Returns & Refunds   

 

Flowers

Due to the perishable nature of all flower deliveries, any complaints and refunds will be dealt with on a case by case basis and will be at our discretion. 


Please note, flowers may only be replaced/refunded if the complaint is made within 7 days of receipt.  This may be made by telephone or email. We are not liable for any complaint made outside this time. If the flowers we delivered are not what you ordered or are damaged or defective, or the delivery is of an incorrect quantity, we shall bear no liability to you unless you notify us of the problem within 48 hours of the delivery. Please note the Distance Selling Regulations do not apply to flowers and plants due to the nature of perishable goods, but do apply to other gifts we sell. 

 

 If for whatever reason we deliver the wrong bouquet we will send out the correct bouquet to your recipient. We may require a photo to clarify which flowers were delivered purely for our own records. This excludes bouquets that have had blooms replaced due to them not being available or are out of season as they will be replaced by blooms/flowers of an equal or greater value.


Please note that free items are subject to availability at the time of purchase.


 The burden is with the purchaser to inform the recipient of the delivery of flowers. If the flowers are left in a safe place at the discretion of the courier we are not liable thereafter for the safe receipt of the goods. If, following a second delivery attempt, we are still unable to deliver to the recipient, through no fault of our own; we are regrettably unable to offer a refund or complimentary re-delivery. We will endeavour to redeliver if goods are returned to us by the courier.

If we cannot get in contact with the recipient or the customer, through no fault of our own or the customer does not contact us, we cannot be held responsible for non-delivery. Where Debenhams Flowers has tried all possible methods to fulfil the order, regrettably a refund cannot be given.

 

Debenhams Flowers are not responsible for any order where the recipient refuses to accept the item. Debenhams Flowers will not issue refunds to any customer where the recipient, for whatever reason, will not accept the item or refuses delivery.

 For items that are returned, the consumer will bear the costs for the return of that item. We regret that we cannot refund return postage costs.

 In the event of small errors in the order such as the wrong message card we do not offer a full refund as the recipient has received the flowers which are the value of the order.

 

 In the case of a missing gift (such as a bear, box of chocolates, vase, bottle of wine, champagne or cake etc) we will refund the amount paid for the omitted 'add on' item only.

 

If the bouquet delivered is the incorrect size, we will refund the difference between the size received and the size ordered only.

 

If for whatever reason Debenhams Flowers are unable to fulfil your order we will refund the full amount to you or will redeliver the bouquet at a later date and upgrade it to an order of greater value free of charge.

 

Hampers

 

You are allowed a 7-day cooling off period from the date of delivery. This means that we will refund the total cost of the product and the delivery charges (including any out of area, named day or Saturday surcharges) to you in full, if you choose to cancel your order for any reason, provided that you comply with the below:

 

 

1.    You notify us of your cancellation in writing (email) to [email protected]  within 7 working days of delivery.

 

2.    The goods remain unused and component parts are unopened.

 

3.    You or the recipient retain and take reasonable care of the goods until collected by our carrier.

 

4.   You or the recipients are reasonable in making the goods available for collection by our carrier who will collect only during the daytime on working days.

 

5.    Refunds will be issued upon receipt of the item.


Please note that we are unable to reimburse the cost of returning an item to us under any circumstances, as we will arrange collection through our own carrier at no cost to you.

 

Exceptions:

 

In accordance with distance selling regulations, we regret that you may not cancel or return:

1.    Fresh food gifts or hampers (including cheese, meat or fish)

2.    Large hampers containing fresh food such as Smoked Salmon

3.    Personalised and branded goods

 

4.    Bespoke hampers. Please note that from the time of receiving your written order we will purchase component parts relating to your hamper and we regret that these orders cannot be cancelled. This applies to large corporate orders.

 

Delivery Delays:


Unfortunately, Debenhams Flowers cannot take responsibility for late delivery of any hampers due to:

1. Adverse weather conditions

2. Incomplete or incorrect delivery addresses

3. Any other causes beyond our reasonable control

 

Cheese and Fresh Food:


 Cheese gifts and fresh food hampers must be signed for upon delivery. Please ensure that your recipient will be available to receive the goods on the chosen delivery date.

