How to Send Gift Hampers to Australia from Overseas
Date Posted:11 May 2023
There are so many occasions when you might want to arrange a gift delivery in Australia for a special occasion. While most of our overseas orders are hampers from people in the UK or USA sending a gift to a family member in Australia, we get orders from all over the world.
According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics, 30% of Australia's population was born overseas. The majority of those people were born in England, India, China, New Zealand, and the Philippines. The majority of Australians have extended family members living overseas. If that sounds like your family, you're not alone!
And, as you likely already know, staying in touch by being able to send gifts overseas for special milestones and important occasions is essential. That's where we come in. In this guide, we'll show you how to send gift hampers to Australia from overseas.

FAQs about ordering gift hampers from overseas
Can I place an order from outside of Australia?
Absolutely! You don’t need to live in Australia to place an order with us. Here at The Hamper Emporium, we are delighted to help you send some love from your end of the world to ours. We deliver to any address within Australia and can offer gift card options if you want your gift recipient to have the power to choose their own hamper.
Is it possible to send a birthday gift hamper internationally?
Unfortunately, we can't ship hampers internationally. As each country has its own shipping regulations, we can't guarantee that your hamper will arrive complete and in good condition.
We do offer hampers in New Zealand, however.
Can you send a gift basket from the UK to Australia?
Yes, but we don't recommend it. While you can ship a gift to Australia yourself, it's easier, faster, and more cost-effective to order online with an Australian hamper gift delivery service. Postage costs and delivery times are extreme, and some gifts have even been returned due to import restrictions.
If you're sending gifts to Australia from the UK, USA, India or countries in the northern hemisphere, don't forget the seasons are also reversed! While you might be snuggled up in your winter woollies as Christmas approaches, your Australian friends and family will be looking forward to a cold beer or champagne cocktails on the beach. Likewise, if you're in the mood for a weekend summer picnic, then loved ones down under might prefer a cosy winter hamper or Australian food to enjoy by the fire.
Can you still show corporate appreciation to your partners in Australia?
Yes! We offer a range of corporate branding options, including offering custom ribbons, custom gift cards, and custom branding to make your hamper memorable. You can set up a corporate account and place corporate orders here.
Are there any hidden costs associated with ordering from overseas?
Ordering hampers from overseas doesn't add any hidden costs or change our procedures or prices. It also won't take any longer than an order made from within the country. Here at The Hamper Emporium, we offer free, standard delivery Australia-wide for all orders – even if you order from overseas.
What payment options do you offer for orders from overseas?
We offer a range of payment options for a seamless and easy gift purchase. Payments can be made with Visa, MasterCard, PayPal, American Express, AfterPay, zipPay, or Direct Deposit. All orders will be processed and paid for in Australian Dollars.
The checkout process is easy and quick, and you will receive an email confirmation with tracking details.
Can I place an overseas order using your website?
Yes! Our secure online ordering system is the easiest and fastest way to place an order with The Hamper Emporium. Using our online store ensures you can check that all of the details you are entering are correct, and you can easily browse our entire range.
