  •  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


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.

We bought a Booze box for my granddad for Christmas and he enjoyed it very much. A few things we couldn't work out what they were, but it was still very funny to see what he got.

I got the gadget box for my brothers 30th. When I got it I was worried what might have been in there because it was quite light. Once opened, there was no disappointment! Thank you firebox. Never disappoint!

I bought the Gadget, Booze Box, Home and Lifestyle and Unusual boxes for my families Christmas presents and they were amazing. Great items in each of them for fantastic value.... Christmas will the easiest holiday to buy for :).

Bought the usual box for my Mam, as she is so difficult to buy for, as she has everything already. My son and I had to have a peek though, the suspense was killing me. Suffice to say, the items were great and my Mam loved her mystery box. Will definately invest in some of the other mystery boxes. Excellent idea!
