MY PACKAGE HASN'T ARRIVED YET! WHAT CAN I DO?
Delivery dates are not guaranteed. We mail via UPS Ground, which means your gift should arrive 2-5 days after it is mailed, depending on the destination zip code. Once the package is in transit, we are no longer in control of it. Occasionally our shippers experience delays, especially around major holidays. We are not responsible for these delays. We understand that our gifts are often the center of special days and events so we will do our best to assist you in choosing the best delivery option to ensure your package arrives when you want it!
