We will continue to accept online gift certificate orders for regular mail delivery in Houston until December 21 at noon CST, and in Austin until December 22 at noon CST. After December 22, we can no longer guarantee a December 25 delivery.

December 15, 2014

Here’s what you need to know about milk + honey’s last-minute shipping.

If you place your order by Saturday, Dec. 20 before 10 a.m. and the final destination is an Austin address, the package should arrive via standard shipping by Dec. 24.

If you live outside of Austin, standard shipping on orders placed after Thursday, Dec. 18 does not guarantee a pre-Christmas arrival. To ensure the order is received by the 24th, you should choose the option for expedited/overnight delivery, pick up the gift certificate in store, or purchase an instant gift certificate online.

Any orders placed on Tuesday, Dec. 23 before 10 a.m. by FedEx overnight is the only option that will ensure a pre-Christmas delivery; standard shipping does not guarantee a pre-Christmas arrival time.

We cannot guarantee delivery before Christmas Day on any orders placed on Tuesday, Dec. 23 after 10 a.m. To avoid any issues, you can also order our instant gift certificates, phone in an order for pick-up, or stop into any of our four locations.

Pro tip: our Arboretum Market and South Lamar locations have the shortest lines!

**If you have any additional questions, or need help placing an order, feel free to stop by any of our four locations or call 512.236.1115.**
