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.
* Next Day Service or Overnight Delivery is next Business Day
As a courtesy service...All gift product pages show an estimated processing and delivery time with our 'Shipping Calculator' by entering in the destination zip code.
*Stork Baby Gift Baskets does not make any guarantees regarding delivery dates other than what is guaranteed by our carriers.
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.

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.

- I am sending something as gift, do you include pricing?
*We will never include pricing with our items shipped. A gift card or a packing slip may be included with a gift card message but never pricing.
- I am sending more than one gift, will they ship together?
*Items starting with the same letters can typically ship together or at least at the same time from the same location.
So for example, if you select one item the product number starts with "BBC" and a second item that starts with "BGC" then no, they will not ship together. In this case, we will estimate which item will arrive 1st and include a note to your recipient to let them know that another gift will be arriving shortly.
- Can I include a gift card message to my recipient?
*Yes, all product pages include a text area so you can include a personalized message to your recipient.
-What if I forgot to include a gift card message?
*Feel free to contact us either by phone or email and we can still include it as long as your gift has not been packaged to ship. We will always include at least the billing name provided on the order form if the gift card message was left blank so at least your recipient knows whom sent the gift.

*You can always place an order over the phone during our normal business hours of M-F 9-5 EST however, keep in mind, if you place your order online it is much quicker for us to respond with any information regarding your order including tracking info.
-What is the correct way to list initials for a monogram?
*When selecting a style for your monogram, keep in mind that the order of initials varies according to the style.
For monogram styles in which the center letter is taller than the others, the order of initials is traditionally first/last/middle. For example, if your name is Sara Marie Smith, the monogram would be SSM.
For styles in which all letters are equal in size, the order of initials should be first/middle/last. In this case, the monogram would be SMS.
-What if my gift takes longer than the processing time shown on the product page?
*Processing times are an estimated time frame in which we strive to get your gift out the door, however, it is an estimate only and is no way guaranteed.
