Variation in Appearance & Substitutions

Gift baskets shown on this website are general representations of our gift selections. Our designs and inventory are constantly changing with the discovery of new items and trends and therefore we cannot guarantee that any two gifts will be exactly alike.  You may rest assured that this will only enhance and not change the theme of your unique gift.  We reserve the right to substitute an item with one of equal or greater value, due to availability of products and containers, seasonal changes, or any other reason.

Tracking information will be sent by e-mail when your gift has been shipped.
