DAMAGED PARCELS Your order will always be packaged with care. Please open with care. We do not recommended opening with sharp objects. Gentle Nest cannot be held responsible for damage incurred from opening your parcel. If you received your parcel damaged and your parcel was shipped expedited, you are insured for up to $100 (or more if requested/paid by customer). Please contact us with a description plus images of the problem and we will open a ticket with Canada Post to investigate. 

INCORRECT/INCOMPLETE ADDRESS Please always check if you entered the correct and complete shipping address. Once a parcel has been shipped we cannot alter the shipping address. Customers are responsible for all shipping fees if a parcel is undeliverable due to an incorrect or incomplete shipping address and the error did not occur on our side.

GREEN EFFORTS Whenever possible we ship in recycled boxes/packaging in an effort to reduce our environmental impact. All receipts are electronic, we do not print a paper copy to ship with your order. 

PROCESSING TIME Your order will most often be shipped the same day or within 3 business days. You will be notified via email once your order has shipped. We ship via Canada Post. Gentle Nest cannot be held responsible for postal delays beyond the estimated delivery times given. Orders ship once complete. Any order containing a special order or pre-order or out-of-stock item will be held until the item is in stock and everything can be shipped together. If you wish to receive an in-stock item right away, please order separately. 

PRICING All shipping prices are in Canadian dollars. Any taxes/customs/brokerage fees on all United States orders and returns are the sole responsibility of the purchaser.
