Do you sell gift vouchers ?

We’ve introduced gift vouchers as simple store purchases. They are in multiples of 5.00, and will be delivered to your email address for you to pass on. If you have a different and specific gift in mind please call us to discuss, on + 44 01823 443335

For a voucher of 25.00 and over we can post a gift card to any address, with a personal message if appropriate, and free of charge within the UK. We allow two days for first class delivery, will notify you when it has ben sent, but can’t be held responsible for non-delivery by any means.
For Europe and the rest of the world we add a small charge – on application.

Can you gift wrap my order ?

All orders will be well wrapped and packed, and yes we can add special notes, even a card if you send it to us in time. The invoice and a copy of the delivery note will be sent to you electronically.

Once the payment has gone through the process can’t be stopped. Please email or call us for advice and we will discuss the options.

Can an order be sent to multiple destinations ?

Unfortunately not, only to your address. However, if your order is complex or a gift using one of our vouchers please email or call us and we’ll handle it manually.
