Packaging

Protecting your Deakin & Francis items for delivery to you is important to us. Our packaging is cardboard and paper, this means it is all recyclable.

Our packaging includes an outer box to protect the Deakin & Francis luxury gift box.Inside the gift box, your items are in their individual storage boxes and are secured in tissue paper. We designed the Deakin & Francis luxury gift box as a multi-purpose carton that holds several items together, as well as being ideal for gifts. We thought for a long time about sourcing lots of different sizes of packaging but decided to make it more sustainable, we would have a ‘one size protects all’. The gift box looks fabulous when it contains lots of goodies. The Deakin & Francis luxury gift box can be reused – it is perfect to store keepsakes (such as birthday cards or other mementos) and the tissue paper can be re-used to keep purses and bags in good shape.

If you prefer minimal packaging, please let us know in the note field when you place your order and we will remove the gift box.
