UK Mainland Delivery
How do we get your order to you ?
We like to give you choice at Birdkids, so here's what we've got for you :
Good old Royal Mail, yup we use Royal Mail. Did you know, they’ve been around over 500 years ( honestly, Google it ). Why would we use anyone else ??
They’ve gone all high tech nowadays and have fancy tracked orders, which we take full advantage of, so every order we send out is fully tracked and can be signed for, so if you give us your email address and mobile number, you’ll get text and email updates of where your order is and when it's going to be delivered. So if you really want to, you can literally stand there waiting for the postman to arrive with your order. Of course, if you know you’re not going to be home, you can change your delivery to a more convenient day – see, we did say they’d gone all high tech !!
Parcelforce is another great option that we offer. Part of Royal Mail with the same high tech tracking of orders but if you want your order NOW, (well ok, we can't do right now ) but a super quick delivery, Parcelforce is the way to go. Order by 11am Monday to Friday and we'll despatch it straightaway and you'll get it next working day. Now, bear in mind, if you order on a Friday at 10.59am you'll get your order on Monday, but order on a Friday at 11.01am and you'll get your order on a Tuesday.
Now, you know, we're not Amazon, we're just a hubby and wife team, and we love to try and look after our customers, so if you do miss the deadlines, and you need something urgently, it's always worth a phone call or an email to ask if theres any way we can wave a magic wand and get your order to you somehow, you never know, we love to impress !
Yikes !!! If you need your order for a specific date i.e a birthday thats only a few days away, please do let us know in the comments section in the checkout. We know there's nothing more frustrating than waiting for an order despatch notification or an order to arrive when you're desperately waiting for it. But on the flip side, help us out, we try and send all of our orders out quickly, but at peak times we'll always prioritise an order if we know it's needed in a hurry !!

We offer a premium gift wrapping service including ribbons and bows and a gift card, ensuring all purchases are packaged beautifully, the perfect answer if you’d like a present delivered directly to someone or if you want your gifts to have that special touch.
We have a wide range of gift wraps that we use and try our best to use one for you to suit your purchase. So if you've bought a Unicorn themed gift, we'll try and find a unicorn themed gift wrap.
All of our gifts cards are hand written for that added personal touch.
Please Note : The cost for gift wrapping is £2.75 per item. If your order contains multiple items and only one is paid to be gift wrapped, only that single item will be gift wrapped.
