The Bow Boutique is family run by two sisters, Tanya and Laura who love to make pretty headbands for their little girls, Brooke and Emme. The Bow Boutique was set up in 2013. We recently attended The Baby and Toddler Show in Manchester which was amazing and we got to meet alot of our old and new customers with over 10,832 people attending the show over the 3 days.

How long does delivery take?

All the items on our website are handmade by us just for you, please do allow time for us to make your item.

As soon as your order is ready to go we will send you over an email letting you know.

turnaround time is up to 10 working days over busy periods, at the moment we are working at upto 2-5 working days 

Once posted it should reach you within 1-3 days on 1st class orders to the UK and 3-10 Ireland. This can vary depending on time of year. 

 SHIPPING TO IRELAND HAS BEEN TEMPORARILY TURNED OFF. (Northern Ireland orders can be placed as normal)

** We have noticed more Ireland customers using AdressPal to have their orders shipped over to Ireland while we are unable to send. I will attach the link to the AddressPal website incase you are interested and want to have your bows sent. 

This disruption is being caused by the implementation of new import controls once items reach Ireland. 

International orders may take slightly longer.

 We aim to get your items out to you as fast as possible but we put 100% into making each item to make sure it is perfect for you. 


Countries within the EU

Brexit means that as of 1st July 2021 it is so much harder to ship from the UK to countries within the EU. There is a new rule that means all orders under £135 (around150 euro) have some new VAT rules.

International Duties

All international orders are subject to their own countries import rules.  You may be charged VAT or Sales Tax, Import Duty and/or a handling fee. You can look at your countries governments rules to find out more about this.  

PLEASE NOTE: if you refuse to pay these charges then the shipper may decide to destroy the parcel instead of return it to sender,  we will not be responsible for any import charges nor any destroyed parcels,  import duty and fees is purely the responsibility of the purchaser.

UK postage for 1st class/24 tracked is £5. Please note that is is not a quicker delivery. As items are hand made to order we do need time to make up
