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. Also, we add their name to the front of the card.
If we haven't received a message from you initially, 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].

What is the timeframe for delivery of my Hug Box™?
It will usually take 1-2 days to process and then 2-3 days for USPS 2-3 day priority mail shipping. We offer a discounted flat fee of $4.99 (Price excludes Hawaii, Alaska, Zone 8 States - California, Washington and Oregon and overnight delivery and UPS options). You may choose overnight delivery, but unfortunately that is really pricey no matter what.
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.
Where can I send my Hug Box™?
Currently we only ship within the USA. We also offer UPS shipping to Canada.
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.