 All fresh food needs to be opened and refrigerated within 48 hours of despatch to ensure that the contents remain safe to consume.

 We regret that for food safety fresh food cannot be despatched for Monday delivery.

 We do not send fresh food items to Highlands, Islands or Overseas addresses as we cannot guarantee to our satisfaction that they will remain cold during the longer travel times.

 We are unable to offer product or delivery refunds for failed fresh food deliveries that are due to the recipient not being at home or due to us having been provided with an incorrect delivery address.

 

Allergens:

 - The majority of our hampers contain chocolate and/or cheese which will not be suitable for those with an intolerance to dairy goods.

 - All of our hampers are packed in an environment where nuts are packed which may not be suitable for those with a nut allergy.

 - Some products such as mince pies will contain traces of alcohol.

 - Some products do contain animal fats so would not be suitable for vegetarians/vegans.

 - Diabetics are encouraged to eat a balanced diet and not specific “diabetic” foods so our hampers would be perfect for them to eat in moderation.

As our hampers are designed to 'treat' clients, the contents are varied. There will be items that are suitable for all; such as delicious preserves, tea, coffee, savoury and sweet treats, which we hope that all will be enjoyed.


Damaged or defective hampers:

If your recipient has received a damaged or defective item then we guarantee to replace the item as long as:

1. You telephone us on 0844 995 0380 (Calls to this number will cost 7p per minute plus your phone company's access charge) or email [email protected] within 48 hours of delivery of the hamper including a photograph of the damaged item in your email.

2. If we request to see the hamper we will organise the collection at our cost, but the recipient is responsible for making the hamper available for collection between Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm (except Bank Holidays)

3. If required we will refund the cost of the hamper in full or we will replace the hamper. If the same hamper is not available we will replace with a hamper of equal or higher value.

4. If you arrange for us to collect an item from you or your recipient which, after being assessed by our hamper quality control department is not deemed to be damaged or defective, please note that we will deduct the cost of collection from your refund.

Please note:

You will not be charged for the collection of your item nor for the delivery of a replacement hamper.

Wines:

You may cancel and return your order up to and including 14 calendar days after the day on which you have received your order. Please contact our customer services team and we will arrange to collect (free of charge) the unwanted goods and reimburse the appropriate sum paid including delivery costs within 14 calendar days after the day we receive the goods back provided all the bottles are unopened and intact and the wine is in its original packaging.

Refunds will be made by the same payment method you originally used to make payment.

If the wine is faulty

If the wine is corked, oxidised or appears otherwise out of condition, provided it is still within the recommended drink date and has been stored in suitable conditions, we will arrange to replace the faulty bottle(s) or offer a refund as appropriate. We reserve the right to collect faulty bottles for inspection so please retain them where possible.

Damaged items

If your recipient has received a damaged or defective item then we guarantee to replace the item as long as:

You telephone us on 0844 995 0380 (Calls to this number will cost 7p per minute plus your phone company's access charge) or email [email protected] within 48 hours of delivery including a photograph of the damaged item in your email.

 

Cancellation By Us: 

We reserve the right to cancel the contract between us if:

- we have insufficient stock to deliver the products you have ordered; or

- the price or description of the products was listed incorrectly due to a typographical error or an error in the pricing information received by us from our suppliers.

If we do cancel your contract we will notify you by email and refund any sum paid by you to your credit or debit card. We will not be obliged to offer any compensation for loss or disappointment suffered by you.

 

- We will make every effort to conform to product listings and in the event of non-availability, goods will be substituted with other item(s) of similar quality and value. Errors and omissions excepted. Colours of linings can vary and photographic props i.e. glasses are not included unless otherwise stated.

 

All orders are subject to availability, if a hamper is sold out then we will endeavour to contact the purchaser to agree an alternative hamper.
