1. You notify us within 48 hours of receipt via phone on 01590674395 or via email to
2. If required we will refund the cost of the hamper in full or we will replace the hamper. If the same hamper is not available, we will replace it with a hamper of equal or higher value.
3. You will not be charged for the collection of your item nor for the delivery of a replacement hamper.
4. Please note that we are UNABLE TO REIMBURSE THE COST OF RETURNING AN ITEM TO US UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES, as we will arrange collection through our own carrier at no cost to you.
5. If you arrange for us to collect an item from you or your recipient which, after being assessed by our hamper quality control department is not deemed to be damaged or defective, please note that we reserve the right to deduct the cost of collection from your refund.
6. The above cost of collecting an item will be equal to its original, published delivery charge, including any applicable ‘out of area’ surcharges. This will exclude any special offers or discounts which have been applied to the delivery charge at the time of purchase.
We are not responsible for late delivery of any hampers or gift due to:
1. Adverse weather conditions
2. Incomplete or incorrect delivery addresses
3. Any other causes beyond our reasonable control
We are unable to offer product or delivery refunds for failed fresh food deliveries that are due to the recipient not being at home or due to us having been provided with an incorrect delivery address.
Wines & Spirits
Many of our gifts contain alcohol, therefore the minimum age to order these types of gifts is 18 years of age. It is an offence to purchase or attempt to purchase alcoholic liquor under the Licensing Act 2003 if you are under the age of 18.
Product shelf life
In respect of ambient hampers we guarantee a minimum shelf life of 21 days for the earliest dated product within the gift unless the hamper is being sold on a specific promotion which compensates for the reduced shelf life. For fresh food hampers (which can include cheese, fish, meat and pates) we guarantee a minimum shelf life of 3 days for the earliest dated product within the gift unless the hamper is being sold on a specific promotion which compensates for the reduced shelf life. Our shelf life promise is only guaranteed if the delivery of the hamper is successful on the carrier's first attempt.
Some of the products within our hampers contain allergens such as nuts, egg, milk and gluten. Please contact us directly if you require further information.
