HOLIDAY SHIPPING:

  • DOMESTIC ONLY: USPS recommends that if you would like your packages by December 25th that you must have your order ready to ship by December 18th, and choose Priority Shipping. Now with the COVID-19 delays, and everyone shopping from home, please manage your expectations, as we do not know how this shipping season will go with our carriers. Please find more information on USPS website
  • INTERNATIONAL ONLY: We do not recommend choosing USPS International Priority if you want to get your package by December 25th. USPS advises globally the shipping cut off date ranges from November 27th - December 7th depending on your location. There could also be delays based on your countries customers office. Please find more information on USPS website. DHL International has a much faster processing and shipping window, however please keep in mind that your countries customs office or COVID restrictions could cause delays. We suggest your orders be ready to ship by December 18th, if using DHL as well. 
  • All items on your order must be in-stock and ready to ship for your order to go out by the 18th, please keep this in mind when placing your order.
