guinea pig covid-19 coronavirus business as usual


Mummy Pig, Daddy Pig and I would like to reach out to our wonderful community of guinea pig friends and share with you our plan for the coming weeks.

As far as possible, we aim to continue with our usual service of delivering parcels of guinea pig love around the world. We produce much of our range ourselves in our own studio and hold the remainder of our stock in house meaning that we have full control over our supply and shipping.

We have received updates from Royal Mail and The Post Office and they have assured customers that they will maintain as normal a service as possible. We continue to adhere to government guidelines and will monitor the situation closely.

Whilst we understand that the world is facing a far more serious situation than shopping for guinea pig gifts, we know that this time will indeed pass. Whilst we weather the storm, we hope our business can provide a little light relief and positivity through our content and products.

Please, wherever possible, support small businesses and help us continue to spread the guinea pig love….we all need it. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your continued support, we really appreciate it.

Stay safe, keep well stocked with salad (we won’t mention toilet rolls) and look after one another.

As we all try and settle in to a new lock-down routine, there are so many new changes and challenges (not to mention emotions) to navigate. Whilst the lock-down is vitally important for protecting lives and our NHS, it's really tough. It's at times like this that little gestures and kind thoughts go a long way which is why we're now offering a guinea pig gifting service.

With the latest lock down measures, shopping for birthdays and special occasions has been put on hold with no end date in sight. For most, even a trip to the post office is currently off limits meaning that special occasions are unfortunately going to be missed.

To help spread a little guinea pig love at this very difficult time we've launched our Guinea Pig Gifting Service. If you're ordering a guinea pig themed gift for a friend or relative we can leave the invoice out of your parcel, hand write on the card on your behalf and post it directly to the recipient....more details below.

We're still able to process orders as usual here at Everything Guinea Pig and can also drop parcels directly into the mailing system which means that we can maintain social distancing measures and there is no unnecessary contact. The government is encouraging online shopping to continue and in our case, it also means supporting a small and independent family business (thank you in advance).



1) Shop our collections of guinea pig gorgeousness (the shop menu above is a good place to start), adding your purchases to your basket as usual, don't forget the card!

2) In the cart page, enter your e-mail address followed by the SHIPPING address. This is the address of the recipient, not your billing address.

3) Continue to the shipping page and select your preferred shipping options. Click continue to payment.

4) On the payment page, there is the option to enter a different BILLING address. Click on 'use a different billing address' and enter the BILLING details linked to your payment card.

5) Click 'review order' and complete your purchase.

6) Once your order has been placed you'll automatically receive a confirmation e-mail. If you have ordered a card and would like us to write on it on your behalf, you can reply directly to this confirmation e-mail with details of what you'd like including in your card. You can also use Messenger if you'd prefer.

7) We'll hand write your personalised message into your card and send your order out without the invoice included.

NB: If you don't require a card but would still like your order shipping directly to the recipient that's not a problem. Just reply to the confirmation e-mail and let us know you'd like the invoice paperwork leaving out.
