FOR SPECIFIC DAY DELIVERIES!
WHEN SHOULD I PLACE MY ORDER? Due to the fact that LME specializes in many "custom" gift orders, please bear in mind that for some of our custom/personalized items, our initial e-mail response time for quotes can take up to 24-48 hours. If you are a client that needs an item delivered by a certain date, it is recommended that your order be placed at least 3-5 days ahead of time in order to minimize delays and/or cut-off periods. Please keep in mind that Bulk Orders may require additional advanced notice.
Your DELIVERY DATE is calculated from the date your payment updates in our system. Provided your payment is received between normal business hours (Mon-Fri/9am-5pm est), your Gift Basket should ship and arrive within 3-5 business days (not counting weekends or holidays) from date of payment. (note: Exceptions may occur with Holiday Orders, International Orders and/or Customized Orders).
BULK ORDERS (large volume/ 25 or more baskets), such orders take on average 10-15 business days to process depending on if items are being customized and availability of stock.
