Here you’ll find the answers to a range of questions you may have about Smartbox gift boxes. Whether you’ve just received a gift box, are ready to use one or would like to place an order, we are here to help.

General information

  • What is a Smartbox?

    A Smartbox is the gift you live!

    Each gift box gives its recipient the opportunity to select an experience of their choice. With a wide range of experiences to choose from, it’s the perfect alternative to a material gift.

    Each gift box contains:

    • A guide outlining a selection of experiences available with the gift box (these may range from activities, restaurants, getaways and wellness)
    • A gift certificate that allows the recipient to reserve their chosen experience

    The Smartbox gift box is also available as an electronic version (e-Voucher), delivered via e-mail.

  • What is an e-Voucher?

    An e-Voucher is an electronic version of our physical gift box. It’s delivered via email, so you’ll receive it much quicker than a physical box. Each e-Voucher contains:

    • A voucher number
    • A confirmation code
    • An expiration date

    An e-Voucher can be used in exactly the same way as a physical gift box. To access the full list of experiences available, you should register your e-Voucher to your personal account. This will also give you access to online reservation and exchange, and protect you from loss or theft.

    2. Select Register My Smartbox
    3. Enter your Voucher Number and Confirmation Code – you will find this information in your confirmation email

    Your shipment can also be personalized by adding a message to the recipient for free. We recommend that you carefully check your message before completing your order as it will not be possible to change it once your order is complete.

  • Can I track the delivery of my order?

    Yes. As soon as you place your order you will receive an email containing your order reference number, which begins with ‘SIECOF’.

    Once your order is dispatched, you will receive a second email containing your parcel number and a link to track your parcel.

    Please note, it may take several hours for dispatch to take place after you place your order. If you don’t receive an email with your tracking number, please check your Spam/Junk folder.
