  1. How do I add a message to my gift hamper?
    There is a ‘special instructions for seller’ box in your cart where you can add a short message. It will be added to a gift card and sent with your hamper. If nothing is mentioned, we add a 'To' & 'From' if the billing and shipping address is different and you've ordered a gift.

    In case you've forgotten to add a message, drop us an email on help@theogurmetbox.in with your order number. We'll add your message if the order hasn't been dispatched. 
  1. How do I customize a box?
    If you're looking to customize a gift box, click on the ‘Make Your Own Box’ Tab on the main menu. You will be able to see the boxes we have and an approximate number of products they fit. Read the instructions and choose a box you like, add it to the cart. Then add the products you would like to send to your cart and checkout. We will turn it into a gift.

    In case the number of products is more than the recommended or do not fit, the extra products will be packed loosely and sent in the same carton.
  1. Why can’t I order more than 2 boxes?
    We charge only Rs. 150 as a standard shipping fee per order and our gift boxes are bulky, extra boxes incur a higher shipping fee so they need to be ordered separately.
  1. Can I order just the empty boxes?
    No, our boxes are available as hampers or to make you own gift box with the products available on our website. Any order placed for just empty gift boxes will be cancelled and refunded.
  1. What if I need multiple hampers delivered to different people?
    You can place separate orders for each person or use our multi ship tool - here's a guide. If your list is more than 10 people, you can drop us an email with the hamper you’re interested in and we can take the order offline and send it to each person, however the delivery charge will be applicable per location.

Express shipping is available for Gourmet gifts curated by The Gourmet Box at an additional charge and it usually ensures delivery within 2-4 working days.

    There might be delays in order delivery during the festive season due to heavy loads with our logistics partners.

    We charge a flat fee of Rs. 150/- per order for standard delivery across India. Express shipping for gourmet gifts is available at Rs. 300/- per gift.

  2. How do I track my order?
    Once your order is dispatched, you will get an automated email with the tracking number. You can click on it to track your package.

  3. Do I need to give the recipients number if I am sending a gift?
    If you are sending a gift, please make sure you add separate billing and shipping addresses and phone numbers for seamless delivery. 
    For people ordering outside India, you must provide a valid Indian phone number for the gift to be delivered to the recipient. Not doing so will lead to failure to deliver.

    Prepaid orders sometimes require OTP verification on delivery.

    Our delivery partners attempt to deliver the package 2-3 times. They usually call the number provided if no one answers the door. Incase they cannot reach the recipient after multiple attempts, the package is returned to us. We can re-send it, however if you wish to cancel it, we can issue you a store credit minus the shipping fee.

  2. Do you Provide Cash On Delivery Services?
    Cash on Delivery is available for orders upto Rs. 2000 only.

  1. Can I order a gift with ‘Cash On Delivery’?
    If you are ordering the gifts to yourself you can, however if you wish to send them to the recipient directly, you cannot since the cash can only be collected from the delivery address.
