How do I specify a different Shipping Address than Billing Address on the checkout page of Present's online store?

First complete the Billing Address section. Then you will be given the opportunity to choose between shipping to the same address as the billing address or entering a different different address. Important: There is a checkmark next to "Shipping Address same as Billing" which you may uncheck if you would like to specify a different Shipping address.

How do I return an item?

If you are not 100% satisfied with your purchase from Present, we will be happy to exchange your gift. To return an item, please contact Present via email for instructions:

Do you ever substituted items in a gift collection that is featured in your online store?

Because of the perishable and seasonal nature of some of our products, we reserve the right to make substitutions as necessary to ensure timely delivery of your gifts. Rest assured, on the rare occasions we do make substitutions, they will be thoughtfully chosen, and will be of equal or greater value than the original items. 

Changes: Descriptive or typographical errors are subject to correction. We reserve the right to change items, prices or policies at any time and without notice.

I have allergies to certain ingredients (gluten, peanuts, etc.) that may be found in your products. Where can I obtain ingredient information for your items?

Present offers select products that are labeled as gluten free, vegan, dairy free, etc. Please ask for recommendations for specific alergies. To the best of our knowledge, our labels list all ingredients. For those with peanut allergies, all products may contain trace amounts of nuts or allergens not listed in the ingredients. Also, since gluten and other allergens are found in wheat and some other grain products, we encourage you to read ingredient information carefully and determine if the product is appropriate for your consumption. If you cannot locate an ingredient label on the product you received, contact us with the product name and we will gladly research the information for you.

Do you include packing slips?

Because many of our shipments are gifts sent directly to the gift recipient, we do not include packing slips with our shipments. This policy is meant to ensure that every gift received from Present is beautifully packaged without any detracting elements. However, if for any reason you require this paperwork, please call Present and we can email or mail you a copy. The emailed Order Confirmation you receive after placing an order is your receipt. If you would like a note included, please specify this in your order notes.

Why do you charge sales tax?

We are obligated by law to collect sales tax for orders sent to California.  

Do you ship internationally?

Currently Present's online store only ships to destinations within the contiguous United States. We may ship to more locations at a later date. Please email Present with any questions:

How will my package arrive?

Your package will arrive via USPS (United States Postal Service) Priority Mail or via Deliv courier service depending on what you specify while you order. Every gift is carefully and beautifully gift wrapped, in eco-friendly gift wrap. No packing slip or receipt will be enclosed in our packages (your emailed Order Confirmation is your receipt).

How long will it take for my package to be delivered?

Priority Mail Delivery via USPS can take anywhere from 1 to 5 business days in the United States, depending on the destination for delivery. Most in stock items are shipped within 2-5 business days. Local delivery via courier can arrive the same day you order it, if the order is received and confirmed by noon that day. Otherwise Local Delivery takes place the next day or whichever day after that you request it to occur. 

How can I review or make changes to my web order?

After your order is placed online, you will receive an Order Confirmation via email. This will include an Order Number, product name, total cost and billing and shipping information. This is confirmation that your order has been placed successfully and is also your receipt. If you would like to make any changes to your order after this point, please contact Present via email and we will do our best to assist you:
