Delivery

The Little Gift Loft dispatch your order from Melbourne and we offer a range of delivery options, including same-day delivery across Melbourne metro, or standard shipping and express shipping Australia wide.

We aim to dispatch your gift the next business day after you place an order. During peak seasons like Mother's Day, Father's Day and Christmas, it can take us a little longer.

The cost and speed of delivery will vary depending on the delivery address and type of delivery option you choose during the ordering process. These costs and times are subject to change and will be updated on our website as the changes occur.

Our delivery hours are between 9AM and 5PM during weekdays (excluding public holidays observed in Melbourne). We can't guarantee a specific time of day for delivery. 

 

Third-party delivery services

We use reputable third-party couriers to deliver gifts across Australia, including but not limited to Australia Post, Couriers Please, Go People, Sherpa. Due to our reliance on third-party courier services, we can't be held responsible for delays during transit. Whilst every care is taken to ensure accurate and safe delivery, we cannot guarantee unforeseen circumstances, such as damage or delay that results in a gift not arriving at a certain time or place.

Once a gift has been delivered to a concierge or front desk at the address specified we cannot be held responsible for the gift getting to the recipient. In regards to hospital deliveries, if the patient has been discharged the gift will be returned to us and a re-delivery fee will apply. In regards to same day deliveries, if there is no one there to receive the gift (and there is no safe place to leave it) the gift will be returned to us and a re-delivery fee will apply.

In the event of a delay or delivery issue, we will work with you and do our best to help in resolving any issues as a result of a third-party delivery issue.

 

Units and apartment buildings

Sometimes our third-party delivery partners encounter problems with delivering gifts to units, apartment and office buildings which may result in your gifts arriving late, going missing, or being returned to us.

If gifts are being delivered to a unit, apartment or office building you are responsible for ensuring that the recipient will be available on the day to receive the gift. If there is no one at the recipient's address and our delivery partner can't gain access to the building, or leave the gift in a safe place, your gift will be classified as ‘undeliverable’ (see Undeliverable items below for more details).

 

Incorrect and incomplete addresses

You are responsible for supplying us with the correct and complete recipient details and address for delivery. If you provide us with an incorrect or incomplete address, we can't be held responsible.

If you’ve made a mistake or given us incorrect or incomplete information your gift will be classified as ‘undeliverable’ (see Undeliverable items below for more details).

 

Undeliverable items

Your gift is considered undeliverable if (a) the recipient’s address is incomplete, incorrect, or cannot be located, (b) there is no one at the recipient's address to receive the gift and there is nowhere safe to leave the gift  (c) the delivery is refused by the recipient.

Undeliverable gifts will either be re-directed to a local post office for collection by the intended recipient or returned to The Little Gift Loft where the customer will be liable for all charges and fees incurred in returning, storing, or disposing of an undeliverable gift.

When a gift is returned to us, we will try our best to rectify the situation and re-deliver the gift. However, you will be liable for any additional delivery charge as well as a product replacement fee for any perishable items, that need to be replenished.

When a gift is re-directed to a local post office a calling card will be left at the recipient’s address to inform them of their local collection point. Due to the perishable nature of some of our products, it is strongly advised that recipients collect their gift within 24 hours from the collection point indicated on the calling card. We can't be held responsible for delays in the collection and pick-up of gifts and aren't liable for the quality and condition of perishable goods, which have not been collected within a 24 hours from the attempted delivery.

 

Substitution and Availability

The Little Gift Loft attempt to dispatch all orders in compliance with product descriptions on our website. However, from time to time, certain products may not be available. We reserve the right to substitute products with alternative varieties when necessary, and we will always take care to ensure substitutions and alterations are similar in quality and value to the product item described on our website. 

 

Days of operation

We don't operate on weekends or public holidays in Victoria, so orders will not be dispatched or delivered on those days. If you place an order on the days we're not in operation, then we will process your order (or delivery request) on the next business day. 

 

Warranties, refunds, and cancellations

If you cancel, change your mind, or provide incomplete or incorrect delivery information, we’re unable to offer you a refund.
