uh oh - i need to change or cancel my order!
If you need to cancel or make a change to your order, please send me an email or message ASAP. A change request needs to be received at least 3 days before your required date. If you need to cancel your order, at least 7 days notice is required. Requests made later than these deadlines may incur a small fee to cover some of the costs associated with making your order.
You can also move your order to a new required date and change your custom order. Otherwise, a full or partial refund can be made.
When you receive your Honeybox, leave it at room temperature- don’t put it in the fridge! If you like, you can remove all the sweet treats and place them in an airtight container to preserve freshness. Cookies will be delicious for up to 14 days! Lollies and chocolates will differ.
how should i store my honeybox?
what do i do with the empty box?
Recycle! As long as the box is clean/free from oils it can be recycled with the rest of your household cardboard.
Some alternatives: save it and use it for storage; use as a blank canvas & get creative; shred it and soak it in water and rebuild into a new shape; or give it to a kid (they’ll know what to do).
