At ihampers we employ a highly trained, UK based, Sales and Customer care team who are committed to ensuring the best possible service to our customers.
We are only too happy to deal with any enquiries you may have regarding our UK online hamper order and welcome any feedback or comments you may have relating to your experiences with ihampers.
We ask that all messages are below 200 characters, to ensure that they fit neatly on our message cards.
We respect the privacy of our customers. We will only ever disclose the contents of the message card to the recipient. If you do not include your name on the card (which can even be left completely blank if you wish), the recipient will not know who the order is from. If the recipient should contact us to enquire, please rest assured that we will not disclose your personal details and will reiterate to the recipient that we can only disclose the contents of the customer specified message card.
Yes, you can order up to 3 months in advance if you wish.
You will be given a chance to add this voucher code to your order on the "shopping basket" page, before proceeding with payment.
If you no longer require your hamper, please contact customer services as soon as possible to discuss.
We typically need 24 hours notice to amend the details of an order. During peak events, however, such as Mother's Day, Valentine's Day or Christmas, we typically require at least 2 business days notice to make any such changes. Note also that we are unable to make changes to an order once it has been dispatched from either our central dispatch point or our local supplier. Orders with personalised or digitalised greetings card are printed at the time of order and unfortunately, cannot be amended or cancelled.
We usually issue refunds immediately, however many credit card companies, banks and building societies impose a delay in transferring the funds to your account. This is typically between 2-5 working days, but can take as long as 10 days in some cases. If you have not received your refund after 10 days, please contact us.
We ask for a minimum of 24hours notice to make any changes. If you are requesting any changes on the date of delivery or the date before, we will make every effort though we can't guarantee this.
At busy periods, such as Christmas, Valentine's Day and Mother's Day, the minimum time required may be extended to 72 hours. Due to the volume of orders being processed, deliveries may be prepared and organised in good time and so some changes may not be possible.
Please use the email option to the right side of this page to inform us of any changes to your order. To email us, please click here.
In the unlikely event that you should receive an error when trying to pay for your order, your details will be stored securely on our system but no money will be taken from your card. You may then re-attempt payment, making sure to enter the correct details. If payment fails again, it is likely that you have insufficient funds in your account. You are free to try another card if you wish, or terminate the order process until such a time that payment can be completed. Your order will not be executed and you will not be charged.
You may select your delivery day and - in the case time sensitive items - a delivery time by which the order must be delivered. For all other orders, delivery typically takes place between 9am and 6pm. We are unable to specify a time, for example "between 10am and 11am" and can only stipulate that your order will be delivered during the working day. For time sensitive deliveries, you will be asked to provide further details during the checkout process.
Dependant on the contents of your order, we have several methods of delivery. You will be shown a list of available delivery methods during the checkout process and can select your preferred choice.
If the recipient is not available at the delivery address specified, we will typically leave the order with a neighbour or in a safe place at the delivery address. Alternatively, we may attempt redelivery later in the day. If this is not feasible or the recipient is unavailable when a later delivery is attempted, we will usually leave a calling card explaining what has happened. This will then allow the recipient to arrange collection of their gift locally. They may also be able to request delivery the next day.
Due to the fresh nature of many of our products, we cannot be held responsible for deliveries which fail because your chosen recipient is not available at the given address. 24 hours after failed delivery and/or lack of contact from the intended recipient, the courier delivered items will be returned to our HQ - we would then contact you to notify as such.
We can deliver most items Tuesday to Sunday. Gifts delivered by our local shops and suppliers are available for Monday delivery. Selected courier delivered items can now also be delivered on a Monday - you can check availability on the product delivery calendar available alongside each product.
Delivery varies depending on your order. Please contact customer services for more information.
Yes - if your order contains multiple items, you will be given options to deliver each item to one address, or each item to an individual address. You may also deliver particular items (one or more) to individual addresses, and the remainder to a further address. Multiple items going to the same address will incur separate delivery charges. Delivery charges will vary per item.
Please be aware that some hospitals have a strict policy on deliveries for certain departments and wards - this typically applies to any product classed as "fresh", such as fresh food, flowers or plants. To avoid disappointment, please check before ordering that the hospital in question allows such deliveries.
Having checked that your gift is permitted, please ensure that you carefully and correctly address your order to avoid confusion during delivery. The address should include as much information as possible; at the very minimum the recipients full name, ward name/number and the full address of the hospital including street name and postcode.
We cannot guarantee delivery dates for deliveries to non-mainland UK addresses. While we do carry out such deliveries, these orders may require an additional 24 hours for delivery. This also applies to the following UK postcode areas:
AB3-5, 30-39, 41-45, 51-56; all BT; CA 18-19, DD6-11, FK14-21, G63; all GY, HS1-9, all JE; LA11, 18-21; all IM; IV1-28, 30-36, 40-49, 51-56, 63; KA27-28, KW1-17; PA20-50, 60-78, 80-88; PH10-26, 30-44, 49, 50; TR21-25; all ZE.
We also reserve the right not to deliver to any address which we deem to be insecure, such as communal postal address or to a PO Box, or unsafe for whatever reason. If this applies to your order, you will be contacted to arrange delivery to an alternative address or to come to another resolution.
You must be over 18 to send or receive any gift containing alcohol.
If you reason to suspect that your order may not have been delivered, having checked the order status within your account, please contact one of our advisors
