Please remember these tips from the gifting specialists at Sweet Secrets Chocolate:

ORDER EARLY.  Although we try to make sure to have plenty of inventory, sometimes we run out of some items.

 Chocolate melts.  Warm weather destinations, over 72 degrees, require cold packs and 2 Day or Next Day Shipping method.

Ship on Mondays and Tuesdays so that your packages do not spend time in transit over the weekends.

 Expedited shipping options are available.  Please contact our customer service to make appropriate arrangements.

 Plan a little extra time for shipping.  Service guarantees for on time deliveries by major carriers are suspended for most of the month of December.  We’ll do our best to meet your expectations, but can not make delivery guarantees. 

Winter weather can also impact your shipping service. Not just the weather where the shipping begins or ends, but all points in between.

We ship outbound from Chicago.  A link to the UPS ground shipping map is provided here to assist you with planning.

We want your gifts handled with the same expectations we have of our own gifts.  With that mission, we will try our hardest to make sure your gifts arrive on time and in perfect condition.  We know that a happy customer will be a repeat customer and will refer us to others.  That is the foundation of our business.

 Happy Holiday Shopping and Happy Holiday Shipping!
