2017 Holiday Shipping Deadlines Approaching

We hate seeing people spending huge amounts of money to get gifts shipped on time. The good news is: there is still time left to get the perfect gift and not pay a fortune to ship it! For domestic shipments, orders placed before December 14th at 4PM Pacific time with our Standard (and Free Shipping Option) should arrive on before December 22nd at all but the most remote locations in Canada. For locations in Western Canada, shipments placed far later will still likely arrive on time – but be sure to contact us if you are not sure!

For more information, check out the Holiday Shipping Guidelines !
