Shipping & Gift Guarantee
If you'd like us to hold your order for a future delivery date, add a Delivery Date Request at checkout specifying approximately when you'd like your order to arrive.
Get all your Christmas shopping done early with seasonal pre-orders.
Chocolates on pre-order aren't ready to ship yet (because we're still hard at work making them at our Factory Kitchen!). Each pre-order has an estimated availability for shipping date which is when the chocolates should be ready to ship to you. This date is found at the top of the product page; please make note of the date and the estimated shipping time before purchasing. Estimated availability might also change but we do our best to keep to the schedule.
When you purchase seasonal pre-orders:
- Your credit card is charged when you place your order.
- We ship your entire order together when all products become available to ship and notify you by email. This may take up to 5 weeks. When placing pre-orders, you agree to these terms.
- If you'd like us to hold your order until closer to the holidays, add a Delivery Date Request at checkout specifying approximately when you'd like your order to arrive (e.g. mid December).
If your order includes both pre-order and in-stock items:
To receive in-stock items immediately, please select the Ship to Multiple Addresses tab during checkout and place your seasonal pre-orders in a separate shipment, even if you're shipping all your products to the same address. We will notify you by email when each shipment is sent.
