We pride ourselves on our gift service, ensuring that any items you choose as presents arrive when you need them to, and looking particularly lovely. You can search for gifts using our filters by occasion – whether the present is to a loved one, for a birthday, new baby etc. If you can’t decide which piece might be right, choose one of our hand-stamped gift tokens for any amount, which are redeemable with a special password of your choice which only your recipient will know (and possibly, understand!)
All items purchased, including tokens, are presented in our signature packaging – the Violet Velvet pouch inside our famous Violet and gold boxes. For an additional gift wrap fee, your present can arrive wrapped and sealed with our Violet Vintage wax stamp. Your personal message will be hand-written onto your choice of card, and can be sent either First Class recorded delivery or tracked for Next Day delivery.
When orders are placed, we send an email to the purchaser to let them know when the item is likely to arrive. We never email the gift recipient about an order, and always send invoices directly to the purchaser - no price details are ever sent out with presents.
If you have any queries about delivery, or need any help with choosing a present, please give us a call on 020 7624 9822.
