Do you ever substitute items in a gift from your online store?

Because of the perishable and seasonal nature of some of our products, substitutions may be necessary to ensure timely delivery of your gifts. 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 allergies. 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 you. 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. Many gift options in our online store allow you to specify gluten free. In that case some product substitutions may occur. Ask us if you have a request for lower sugar items or other food restrictions, and we will be happy to discuss options.

Do you include packing slips?

Because many of our shipments are gifts sent directly to the 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 write your note (25 words or less) in your order notes.

Why do you charge sales tax?

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

Do you ship internationally?
