Frequently Asked Questions
What is BeachDayGifts.com?
Great question! Beach Day Gifts & More is a shop that collectively features all of my beach photographs, calendars and digital designs!
Who am I? I'm Chris! I've been a beach lover since the day I was born -- at just 2 weeks old, thanks to my parents, I was on the North Wildwood NJ beach for the first time! Over the years, I have fallen in love with photography, particularly while enjoying and wandering around coastal towns. I have also started creating digital designs and artwork, both personally as well as collaborating with local designers. I started this site as a way to share all of this art with others who share the same passion for all of the great beach towns we have!
This site also functions as the new home of various shops that existed individually, such as the Wildwood Pizza Tour gift shop and ShoreCalendars.com.

Shipping is currently only to U.S.A. and Canadian addresses.
Will I be charged tax?

Apparel, mugs and pillows may be shipped using a different method.
Orders being shipped to Canada will receive options at check-out for shipping method.
How long will it take to receive my order?
We ship as quickly as we can! Most orders ship within 1 to 3 business days, but we're perfectionists, many of our items are made-to-order, and we occasionally need an extra day or two to get your order just right.
Some items, particularly Wall Calendars, are sometimes offered on pre-order -- these items will ship according to the timeline provided on the item's product page.
Mugs, apparel and pillows are made-to-order and fulfilled by external companies. Expect longer shipping times for these items (3 or 4 weeks is often common).
Once in the mail, most items shipped to the U.S.A. are in-transit for 1 to 5 business days.
International shipments to Canada will require additional time for delivery, which varies depending on shipping method selected at check-out.
Is tracking / shipping information provided for my order?

However, one exception is for orders that only contain stickers or magnets. These orders are typically shipped via standard USPS mail, which does not have an option for tracking.
