Premium Air-Express Delivery (1-2 Business Days)
We also offer Premium Air-Express Delivery for only $14.95 per hamper Australia wide. Please note:
- For express delivery, orders must be placed before 10.00am (EST) so they can be dispatched on the day.
- We cannot guarantee next day delivery. We dispatch all hampers on the day of the order and almost always the hampers are delivered on the next business day.
- Deliveries may take longer if they are going to remote destinations, or during the Christmas peak period.
For Bulk Orders above $1,000.00 going to a single destination, in addition to Free Delivery, we offer a 10% Bulk Order Discount. This is automatically calculated on the shopping cart when you place an order above $1,000.00. Please note:
- For the Bulk Order Discount to apply, all the hampers must be going to a single destination and recipient.
- If your order is over $1,000.00 and the hampers are going to different destinations, then the discount does not apply. This is because the delivery and administration costs will be too high for us to absorb if we also provided the bulk order discount.

Australian Gourmet Gifts deliver hampers Australia wide, irrespective of how remote the location. We take great care in ensuring that hampers arrive safe and undamaged, by using more than adequate packaging, and selecting the most reputable and reliable freight and courier companies.

Australian Gourmet Gifts conscientiously work towards the best possible delivery service for our customers.
Important Information on the Delivery of Hampers
Deliveries to residential addresses are sent by contracted courier companies. If the recipient of the Gift Hamper is not home, and there is no safe place to leave the hamper, then the hamper will be directed to the nearest post office for collection. A collection card will be left at the recipients address with all the information. This way, in addition to the hampers being directed to a safe place, there are no additional re-direction costs.
We do not guarantee next day delivery on the Premium Air-Express Delivery Option. We dispatch all hampers on the day of the order and almost always the hampers are delivered on the next business day. However, deliveries to really remote destinations may take an extra day or two. Also, during peak times there may be some additional delays which are attributable to a number of factors that are totally out of our control, such as delays by our delivery companies.
Our delivery companies usually deliver Monday to Friday 9.00am – 5.00pm, Australia Wide. They do not deliver on weekends and they do not accept specified time deliveries (eg. deliver at 10.30 am).
Australian Gourmet Gifts is not responsible for an incorrect address provided, or if the recipient no longer resides at the stated address. However, we are always more than willing to assist our customers in resolving such unfortunate situations.
Australian Gourmet Gifts Hampers are safely packaged in a very durable cardboard outer box with heavy duty poly foam to ensure the hampers arrive safe and un-damaged. In addition, bulk orders are usually delivered on Pallets making it easier for our corporate customers to manage upon receipt.

Please note, hampers returned back to Australian Gourmet Gifts due to an incorrect/incomplete address or delivery rejection by the recipient, are not eligible for a refund or re-delivery.
