Shipping Info & Policies


It is the customer's responsibility to read and fully understand all policies before purchasing. Once an order has been placed, it is assumed you have read, understand and agreed to our policies.
Stork Baby Gift Baskets is not responsible for any negligence or failure to read our policies.


We work with different vendors throughout the U.S. If purchasing more than one item, your gifts may ship separately and you will be charged the according shipping cost for each item.



SHIPPING INFORMATION & RATES


Please Note: You cannot count the "shipping day" as a "delivery day" so in other words, if you order ground shipping or even an express shipping method" you start counting the delivery estimation the following day after the item ships. Any confusion or questions concerning this issue, we recommend calling before placing your order.

Processing times do NOT include shipping time.  See below for more info.



International Shipping: Please click here for more information.


* Carriers are used at our discretion (Usually FEDEX, UPS or USPS but sometimes others)
* Next Day Service or Overnight Delivery is next Business Day

All gift product pages show an estimated processing time and shipping options with a ship map. This shows the "estimated" processing time to get your order out the door.
(This is not a guarantee, all orders are shipped in the order they are received and we do our very best to ship out all items in the estimated time frame.) The email order status update you will
receive is in no way guaranteed , it is simply a courtesy notice to inform you of our sincerest effort to ship your item in a timely matter.



VERIFY YOUR SHIPPING ADDRESS BEFORE PLACING YOUR ORDER

It is the customer's responsibility to make sure a complete and correct shipping address is given. We do not verify shipping address and are not responsible if an item ships to an incorrect address and is not returned to us or does not end up with the correct recipient. We will not replace nor refund the expense of the gift item nor the shipping if an incorrect or incomplete address was given.


Processing time and shipping times are 2 different factors and both must be considered when ordering your gift item.

*All estimated processing times are shown on each product page, this does not include shipping time.  See map (link on each product page) for estimated ship time and add it to the processing time to get an "estimated" delivery time. Any questions, please contact us. Processing + Shipping = Delivery.

*Shipping Times are "Estimated" and we make no financial guarantees other then what the actual carrier will guarantee. All of our product pages offer shipping maps so you can get an estimate of the shipping time expected before making your selection. Once a selection is made and the order has shipped, there is no way to speed up or change the method with the carrier ~ no exceptions! Please call us if you have any concerns or need assistance in estimating when a gift might arrive (before placing your order).

* Please note: Ground shipments do not require a signature and may be left at a door. Express Shipments may require a signature depending on the carrier and may be returned to the facility/and or returned to us if no one is available...typically a carrier will leave a note and/or attempt delivery once or twice before returning an item to us. If an item is returned to us, we will need to re-charge shipping fees to ship it out again.

*Once an order has left our facility with the carrier, it falls under the carriers guidelines and guarantees.

APOs, PO Boxes, Hawaii/Alaska, Puerto Rico, and other American Territories. Please note: Items shipping to these areas will most likely require additional shipping cost. Notice of the additional charges will be emailed to you before processing your order so you may opt out at that point and cancel the order if you so choose. You may also contact us before placing your order for a quote.


Many of our products cannot ship to PO Boxes. Options for shipping to Hawaii/Alaska, Puerto Rico, and other American Territories are offered as an option for most items.
