Help and FAQS
We are committed to providing a high standard service for all our personalised goods, from ordering until you receive your goods.
We pride ourselves with being experts with personalised gifts and have defined an easy and quick way to offer personalisation for hundreds of products. On each product page you will find all the information you need to add your unique message to your gift. What's more if you have registered for a Boots Personalised Gifts account, once you have placed your order you will then be able to track the progress of your order until it is delivered.
How do I track my order?
You can track the process of your order in your account pages, if you click the Log In at the top of any page and click the ‘My account’ this will take you to the ‘My Account’ pages. From here you can click on ‘Order History’, once your order has been received by us the status will read ‘In Process’, when your order goes into production and can no longer be amended or cancelled the status will read ‘In Production’
Once your parcel has been despatched the status will change to ‘Despatched’. If you have placed your order on a tracked service (Next day delivery) your consignment number will also be featured and you will be able to track the delivery using this consignment number on http://www.dpd.co.uk/tracking/
Currently we are not able to deliver your parcels for store collection.
Where do you deliver to?
Virtually all addresses within the UK and to BFPO addresses.
Unfortunately, we cannot offer delivery to PO boxes, the Channel Islands or to the Republic Of Ireland at this time.
Can I ship to a different address?
When you place your order there will be an option to ship to a different address than your registered billing address.
If you want to ship directly to the gift recipient then simply put their address in the shipping address instead. With all orders we only include the item breakdown of the order, with no reference to prices that you may have paid. So you can rest easy that the recipient will have a beautiful gift without knowing the cost to yourself.
Can I collect from a local store?
Currently we are unable to offer the option to collect from a local Boots Store.

I haven't received all of my order
Check the confirmation e-mail to see if all items were ordered
Check the despatch email to see if items have been cancelled. Occasionally when we pack an order some of the items may not be available. We don't want to delay the rest of your order so we cancel the out of stock item and despatch the rest. We'll send you an email to update you. The paperwork for your order will show everything included and we only charge you for the items you have received.
Check the paperwork included in your parcel matches the items you have received.
Remove all packaging to confirm the item isn't hidden. Some orders may contain a cardboard wedge that other products will be underneath
However, if the item is definitely missing contact our Customer Care team. Please see the 'Contact us' section of the site for more details
