General Delivery Info

Dispatch Info

We dispatch orders, both for UK and international delivery, from our warehouse in Cowes, England.  We always make sure your purchases are picked efficiently, packaged securely and sent to you as quickly as possible.

Most orders placed before 1pm, Monday to Friday, are dispatched from our warehouse the same day, subject to stock availability and mandatory security checks, via Royal Mail or our express couriers ParcelForce and UK Mail.

Orders placed at weekends, on bank holidays or after 1pm during the week are processed and dispatched on the next working day.

We endeavour to dispatch all orders within 24 working hours.

Delivery Charges

The standard delivery charge for your order will be clearly displayed on the Shopping Basket page, before you start the checkout process.   At this point you can select a faster / tracked service if preferred.  All methods suitable for your order will be displayed along with their respective prices.

The default delivery destination is 'United Kingdom' so, if you're ordering from elsewhere, be sure to select your country from the drop-down list in order to calculate the correct delivery charge and ensure your parcel is correctly addressed.   If you live in the UK please enter your postcode and click 'update basket' to bring up the delivery methods relevant to your order

Choosing your Delivery Address

Once you've decided which amazing gifts and gadgets to buy, the next important decision is where to receive delivery.  Help us to get your order to you quickly and efficiently, first time, and we'll all be helping the environment by reducing our carbon footprints - everyone's a winner!

Gifty Gadgety orders may be sent via 'recorded' delivery services that require a signature on receipt and operate between 9am and 5.30pm on weekdays.  Please bear this in mind when placing your order, and be sure to specify a delivery address where someone reliable will be able to sign for your parcel between these hours - your work address, if necessary.

Express Delivery

When time is of the essence, we suggest that our customers select an Express Delivery option when checking out.

Orders with Express Delivery receive priority handling and dispatch, and are sent by a 'next-day' (UK mainland) or expedited (UK non-mainland and international) delivery service.  Express Delivery orders are dispatched on the day of ordering, subject to stock availability and standard security checks, providing that orders are placed before 1pm.

Please note: you must select Express Delivery when placing your order as we are unable to upgrade delivery once an order has been sent to the warehouse.  Please ensure you provide us with a valid contact telephone number at time of ordering.  This will not be used for any purpose other than to inform you of urgent issues regarding your order or relating to its delivery.

Express Delivery is now available to our international customers for the majority of orders.  If you require a faster-than-standard service or simply want to be able to track your order please select a method from the drop-down list on the Shopping Basket page once you have selected your country and entered your postcode / ZIP code.


UK Express Delivery Guarantee

If you upgrade to one of our Express Delivery services and our delivery partners do not attempt to deliver to you within the stated time frame, we'll refund you the difference between the Express and standard delivery charge.

Free UK Delivery Info

Spend over a certain amount and, with a wave of our magic wand, we'll grant you FREE standard delivery within the UK.

The level of loot required to override the Delivery Charge Generator depends on your delivery destination.  Mainland UK orders need only reach £50 to get free delivery.  However, due to higher postal costs, orders to other parts of the UK qualify over £75.

Regrettably, it's not currently possible to offer a free delivery level for international orders, though this is something we hope we'll be able to arrange in the not-too-distant future.

See the table below for our destination-specific free delivery levels:

Destination FREE Delivery Level

Other UK
Islands
FREE DELIVERY over £75!
Channel

FREE DELIVERY over £75!
Europe Sorry - not currently available
USA and Canada Sorry - not currently available
Rest of the world Sorry - not currently available

Once you've added the products you wish to purchase, select your delivery destination from the drop-down country list.  If your order surpasses the free delivery level for your chosen destination, the delivery charge will automatically display as £0.00 and a thrifty grin will creep across your face.

If your basket's contents is under the free delivery threshold, a delivery charge will still be applied.  Simply add some more Gifty Gadgety loot to your basket to qualify for free delivery.

Please note: Free delivery means free standard delivery to your chosen destination - see the relevant delivery table, below, for timescales and other details.

You can still choose to upgrade to Express Delivery if you need your goodies quicker.
