Delivery Policy

Delivery Policy

We here at GiftsBasketsOverseas.com understand that when you place an order, you expect your gifts to be delivered in a timely fashion.  Our delivery policies, along with an explanation of how we process your orders, are all listed below.

Delivery Area and Shipping Costs
We deliver to all major cities and towns of the serviced countries.  If you do not see the country you are looking for in the list of serviced locations we can still deliver there from our regional center. Please feel free to contact us if you are unsure whether we service specific location.

Delivery Status Notification
It is easy to inquire as to the status of any existing order by contacting GiftsBasketsOverseas.com. Please have your order number on hand for quick service.  If we have any difficulties with your order, we will contact you by telephone and/or e-mail. 
Please allow us a minimum of 2 business days to process your order for gift delivery to a choosen destination.
In many countries however, we do offer next-day delivery.  Please see list of serviced countries to send Gift Internationally. for a specific information regarding time it takes to deliver.
We cannot guarantee deliveries on Sundays or on legal holidays, so please make sure that your order information is accurate and complete in order to avoid any delays in delivery.

 

Gift Delivery Times
Our deliveries are typically made throughout the day, into the evening hours.  We can deliver as early as 9:00 am or as late as 10:00 pm.  However, we are currently unable to guarantee gift delivery requests  for a specific time or for a certain time period.  We can certainly take requests for a morning or an evening delivery, but at this time we can't guarantee a delivery time.  Stick with us!  We'll keep you posted! Here's how we schedule deliveries:  we will call your intended recipient first in order to arrange a delivery time.  If the recipient is not at home at the time of delivery, we will either:
  • Leave the gift basket with a neighbor and attach a note to your recipient's door stating the name of the person who accepted the arrangement on their behalf, or
  • Leave a note on your recipient's door asking them to call our florist's shop to arrange the most convenient time for re-delivery.

If your intended recipient is going to be at work on the day of your scheduled delivery, may we suggest sending the arrangement to the workplace.  Please keep in mind: an incomplete or incorrect address or phone number may delay delivery.

 

Guaranteed Delivery Days
When you place an order on our website you will notice that some of the dates on the delivery date selection menu are grayed-out. These are the dates we are not able to guarantee in the given country of delivery.
The possible reasons are:
  • Not enough time to deliver by the date (we usually need 1-3 business days, depending on the country of delivery, more during the holidays);
  • No weekend delivery in this country;
  • It's a government holiday;
  • Weather delays, road closures, or strikes.
Please note: When/if you select a date that is not guaranteed, we will still do our best to deliver your order as close as possible to that date; however, in many cases we will be unable to deliver on the exact date specified.

 

Calling Recipient to Arrange Delivery
We normally require a recipient's phone number to ensure a smooth delivery. The calls are normally made in the case when delivery is made by a local courier and to ensure that the recipient is home at the time of scheduled delivery.
Please note however: in some cases we don't need to call the recipient (when order is handled by a 3rd party shipper such as DHL, FedEx, UPS or others). They have their own address verification requirements & procedures, which we have no control over.

 

Delivery Attempts
Please note that delivery is attempted by a local courier. In case of unsuccessful delivery due to the recipient's absence, the gift may be left at the local post office where it can be later collected by the recipient (a note will be left at the recipients' door).
Please note: we can't be held responsible if the recipient fails to collect the gift within 2 business days of the attempted delivery date, which will result in the gift contents being spoiled and discarded.

 

Incorrect Recipient Information
If delivery could not be done because of an incorrectly specified recipient's address (and correct phone number of a recipient was not provided), GiftBasketsOverseas.com will not be responsible for delivery delays or failure, therefore no refund will be allowed.
Most of our orders are handled by a 3rd party shipper such as DHL, FedEx, UPS or others, so whenever the address is incorrect: updates in their systems & rerouting may potentially delay delivery by 1-3 business days OR lead to a complete delivery failure (when the product shelf life no longer allows for delivery delay).
We therefore highly recommend you to double check the address & specify a working recipient's phone number to ensure timely delivery.


If recipient is moved away or is unable to receive the gift at the location within 2 business days after attempted delivery: the shipment will be returned or destroyed, so no refund will be possible.


Transaction Verification
Each order must undergo a detailed verification to ensure that transaction is secure and to protect your financial information.
If we are unable to reach you or you fail to provide a required information in a timely manner: your order may be delayed.
Please note: your order will not be shipped until your financial information is verified by our anti-fraud team.


Holiday Delivery Information
Due to our increased volume of floral and gift orders being delivered during peak holiday periods, most gift delivery agents require flexible delivery dates during these times. For this reason we cannot offer same-day or next-day delivery during the following major floral holiday periods:  Valentine's Day, Christmas, Mother's Day, New Year's Eve, or Easter.

 

Special Delivery Locations
Sometimes your recipient isn't conveniently at home or the office. With GiftBasketsOverseas.com we’re dedicated to making it easy for you to send luxury gifts anywhere in the world, even when your recipient is in a non-traditional place such as a hotel, cruise ship, the hospital, at school, or even at church.

When we make deliveries to special locations such as schools, churches, hotels, hospitals or other restricted offices, it is often the case that our couriers are not allowed into these facilities to deliver the gift directly to the recipient; such deliveries will be made to the reception desk and passed onto your recipient from there. Please note that while these deliveries have a very high success rate, we cannot always verify that your recipient has received the gift - especially if we do not have a working phone number for them - and we cannot be held responsible for issues that occur with the gift once it has been delivered to reception or front desk. Please make sure that recipient is allowed to receive packages at that facility and confirm that recipient is known there by the name you specified in the order form. We'll be unable to take responsibility for delivery delay or failure due to recipient's organization declining to accept the gift. Learn more.


Gift Packaging & Containers
Gift packaging type varies based on delivery location and season. Gift may arrive in a traditional gift basket, gift box or a wooden chest (all subject to regional availability) and carton-packed for shipping (when required). We reserve the right to substitute the basket type, bow & wrap color at the local designer's discretion and holiday theme.

Easy Returns
You or a gift recipient may return new, unopened items sold by Gift Baskets Overseas within 5 days of delivery for a full refund. We'll also pay the return shipping costs if the return is a result of our error. Items should be returned in their original product packaging. Please contact us for complete instructions on how to return a product to our closest warehouse.

Substitution Policy
Occasionally minor substitutions can be made to your gift baskets due to product unavailability for urgent orders OR orders sent to remote locations. Please review our Gift Substitution Policy to learn more.


Cancellation Policy
For all regular items from our catalog: we are able cancel your order anytime as long as your order is not yet procured for shipment. If any internal expenses occurred while processing your order: the cancellation fee up to 25% will apply. Custom orders can not be canceled if the items were already sourced from our distributor.

PLEASE NOTE: We will only be able to cancel orders placed for delivery between December 5 and December 31 within 1 hour of receiving the order. This is because of the fact that orders are processed for shipment in a very timely manner and we'll be unable to issue a refund for such orders.

We act as your agent in purchasing and securing delivery of your gift in accordance with applicable local law. All orders are fulfilled and delivered by licensed retailers. Void where prohibited. Minors are forbidden by law to receive or send liquor, beer or wine.
