Delivery & Returns

Our standard and express delivery charges encompass Mainland UK only.

Our charges
The delivery charge is calculated at checkout based on the gift type and quantity. This process can be followed without any obligation to purchase.

The product descriptions also give an idea of delivery charges based on quantities of that, or a similar, item.

Express delivery will be despatched on the same day the order is placed, if prior to 1pm, Monday to Friday. If placed after this time, the order will be despatched the following working day.

Bulk delivery discounts
For multiple hampers being delivered to the same location we can offer a reduced rate. Please get in touch with us to receive a quote.

If you would like your gifts delivered outside of Mainland UK please contact us via email or telephone and we can provide a quote.

Once your order has been placed and paid in full for we will send an email confirmation to you. This should be instant, so please contact us if you do not receive this.

We dispatch all orders within 3-5 working days unless stated on the product description, however if you have asked us to send the item on a specific date then we shall send your parcel out on the date requested. All our deliveries are expected to be received within 3-5 working days.

Express next day delivery

This service is available Monday to Friday if the purchase takes place by midday the previous day. We do ask you to allow 1-2 working days for this service as on most occasions the hamper will be delivered within 24 hours but occasionally a 24 hour delay can occur during busier periods for our courier Fed Ex.

PO Boxes

We regret that we are unable to deliver to PO boxes.

Weekends & Bank Holidays

We are unable to deliver on Bank Holidays and weekends. We can offer a Saturday and Sunday delivery service subject to a surcharge, please email directly for a quote.

If you want to send part of your order to a different address (such as delivering directly to a friend) then please place a separate order for each address. 

Please note: if you choose ‘Premium Express Service’ then a fee will be charged per item for this service. If you only wish to send just one item via the premium delivery (chargeable) service then we advise you to order this one item as a separate order.

All our Carabella Gift hampers are delivered via courier, we can issue you with a tracking number if you are concerned about your delivery at any time. We keep a record of every parcel and can track each one so there should be no need for lost parcels. 

The Fed Ex local delivery driver will require a signature, unfortunately we cannot deliver your parcel to a safe place upon first attempt, but if the recipient is not present upon delivery, a card will be left stating that the delivery will be attempted again the next day unless the recipient contacts Fed Ex local directly and requests to pick the package up from the depot or indeed would like it delivered to safe place.

If the package has attempted to be delivered twice but unfortunately the recipient hasn't been present the gift will be sent back to our warehouse.  We can re-send your gift hamper but we would have to re-charge for delivery as we would be charged for this by our courier.

We suggest that if you are not sure that the recipient will be present to receive the package or the delivery address is particularly challenging, have the package delivered to a work address where someone is guaranteed to be available to sign for it. 

Delivery delays

We are not responsible for late delivery of any hampers or gift due to:

  1. Adverse weather conditions

  2. Incomplete or incorrect delivery addresses

  3. Any other causes beyond our reasonable control
