Shipping During Warm Weather

Every year as we approach the long weekend in May we need to start thinking about shipping certain items in the warm weather.  Chocolate, cheese and candles are particularly sensitive to the heat.  To avoid disappointment we do not recommend shipping these outside the GTA between Victoria Day weekend and Labour Day weekend.  

If you are ordering a gift for someone in the GTA we have expanded the range that we use our next-day local courier during these hot summer months and now between Hamilton and Oshawa, Brampton and Newmarket your orders are being delivered with our local courier in temperature controlled conditions (i.e. not sitting around in hot trucks or warehouses).  This allow us to send anything you want to order including chocolate, cheese and candles year-round.

If you’re ordering a gift for someone outside of the GTA we’ve listed some awesome gift basket options below that are safe for shipping during the summer months anywhere in Canada!  We also have have a wide range of other merchandise including blankets, puzzles, DIY kits and more!
