FAQs

ORDERS

I haven't received a confirmation order email?

Please can you check your junk mail folder in the first instance in case your order confirmation email has landed in there.  If you are concerned that you have not received any notification please contact us on hello@giftsforlittleones.com.  

Orders with Pre-Order items

Please note where your order includes 'in-stock' and 'pre-order' items the complete order will be despatched as soon as the 'pre-order' items have arrived into stock.  If you require any 'in-stock' items urgently we suggest placing a separate order for those items so that the order is despatched within one working day of placing it and is not held up by the arrival of 'pre-ordered' goods. 

On occasion the expected date of arrival of pre-order items may change due to shipping delays etc, we will contact you where the date is significantly different from expectation.

(For further information regarding Pre-Order items - see Pre-Order FAQ's)

DELIVERY

Delivery Methods

We use a tracked service: Royal Mail's 'Tracked 24' and 'Tracked 48' for all small parcels (Tracked 24 is 1-2 working days, Tracked 48 is 2-3 working days) and have found that this is an improved service giving our customer's more control over the timing/place of delivery of their parcels; with an email and text message notification from Royal Mail to inform the expected day and time band for delivery. 

In addition we use Royal Mail 'Special Delivery - Guaranteed Next Day and 'Saturday Guaranteed Delivery' for more urgent orders which should be placed by 11am Mon-Thurs for Next Day (Mon-Fri Only) and by 11am Friday for the Royal Mail Guaranteed Saturday Delivery Service. 

We review Royal Mail service updates regularly to identify any issues with parcel delivery timescales.  

During the current situation with the lockdown due to Coronavirus we are aware that Royal Mail are experiencing some disruption to their services resulting in delays to mail delivery timescales from staff shortages due to coronavirus and increased mail volumes as the whole of the UK is more reliant upon mail order whilst in isolation and following social distancing rules.  Royal Mail are working extremely hard to meet demand however we cannot guarantee items will be delivered in accordance with Royal Mail's usual high standards of efficiency in the current situation facing the country.              

What are your shipping charges?

For orders under £40 delivered to a UK (Mainland) address we offer the following Royal Mail Tracked services:

'Tracked 48' 2-3 Working days - £3.95

'Tracked 24' 1-2 Working days - £4.95

'Special Delivery - Guaranteed Next Day' (Mon-Thurs) please note that this service is based on the weight of the parcel and therefore varies; the starting rate for a small parcel up to 500g is £7.55.  Please note orders must be placed by 11am for Next Day Delivery Mon-Thurs. 

When Placing an order on a Friday for Next Day Delivery this will arrive on the following Monday (Excl Bank Holidays) unless Royal Mail Next Day SATURDAY DELIVERY is selected - Please note that this service is at an increased cost due to it being a Saturday. 

For orders over £40 delivered to a UK (Mainland) address delivery is FREE using the Royal Mail 'Tracked 48' 2-3 Working Day Delivery Service.

For all addresses outside the UK please see our shipping pages as the price depends upon the weight to be shipped.  All prices for delivery outside the UK (Mainland) include either a 'tracked and signed for', 'signed for' or 'tracked' service depending upon the country.  For further details please see our shipping page.
