How do I change my billing address?

Our payment processors do not allow us to change the billing address once the order has been placed. If you received an order confirmation, then the payment did process, and please note absolutely no receipt or bill info is forwarded on to this address. We can remove the billing address from the packing slip to prevent any confusion, just let us know!

How do I change my shipping address?

If your order has not yet shipped, and you need to change the shipping address simply email us with your order number and new address and we can change that in a jiffy! If the package has already shipped, we can attempt to get the package re-routed. Additional fees may apply with the carrier.

What forms of payment do you accept?

We accept all major credit cards, ApplePay, AmazonPay, ShopPay, PayPal, and Facebook Pay.

PLEASE NOTE: when utilizing one of the above third-party processors, they will change your shipping and billing address. Even though you may have input the correct addresses on the HoneyBug site beforehand, whatever is populated in the payment processor is what gets submitted with your order.

I am ordering a gift, can I include a gift note?

Not a problem at all! If you want several different individual items to be wrapped together, purchase only one gift wrapping and select “wrap your entire cart in one gift box” at your cart page. It’s as easy as that!

What items/orders come in a HoneyBug Box?

Presentation matters to you and to us! That’s why pre-made gift boxes, Build-Your-Own-HoneyBug-Boxes, and gift-wrapped items are packed in our specialty HoneyBug gift box. If you purchased individual items and no wrapping paper, those items will NOT be in a gift box. 


Sometimes items that are purchased are as big as your love for the person you're gifting them to, but fear not! If wrapping was ordered even for the items that don’t fit in a gift box, we take the extra time and care to wrap the items individually. 


Want to double-check? We always appreciate a thorough gifter! Feel free to give us a call and we can provide more Info ASAP.

Build-A-Box Troubleshooting

Why can't I add my custom box to my cart?

This could be because you have not added at least one item from each section. If you have and it's still not loading, reach out to our Customer Care team and we'll be happy to help.

I already added the gift note to my custom box, do I also have to type it in the note section on the cart page?

Nope, one location is fine! This all goes to the same field, so no need to copy & paste into both. We have this options for people who want to gift individual items, pre-made boxes, or missed the option on Build A Box.

The "Checkout" button in my cart is grayed out and I'm unable to pay.

This could be because some items in your bundle are now out of stock. Double check you don't see the words "Out Of Stock, Click here to add another item to your bundle" in red next to any of the items.

If you see that indicator, you will need to replace one of the items in your bundle. So sorry for the hassle - products move quickly on our site!
