Ottawa Valley Gift Baskets ships only within Canada. Unfortunately customs restrictions prevent us from shipping our cheese products/gift baskets to US or other International addresses. All orders are shipped (originate) from our production facility in Almonte, Ontario. Please refer to our Shipping Information page for delivery times. Our contracted couriers cannot deliver to post office boxes and it is always preferable for an occupant to be present at the delivery address to accept and sign for delivery. For this reason, Ottawa Valley Gift Baskets strongly encourages using a business/work location as the address for delivery of gift baskets/items.
Ottawa Valley Gift Basket's local delivery area includes the following main centres (and all areas in-between), all within 80km of our production facility - downtown Ottawa-Gatineau (Hull), Arnprior, Almonte, Barrhaven, Carleton Place, Carp, Gloucester, Greely, Kanata, Kemptville, Manotick, Merrickville, Metcalfe, Nepean, North Gower, Orleans, Perth, Richmond, Smiths Falls, and Stittsville. Local delivery is provided by Ottawa Valley Gift Baskets and SWIFT Messenger Delivery Systems. Gifts destined for addresses falling outside our local delivery area will be shipped via FedEx Ground. Not sure whether your recipient delivery addresses is within our local delivery area? Give us a call us to inquire - we would hate to have delivery of your gift basket delayed due to insufficient shipping charges.
Ottawa Valley Gift Baskets can arrange local/hand-delivery of gift items on weekends and Holidays for a slightly higher shipping cost - to make a special local delivery request, simply select the LOCAL Special - Weekend Delivery option for shipping at check-out in your on-line shopping session and note any special instructions in the Comments box.
WINE GIFT BASKETS
Can I order wine from Ottawa Valley Gift Baskets and have it delivered with my gift basket order?
No, unfortunately not. Under the provisions of the Liquor Licence Act of Ontario, any person or business entity concerned with the selling and/or delivery of alcohol must be licensed by the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario.
When selling alcohol, the buyer/intended recipient must be identified to ensure that he/she has reached the Age of Majority (19 yrs. old). Since items are ordered on-line and delivery is handled by a third-party (FedEx or SWIFT Messenger Delivery Systems) on behalf of Ottawa Valley Gift Baskets, it would be difficult to ensure that wine was being sold and delivered in compliance with the Liquor Licence Act.
Sparking Apple Cider is a carbonated non-alcoholic beverage made from apple cider and is a great alternative to champagne. Why not add a bottle of HARVEST MOON ORCHARD Sparking Apple Cider or Sparkling Cranberry-Apple Cider to your gift basket?
