Shipping: Rates and Timing

IMPORTANT NOTES about Shipping:

1. Orders received AFTER NOON Pacific time Monday through Thursday will be shipped the FOLLOWING day, as if they were submitted the day after you actually submitted the order. 

This is important for you to calculate your shipping days. 

2. Orders received Friday after NOON Pacific Time, on Saturday, or on Sunday, begin processing on Monday morning, as if we received your order on Monday. This is important for you to calculate your shipping days. 

EXAMPLE 1: For an order submitted after NOON PST on Friday afternoon, would need to select OVERNIGHT SHIPPING for delivery on Tuesday, 2 day delivery for delivery on Wednesday, etc

EXAMPLE 2: An order received Monday BEFORE NOON for delivery to New York City. Using Ground Shipping, this COULD take five business days, which would be the following Monday, not Friday of the same week.

If you have questions, please reach out to us via email at bill@thebestgiftbaskets.com or call at 650.804.0074.

3. For Shipping a Gift via Ground, assume up to 5 business days or 1 full week for your gift to arrive.
