About Our Gift Boxes

Do you include a gift note?

Each gift includes a card for you to send a personalized note to the recipient. Once your chosen box is in the shopping cart, add your message in the "Personalize your gift with a note" box. If you need to change or add the note after you check out, email with your order number and what you'd like your note to say.

If your note is blank and we don't hear from you, we will include a simple tag that says who the gift is from.

How are the gift boxes packaged?

All of our gift boxes are packaged in a collapsible magnetic-closure box with crinkle fill, tissue paper, and a sticker to seal it. The box is topped off with a satin bow and your personalized note card. 

How big are the gift boxes?

Our standard boxes are 10 in. x 10 in. x 4.5 in., and our mini boxes are 6 in. x 6 in. x 2.75 in.

Do you include a receipt in the box?

As all of our products are gifts, we do not include receipts in our shipments. You will receive an emailed receipt when you place your order.

Do you take returns?

At this time we are unable to take returns.

My gift arrived damaged. What do I do?

Send us a photo of the broken item to and we will send a replacement! 

About The Bottega
