  • Can I Cancel an Order?



  • How Do I Contact You if I Have Questions?



  • How Quickly Do You Ship Orders?



Your orders are important to us. Whether your sending a birthday gift, a christmas present, or just a few things for yourself, we want to ensure that your items arrive at their destination in the shortest amount of time. We try our best to ship your order within 24 business hours, and sometimes the same day your order is placed!

Business days are Monday through Friday, excluding holidays. Our 24 hour shipping applies to in-stock items only. You will be notified if the items you have purchased are out of stock. If there are questions or issues concerning your order that require your response, then 24 business hour shipping may not apply. Please note that during the busy holiday season from Thanksgiving to Christmas, our orders increase dramatically and we may not always be able to ship your order within the 24 hour period during this time. However, we make every attempt to ensure that you receive your package within the number of days you requested on your order.

  • I Do Not Live in the U.S. Can I Order From You?



If you live outside the contiguous U.S., we may be able to ship items to you depending on the weight and quantity of items you order. Because shipping costs can vary, please contact us, or click the Live Help button at the top of any page.

Please note: Any additional delivery fees such as customs fees are the responsiblity of the buyer. Customs fees vary widely from one country to another, so please check with your customs officials before purchasing if you are unsure of the fees.

  • What Methods of Shipping Do You Offer?



We offer standard shipping via USPS Priority Mail, USPS 1st Class, and FedEx to areas within the contiguous U.S.

We can expedite shipping if you need your items sooner by clicking the Show Me Shipping Choices button below the Choose Your Shipping Method section at checkout. You can request quicker shipping methods in the Comments section at checkout. If the shipping charge is greater than the amount charged for standard shipping (this includes free shipping which is only available on standard shipping),we will notify you of the total shipping amount, and if approved, add the additional cost of shipping to your order.

  • When Will My Order Ship?



Your orders are important to us. Whether your sending a birthday gift, a Christmas present, or just a few things for yourself, we want to ensure that your items arrive at their destination in the shortest amount of time. That's why we created the Shipping Guarantee. We guarantee your order will ship within 24 business hours, or your shipping fee is free! We even strive to ship our orders the same day they are received!

Business days are Monday through Friday, excluding holidays. Shipping guarantees apply to in-stock items only. You will be notified within 24 business hours if the items you have purchased are out of stock. If there are questions or issues concerning your order that require your response, or prior notice has been given on our website that states a delay in shipping (such as inventory, inclement weather, or holiday closings) the 24 business hour shipping guarantee may not apply.

We make every effort to ship your gifts within 24 business hours, however during the holiday season (Thanksgiving through Christmas), we receive high volumes of orders. Due to this busy time, we cannot always guarantee your order will be shipped within 24 business hours, but we will guarantee your order will ship within 72 business hours.

  • Do You Ship to Post Office Boxes?



Yes! Delivery to P.O. boxes must be through the U.S. mail, and cannot be delivered via Federal Express.

  • How Do I Track My Order?



Shipment tracking is provided on all orders that ship via USPS Priority Mail or FedEx. If you have an RCG account, you can log in using the My Account link at the top of any Rock Creek Gifts.com web page to view tracking information. If you do not have an account with us, you can use the tracking number link included in your shipment confirmation email. Once you have your tracking number, you can visit the appropriate shipping carrier website (Fedex.com or USPS.com) to track your package.

  • What if I Refuse to Accept a Shipment?



Shipments that are refused will be subject to a $25.00 restocking fee. If you refuse an order that included free shipping, you will be charged $7.99 for freight, plus the $25.00 restocking fee.

  • I'm Sending a Gift, How Will You Package My Shipment?



If you enter a gift message in the Gift Message field at checkout, or if the Ship To name is different from the Bill To name, we will treat your shipment as a gift.

Each gift we ship is covered with seasonal-colored gift tissue, and topped with your gift message if provided. We also include a packing slip underneath the gift tissue, which does not include pricing information.

  • Do You Charge Sales Tax?



Sales tax only applies to Virginia residents. All other states are tax-free.
