- May I add a personal message?
Yes. There is a 'You have been sent a hug' notecard in every Hug Box with the contents list and your message. The message box is located on the 'add to cart' page under the payment options. Please be sure to include their name and yours in the message, since the return mailing address is the Hug Box address. They will not know who their Hug Box is from unless you add it to your notecard. Also, we add their name to the front of the card.
If we haven't received a message for your notecard at the time of your order, we will contact you via email. If after contacting you, we haven't been emailed a message, we simply write 'You have been sent a hug' from [your name].
- May I hand-deliver my Hug Box™?
Yes. When you place your order, write 'hand-deliver' in the message box. You may include a message the notecard or we will leave it blank. Please send us the recipient's name so that we can add it to the front of the notecard.

Is there a set price on the Hug Boxes?
Each themed Hug Box has it's own unique pricing based on the contents. Our products are high quality, small batch, eco friendly and all natural USA artisan products, so they can cost slightly more than high volume corporate products, but worth it!

What is the timeframe for delivery of my Hug Box™?
It takes 1-2 days to process and then 2-5 days for USPS priority mail shipping depending on the state it is being delivered to. We are located in Georgia and aren't Amazon, so it will take more time to get to further states. We offer a discounted flat fee of $5.99 (Discounted price excludes Zones 7-9; Hawaii, Alaska, California, Washington, Oregon, Arizona, Idaho, New Mexico, Nevada, Idaho and Colorado and overnight delivery and UPS options).
Remember not to include Saturdays, Sundays and Holidays for your delivery timeline, especially for overnight or 1-2 day delivery. We cannot guarantee the timely delivery of your package once it is with USPS or UPS.
Please be aware that if you give us a shipping address for a company/office/hospital/assisted living or the like, delivery might be another day or two according to their internal mail system.
We cannot send packages to PO Boxes.
Once a package is noted 'delivered' we are not responsible if it was lost or stolen. We hope this would not occur, but if it does please let us know immediately and we will help direct you to file your claim. You will be sent a tracking number via email after you place your order and when your package is in route, so you can keep track and know when it is delivered.
- What if something was damaged in shipping?
We pack our Hug Boxes carefully to help prevent damage, but sometimes when it's in many hands, damage may occur. Please send us a photo of the damaged goods as soon as they have been received, within 3 days please, and we will be happy to replace the item.
- What if I entered the wrong address with my order?
Contact us immediately and we can adjust it. If it ships with the incorrect address that you provided, we unfortunately can't fix that.
Where can I send my Hug Box™?
Currently we only ship within the USA.
NOTE: If you live in another country, you can certainly have a gift delivered to someone living in the USA. Someday, we hope to expand internationally.
Do you deliver same day?
We do not have that service available as an option when ordering. But if you live in the Newnan, Georgia area, we are working on Hug Box deliveries to local hospitals and medical centers. Please contact us and we would be happy to assist.
Do you give refunds?
Your gift purchase is final once it has been delivered. I'm not sure we would be able to take their lovely Hug Box back, especially after they are surprised with all kinds of awesome goodies.
- Do you put receipts in the Hug Boxes?
This is a gift so there will never be a receipt in a Hug Box. You, as the client, will however receive an email with an order receipt and confirmation as well as updates on shipping. Please keep in mind as well that your name and address will not be included, so be sure to add your name to your message for the notecard.
