep listening out for Santa's sleigh bells...
    Here we've gathered together some of our Cornwall gift favourites to inspire you:
    The Mousehole Cat is such a wonderful story based on a legend local to our Cornwall studio.
