A: Yes, all gift baskets are insured against loss and damage during shipping at no extra cost to you!

Q: Why are you limited to the Countries you can ship your gift baskets to?

A: Some European Countries do not have optimized delivery services, making it hard to guarantee delivery. For this reason, we cannot deliver to Norway, Republic of Cyprus and Malta. The list of all remaining EU Countries, plus Switzerland, Liechtenstein & the UK that we can deliver to can be found here:

Q: What forms of payment do you accept?

A: We accept VISA, Mastercard, American Express and Paypal.

Q: What is your product substitution policy?

A: In rare situations, a product may suddenly not be available. In these cases, we reserve the right to substitute that product with another product of greater or equal value. When this becomes necessary, please be assured that the subsitute product would be matched accordingly to fit with the gift basket you have ordered. We believe it is better to ship the gift basket on time than on waiting to ship once the product is available again. We appreciate you understanding our policy on this issue.

Q: Why do you need my recipient's phone number?

A: Shipping companies require the recipient's phone number to qualify for our guaranteed delivery service. With your permission, we would call the gift basket recipient only when a deliver problem arrises.

Q: Do you ship chocolate in the summer?

A: Unfortunately, it is not possible for us to ship chocolates in the summer months. The summer heat melts our chocolate products, creating gift basket and hamper conditions that are not up to our standards. We remove some of our chocolate gift baskets from our online shop in the summer. Please be aware that any gifts including chocolate products that remain online in the summer months will have the chocolate replaced by another sweet treat with the same or higher value.

Q: How long have you been in business?

A: Gift Baskets Europe has been in business since 2002.

Q: Do you charge VAT on your gift baskets?

A: We are required by law to collect VAT on all gift baskets designated for the European Union. We include VAT in the pricing you see in our online store. Many businesses qualify for VAT exclusion. We encourage these businesses to visit
