Can I choose when my order is delivered?

Due to COVID-related delays with both Standard and Express Delivery, we are currently unable to guarantee specific delivery dates. We do have offer a calendar in the shopping cart. We will always try our best to get your hampers delivered as close as possible to the date specified.

Orders placed before 1pm on a weekday will be sent out on the same day. The Delivery Instructions area on the check out is printed on the delivery label to give further instructions to the driver to access the address (eg reception on third floor, access via back lane, apartment is above the pharmacy), not for adding your preferred date for delivery.

Can you deliver on weekends or after hours?

Our couriers are only able to deliver on business days, within usual business hours. This means that deliveries only take place Monday-Friday, and are unable to be made on public holidays or weekends.

Occasionally during busier periods such as Christmas, Christmas hampers deliveries are made on weekends to residential addresses to keep up with demand. These deliveries cannot be requested or guaranteed.

Can I pick up my purchase?

Not currently available Due to Covid-19

What if no one is available at the delivery address at the time of delivery?

The courier will leave the hamper in a safe place or if it is unsafe, will leave a card and return the hamper to the nearest post office or news agency.

Will all of my ordered items arrive together?

If your order contains multiple hampers all going to the same delivery address, it is likely that your entire order will be delivered at once.

Each hamper is sent as its own individual parcel, with its own shipping label. This means that on the rare occasion, parcels can be separated from each other in transit. In this case, usually the hampers will arrive within a day of each other.

For more information, or if the remaining hamper(s) have still not arrived after a day or two, please contact our Customer Service Team.

Do you ship internationally?

Not at this point in time, but contact our Customer Service Team to discuss.

Will the delivery driver call upon arrival?

Unfortunately, our delivery drivers are unable to call recipients prior to or upon delivery.

We do advise to check with the recipients, to see if it is safe to leave the order at the premises or whether the order should go to the local post office for collection.

Additional delivery instructions can be added at the checkout, in order to assist the delivery drivers in having the order delivered successfully. For example, you may want to tell your driver to beware of the dog, or to enter the property from a side gate.

Please note that these delivery instructions act as a guide to our drivers, and listing a phone number here will not ensure that you or your recipients are called.

How can I track my order?

Once your order is shipped from our warehouse, we will notify you by email. An email will be sent with your tracking number.

My order hasn't arrived yet. What can I do?

Please make sure you have considered the estimated delivery date or delivery window for your order. If it is still within the delivery window or is prior to the delivery date, please wait until after this time has passed before contacting us.

My order has been Returned To Sender by the courier. What happens now?

Occasionally a hamper will be returned to us for one of the following reasons:

 A card was left but the recipient did not pick the package up from the post office or parcel locker.

The recipient is not known at that address or has moved.

The address details are incorrect or insufficient.

The delivery was refused.

There was no access to a secure building or complex to deliver or leave a card.

The recipient was in a hospital or hotel and has been discharged or checked out.

The courier could not contact the recipient and there was nowhere safe to leave the parcel.

Once your order arrives back at our warehouse we will inform you via email. You will have the option to have the order reshipped from our warehouse, although an applicable redelivery fee will be passed on to you to facilitate the delivery of the hamper to the same or an alternative address.

Please note that this process is subject to change at Christmas due to the volume of returns and the nature of the products being sent.

Having your order delivered safely and successfully is our courier's main priority. Once they arrive at the delivery address and no one is available, they will assess if it is secure enough to leave the parcel unattended. If it is not deemed secure, the courier will not leave the parcel at the location.

Can I redirect my order to a new address after it has been dispatched?

Once your order has been dispatched and picked up by our couriers, we are unable to guarantee that is can be redirected
