Shipping & Gift Wrapping Service
Below are our shipping rates and delivery estimates within Australia and internationally, as well as information on our sustainable packaging and gift services.
We are active in keeping our shipping prices as low as possible and offer several options.
Your Cheapest Shipping Option
If you are only purchasing one item that will fit in a small satchel, and you don’t need it in a hurry, choose our “large letter” shipping option for your cheapest shipping option.
Please note: This option does NOT offer tracking and it will take longer than parcel post to arrive, in some cases it has taken several weeks for large letters to arrive. If you choose this option we take NO responsibility for items that do not arrive on your preferred date.
Your Fastest Delivery Option
Please choose the Express option for our fastest delivery. Please NOTE that due to Covid-19 and other impacting events like the floods in Eastern Australia Express Post can take up to five business days. Please allow yourself this time when making a purchase.
Please note: If you live in a remote rural area, your express delivery can taker longer than five business days.
We proudly use Australia Post as our shipping agent. To date, we have not lost a single item! They are not magicians, however, so please allow the time needed for your item to arrive, especially in times of crisis and disasters.

If no one is present at your delivery address to receive your order, the parcel will be left in a safe place; if no safe place is evident, then a card will be left in your letterbox for you to collect it from your nearest Australia Post agency. You will be required to sign for collection. To guarantee delivery, we recommend sending the order either to your workplace or a location where someone will be present weekdays to receive it between 9 am - 5 pm.
Please ensure that you have supplied the correct address and, if sending to your place of work, include the company name and at least one contact telephone number.
International rates are calculated according to Australia Post charges for your country. The cost of shipping is calculated at checkout. If your required destination does not appear, please send an email stating the items you wish to purchase, including the product name, size and color you wish to purchase. We will reply with the best shipping rates for you.
Please allow at least three weeks for your order to arrive.
Note: Covid may periodically result in extended shipping time to your location.
We use a minimum of packaging, utilizing only what is necessary for your item to arrive, as new, on your doorstep. To help slow landfill, we regularly reuse padding such as plastic bubble wrap.
We encourage you to do the same! Our exterior packaging–either a satchel, cardboard envelope or box, depending on the size of your order–is fully reusable and compostable to help lessen our collective environmental footprint.
We proudly source all our delivery packaging from Australian businesses.
Hero Packaging - Saving Our Planet, One Package at a Time
When you choose a gift from Italian Tights, you have the option to send not just a gorgeous gift, but one that is beautifully and thoughtfully wrapped. Unlike paper, our wrapping is both sustainable and dual purpose. When you send a gift from Italian Tights you are essentially giving two gifts in one!
We offer three gift wrapping choices:
- Fabric wrap: Choose either a beautiful scarf or shawl–definitely two gifts in one!
Canvas bag: These practical drawstring bags can be used to store your gift of something else and feature a text message of your choice:
- Happy Birthday
- Lots of Love
- Merry Christmas.
- Gift box: Our beautiful cardboard presentation boxes with magnetic lid closure make a great keepsake box. Gift box contents can be customized with your personalised selections, or choose from our own thoughtfully curated sets.
If you are sending a gift to a family member or friend and would like to include a note we can hand-write it for you on a plain card with the text: Just for you, inscribed on the front. Or you can select and add from our special gift cards. Just remember to write your message at checkout.
