Important information:

All deliveries within the Illawarra (Gerroa to Austinmer) are delivered by our personal couriers. This means if your order is placed before 2pm, we can offer same day delivery.

Illawarra deliveries are made Monday to Friday between 8am and 7pm. Saturday deliveries are made between 8am and 5pm. We do not deliver on Sunday, unless it is Mother’s Day.

  • For deliveries outside of the Illawarra, orders can be sent in multiple ways:
    Flowers and fruit: These orders are sent through the Petals Network to a florist who is local to the delivery area. They will fulfil your order on our behalf. These deliveries are usually available Monday to Saturday. Please order by 12pm for same-day delivery outside of the Illawarra.
  • Hampers: These orders are dispatched from our store in Albion Park Rail. We use various courier companies to deliver these orders. The date you select is a guide only, and we will aim to have your parcel delivered by this date. We cannot guarantee that a parcel will arrive on a specific day. Courier companies usually operate from Monday to Friday only.
    If you order multiple items for delivery, an additional delivery fee may apply.

This may still apply even if the items are going to the same address, due to size and weight restrictions.

If you are ever unsure whether your order will be delivered within the estimated timeframe, give us a call on 1300 557 309 and we will be happy to help.

Please note that we may need to charge additional delivery when shipping multiple items to the same location. If this is the case, we will call you to confirm; otherwise, call us in advance and confirm everything over the phone straight away.

We do not deliver hampers or gift baskets to the Northern Territory. If you wish to send a gift to the NT it must be Fruit or Flowers.

At Baskets Because, we take care to ensure each and every gift arrives at the right location on time and in pristine condition. Using reputable couriers and well-established shipping processes, we endeavour to give you the best possible experience when buying from our online catalogue.

Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee against unforeseen circumstances such as theft, damage or late delivery. Baskets Because is unable to accept responsibility for any gift after it has left our premises. However, if your order is faulty or damaged when it arrives at its destination, we will do what we can to issue a replacement depending on the circumstances.

Please note that cancellation of an order will incur a 5% fee in order to cover bank charges for payment processing. We recommend carefully checking delivery times prior to ordering and contact us on 1300 557 309 or via if you are unsure.

For deliveries to business addresses, we ask that you include the business name so that the courier can locate the correct destination more easily.

Where possible, we also ask that you provide the recipient’s contact number so that we can contact them in case of an incorrect delivery address or no one answering the door.

Baskets Because is located in Wollongong, NSW, so gift basket delivery times throughout Australia will vary based on the destination. Local deliveries are processed Monday to Friday in addition to Sundays that fall on a special occasion such as Mother’s Day.

Chocolates, fruit and flowers can be ordered with arrangement for same day delivery through our Petals networks. All other gift boxes, baskets and hampers are shipped using Couriers Please, First Choice Couriers and Fastway Couriers.

We use a variety of courier services for all deliveries beyond Wollongong. Please note that these couriers only deliver from Monday to Friday, so delivery times are based on business days only.

See below for an estimated turnaround time for delivery to your destination. This is to be used as a guide only and not as a guarantee. To clarify further, please contact Katrina and the team on 1300 557 309.

The times listed below are an approximation only as estimated by our couriers. Note that Christmas and other busy times of year may add a day or two to the shipping times.
