FAQ's

Can I add a personal message to one of the cards?

Yes! In the cart / basket, there is a box entitled *Personalised message & delivery notes*  Simply enter your own words here, and we will handwrite your message on your chosen card for an extra personal touch. We have a huuuuge range of exclusively designed cards to choose from including ‘Thinking of You’ ‘Congratulations’ ‘You are Fab’ ‘Under the Weather’ ‘LOVE’ ‘Hot Mama’ ‘Something to Brighten Your Day’ ‘Hooray’ ‘Thank You’ ‘Adventure Awaits’ ‘Pretty Awesome’ ‘XOXO’ ‘Mum’ There’s no limit to the number of words - feel free to let your sentiments flow! The gift card is a decent A6 size, not a tiny tag-sized card.

Can I add an extra item(s) to a ready made gift package?

Absolutely! If you would like to add a gift(s) from our 'Make Your Own Gift' to any of our gift packages simply add it to your basket and we will add it into your box. Don't worry about it fitting in the box - if we need to size up the box to fit it in we will do that automatically as we have lots of different sized boxes to best fit the package.

Can I ask for delivery on a particular day?

There are a couple of options here.  With our free and express delivery services, Royal Mail gives us 'guidelines' for their delivery dates (ie 2 - 3 days) and we can try to get it as close as possible, but this option is not a guaranteed service.  We can also add one of our 'Do Not Open Until... (your date)' stickers on the box.  Just add details of the date you’d ideally like it delivered in the message box on your cart / basket page and we will do our best to get it delivered as close to that date as possible.

Our 'Guaranteed Next Working Day' service is the only way to ensure you get the specific day you need.  You can book it in advance and we'll make sure to get it there on a specific day (any day except Sundays and Public holidays) for you or you can order before 12 noon for guaranteed next day delivery (please note we dispatch Monday to Friday so orders placed after 12 noon on Friday will not be dispatched until Monday). If you’d like delivery on a specific future date on the message box in your cart. We can guarantee delivery any day of the week except Sundays and public holidays.

Do you deliver on a Saturday?

Yes we can but for guaranteed Saturday delivery the ‘Guaranteed day delivery’ option needs to be purchased. Order before 12 noon on a Friday     for delivery the next day with ‘Guaranteed Day Delivery’ 

Can your deliver on a Sunday or Public Holiday?

No, unfortunately we cannot offer this option.

Do you dispatch orders on a weekend?

No, we dispatch orders Monday - Friday except public holidays. 

 

How will my parcel look?

In one word... beautiful!  All our gift packages come in planet friendly packaging.  Inside the simply ‘IzzyBee’ branded white (non laminated) card box you will find luxury white spotty tissue paper, recycled shredded paper, all wrapped up with ribbon and the card tucked under the ribbon on top so as soon as the recipient opens the box it’s the first thing they see! The box is sealed with a sticker but if you’d rather that we send it unsealed please let us know in the message box at checkout.

Our gift boxes are mailed out in a waterproof recycled mailing bag with a ‘You’re in for a treat!’ IzzyBee sticker. If you’d like us to add a ‘Do not open until....’ (date of your choice) sticker to the outside of the parcel, just let us know in the message box in the basket / cart.

Our white willow gift hamper baskets are wrapped in eco- friendly recyclable concertina paper (a planet friendly, non-plastic alternative to bubble wrap), then wrapped in brown paper as the outer layer for mailing out.

How does the ‘Make Your Own’ Gift Package work?

1. First add the ‘Make Your Own’ box, choose which card you’d like here and add to your basket. There is a charge of £8 for the standard card gift box (or £18 for a white willow hamper) which includes a card with your message that we handwrite onto it, beautiful gift wrapping with shredded paper, tissue paper and ribbon and free standard UK delivery (3-5 working days).  Expedited delivery (1-2 working days) or Guaranteed day delivery (next working date or Guaranteed future date) can be selected at checkout stage.

2. Select your gifts here- as many or as few as you like!

You don’t have to worry about what will fit in your box - we have a wide range of sizes of boxes and hampers and will make sure we select the best fit for the items you choose. 

3. Checkout making sure you've added any gift message for the card at the basket / cart stage along with any instructions to us such as delivery date or to let us know if you require a ‘not to be opened until..,’ sticker. You can have the parcel delivered straight to the recipient or to yourself. We do not include any dispatch note or pricing information with the parcel. Please add a message to say who the gift is from unless you’d like the parcel to be sent anonymously.

Do you offer bespoke or corporate boxes?

Yes.  We can work with you to produce a really special box for any range of occasions either using the gifts you see on our website or sourcing products to suit your requirements.

If you are a business we can set you up with an account so you can order quickly and easily from our website and have 30 days to pay the invoice. 

We can even add your corporate branding to our boxes and gift cards.  Our corporate customers order our gift packages (either from our ready-to-go gift packages or bespoke packages) for their own employees - from one off gifts such as new baby, get well soon or ‘congratulations ’ gifts or to whole departments as an appreciative gesture.  

Some of our corporate customers use IzzyBee gifts to let their customers know they really value them. From estate agencies, travel agencies, recruitment agencies, taxi firms, holiday letting agencies, accountants, hotels and media companies, we send gift packages to their clients -often with their own branding- as delightfully unexpected gifts, thank you gifts, welcome gifts, gifts for events such as conferences, or even sorry-we-got-it-wrong gifts. We can tailor packages to suit your requirements and budgets from as little as £10 to several hundred pounds. 

We have also produced boxes as wedding favours.

Do you offer discounts?

We often run special promotions and discount codes from time to time.  Follow us on Instagram or Facebook, or subscribe to our newsletter to find out about our promotions.

What is so special about IzzyBee’s gifts?

Send an IzzyBee gift package you can be sure that you have selected high quality, original gifts made in the UK by local artisans with a passion for planet friendly products, practices and packaging.

We search out, sniff, taste, rub and rigorously test products from all 4 corners of the UK but only the very best gifts make it onto our website.

We look carefully at the ingredients and materials our suppliers use in their products and packaging and favour those that use ethical, healthier (eg free of nasties such as parabens, sulphates, Palm-oil etc) planet - friendly options with recyclable packaging wherever possible. 

By selecting UK made goods, not only are we supporting small local businesses and cutting down on the miles our gifts have travelled, we have found that the passion, innovation and extremely high standards of each of our suppliers is very much reflected in the quality of their goods. 

Selecting the right gifts is just part of an IzzyBee gift package though- we put just as much care and detail into beautifully presenting the gift, at the same time being mindful to use planet-friendly options. Often the most important part of the gift is the message to the recipient. Although it takes us longer, we like to handwrite your gift message on the gift card for a personal touch. There’s no limit to the number of words - feel free to let your sentiments flow! The gift card is a decent A6 size, not a tiny tag-sized card. We are very proud of the exclusively designed range of cards so you can select one that really says it from: ‘Hooray’, ‘Congratulations’ ‘Something to Brighten Your Day’ ‘LOVE’ ‘You are FAB’ ‘XOXO’ ‘Pretty Awesome’ ‘Thinking of You’ ‘Hot Mama’ ‘Under the Weather’ ‘Adventure Awaits’ ‘Thank You’ ‘Mum’ and more!
