Our shipments do not include a receipt, so you do not need to worry about prices being included in your gift shipment.

I can't log in to my account! What do I do?
This is definitely frustrating – we understand.
Here are some possible solutions to try out:
1. Make sure you’re typing in the right email address and password. You might not have registered with your primary address.
2. Try not to copy and paste the email and password, this sometimes adds an extra “space” into the password that you aren’t able to see.
3. If you can’t remember your password or it’s just not working, use the FORGOT YOUR PASSWORD link on the login page to have it reset and sent to you.
4. If you still can't log in, please contact us at info[at] and we'll take a look!
