Our right to vary these terms:
We amend these Terms from time to time. Please look at the top of this page to see when these terms were last updated.

We may revise these terms as they apply to your order from time to time:
(a) to reflect changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements; and/or
(b) in the event that there is a material change to our relationship with our suppliers.
If we have to revise these terms as they apply to your order, we will contact you to give you reasonable advance notice of the changes and let you know how to cancel the contract if you are not happy with the changes. You may cancel either in respect of all the affected products or just the products you have yet to receive. If you opt to cancel, you will have to return (at our cost) any relevant products you have already received and we will arrange a full refund of the price you have paid, including any delivery charges.
About our products:
We will make every effort to accurately display and describe our products. Product colours, style, size and weight may vary from the display shown on electronic devices. Packaging may vary from one order to the next. Print files for items like mugs need to have a resolution of 300 DPI because prints are small and often detailed.
How you order from us:
To order a gift from us you are creating a contract between yourself and us. Simply add the items you desire to your cart, once finished view your cart and check your order is correct. If you're adding written content to a design (only applicable on our "personalisable mugs") then please insert this in the "add a note" text box, ensuring spelling is correct. Confirm your order by checking out via PayPal, Mastercard, visa or American express. You will then be asked to pay for your order in full. An order is only complete when your payment details have been submitted and authorised. When your payment has been authorised we will send you an Order Confirmation email with a unique order number for your reference and our reference. If you're adding an image to a design, please email us your image (ensuring the image quality is of 300 DPI or higher).
We will confirm our acceptance to you by sending you an e-mail that confirms that the Products have been dispatched (Dispatch Confirmation). The Contract between us will only be formed when we send you the Dispatch Confirmation.
All payments must be made in British Sterling (£). Postage and packing are charged at £3.10 in addition to the price of any goods and are clearly stated before the point of purchase with the exception of any promotional offers. Delivery of an order shall be completed when we deliver the products to the address you gave us and the Products will be your responsibility from that time. You own the Products once we have received payment in full, including all applicable delivery charges. You can pay for our products using a debit or credit card or via PayPal.
Please be accurate when entering the recipient’s address and be sure to include their postcode. If you enter the delivery address incorrectly we are not liable for gifts that go un-received. Our order process is up to 5 working days. All orders are dispatched within 24 working hours via Royal Mail 2nd class post at £3.10 per order for up to 5 mugs. We are not liable for delays due to extreme weather, postal strikes, bank holidays, peak times – anything out of our control. If you want to send more than 1 package to different address please enter these as separate orders.
Order amendments, cancellations, returns and refunds:
If you are a consumer, you have a legal right to cancel a contract within 14 days and claim a refund exercising your right to change your mind (Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013).

Advice about your legal right to cancel the contract is available from your local Citizens' Advice Bureau or Trading Standards office. Please review your order at every stage and at final confirmation. You are responsible for your orders accuracy.

All orders are subject to stock availability and we reserve the right to withdraw, amend or extend promotional offers at any time.
To the extent that the promotional offer in question involves the supply of a code which can be used to apply a discount if your order meets the terms of the promotional offer (Promotional Code), the following additional terms and conditions apply:
