Please check your order carefully before signing for it.

We only order and ship brand new items (unless otherwise stated on the product page), likewise we cannot take goods back "into stock" from customers. USA origin goods can be returned, but have to get back to the USA within 30 days of your original order date. The store will only refund the value of the item while all other costs including shipping, VAT, duties and our service fees are non refundable. You will also need to pay to send the goods back to the USA. The returning of goods is usually very expensive and results in a refund value far less than what is originally paid, and in your interest is discouraged.

The Gift Store will only accept the return of any expired or damaged goods that you inspected during the course of the delivery and found these goods to have expired or to be damaged.
