Frequently Asked Questions
Can I nominate a different delivery address to send a gift directly to another recipient?
Yes you can! To do so, just ensure you select a different delivery address at checkout to your billing address.
Will the Recipient receive any notification of the gift?
No. We know the best part of gifts is the surprise of a lovely and thoughtful gift arriving. We don't send anything to the recipient other than the gift itself. Just make sure to enter your email and billing address. All we need about the recipient is their name and address for shipping.
Can I send a gift card to the recipient of my gift ?
Yes, Yellow Duck Baby have a beautiful range of unique, hand made gift cards which we include free with every order. Each product page has a field that you can write your message in, which will then be printed on the card and attached to the gift wrapping.
What payment methods do you accept?
We accept all common forms of online payment. Visa, Mastercard, PayPal, American Express, Apple Pay and AfterPay. We also accept Direct Deposit however, there are considerations you'll need to make outlined in the question below this.
How much longer will my order take to be delivered if I pay via Direct Deposit?
We do not commence work on any order until the funds are received into our bank account. Your financial institution's direct transfer terms and conditions will dictate when funds are released into our account via direct deposit. It can sometimes take up to 5 working days to clear funds, which will substantially delay the making and sending of your order.Please take this into consideration when paying via direct deposit.
PLEASE NOTE: This same situation applies if you are a Paypal customer and have a bank account (not credit card) linked to your Paypal account.

How long does it take from the time I order & pay for an item until the time I receive it?
Yellow Duck Baby's staff will do their best to ensure the fast and efficient processing of your order. Once submitted, your orders are checked for correct details then immediately passed on to our creation studio.Once your gift is finished and has past our thorough inspection, it is wrapped in the appropriate gift box, tied with coordinating ribbon and carefully packaged for safe delivery.

We almost always combine shipping soyou only pay postage on one item - provided they are all being delivered to the same address.

What Locations do you deliver items to?
We deliver to all locations Australia wide that have a postcode. This includes hospitals, military bases and remote locations. We can also deliver to overseas locations, but you'll need to call or email us to get the appropriate delivery cost.
Do you deliver to maternity Hospitals?
Yes we do, however it is not without it's challenges. Because we are based in Melbourne, and because of the limited amount of time new mums are in hospital, Yellow Duck Baby Gifts sends all deliveries to both Melbourne and interstate-based maternity hospitals by Express Post ONLY.
If you are wanting a gift delivered to a maternity ward,we ask that you confirm with the patient how long they will remain in hospital before completing the hospital delivery address details on checkout. We know that this is a bit of a pain, especially if you want your gift to be a surprise, but it's going to greatly reduce the chance your gift will be turned away from the ward. This does happen! We want your intended recipient to get their gift when you do, so the more information we have about the delivery ward the better.
Express Post parcel deliveries are generally next business day BUT if an order is placed late in the week, the parcel may not be delivered until early the following week when the patient has already checked out. Always confirm how long the patient will remain in hospital or nominate an alternative home delivery address to be sure your gift is received by the recipient.
Please call and speak to our staff if you are unsure of any details or you wish to arrange pick up from our Melbourne ware house to you can swan in with it yourself. New mums love that just as much as having it brought in by the nurses!
Do you use Australian made products in your gift range ?

Who designs your products ?
We do! Our dedicated little team loves coming up with new, fun hampers for Australia's babies. We enjoy what we do, and it shows. Each hamper is put together with a great deal of thought and care, completely by hand.
