Delivery Information

It's a gift, can I nominate a future delivery date?

Yes, at checkout we have the facility for you to select a preferred delivery date from a calendar. If a nominated delivery date is chosen we will not pick and pack your order until the day prior to ensure that your product arrives in the freshest possible condition. We would suggest setting your delivery date as early as possible to avoid any orders missing important dates due to unforeseen delays in transit. During busy/peak periods, or where we anticipate courier network delays, we may dispatch orders one day in advance to reduce the possibility of late delivery.

How do I track my order?

Our hampers are dispatched via 24hr courier service via APC network. When your order is dispatched you should receive your tracking number which you can enter on the APC tracking website. The website should provide the most up to date information and allow you to check on the progress or delivery status of your order. To track an existing order, visit the APC tracking site.

Can I send an order to multiple address?

Yes, simply add all the hampers you wish to order to your basket and proceed to checkout. In the shipping section of the checkout you will find an option button to 'Set Addresses'. On clicking this you will be able to allocate a different shipping address to each hamper ordered before proceeding through the checkout.

How will my order be sent?

All our orders are dispatched using a fully tracked 24hr or 48hr service (highlands & islands).

Although we cannot specify a time window (unless an upgraded service has been paid for) the courier will send an estimated window for your delivery once they are en-route.

If you are unable for any reason to make your delivery time, you can arrange one of the following actions with the courier. Change delivery dates, deliver to a trusted neighbour, leave the parcel in a specified safe place (at your risk), change the delivery destination, or upgrade your delivery to a times or weekend service.

Does someone need to be present to accept delivery?

As many of the items are perishable our default instruction to couriers is to leave the parcel in a safe place if no one is available. If you wish to specify any delivery instructions you can do so in the Courier/Delivery Notes box at checkout. Any instruction you add to this box will override our default instructions. Please note that if instructions are specified and these are adhered to by the courier, the parcel will be considered as delivered. Any responsibility for damage or loss as a result rests with the buyer.

If you have made arrangements to leave the delivery in a safe place, please be mindful of the impact this will have on any chilled goods included in the hamper.

Packing & packaging

Our standard carton packaging is a fully branded double walled box. This is printed on all sides with our logo presented on a full Cornish scenic background.

Our gift boxes are beautifully presented, premium quality rigid card boxes. These have a magnetic closure and our logo emblazoned on the lid.

Our wicker hampers add a real touch of class and are of the finest quality with leather closure straps.

The contents of our hampers are carefully packed and where necessary, protectively wrapped. We make every effort to minimise the possibility of breakages during transit. These are placed on a cushion of attractive coloured straw for presentation. All wicker hampers and gift boxes are sent inside a thick protective double walled outer to ensure it arrives in pristine condition.

What is the shelf life on hampers?

That depends on the hamper you are buying and the nature of the products inside. Many of our hampers have a long shelf life of 6 months+ however, hampers containing bakery and dairy products are highly perishable and need to be refrigerated as soon as received.

Typically all highly perishable products will have 1-2 week shelf-life. As a minimum indicator these products should be delivered with a minimum of 7 days left on any use-by date.

Please consider these shelf life times when choosing your delivery date. We cannot accept returns or offer refunds on any perishable products which were delivered but for use some time later.
