Shipping and Delivery
Our chocolates delivered to you, in perfect condition
At Gertrude Hawk Chocolates we take as much care in shipping your order placed online as we do making the product that goes into it. Due to the perishable nature of our chocolates, your order will be carefully packaged to ensure it arrives to you in perfect condition. During times of warm weather, we modify shipping options and package orders appropriately in insulated containers to ensure it arrives to you as fresh as it was when it left our facility.
We suggest shipping your order to an address where the recipient will be available to receive the package. We cannot control where UPS may leave your package, for example, on a front porch or outside in the elements. Our products are perishable and should not be left unattended for extended periods of time. We accept orders to be shipped within the contiguous United States. We regret that we cannot ship to Alaska, Hawaii, P.O. Boxes, FPO, APO or any country outside of the United States.
