To do this we need to be able to communicate with you until your parcel is in your hands (or the hands of your giftee!). Please provide a valid e-mail address and mobile number so that we can send e-mail updates and TXT messages regarding the progress of your order. It is also important to ensure our emails (or the emails of our carriers) don't go to your spam folder. Ensuring valid contact details will mean that you will know where your parcel is at anytime. It will also allow an opportunity to provide alternative delivery options or possibily change the address after we send the parcel, if necessary. A lot can happen in the busy parcel networks so it's best to always keep up to date with the status of your parcel. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask us.
