Wine and champagne are the perfect gifts for the festive season.
We present our wine gifts as if we were giving them ourselves to our own friends. Each wine gift includes a Christmas card and you can add your own message in the wine gift message box at checkout.
Note that the Red/Gold giftboxes are only available from December 1 - for orders shipped prior to Dec 1 then we will use the same boxes but only in black!
Generally all Christmas wine gifts are despatched week beginning December 12. For orders received from December 9 then gifts will be despatched on Monday/ Tuesday December 19-20 for next day delivery.
You can PLAN AHEAD and purchase Christmas wine gifts now and advise “Week beginning Dec 12 or Week beginning Dec 19 at checkout.
OR create your own fine wine gift by selecting your own combination of wines and wine gift boxes. Choose any wine and simply add a gift box from the gift box page. BUT please note that this bespoke service is only available until November 30. From December 1 you can only select 1-3 bottle gifts from our standard gift selection.
Corporate Orders - we are always delighted to put together customised wine gift proposals for larger corporate customers, including special delivery rates for bulk online wine gift orders. See further details on our Christmas Ordering Guide page or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss. Corporate customers are welcome to order via email and send a spreadsheet with names/addresses/gift choices and a standard message for gift recipients. We will then contact you and invoice you via email.
Don’t forget our Gift Vouchers. We offer both hard copy and soft copy Gift Vouchers. Soft copy vouchers are available in any denomination from £15 and we can customize the voucher design for large corporate orders. Vouchers are valid for a year and are sent by email with your message. Click here for further details.
Finally please do bear in mind we send out around 10,000 gift orders during the 20 day period Dec 1-20. Every year we do ensure that every wine ordered from Dec 1-20 is despatched to arrive before Christmas. Unfortunately all of our focus is on ensuring that everything is sent and less on communicating updates to customers! Please be assured that we do take our duty of care to customers very seriously at Christmas time and work hard to ensure all deliveries are made in good time, even if sometimes we do not respond to customer requests for status updates.
