How long will it take for my order to arrive?

You should receive your delivery within 3-5 working days. I will always let you know by email that your order is being dealt with and also when it’s gone in the post - so you won’t be kept in the dark! However, please allow up to 7 working days before you make contact with any issues.

Who will deliver my order?

Royal Mail, using their 2nd Class service. (For certain heavier packages, Parcel Force will be used.)

You will not need to sign for receipt of your delivery, but if you are out and the item is too large to post through your letterbox and/or a neighbour is not available to take delivery, Royal Mail will leave instructions with you in these circumstances, making it clear what action you need to take, via a red & white “Something for you” card.

Perhaps you work, or would like your gifts sending direct to a friend or family member? No problem! Simply use the box provided at the checkout to confirm the details.

I always request a "Proof of Postage" document from the Post Office for each order sent out to customers and these are kept on file in case of a query.
