Questions & Answers

Who can I send Something in the Mail to?

Anyone! You can send a gift to yourself, your spouse, your friends, your grandparents, your children, your boss, your dentist, your teacher, your mailman, someone you've never met, or someone you want to meet. The choice is yours!

What types of items will my recipient receive in the mail?

We have a wide selection of items to send. Gifts range from gadgets to electronics, outdoor accessories, clothing, items for pets, children’s toys, and much more. We will always send unique and appropriate gifts, and our optional survey will help us choose a gift that’s just right for the recipient.

SomethingintheMail will always try to send something that your recipient is going to love. We’ll never send copyrighted or illegal products, but may send adult directed products if a “gag gift” is expressed as an interest within the optional pre-purchase survey.

When should my recipient expect delivery?

SomethingintheMail will ship your gift within three to five business days of your order date and will confirm shipment via email. In the interest of making sure you receive great items, at a fraction of the cost you would pay in stores, we will generally be using the least expensive shipping options. With that being said, we'll make sure your order is sent as fast as possible, so you have less time to wait before receiving your something in the mail.

How much is shipping? Do you ship internationally?

At this time, we only offer shipping within Canada and the U.S.A. If you're outside North America and want to use our site, email us, we might be able to work something out with you. To ensure you’re getting a great deal, our shipping charges are as low as we can make them, and unlike some other sites, the charges will never exceed the cost of the gift being sent.

How will my recipient's package arrive?

Just like our name says, your gift will arrive in the mail. We'll be using your country's national mail service (USPS, Canada Post).

Can I cancel my order?

If we have not shipped your order and sent you confirmation of shipment, your order can be cancelled at no cost to you. We hope that you'll come back and place an order when you're ready.

What is your refund policy?

Due to the nature of receiving a random gift, you have an opportunity to ensure the gift will be loved (by filling out the short survey), all sales are final. If the gift received isn't as good as you’d hope for, it can always be re-gifted to someone who can use it. It feels great to give a gift, trust us, it’s what we do!

What if my product arrives broken?

If your something is broken or damaged during shipping, contact us, and we'll work with you to replace it at no cost.
