Delivered Price

The gift basket prices advertised all include packaging and carriage to your chosen destination.

As default, the prices advertised include delivery to a United States mainland (non remote area) address, however if your gift basket is to be delivered to another country/region simply select the delivery destination from the drop down box below the basket price and select the desired country; the price displayed will then be updated to show the delivered price for your delivery location.



DHL used By The British Hamper Company

We only use couriers who provide the highest level of service such as DHL. All of our United States and international delivery services provide track and trace for your peace of mind.


Specific delivery date in mind?

No matter where in the world you are sending your gift basket, you can select your preferred delivery date when entering your delivery address details in checkout and we will endeavor to deliver your gift basket on or just prior to the date you have selected. However, please note this is a guideline only and cannot be guaranteed as very occasionally factors beyond our control can sometimes cause delay.

When you have selected the gift basket you are interested in the earliest delivery date available for your country of choice will be displayed when you select the delivery country under the gift basket image.











In checkout when submitting delivery address details, you can choose to select this date or a future date for the intended occasion.   











If you find the date selector box isn't displayed on your device you may need to update your browser, or update your IOS if ordering on Iphone/IPad. Alternatively please use a different device or give us a call on +44 01522 581 581 and we'll gladly assist with your order.

Tracked Courier Delivery Service

Once your gift basket has been dispatched 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 dispatch 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 gift basket 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 neighbor 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 gift basket 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 gift basket is a surprise gift your recipient may not act on the DHL calling card so we recommend you track the gift basket 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, 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 gift basket, 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 baskets 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 baskets full of artisan British produce that we can deliver worldwide.

* The time scales provided are a useful guide however please also 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.
