CHRISTMAS DELIVERIES - Important Information

  • During the lead up to Christmas Australia Post will deliver on Saturdays and evenings, and will continue to deliver right up until Monday 24th December, therefore deliveries requested for Monday 24th December may arrive earlier than expected.
  • Our delivery estimates are based on delivery guarantees supplied by Australia Post. Please note that on rare occasions there can be unforeseen delays, which we do everything in our power to prevent or assist in rectifying.
  • Occasionally an Express or Preferred Date Delivery may not arrive on the next day due to Christmas delivery volume, despite the best efforts of the delivery driver. We will not be able to refund the cost of upgraded shipping in these instances.
  • We will continue offer deliveries right up until the Australia Post cut offs. The majority of orders will arrive in time for Christmas, but inherently some will not - this could include a card being left and the recipient not being able to pick the hamper up until after Christmas.
  • Our Customer Service Team are available during extended hours over Christmas to assist you with your delivery queries - select Contact Us in the Help menu above for more information.

Hospital Deliveries

  • Most hospitals have specific guidelines regarding delivery of gifts to patients – it is advisable to contact the specific hospital in advance to find out how their deliveries are received (eg. deliver to loading dock on Smith St, leave with reception in the Lindo Wing off George St).
  • Please provide as much detail as possible about the recipient – bed/room number, ward name/number, full name and street address of hospital – and ensure that the name on the delivery address matches the name under which the patient is registered at the hospital.
  • Please note that if a parcel needs to be sent to an alternative address due to the patient already being discharged, an applicable redelivery fee will be passed on to the sender.

International Deliveries

  • We deliver to any address in Australia.
  • For international deliveries, we advise finding a suitable gift and hamper provider in the destination country, as choosing a local provider will be significantly cheaper. Delays due to customs restrictions in many countries will also significantly compromise the quality of the gift and hamper contents.
