What happens if the recipient is not there?
All our boxes automatically have a "signature release," which means that our boxes can be dropped off without requiring a signature. In most cases, the delivery driver will knock or ring the bell, and if there is no answer, will leave the product somewhere safe at the delivery location.

How do I know my box was delivered?
Once your box has been delivered, you will receive a confirmation email with the time of delivery.

Can I send boxes outside the Silicon Valley area?
Yes, please take a look at the Charley Box.  We can ship that box anywhere in the continental US . While we’d love to share our other boxes nationally, to ensure freshness, our delivery area is local only.

Can you deliver to a college dorm?
Sure! As long as you have the full street address and dorm number it shouldn't be a problem. Please note that most campus housing is very secure and therefore may not be able to accept the delivery if the recipient is not available, so our courier may be routed to the campus' mail room.

I just found out that the recipient will be out of town for their box delivery, what can I do?
Let us know as soon as you find out and, as long as the boxes are not already out for delivery, we can work with you to schedule a new date. However, if the box has already left our studio, we are not able to cancel your order or change the delivery date. We strongly encourage that you confirm that the recipient will be home when you'd like to send them their box!

It is against our privacy policy to reveal the sender's identity without their permission where they have chosen not to include their name on the card or if they sent it anonymously. If you wish to find out who sent your beautiful box where there is no name in the gift message, please call us and request that we contact the customer on your behalf to see if they are happy for us to disclose their identity.
