Sending as a Gift
Our handmade meals make a wonderful gift to suit a variety of occasions: birthdays, Mother's Day (or Father's Day), moving house, get well soon, or just to let someone know you're thinking of them. They are perfect for anyone who loves good food, but doesn't have either the time or the energy, or perhaps the inclination, to cook for themselves.
Food Gift Boxes
As well as our established range of Gift Boxes, you can design your own by simply choosing Gift Box - Design Your Own, and then filling it with whichever meals you think the recipient would like from our menu and adding a personal message at the checkout. We'll do the rest. As the meals are perishable, we'll need a contact number for the recipient, but don't worry, we'll be discreet so as not to spoil the surprise. And naturally no invoice is included with our gift boxes.
Alternatively, our Gift Vouchers allow recipients to choose the meals for themselves.
They are available in denominations of £48.95 ~ £58.95 ~ £67.50 (to include the £8.95/£7.50 food delivery charge with a £40 ~ £50 ~ £60 food Gift Voucher), and ~ £105 (for a £100 Gift Voucher plus £5 delivery). The vouchers can be emailed to the recipient or sent by post (£1.50 delivery charge applies). For emailed gift vouchers, please supply the recipient's email address if you want us to email it to them directly, or your own if you want to pass the voucher on to them yourself.
Please click here to Buy a Gift Voucher. As we generate our Gift Vouchers individually, in order to be able to personalise them, it won't arrive the minute you order it, but we will get it to you within an hour or two.
A couple of things to note...
1. When ordering gift meal boxes, please ensure you give a contact number for the recipient. As the delivery is perishable, it's important that we can contact the recipient if necessary on the delivery day. If we do need to contact them, we will be suitably discreet so as not to spoil any surprise. We will ONLY use this contact number for the delivery, if necessary, and never for any marketing purposes.
2. When sending a gift, it is vital you let us know where the box can be safely left if there is no reply (in shed, behind gate etc) as, because it is perishable, the box cannot be returned to the depot, and must be left. If you cannot supply this information, we recommend you send the box in voucher form instead.
3. Please let the recipient know to expect a delivery on the agreed day. Chef on Board cannot be held responsible for a recipient not finding a delivery that has been left for them at their property because they were not expecting it: e.g. because they were away, etc, nor if the recipient requests a re-arranged delivery on the day of delivery.
4. Please do not order multiple Gift Vouchers or Gift Vouchers and meals together in one order online, as separate delivery charges need to be applied at the checkout, and we will not be able to dispatch. If you'd like to do this, please order each Gift Voucher separately online or call us on 01981 250494 and we can take your order over the phone. Many thanks.
