Christmas Order Information
Thank you for choosing Month Club Store for your Christmas gift giving. The following information describes how we process Christmas orders. If you have a special request or additional questions, let us know.
Christmas Gift Notifications
Shipments - Keeping the Gift a Surprise - All Christmas shipments and notifications will be delivered with the intent of keeping the gift a surprise for the recipient. The return address will list the delivery as from "MCS" rather then "Month Club Store" and a "Don't Open Till..." message will be placed prominently on the delivery. PLEASE NOTE: if not obvious from your personalized greeting or order notes, we will NOT handle it as a holiday order.
December start month: When we receive an order on or
before December 14th with a holiday greeting (your personalized
message) and a December start month, the gift message will be delivered with the initial month's package between the 16th and the 24th unless you instruct us otherwise.
January start month: When we receive an order with a holiday greeting (your personalized message) and a January start month, gift notifications will be sent to the recipient prior to the 25th with a note introducing the gift and stating that their monthly shipments will begin in January. For orders placed earlier, we will hold these greetings until the week of the 19th so that they arrive closer to Christmas (unless you instruct us otherwise).
Email gift notifications for Christmas will be sent out on Christmas Eve (Saturday, December 24th) at approximately noon CST. Email gift notifications for orders placed after this time, will be sent on Monday, December 26th.
Personalized gift cards for orders received with a non-holiday personalized message (such as birthday, wedding, thank you, etc.) will be sent immediately (as usual). Orders received with no personalized message (for instance - if you are purchasing for yourself) will not receive a greeting.
Hanukkah: Since Hanukkah (Chanuka) begins on December 24th this year, we will handle orders for Hanukkah the same way we handle Christmas orders as stated above.
