Delivery Costs

We have moved to contactless deliveries until further notice.

Delivery charges start at $10 for Unley, and will then increase in price depending on the suburb you choose in Adelaide.

We realise the importance of getting your gift to the recipient on the date you require, so we use extremely reliable couriers.

Order by 1:30PM ACST MONDAY-FRIDAY for Same Day Delivery and Saturday before 12 noon!

Unfortunately, NO specific delivery time can be guaranteed as the couriers work on a route system and also due to factors outside The Gift Specialist's Control. i.e. Road Works. Christmas Rush etc....

We will attempt to deliver to businesses prior to 5:00pm, home addresses prior to 8pm and hospital's prior to 9pm. (excludes occasions i.e. Christmas, Mother's Day, Road Works, etc.)

Regardless of what the ''countdown timer'' may say or state - we are closed on all public holidays.
We will process orders, make deliveries and respond to email questions on the next available business day.
As we would like to have some time off...Thanks for your understanding. :-)

PO Boxes

Gifts Baskets or Hampers can NOT be delivered to PO Boxes. You must provide a physical business or home address.

Christmas Deliveries Dates

Plan ahead for holiday operating hours – and ship early when possible. Although TGS makes every effort to deliver holiday ground shipments with the same transit times as the rest of the year, we can't guarantee Country Ground shipments during the two weeks before Christmas due to unusually high volume.

A good rule of thumb is to allow seven business days for ground shipments during those last two weeks, particularly for long distances; your shipment may arrive sooner of course. ;-)

High Summer Temperatures

PLEASE be aware when sending Gift Baskets containing Lindt & Cadbury Chocolates on HIGH temperature days (i.e. over 30 degrees) they will MELT if left for any length of time. We request you find out when the recipient will be home and specify in "Special Instructions" at checkout ''Please deliver after 3 PM'' or '' Please deliver before 12 noon"

Lindt is a very delicate chocolate and melts easily. Most of our customers would prefer melted chocolate on their ice-cream. :-)

Deliveries Containing Alcohol

Gifts containing alcohol may be purchased online or in our store at 150 Unley Rd, Unley by persons over the age of 18. If delivered, these gifts must also be received by someone who is over the age of 18.

Deliveries containing alcohol cannot be left unattended at a premises. Someone over the age of 18 must be there to receive the gift. If possible we recommend sending to a business address.
