The Stellar Story

frequently asked questions

I am buying a box as a gift and I do not want a receipt or any visible prices.

The Stellar Story is an online gifting concierge service and we believe that most of our boxes are purchased almost always as gifts therefore we never include receipts or packing slips/inventory summary sheets inside any of our packaging. You will have all that information sent to you electronically once you complete your purchase on our website We handle our products carefully and we do not alter them by removing or crossing labels as we prefer to keep the packaging intact and beautiful. Most of the products we use to create the gift boxes do not have price tags. Occasionally, some manufacturers print the price on the items however this is a rare occurrence and when it happens the price is small, elegant and subtle.

I like a gift in your Ready-to-Gift Collection but I would like to pair it with a different gift tag, is it possible?

Definitely! At checkout, you will have the option to select a different gift tag than the one featured in the picture.
