Greatest gifts ever
"I have used red envelope for the type of gift you wont find anywhere else. Everything has always been great. No complaints here. I hate to see them go."
"I have ordered multiple items from Red Envelope over the past 3 yrs with no issue. They were mostly personalized items, which to me would require even more attention for correct product delivery. I am hopeful the site comes back online, as I want to re-order a few things. "
"I have ordered from RedEnvelope on multiple occasions and have never been disappointed. The gifts I have ordered are ones that have been personalized and/or custom-made and I have not experienced any delays or issues that could not be resolved with a quick e-mail to customer service. While my experience seems to be 1 in 100, I definitely think RedEnvelope is worth a shot to anybody looking for unique gifts."
"I ordered two simple, inexpensive items from the "last chance on a a great sale" for Christmas. Of course, they were not available without paying a high price for expedited shipping. Decent deals, though, so okay - January it is. Happy New Year presents! But during checkout, I was charged for "RUSH" shipping. I emailed to ask why, got one rep who "refunded" shipping which made my order total go UP! Sent the email thread to corporate - I guess they apologize with a $15 credit code for next time.... Only what about this shopping experience would make that a logical thing for me to do? They have cool gifts, but who needs to chase bogus shipping charges? Won't use the code, won't shop there again. Buyer beware."

"Red Envelope is the WORST ONLINE VENDOR and should be shut down. For TWO YEARS in a row, they have failed to provide me with a red scarf to match red gloves and hat previously purchased. I have spent HUNDREDS at Red Envelope, I will NEVER buy from them again. They have refused to refund my money and they were sold out of many, many items BEFORE Black Friday. They are grossly overpriced and have TERRIBLE customer service."
"You can't use more than one gift coupon, prices are exorbitantly high and you can't cancel the order even within 24 hr of placing the order."
"Much like some of the other reviews on here, my wife had a terrible experience using RedEnvelope. She ordered me a personalized Christmas gift on November 26th and was given a delivery date of no later than December 17th. When December 17th passed by, she called and was told it should be there the next day. When it didn't arrive on the 18th she was told not to worry that it would definitely be there by Christmas. She called again on December 23rd when we still hadn't received it and was told there was a problem with the order and the new delivery date was January 17th. Almost two entire months after the order date and nearly a month after Christmas. She had to cancel the order 2 days before Christmas and was not offered any sort of compensation for her troubles. I'm assuming since it was a personalized gift and they didn't try to get her to take it at a discount that the item had not even been printed yet. I e-mailed them right after Christmas when my wife told me what had happened to voice my displeasure and never heard back. We will never use them again."
"I ordered Christmas gifts about a month ago. They said they would be here a few days ago, yet I have yet to receive them. I emailed customer service and they said they would send my items out. I just received another email informing me they are unable to ship all of the items in my order and they would cancel them from my order. The items they cancelled were Christmas gifts. How do they expect me to order new, personalized, thoughtful gifts in the next 4 days for people? I won't do business with them again, and I discourage you to do business with them either."
"I just want to warn prospective customers, redenvelope will give all kinds of offers on their website but when you get to the cart, those offers go away with "conditions". For instance currently they are offering 30% off plus free shipping and guaranteeing delivery by Christmas or 12/24. However, when you to to make your purchase only of offer is honored and to have that delivery by Christmas you are charged Rush fees plus Monday delivery fees!I ordered with plenty of time (12/13/12) to have avoided rush and Monday delivery but I was still charged those fees and told when I called that only one offer at a time stood and who was I to expect the 25% off which was then offered PLUS free shipping (even though it was offered with all orders over 49$ and my order was $250!). The customer agent actually said - how could I expect the store to offer free shipping plus 25%?I told him that essentially all online stores offer free shipping and especially since they offered it, they should honor that. I then made a customer complaint to which they deducted part of my shipping but still charging me.Shameful is what this is.Now to top it all off, my order has not even shipped yet and it is 12/19 ... 6 days since my order was placed.These items have to be pretty darn special for me to ever shop here again and I just provide this as warning to other customers."
"Awful. Ordered a bunch of items that were to be delivered over a week ago its now taken them 2 days to tell me they are still tracking them and here come the holidays. I have no gifts. Im flabbergasted that a business is run like this "
"I have ordered from them before, as well as my families' orders and we're always so surprised at the great quality. Usually it's even better in person than in the magazine or online photos. Flowers are always fresh too. Their web site ratings and reviews on their products are spot-on too. "
"Red Envelope obviously does not care about customer service. I ordered several items, confirmed the order myself and then when I checked my e-mail, they sent me a confirmation which was not correct. I called them back but they said they can not do anything about it unless it was within 5 minutes of the time I received the email. The manager (I think her name was Crystal) was very rude, condescending, unprofessional and could not care less about helping to resolve the problem. "
"I ordered Pearls Lariat from Red Envelope to be delivered to my moms office for Mothers Day. She opened the Beautiful Red Gift Box only to find my personal note and NO GIFT in side the box! I will NEVER trust Red Envelope to handle my moms special day or anyones for that matter. I can only imagine the pain and confusion she must have felt while opening this in front of her friends at work. I'll never forgive Red Envelope for embarassing me and my mom."
"Very decepitve advertising. They sent out a coupon code. I bought a product with the code, they shipped it toward my house. Then they contacted UPS with the package on the truck and retracted the product saying the coupon was an accident. They now have some of my money and I have to worry about a refund of a product I didn't receive."
