When purchasing a single box you are entering into a contract for a one-off payment. When purchasing a subscription box you are entering into a contract for one up front payment of four boxes, which is a reduced price when compared to four single boxes.
Entering into a contract
The images of the range in the online shop are intended as an illustration and do not constitute binding offers for sale. By completing the order process by clicking on the “Add To Basket & Pay Now" button the customer makes a binding offer to enter into a purchase contract. The customer thereupon receives an automated confirmation of receipt of order by e-mail (order confirmation). This order confirmation does not constitute acceptance of the offer. The contract with Hygge & Hound is only concluded when Hygge & Hound sends the ordered product to the customer and the shipping to the customer is confirmed by e-mail (shipping confirmation).
The photographs on the Hygge & Hound website are illustrative only, colours may appear differently on a screen to the product in reality, and patterns for fabric can vary as they are a handmade product. The photos have been edited sympathetically to ensure the image represents the product as fairly as we can.
All sizes are approximate. The buyer should be aware, particularly with handmade items, that the true sizes can vary around the stated size.
All prices include VAT where applicable.
