Free UK Delivery when you spend £20 (After discounts applied).
For international orders and sub £20 UK orders we never charge excessive amounts for postage and packaging. Our P&P charges are made up of the Royal Mail charge for the service plus a small contribution towards the packaging materials, plus VAT, which we are legally obliged to charge.
Same Day Dispatch
We aim to ship all items as soon as payment is cleared. This means that items ordered and paid for by 12 noon (UK time) Monday-Friday are dispatched on the same day. Items ordered and paid for after 12 noon or over the weekend are sent on the next working day.
Occasionally we may offer products available for pre-order e.g. advent calendars. For these items, we take payment and dispatch once they are in stock with us in the UK. If you check out with both pre-order and in stock items in your basket, shipping will be calculated separately for those in-stock items and they will be dispatched immediately.
