Sending Someone a Special Gift?

Here are our Top 3 Shipping Tips

Watch for peak-time delays!
This is particularly important if you are shipping to India, but should be okay for UK deliveries. If you are shipping a gift to India it can take up-to 2-4 days for your parcel to arrive. We advise sending your gift as soon as possible to avoid any delays at customs that may be caused by the surge of people sending gifts to relatives and loved-ones back home. Also, check our prohibited goods lists to make sure your items are okay to be shipped.

If you are shipping to somebody in the UK, use our next day delivery service for that added reassurance your gift arrives on time. 

Pack it properly!
The most important bit is to choose a new box to transport your gift in. This will provide the maximum amount of protection. We absolutely advise that you don’t use any form of gift-wrapping as the outer packaging, instead, use it as the inner packaging. Use packaging chips or newspaper to then fill in any leftover space to stop the items moving around during transit.

You should also wrap any loose items individually and reinforce any hinges and flaps with packaging tape for added protection. This is particularly important if you are using an old box. The box should feel self-supporting when you lift it. Remember! Place a copy of the shipping paperwork that we automatically provide on the outer packaging of the package.

Track your order
We include expert parcel tracking with every booking so you can keep an eye for when your parcel arrives.
