How long will it take for my order to be delivered?
Gifts generally ship ground, unless you select a different service. Transit times will vary based on your recipient's location and the shipping method chosen (Ground; 2Day Air; Overnight). Estimated delivery times are calculated on business days (Monday through Friday).
Jody's Gift Cards and gifts less than $25 will ship USPS only. The transit times for these items vary based on recipient location as well.
Orders with all necessary information included, received by 3pm EST, will be ship the next business day. Orders received after 3pm EST, are not guaranteed for next day shipment and will most likely process on the 2nd day.
Delivery dates may be impacted by extreme weather conditions. In an effort to ensure that your gift arrives on time, we reserve the right to substitute an item of equal or greater value. In making substitutions, we take great care and consideration in selecting gifts that will meet or exceed the expectations of both the gift giver and recipient.
