Shipping & Processing

Warm Weather Care

From April to September, we charge $5.00 addtional shipping cost per shipping address for boxes containing foods and/or gift baskets that contain chocolate, candy and perishables.


It's hot on delivery trucks and in warehouses, even if it is not hot at your recipients address.  We employ thermal bags and ice packs to ensure that your gift arrives in great shape.  The thermal packaging is reusable and will help ensure that your products are safe from the heat.

Additional Notes: If your recipient is outside of Federal Express Two Day Transit zone for Home Delivery and Ground Shipments, we will require sending perishable items via 2-Day Air to ensure safe delivery.  Orders Placed before Wednesday at 12 PM will be delivered by Friday.  We will not ship perishable items over the weekend to ensure their safe arrival.
