Shipping frozen beef as a gift
You are welcome to purchase a box as a gift and specify a future shipping date in the comments at checkout. Starting December 2, 2019, we ship our boxes of frozen beef on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. Boxes are shipped overnight, arriving to your recipient on the next day.
We strongly discourage sending a box of frozen beef as a blind gift. Our products are perishable and small-batch, so it is *essential* that the recipient of the gift be aware that they should retrieve the shipment from their doorstep, mail room, garage door, or UPS delivery location AND open the box. The exterior of the box is marked with labels, instructing the recipient to unpack into freezer upon arrival.
Best ways to gift Bravo Steaks
1) A gift certificate allows the recipient to choose their selection and a delivery date when they will be home. We have paper gift certificates enclosed in an envelope in $50 increments and $100 increments and electronic gift certificates sent via email.
2) Contact your gift recipient to see if they will be home on the expected arrival date of the package. At checkout, please specify what day you would like the box to be shipped - the box will ship UPS Next Day on the Monday/Tuesday/Wednesday that you request and it should arrive to the recipient the following day. We ship all beef overnight, direct to the doorstep of the shipping address that you specify.
3) As the gift purchaser, you will receive email updates about shipment status - when the box is prepared at our farm for shipment, when the box is out for delivery on the UPS truck, and when the box is delivered. You could forward these emails to your gift recipient to give them a heads up to retrieve this time-sensitive gift (from you!) on their doorstep.
4) If the gift recipient lives near you, consider having the gift shipped directly to you, the gift giver. Upon delivery to your home, store the box in your freezer until you see the gift recipient in person. Important - the beef needs to be placed into your freezer on the day of delivery; it will not remain frozen in the box for an additional day or two. If you would like advice about adding additional dry ice to the box, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
