Gift Wrapping


Don’t be later for the important dates! We get increasingly busy during times leading up to special occasions such as Easter, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day and Christmas.  There is a fine balance between catering for last minute orders and having items arrive late the special day.

As much as we don’t like to disappoint you, our cherished customers. There comes a point where we need to close orders. This is approximately 10 business days before the occasion and a bit longer for Xmas. This may seem long, but here at Happily Handcrafted we try to be realistic about the time it takes to expertly craft your order.


We don’t want to rush the process so that we can ensure thehighest quality and give attention to every step of the process.


We also need to take into account our postage partners. Once your item leaves our studio, it’s in the hands of the postal system. As much as we partner with only the best of couriers, sometimes thing just don’t go to plan. Our cut-off dates ensure that if your order becomes lost or is damaged in transit, we still have time to replace it for you.

Happily Handcrafted a small family run business and we take pride in our customer service. We know that you, our customers are the reason we have a thriving business. Every single order is truly appreciated and lovling handcrafted. It is for this reason that sometimes we have to say, “we would love to create your request, but we can’t”. To ensure that you are not one of these customers, please order early.

Another great reason to order early is that we quite often sell out of popular items. We try estimate and cater for our growing business however, sometimes trends catch us off guard.
