Are your delivery times guaranteed?
Yes! Our courier deliveries are guaranteed for Calgary the same day. (Orders Placed Before 11AM) We do not guarantee specific times for deliveries throughout the day, but will request the customer’s preferred delivery time to the courier company who will do their best to accommodate. Surrounding areas, Canada and International and can be delivered the following day (24hr notice required prior to delivery date expected.), 5 Business days, 2-3 Days, Overnight and Saturdays. If our courier misses the delivery then we will refund the shipping on your gift. If the recipient is not home and our courier was unable to deliver the package or leave it in a safe place, this does not qualify as a missed delivery.
Circumstances such as severe weather, natural disasters and so on void the delivery guarantee. We are fair and reasonable with our shipping refunds and expect that you are the same. Troubles with shipping is a very infrequent event with our expert courier service. The only scheduled exception for guaranteed delivery is the few weeks during the Christmas Gifts season where occasionally packages are delayed but almost always still arrive at a later time on the requested delivery date.
Do you ship the same day?
Yes! On Mon-Sat we take orders to ship the same day until 11 AM, as our last courier pick up is at 1PM. During the week of a major holiday, we often extend our delivery times and frequency. We have special arrangements with the courier to make late pickup’s or allow us to make late drop off’s if the situation arises.
What if we get an incorrect or incomplete Address?
If we ship a gift basket to an incorrect address that was provided to us, our courier will return it to us. Unfortunately, our courier charges us a flat $10 fee to return the package, which we must in turn charge you. Once a package with an incorrect or incomplete address has left us there is little we can do. If caught in time our courier may be able to reroute the package to the proper address for a no additional fee, but this is not always successful.
Our courier almost always calls us to tell us that there is a problem delivering the package. In these rare instances, we ask for your patience and promise in return to do everything in our power to make sure your gift basket arrives in perfect condition and as soon as humanly possible.
Can I send a package internationally?
Yes! If the item is sensitive to shipping times, we suggest you give us a call at 403.201.1166 to place your order.
Depending on weight and delivery times a change in delivery fees may occur. If your order is being placed well in advance you can proceed with online ordering.
Do recipients have to be present to receive their packages?
It is up to the discretion of the individual courier delivery driver. If the package can be safely left then they are instructed to do so, that way the recipient will receive their gift on the day it was intended. If they cannot leave the package in a secure location the driver will have to come back later, and very often it is on the same day.
For a number of reasons we will occasionally run out of a specific item (that is usually on the way) but sometimes there are additional delays from vendors. If this situation occurs we reserve the right to substitute a product of equal or greater value.
What if My Order Arrives Damaged?
Our products are well packaged so they arrive on your doorstep as beautiful as it was when it left ours. If an item does arrive damaged or with items missing, please notify us within 3 days. We’re happy to send you replacement items. Missing items may have been substituted.
We offer a 7 day return policy on shelf-stable item purchases. We will refund your order total, less shipping and handling each way. Please be mindful of the following details about returns: For free shipping items, our delivery costs will be deducted from your total refund. Orders cannot be canceled once it has shipped. Items that are returned must be in new condition and in the original packaging. Do not assemble or modify a product before returning it or we will not refund your purchase.
