Shipping Estimator (next day delivery)How Much Is Delivery?

You can see the estimated cost of delivering your order on the shopping cart page at https://www.aquarterof.co.uk/checkout/cart. (see screenshot to the right of this text)

You will also be notified of the delivery costs on the shipping page before you submit your credit card details.  It is here that you can also select your desired shipping method.

Delivery outside the EU may be subject to local import taxes, which are your responsibility where they apply. If so, the shipping company should contact you by telephone once your products are in customs to let you know the charge due or else you should consult your local customs office. Unfortunately we cannot advise you what these charges will be and AQuarterOf.co.uk is not responsible for them.

How Can We Send Your Order - UK Orders

UK orders are despatched either by Royal Mail 24 or 48 (previously known as 1st or 2nd Class) or by FedEx Courier. Our couriers require a signature and operate between 9am and 5pm on weekdays only, so please specify an address where someone will be able to sign for your products between these hours.

We will make every effort to deliver within the time stated on AQuarterOf.co.uk but we will not be liable for any loss caused to you by late delivery.

If the products are not delivered within the estimated delivery time which we quote, please contact us by telephone or email and we will try and ensure that you receive your order, as quickly as possible, or if you wish you may cancel your order and we will refund the money you have paid. Please note that while items sent by Royal Mail usually arrive within 2-3 days, Royal Mail stipulate that only items still not delivered after 15 working days can be officially classified as lost.

How Can We Send Your Order - International Orders

We send international orders either by Airmail (for small orders under 2kg) or FedEx International Courier.
 

Please order from AQuarterOf.co.uk with enough lead-time to prevent any loss or disappointment resulting from the delivery time as AQuarterOf.co.uk cannot be responsible for this.

Sweets Delivery
When you hear the rattle of your letterbox or the tap-tap of a postman at your door, what’s your first reaction? Do you feel a thrill of excitement at what could be coming, or do you groan at the thought of an official letter requiring you to fill in forms or pay a bill? When we’re kids, the arrival of the postman with an unexpected package is a major highlight of the day, but unfortunately, for many adults, it’s a bad sign. However, it doesn’t have to be! We think the arrival of the post should be greeted with immense enthusiasm and excitement whatever age you are, and that’s what sweet box delivery can do.
 
Have you ever been gifted sweets in the mail? The thrill of receiving a big box, the rustle of the cardboard and the packaging, the eager unveiling of the treats within – it’s a wonderful experience, loved by adults and kids. Sweet shop delivery services are making the world just a bit stickier and sweeter, one box at a time, and if you haven’t ever thought of jumping on the sweet treats delivery bandwagon – maybe you should!
 
One of the best things about a sweet box delivery service is that there are so many options. After all, buying for someone can be tricky; you have to work out exactly what they like, and then order it. If it’s something to wear, the size might be wrong, or the colour, or the shape. If it’s something to do, it might not interest them. If it’s something to decorate with, they might just dislike it. Sweets, though, everyone can get behind, which is why sweets delivery is such a perfect present. There’s so much excitement in getting a big box of luxury treats all to yourself, hand-delivered to your door. It doesn’t even have to be a special occasion; sweet treats delivery can be a great way to let someone know you’re thinking about them, “just because!”
 
Another great thing about this gift option: many places offer next day delivery sweets. This is ideal if you’ve accidentally slipped up and forgotten a special someone’s birthday, or perhaps a wedding anniversary. They won’t suspect a thing if they find a large box of candy on the doorstep, especially if it contains some of their old favourite retro sweets. A little trip down memory lane could be a great way to hide that your own memory slipped up a bit, and next day delivery sweets is perfect for that!
 
So what can you expect from a sweet box delivery? Well, it might sound a bit vague, but honestly, almost anything – as long as it’s sweet! Most sweets delivery services include options that cover the majority of their range, and you may even be able to pick a theme by decade, perhaps celebrating the time period in which a loved one was born. What nicer way to remind them of their childhood than by offering them a selection of the goodies they would have known and loved at that time? This is also a great way to help people rediscover forgotten gems, gifting them that rare burst of nostalgia which so many of us treasure above everything else. You may find your recipient thought their favourite sweet had been discontinued years ago, in which case you’ve gifted them something really special.
 
You can also choose boxes which focus more on chocolate, boxes which are all about liquorice love, boxes of romantic treats like Love Hearts and chocolate hearts (we’re looking at you, Valentine’s Day!), and a whole range of different sized boxes brimming with sugary goodness. No matter what treat you’re looking for, you’re bound to find it with a sweet shop delivery service! No hassle, no need to go on a hunt through hundreds of shops to find something meaningful (and honestly, how often does that even happen?). These boxes are loaded with history and fun, and they’re perfect no matter the occasion. After all, let’s face it; who doesn’t love celebrating with sugar?
 
There are so many different occasions in which you might want a sweets delivery, and they go beyond the obvious ones like birthdays and Christmas. Got kids leaving school? Most teachers are up to their ears in mugs and novelty gifts, but if anyone deserves a sweet treat at the end of the day, it’s our hard-working educators. Getting them a sweet hamper is a wonderful thank-you for all the work they do. If they don’t enjoy the sweets themselves, they may be able to use them as prizes, or split them between the class as a last day celebration.
 
Alternatively, if you’ve got a friend or loved one in hospital, dropping round with a big sweet shop delivery is a wonderful way to show them that you care. It will give them something to enjoy in the quiet, empty moments, and everyone knows that treats are a sure way to start feeling better (okay, so broccoli and spinach probably aren’t bad either, but that’s hardly gift material, is it?). You can make your own little sweets delivery service by turning up on the ward bearing the gift of sugar, and we’re positive it will be very appreciated.
 
Some sweet shop delivery services will even let you personalise your order, which is a wonderful way to tell someone special that you’re thinking about them, especially if you aren’t able to be there with them. Adding a photo of you, them, or something else significant can turn the sometimes temporary joy of sweets into something lasting and lovely, and really add to the thoughtfulness behind your gift. You could even make a yearly joke of restocking their personalised jar with all their favourites – what could make present-buying easier? If you’ve got kids, it’s also a lovely way to make sure everyone’s satisfied with their gift, and that they get equal amounts. That said, we take no responsibility for any sugar rushes which might occur as a result of a sweet box delivery service!
 
With next day delivery sweets and the amazing variety on offer, buying a retro hamper, a big jar of their favourites, or a mixed box of sweets is the ideal way to do gift shopping. Your recipient’s likely to feel they have hit a jackpot, and you can give this gift again and again – it never gets boring, it won’t clutter the place up, and it won’t add to the massive piles of stuff which everyone’s accumulating.
 
Sweet boxes don’t have to be reserved for the special moments, and they don’t have to be huge. You might decide you want to make a sweet box delivery part of your weekly routine, perhaps as a little Saturday night treat for you and the kids – or for yourself and your partner. Bringing a bit of sparkle to the everyday is what makes life magic, and traditions like this remind us to take time out for ourselves, and to treasure the small, precious moments. Curling up on the sofa with your loved ones, or by yourself with a good book, a hot drink, and a little hamper to tuck into, is a wonderful way to celebrate the joy of the everyday, and we think it’s that joy which keeps us all going and makes the world beautiful. Let’s make the arrival of the postman exciting again by sending the gift of sugar to each other!
