Delivery Information

Gift wrap and gift messages

Seek & Adore provides a gift wrap service and also offers you the opportunity to add a gift message to you order. You can select gift wrap and write a gift message at the checkout. You can also select which item in the order is a gift – so you don’t have to place separate orders if you are buying a gift and something for yourself.

Delivery charges

All delivery charges are clearly indicated on the “Delivery” tab on each of our product pages. The delivery costs are also summarised in your shopping basket, and you have the option to change these before placing your order.

We offer a range of delivery options and prices so that you can choose what is most appropriate. All our orders by are sent by recorded or registered post so you can track its progress. You will need to ensure someone  is available to sign for your order but you can arrange for an order to be delivered to a work address (just change the shipping address at the checkout).

If you order more than one item, you will pay a separate delivery charge for each item you order – even if you order a number of items from the same maker at the same time. This is because all our delivery charges are based on weight so the delivery price applies to the item not the order.

We do not make any money on delivery – we simply charge you what it costs our makers to send the product to you via Royal Mail or Parcelforce. If in doubt you can check the delivery price (which is calculated on the basis of the weight of the product when wrapped ready for despatch) on the Royal Mail’s Price Calculator. Many of our makers offer free UK standard delivery.

Each maker specifies which country they will deliver their products to – please check the “Delivery” tab on each product page for available options. We have provided an overview of our delivery options and starting prices which you will find at the bottom of this page.

Speed of delivery

When you place an order on Seek & Adore it is loving wrapped and despatched by the maker of the product. Makers have upto 4 days to despatch your order – but most orders are dispatched well within this time frame.  Depending on the delivery option you choose and your delivery address, it will take longer for your order to arrive. Estimated delivery times are provided for guidance on our product pages (and in the information below) but, as we are reliant on Royal Mail and Parcelforce to achieve these, we cannot guarantee these.

Seek & Adore provides a gift wrap service and also offers you the opportunity to add a gift message to you order. You can select gift wrap and write a gift message at the checkout. You can also select which item in the order is a gift – so you don’t have to place separate orders if you are buying a gift and something for yourself.
