Tracked Courier Delivery Service

Once your hamper has been despatched from British Hamper HQ in Lincolnshire you will receive an email from our courier DHL which will contain tracking details. Please check your email Spam folder in case the DHL email lands there.

You will receive an email from DHL once your hamper has been dispatched

With the DHL On Demand Delivery service, you will receive an email that confirms despatch of your shipment, including its scheduled delivery date. The email also contains a link to the DHL website which allows you to track the transit progress or make any changes to the delivery if required.


Should you need to make a change to your hamper delivery there are up to six alternate delivery options available on the DHL Manage Your Delivery website including, changing the delivery date, leaving with a neighbour or even requesting it be put on hold during a vacation. This excellent service tool is easy to use and the site can be accessed from any smartphone, tablet or PC by clicking the link in the DHL On Demand email you will receive when your hamper is dispatched.

What happens if my recipient is not at home when delivery is attempted?

If the courier attempts delivery and nobody is at home to receive the parcel the courier will leave a calling card at the recipients address and you will also receive an email from DHL On Demand confirming they were unable to deliver.

You can rearrange delivery easily by using the DHL On Demand email sent to you. The recipient can also rearrange delivery by following the simple instructions provided on the calling card.

Please note if the hamper is a surprise gift your recipient may not act on the DHL calling card so we recommend you track the hamper progress and arrange redelivery for a more convenient date using the DHL On Demand website.

We are here to help should you require any further help making your delivery arrangements.

Recipient Contact Details

When providing delivery address details in checkout please provide a contact phone number for the recipient. This is only in case there are issues with the delivery, such as address difficulties or redelivery arrangements. Please note, that for all deliveries abroad – including Republic of Ireland – a UK mobile number will not be sufficient, and it must be a local mobile or landline telephone number.

If your country isn't on the list please contact us and we'd be happy to provide an international parcel delivery price for your country.

Remote Area Delivery

Delivery to remote areas takes slightly longer than the 'Earliest Delivery Date' displayed below each hamper, however once you have entered your delivery address details in checkout an updated 'Earliest Delivery Date' will be displayed on the following 'Delivery Dates' checkout page.

Please note there may be an additional remote area surcharge if your delivery destination is in a remote area within your selected country (for example UK Highlands and Islands, Australian Outback, the Alps). The remote area surcharge is an additional fee charged by our couriers and in order to keep delivered prices competitive for all customers unfortunately we have to charge up to £10 for delivery to these areas. If a remote area surcharge is required it will be displayed on the 'Delivery Dates' checkout page before you have checked out.

International delivery restrictions

Due to customs and excise restrictions we are unable to send our luxury gift hampers containing alcohol or meat to countries outside the EU. However your lucky gift recipients outside of the EU wouldn't be missing out as we have a fantastic range of luxury food hampers full of artisan British produce that we can deliver worldwide.

**Delivery via BFPO cannot be tracked, please refer to our Terms and Conditions for full details.

For guaranteed delivery please ensure you provide a correct delivery address and recipient telephone number.  Unfortunately we are unable to deliver to PO Box Addresses. Please refer to our Terms and Conditions for full delivery information requirements.

I sent a hamper to my Dutch friend who used to be my neighbour. We both moved away about the same time. The hamper (for her 91st birthday) delighted her and her sister and brought us back into contact. Thanks a lot.

Used The British Hamper Co for the past two Chrismas’s to send hampers to Hong Kong, there is a good choice and I like that you can see the total cost inc delivery. Contact is really good and tracking the delivery is easy. I would recommend you to anyone wanting to send hampers overseas.

My recipients were overjoyed to receive the Christmas hamper. They said it was a gift that just on kept giving. I was truly impressed with the on line experience which was so easy. The ease in which the delivery address in France was located and the swift delivery service from the UK to France. I would definitely use the English Hamperes co. Again and highly recommend your service. Well done and thank you.

I have sent hampers with your company to a relatively remote part of Australia and have found your service excellent. The process was absolutely seamless and the hampers arrived well in time. Your communication and attention to detail is top notch.
