If you are ordering 5 or more gifts, you may CONTACT ME for assistance.

Tip on ordering for Squamish Delivery Addresses: 

Please accept the address with the postal code that google maps suggests. Often, your recipient will provide you their P.O. Box postal code instead of their street address postal code as these codes are different.

What address and phone number should I put for my recipient to avoid re-delivery fees?

Pure gift boxes does not deliver to P.O. Boxes as gifts are delivered via courier.

Please ensure you provide an actual physical delivery address & the recipient's phone number (not yours!) where someone will be able to receive the gift during daytime hours between 9 am to 5pm. Evening deliveries are an additional option in Squamish from 5 to 7pm on Tuesday & Thursdays. 

If your recipient resides in a condo or apartment then their phone number is required. Pleas DO NOT  provide your phone number in the delivery address as this may delay delivery and incur a re-delivery charge of $20.

* A person aged 19 or over MUST be present to receive a gift with liquor. A gift containing liquor will NOT be left at the doorstep. No exceptions. Failure to provide a delivery date and address, where someone will be available to receive a gift containing liquor, will be charged a re-delivery fee of $20.

What if no one will be home to receive the gift?

If no one is home to receive a gift not containing liquor, then the gift will be left in what would be considered a safe place at their door and is no longer the responsibility of pure gift boxes. By placing an order, you have agreed to this term.

For condos & apartments etc., we are unable to leave a gift at the main doors. So make sure your provide your recipient's phone # to arrange delivery. 

May I include liquor?

I offer 3 choices of Liquor in which I purchase on your behalf -  BC VQA Cabernet Merlot, BC VQA Pinot Gris or Craft Beer. All of which are popular and very well received.

* A $15 service fee is included in the price of the liquor being purchased on behalf of you, the customer. Because pure gift boxes is unable to stock or purchase liquor at wholesale, this is a very minor cost to cover Lindsay's time to travel to the liquor store, purchase the liquor on your behalf, and curate it into your thoughtful gift. 

May I choose the exact liquor brand I wish to include?

At this point in time, I do not offer this type of service. The wine and craft beer that I purchase on your behalf are all very well received.

Do you offer other liquor other than Wine & Craft Beer?

At this point in time, I do not offer this type of service. The wine and craft beer that I select are all very well received.

Substitutions:

I work with small local businesses & local makers. On a rare occasion, due to supply, a substitution may be required. Pure gift boxes reserves the right to substitute, of equal, or greater value. You will be contacted prior to your gift being delivered to accept the substitution.

Do you offer refunds?

Due to the time and care put into curating each individual gift, pure gift boxes does not offer refunds once the gift has been curated, shipped or delivered. If an item arrives broken, please email a photo within 1 week of receiving the gift to arrange for a replacement of the individual product. Email puregiftboxes@gmail.com
