Deliveries, Returns & Cancellations
Where do you deliver?
We currently only deliver within the United Kingdom, but we hope for this to change in the near future, so keep your eyes peeled!
Our gift boxes are sent via courier, usually Hermes, although which provider we use for each parcel is at our discretion.
We have a flat rate for all boxes regardless of size and weight, which is £2.99 for standard delivery and £4.99 for express delivery. We generally offer free delivery over a certain amount, and reserve the right to offer free delivery as part of promotions that we launch and expire as we see fit.
We endeavour to get all boxes sent out as soon as feasibly possible, so there is a good chance you will receive your box sooner than anticipated. If this is not preferred, please state this in your delivery comments.
If our selected courier fails to make the delivery within the specified time, despite us dispatching within the agreed timeframe, we will happily refund any shipping costs. However, we are not liable for any other costs incurred for late deliveries outside of our control.
Returns & Cancellations
We do not include receipts or returns slips within our gift boxes, as they are generally sent as surprise gifts to recipients. Therefore, you must retain all email correspondence regarding your order.
We do not generally accept returns for hygiene reasons, as many of our products fall under the food, drink, skincare and beauty categories. However, if your order is incorrect, damaged or faulty, please email us at email@example.com. Please include your order numbers, a description of the issue (along with photographs if relevant), and we will find a solution. We must be notified of any issues within 14 days of the day the gift box was received.
Should you wish to cancel an order, please contact us at the earliest opportunity. We may not always be able to cancel the order, but providing it has not yet been dispatched, we will do our upmost to help.
