Yes. You must be 21 years of age or older to purchase or receive a basket from us which contains alcohol. This is a Federal Law with no exceptions.

Please note: Title to, and ownership of, all wine and/or spirits purchased on this site passes from M&M Wines Corp. (M&M) to the purchaser in the State of New Jersey and the purchaser takes all responsibility for the shipping it from New Jersey to his/her home state. By arranging for transportation of the wine, M&M is providing a service to, and acting on behalf of, the purchaser. By utilizing this service, the purchaser is representing that he/she is acting in a fashion compliant with his/her local and state laws regarding the purchase, transportation and delivery of wine and/or spirits. The purchaser represents that he/she has obtained any required permission, paid any required fees, is working through properly licensed intermediaries where required, is legally entitled to take possession of wine and is legally entitled to take quantities ordered and once again affirms that he/she is at least 21 years of age.

It depends. For any gift that contains alcohol, the recipient, or someone else over 21, must sign for the package. For all other baskets, a signature is not required, but the driver does have the discretion to insist upon a signature, if the driver feels it is unsafe to leave the package unattended (i.e. an apartment building with no doorman).

The driver will leave a note at the location, informing the recipient that a delivery attempt has been made and giving instructions on how the recipient can ensure they get the package delivered on the next business day. The driver will make 3 delivery attempts, on 3 separate days. The package will then be held in the local delivery warehouse for approximately 2 - 10 days, during which time the recipient has the option to pick up the package in person. After that, the package will be returned to us.

Note: If you are sending a basket containing alcohol, and are not sure if anybody will be home to sign for it, we strongly suggest you ship the basket to a work address, or to an address where somebody over 21 will be there to sign for it.

We can ship wine to most states. Unfortunately, we cannot ship alcohol to a number of states, due to specific regulations in those states. The list of restricted states may change from time to time. At present, the restricted states are Arizona, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Mississippi, North Dakota, Tennessee and Utah.

Yes, except for California. Due to restrictions on fruit by the CA Department of Agriculture, we cannot ship fruit baskets to California. We suggest you choose from our extensive variety of gourmet baskets to send there.

Yes, self-imposed ones. We want every gift basket we make to look as beautiful upon receipt as it is on the day it leaves our facility.

From May – October, to retain their freshness, baskets containing chocolate or fresh cheeses, that require a Ground transit time of more than two calendar days, will be shipped Express. There is an additional charge for this.

Fresh fruit can be shipped all year round via Ground delivery, if it is expected to take fewer than two calendar days to arrive. Deliveries going further than a 2-day zone must go Express delivery.

We ship from New Jersey, and transit times throughout the U.S. can vary. Please click on the map below for estimated transit times.

Note: Alaska and Hawaii cannot be shipped Ground – they can only be shipped Express. Please refer to the shipping tab on the Product Description page for shipping restrictions.

We can arrange local delivery to NY/NJ metro for large volume orders only. All orders must be received before 10:30am EST, Monday – Friday (except for legal holidays and occasionally, the weeks prior to Christmas). Please contact customer service for assistance at 800.252.6262. See list of zip codes for delivery areas.

No, the day the shipment is picked up is not included when calculating the delivery date. Saturdays, Sundays and legal holidays are not calculated in the delivery dates either. All orders received after 2pm EST will ship next business day.

Yes. During checkout, you have the ability to specify on our shipping calendar the date you want your gift basket shipped. The estimated delivery date will then be displayed.

Due to Covid-19 and the safety precautions FedEx is now taking, they are not guaranteeing any on time deliveries.

Please contact Customer Service immediately so they can assist you with this. We will only be able to make the address correction if the item is not yet packed and ready to ship from our facility. If we are able to make the change, we cannot guarantee that the shipping company will honor it, due to their internal re-routing restrictions. If we are able to successfully make the correction, there will be a $15.00 address correction fee.

P.O. Boxes: We cannot deliver to a P.O. Box - therefore, we cannot accept any orders going to such an address. We can have packages delivered to Rural Route number addresses.

Hospitals: We generally do not recommend sending gift baskets to a patient in a hospital, unless you are certain the patient will still be in the hospital on the day the package is to be delivered. We are not responsible if the patient is no longer there when the basket arrives, if the basket gets misplaced within the hospital, or if the hospital staff fails to deliver the gift to the patient's room. It is a much safer bet to send the basket to the person's home and have a relative bring it to the hospital.

Hotel: We ask that you be absolutely sure the recipient will still be in the hotel when your gift arrives. We are not responsible if the guest is no longer at the hotel when the basket arrives, if the basket gets misplaced within the hotel, or if the hotel staff fails to deliver the gift to the guest.

The cost of shipping depends upon the delivery option you choose. Please see the shipping tab located on the product description page for current rates and any restrictions.

We ship our gift baskets nationwide via Ground and Express delivery services and we deliver locally by van within northern New Jersey. Please see list of zip codes for delivery areas. (include zip code page link there)

Sorry, we do not ship out of the country.

All items in our gift baskets are carefully packed to prevent breakage. Our gift baskets are shrink wrapped, blanketed within a cocoon of environmentally friendly air bag material and gently placed into a shipping box. Our decorative gift boxes double as the shipping box, so they require no outer shipping box. In either case, our protective packaging process meets or exceeds shipping requirements.

Our gifts are automatically insured against loss and damage during transit at no extra cost to you.

While we try our hardest to make sure that doesn't happen, from time to time we may be temporarily out of stock on a basket or a product. If that happens, we will substitute it with an item of equal or greater value.

One of the significant differences between us and other established gift basket providers is our ability to treat each and every customer in an individual and specialized way. To substitute an item, please can call us. We will adjust the price of the basket, if necessary, to reflect the substitution.
