- You can compare costs for shipping by using the shipping calculator when placing your order online.
- Book Bouquet gifts are shipped, they are not hand delivered.
- Double check your address. Book Bouquet is not responsible for gifts shipped to an incorrect address that you provided.
- Overnight shipping is expensive because you are buying a plane ticket (at the last minute) for your box. With fuel costs rising it is not cheap to fly anymore! Costs also vary widely depending on the size of the shipping box we have to use to ship your gift.
- Overnight Orders received by 3:00pm EST Monday - Friday will ship that day. Orders received after 3:00pm ship the next business day. That means orders received after 3:00pm Friday will ship on Monday.
- If the post office is closed for a holiday Book Bouquet is also closed.
- You will receive a tracking number by email once your order has been shipped.
- Most patients are discharged early and within one to two days of their procedure. We highly recommend shipping to a home address.
- If you ship to a hospital here is how your gift will reach the patient:
1. Gift arrives at hospital loading dock, which is only open Monday through Friday.
2. Gift is taken to mail room for sorting.
3. Gift is taken to patient services for delivery to patient or to ward of patient.
4. If gift is not delivered directly to patient it goes to nurses station on ward and will be delivered by nurse when she visits patient next.
5. Patients in ICU may have their gifts held until they are released from ICU. It is up to each hospital and their policies.
So please be aware that it can take one extra day from the time your gift reaches the hospital until it reaches the patient.
- You must choose one of the UPS delivery methods to ship to a hospital. (This does not include Rehabilitation Centers and Long Term Care Facilities. For those choose any shipping option.)
- We ship to Canada, Australia and the United Kingdom via Global Mail Priority which takes 4 - 7 days for delivery. It may take longer during the holiday season as customs becomes busier handling packages.
Military APO/AE addresses:
- We ship to all Military addresses via the United States Post Office.
