Christmas Shopping Tips
With the holidays fast approaching here are some of our top tips for buying gifts from our site.
1. Buy Early!
No this isn't some marketing ploy, Christmas is the busiest time of year for online shopping.
Things will sell out, delays can happen, parcels get lost or broken in transit due to the higher volume of parcels.
The earlier we know about any issues in transit the sooner we can get them resolved for you.
2. Order notes and Gift messages
Use the Order Notes to write gift messages to your loved ones. We will include them in the order. We are also adding a Christmas Card add-on if you want something a little bit more festive.
3. Branded packaging
All our boxes have branding on them, if you want to keep your order secret let us know you want your box to be unbranded.
Please note, our stores address will show on the shipping label for returns and legal reasons we cannot remove this.
4. Open your entomology BEFORE gifting it.
Although we have a fantastic delivery rate with our entomology, (less than 1 in 100 orders being damaged in transit) accidents do happen. We advise that you unwrap any entomology frames prior to gifting so that we can resolve any issues and avoid dissapointment on Christmas Day
5. Last UK Shipping Dates
We will be shipping right up until 23rd December, but for Gauranteed Delivery please order before the 17th December.
All our parcels will be sent 1st Class Signed for, but as we get closer to Christmas this may not be a next day service.
6. International Orders
We are currently seeing international orders take up to 6 weeks to arrive. Unfortunately due to customs and international freight times we can't gaurantee any international orders in time for Christmas unless ordered before November 1st.
7. Black Friday
We will be offering a Black Friday sale but it's best not to wait until then, lots of items will most likely sell out prior to the sale and may not be restocked before Christmas. Buy early, but if you can pick up a bargain even better!
