A Swift and Efficient Delivery Service
We pride ourselves in our swift and efficient delivery of Christening gifts and Baptism gifts to buyers throughout the world. Our free delivery service is included in the price of delivery to UK addresses, whilst we offer TAX REFUNDS on deliveries to addresses in the USA & OVERSEAS.
Delivery to UK addresses is free and included in the price of your gift.
Where possible we aim to dispatch same-day via Royal Mail's First Class Recorded service.
If your gift is in stock and we receive your order by 9am we will dispatch your order by Royal Mail First Class Recorded that day (excluding Saturdays & Sundays).
In addition, over 90% of orders received between 9am and 12 noon are dispatched same day (excluding Saturdays & Sundays) by Royal Mail's First Class Recorded service.
Royal Mail's First Class service however DOES NOT GUARANTEE next day delivery - if your order is urgent we recommend using "Next Day" delivery.
GUARANTEED NEXT DAY & SATURDAY DELIVERY
If you require NEXT DAY Delivery, please select this service in the Shopping Cart - Shipping Method.
Next Day orders are dispatched via Royal Mail Special Delivery with delivery guaranteed by 1pm Next Day. Please check that you place your order by 12 noon to ensure your next day delivery is dispatched in time. After 12 noon please call 01926 624690 and we should be able to rush a purchase through for you manually up to around 1pm.
Royal Mail Special Delivery Next Day costs £7.50 for deliveries Monday to Friday and £10.50 for deliveries on Saturday. Orders placed on Saturday and Sunday with Special Delivery are dispatched on Monday for delivery on Tuesday.
Please do call us if you need your Christening gift urgently and we will do our utmost to help. 01926 624690.

If there is nobody at your delivery address to sign for your parcel, the postman will leave you a note and the parcel will be held for collection at your local post office or sorting office. The parcel will be held for seven days before being returned to us.

Customers from outside the European Union will receive a refund of the UK Value Added Tax (VAT) – UK VAT is currently 20%
All prices displayed on this site include VAT so, in a nutshell … after your refund, you will usually end up being charged less than the price shown on this website. This does not include bibles which are not subject to tax.
Your refund will be automatically deducted at checkout.
We do however charge from £9.50 for delivery outside Europe. In the majority of cases this is a lot less than the value of your refund.

Simply enter the alternative delivery address in the section provided at check-out. There is also a gift wrap and message option should you wish to personalise your gift. The VAT tax refund is not available for deliveries within the UK.
CUSTOMS & IMPORT TARIFF
Your home customs may require you to pay duty on some high value gifts purchased from CHRISTENINGsilver.com. We are unable to identify the exact tariff for each country and each item, but we believe that in the majority of cases your VAT tax refund will cover any duty charged.
We really do try our best to provide an exceptional service to overseas customers. Do contact us if you have any queries or problems, but please be patient if we fail to respond immediately – with the time difference we may be tucked up in bed … you will receive an immediate response at the start of our business day.
The VAT refund is only available for orders that are exported outside the UK
