How do I mark something in my Shopping Basket as a gift?
Every item in your Shopping Basket has a checkbox marked "This will be a gift". If you tick this box you'll be given the option to choose your gift options during the checkout process.
If you mark an item as a gift you can add a personal touch by sending your item giftwrapped with a message, and there's no need to worry about the recipient finding out how much you've spent because it's not disclosed on the invoice.Back to top
How do I save something in my Shopping Basket for later?
Just click on the "Save for later" link that every item in your Shopping Basket has. This will move it to a "Saved for later" section and it won't go through to checkout with the other items in your basket. When you're ready to order the item, just click on "Move To Basket" to take it out of your "Saved For Later" list and move it back to the Shopping Basket.
Please remember that adding something to your Shopping Basket doesn't reserve that item for you, even if it's in the "Saved For Later" list. All product detail pages include an availability estimate which will include a warning if our stock of that item is getting low.Back to top
