How are you all feeling about lockdown after a couple of weeks now?
We are certainly living through an unprecedented time of national crisis and we are all very grateful for our NHS, carers, emergency, military and other essential workers who are ensuring that we can get food, stay safe and that our nation can continue to function to the best of its ability right now.
As a military family, we are very much aware of the sacrifices needed by all of our society at this time, and we know that we will all be stronger at the end of this.
In the meantime, we are getting requests from people about gifting. Do we send gifts out directly from Five Six Blue Boutique? Yes we do. It may be a little thing during the enormity of what is going on right now, but birthdays, Easter and anniversaries are still special days, and need to be celebrated in whatever way we can.
How can we help you?
Let's start with the practical stuff:
- Choose a gift for your special person. Have a look at our gift ideas here. You can filter these by brand, size, colour, price and newness to help narrow down your choice.
- Once you've decided then simply go to Checkout and add your details into the Billing Address (on left of screenshot).
- Ensure that you tick the 'Deliver to a Different Address?' tick box at the top of the right hand column.
- In the 'Order Notes' box tell us it's a gift and enter any message that you want us to print out and put in a card for you, eg 'Happy Birthday Sarah, lots of love from Mum and Dad xxxx'
- Pay for your order either through Stripe with credit card or via PayPal.
- We never send out the goods in the warehouse packaging - it's grim! Instead, we will ensure that we wrap your order with special care in our beautifully stylish branded tissue paper and wrapping paper (if you would like wrapping paper as well just tell us in the order notes).
- Your message will be printed off and added to a pretty card and popped in a lovely bag or box to send out to your loved one. We will leave the tags on but will cover the price if it is visible (some of our brands do pre-printed priced labels). We will not enclose any invoice either - just the packing slip (no prices shown).
- Feel the joy that your loved ones gift is sorted out by an independent business owner who cares as much as you do. It's as easy as that.
