Q: How much is my Hamper to deliver?

Q: Do I pay two shipping charges for two gifts to the same address?
A: Some of the hampers are too large to be packed in one outer and therefore have to be shipped as separate items. However some gifts are small enough to pack 5 in the one outer and therefore will only incur one shipping charge.
