It is unclear why the postbox had been decorated or by whom
A postbox in Edinburgh has been completely covered in wrapping paper, topped off with a giant red ribbon.
A Royal Mail spokeswoman said the box on McDonald Road, near to the city's Brunswick Street sorting office, may have been wrapped up as a prank.
She suggested it could have been a "romantic gesture".
The wrapping has now been removed from the letter box and it is understood that none of the mail inside had been damaged.
