DELIVERY INFORMATION

Ireland & UK Standard Delivery Lead Times

The majority of our items being personalised we have lead times which can be seen below for each type. We aim to complete production of items as quickly as possible. Once items have been produced they will be

dispatched based on the delivery option you choose.

Once you have placed your order we begin the process of personalising your item/s. The personalisation production time varies depending on the type of product. This then affects the total time from placing your order to delivery. Below you will see a guide to the lead times for our most common items.

How Deliveries Are Made & To Where

Gifts By Post will deliver the Products ordered by you to the address you give for delivery when you make your order. You may specify a delivery address which is different from your invoice address, if, for example, you would like us to deliver the Products directly to a friend, a relative, or to your place of work.

Heavier items such as the newspaper books are normally sent via a ‘sign-for’ service and urgent deliveries are always ‘sign-for’ service.

Please Note

The above are dispatch/production times, please add 1 to 3 days to above dispatch times for delivery dependent on location and delivery type selected.

  1. A day is defined as a working day – Monday to Friday
  2. A full day counts on orders placed before 11am (so order received on Tuesday 3pm on 4-day delivery means next Monday.)
  3. Next day delivery (where offered) only if order received before 11am.
  4. Gifts By Post currently dispatches from 3 factories – so a single order of multiple items may be dispatched separately.
  5. P&P charged per ORDER but the order lines must be placed together at the same time, using the same order reference, going to the same address. Some products from separate factories may incur a separate additional delivery charge.
  6. Delivery to Non-UK Mainland addresses including the Highlands may take an extra 1-2 days.
  7. We cannot deliver to PO Box addresses
  8. No alcohol is shipped outside of the EU
  9. Please note there may be restrictions regarding size and weight which may require additional shipping charges.
  10. Items are not dispatched with any receipt/order information so are perfect to send directly to the recipient.
