Delivery is FREE on all orders over £40 otherwise a flat rate of £3.50 to cover postage and packing will be applied to your order.
Most parcels will be sent out by courier.  Smaller parcels will be sent by the Royal Mail First Class service and will be sent out the next working day.  

Gift Wrap
If you are sending the item as a gift please let us know in the notes section of the Shopping Cart and we will send the invoice to you separately.  We will wrap your gift and include a message with your package at no extra cost.

European Union
All parcels will be sent out using an International Courier Service and will be sent out the next working day.  You will be charged a flat rate of £20 no matter what the size so the more you order the better the value.

Rest of World
Due to the very high courier costs, we are not able to offer a flat rate for shipping products outside of the European Union.  However, if you are keen to purchase something we can give you a quote for sending out your order based on the size and weight.  Please contact us by emailing
