  • The antidote to terrible and unimaginative gift-giving
  • Take a risk. Treat yourself. Treat someone else. It's guilt-free!
  • Heaps better than giving someone cold soulless cash
  • Give people something they weren't expecting for heaven's sake
582 8 10


Virtually everyone you know already has everything they want. They have everything they want, because they asked for it. And then you bought it for them. They sent you their Amazon wishlist and you picked from it. Or they bought it themselves and then said ‘oh just give me the money for it’. What a travesty.

Where’s the surprise eh? The mystery. The fidgety suspense. The giddy uncertainty. The face-pulling preparation in case you don’t like it but have to pretend you do. Just what is going on with people?

Has it really reached a point where we only want what we've chosen ourselves? How upsetting. There was a time when gift-giving used to have some proper courage. Out of a driving desire to impress and amaze, people took a risk. Got you something you weren’t expecting. Hell, receiving a gift used to be an experience. It meant something.

Now we know it’s easier said than done. We know finding and choosing cool gifts is hard. That’s where the Mystery Box works its magic, because we do all that for you! It’s the antidote to this terrible and unimaginative affliction. It gives you the priceless gift of anticipation. An injection of excitement and wonder. And in some cases even deflation.

It also lets you off the hook as you didn’t know what was in it either! It’s your guilt-free gifting silver bullet.

Treat yourself. Treat someone else. Just treat them to a bit of mystery. Put your fate in our hands.

Wow. The unusual mystery box was pure genius. A couple of things for me that were fab and a couple that I traded for chocolate with my hubby! I'll defo buy one again next year.
Michelle, Stoke On Trent - 27th December 2013
I bought the gadget box for my Dad for Xmas. It was a great supervise and the products would have cost a lot more to buy separately. Great gadgets that I would not have noticed myself. An amazing Christmas surprise. I will be ordering one next year and buying a lot more in the future.
LSHUCK, Preston, UK - 27th December 2013
Every year I buy a mystery box or two and spread the items around to my family and close friends. Watching their faces when they have to dip into the box and grab a prezzie is always a laugh! Keep 'em coming Firebox!!
