We will download your order during normal office hours (which may be the next working day for orders placed after lunchtime), and we will will aim to post it out as soon as possible depending on the required items and availability.

For hampers, you are able to select a 'preferred' date for delivery. If you select this, we'll aim to have your parcel dispatched the day before this date, where possible, If fresh goods are ordered, we work around their availablity for you.

DPD send emails and text messages to keep you informed on the status of your delivery, and will leave a card if the recipient is out.

If you have ordered an iced celebration cake, please allow us plenty of time to make and decorate your cake. We also require 1 full day for the icing to set.

Please note that although we will always endeavour to arrange to have your order delivered in time for your 'preferred date for delivery', we cant guarantee delivery for a specific date or time.
