What is Click & Collect?
Put your mind at ease with our free Click & Collect service, which allows you to order an item online and then collect it at your nearest Menkind shop as early as the next day. Simply select the Click & Collect option at the online checkout and select your nearest store.
Click & Collect hands the power to you to decide when you want to collect your gifts. It also allows you to be in and out of the store in no time at all, so that you aren't spending any longer in busy shopping centers then you need to.
Your item will be held in-store for up to ten days, depending on space. Please note that Click & Collect orders must be paid for via credit/debit card (rather than PayPal or Amazon Pay). This is because we will only charge you for your item once our stores have confirmed that your order has been set aside.

Express Delivery - DHL and DPD offer various options for you to choose! Often they will automatically try to deliver your parcel the next day if no one is home. There are also options for you to select a neighbour's house, a safe place to leave it or even get it delivered to one of their local pick up points.
Standard Delivery - If you are not home Royal Mail will leave a calling card to tell you that it's been delivered to a neighbour or that its been taken back to your local sorting office. They usually hold it for around 7-10 days giving you plenty of time to pop in and pick it up.

How secure is this website?
Good question! We take security extremely seriously. Any pages that need you to enter personal details are secured using EVSSL certificates from Comodo, ensuring the strongest encryption. We also use Adyen during the checkout process. This means your card details are never stored on our website. We also screen all card payments for potentially fraudulent orders, which additionally collates information from thousands of retailers to identify potential fraud. Don't worry if you ever receive a call from us regarding your order: sometimes we just need to make extra sure that it's you.
How do I return an item that isn’t damaged or faulty?
It’s really important to us that you’re happy with anything you buy from Menkind so we will accept returns of unwanted items for up to 30 days from the date you receive the item. The process is simple and all you pay for is the postage costs of returning the goods.
- Please be careful with the products we send you; if they’re not still in great condition we might not be able to refund you in full and we HATE doing that.
- Please include the returns form you received with your parcel.
- We must receive the returned item within 30 days of delivery.
- To give you peace of mind, any unwanted Father's Day gift purchased between June 1st and June 19th has until 19th July 2021 to be returned. Items must be returned unused, in pristine condition and with proof of purchase. This excludes gift experiences, personalised gifts and consumable items.
- We’ll process the refund against the card or account (such as PayPal) which you used to pay for your order. (Excluding premium delivery costs).
- Please note that we cannot accept returns for unwanted personalised items, which are exempt from distance selling regulations.

What happens if an item is damaged or faulty?
If you've been unlucky enough to receive a faulty product, please contact us through our contact page, or email email@example.com where we will run through the process of returning a faulty or damaged item.
To ensure a fast resolution, we are now asking that you send us photos of any damage where possible. For items over £100 it would be great if you could take a video of the fault on your phone and send to us. In many cases we can find a solution with you over the phone and avoid you the hassle of needing to send the product back.
Refunds/exchanges are subject to reasonable expectation of performance and fair use in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions. Any item found to have been damaged during use, rather than faulty, will be returned to you.
Once inspected by our quality team, if the item is within our 30-day return policy, you will have the option of a full refund or exchange. Outside of this, in the event the fault cannot be rectified, an exchange will be provided.
If the item was purchased in one of our shops, please contact your nearest store.
If you need any advice on what to do, please call us. We track all reports of faulty items and use them in quality control checks, and we like to make sure our customers are happy!
How do I return an item bought in store that I don’t want?
Any unwanted in store purchases must be returned in store. Please make sure you have proof of purchase with you when returning to our store.
Please come back and chat to us in the original store you visited about any problems you’re having with anything you’ve bought from us. If that’s too far away, you can visit your nearest store instead.
Our central customer services team can also help you with a return if you can't make it back to a store. However, please note that we can only refund back to a gift card due to PCI compliance, and we will deduct £5 from the value of your item to cover the cost of shipping.
You’ll need to return anything with proof of purchase in pristine, unused condition within 30 days of the date you bought it from us, and we'll be happy to offer you a full refund or exchange.
Sadly, gift experiences, personalised gifts and consumable items are excluded from this policy; ask our store staff for details.
If you'd like to return something in pristine condition that you've had for more than 30 days, please do pop into one of our stores and speak to us, as we're always keen to ensure we have happy customers.
If you need any advice on what to do, just get in touch.
What's your Christmas Gift Returns Policy?
To give you peace of mind, every gift purchased between 5th October and 24th December can be returned for an exchange or credit via gift card up to 25th January in the following year. Items must be returned unused, in pristine condition and with proof of purchase. This excludes gift experiences, personalised gifts and consumable items.
Can I return my used electrical items and batteries for you to recycle and dispose of?
In the UK, some of our fastest growing waste comes from unwanted electrical equipment. Because of this, the Waste Electrical or Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive has been brought in, which aims to increase the amount of electrical waste that is recycled or disposed of in an environmentally friendly way. For all of our customers, we offer the opportunity to recycle their old small electrical items or batteries with us. To do so, simply find your nearest local Menkind or RED5 store here and hand your item to one of our friendly staff members who will be more than happy to help. They'll collect all items together and we'll then send them to a WEEE treatment facility in Normanton, where each item will be broken down into individual components, such as metal, plastic or glass. Each of these components are separated and recycled, so that nothing needs to be sent to landfill. You'll know which items might need to be disposed of in this way because they'll be marked with a crossed out wheeled bin symbol - please don't throw any items with this symbol away in your bin! If you would like any additional information about this directive you can find more information here.
If you're not near one of our stores, you can also search for your local waste portable battery recycling facility online, or contact our customer services team for a free of charge returns label.
