Christmas 2018

With Christmas soon upon us delivery times will start take a bit longer. Currently they are as above but in the coming weeks they will be updated with realistic delivery times. Book Club deliveries in December may be sent earlier than the 4th in order to make sure it is there for Christmas. If you are worried about someone opening the package to early just pop a "Don't Open Until Christmas" sticker on it. If you have any queries don't hesitate to get in touch.

 Royal Mail

Regular RM24 packages are sent with Royal Mail and the tracking will show when it has been delivered. Special Delivery packages are sent with comprehensive tracking so you  follow it to your door.

International Tracking

We are constantly working to get the best service available and for some countries we have tracking available to your front door with local companies. Other countries are shipped with proof of delivery.

Please note at the moment we are changing our shipping companies to deliver a faster package that you may receive tracking information a few days after it has shipped.

United States of America Tracking vs No Tracking

For delivery to the USA we have two options for delivery. The first is our regular service where it is possible to track the parcel from England and onto the receiver. This service does requires someone to be at home to sign for the parcel or the postman should leave a note as to where and when to pick up the parcel.

The second option is for a service where there is no tracking, however there does not have to be anyone at home to sign for the parcel and the postman will leave it in a safe place. This second option is good for people sending the Blind Date with a Book as a gift to a person who is not expecting it. This service sends at exactly the same speed as the tracked service.

For more information please don't hesitate to get in touch.

My book is a gift please don't put a receipt inside! 

Because people love to send a Blind Date with a Book as a present we do not put an invoice in any of our packages as standard. All receipts are sent by email to the address of the person who purchased the gift.

Since my book is a gift can you put a note on it for me?

Of course we can. At the checkout there will be a place to out in note that you want written. The space for us to write the note is relatively small so keep it to about 8 words for it look nice.

What is International Proof of Delivery ? 

Once your order has been shipped by the delivery company you will get a tracking number that allows you to see when it has left our warehouse and when it arrives at the delivery address. This is handy if you are sending a Blind Date with a Book as a gift to somebody directly and want to make sure that they have received it.

Who do we ship with ? 

Within the UK we ship with our good friends at Royal Mail and with Swedish Post for international orders.
