All prices listed on the Michigan Travels Gourmet Specialties web site are in US dollars. All transactions are processed in US dollars.


Whatever your needs and budget, we have suggestions! We've created many delightfully unique, custom gifts through the years.  From single give-away favors – to - over-the-top custom $300 gift baskets, let us show you how creative we can be!


Corporate branding, themes, holidays, and occasions can be utilized in many different ways to create customized gifts. From single jars of fruit preserves with a corporate logo on the label – to – your company's logo placed on the gift basket – to – special touches throughout the gift. The gifts suggested here are only a few examples of what we are able to do.

Ordering Information

Order gifts 24 hours per day, 7 days a week through our secured website. We accept all major credit cards through Paypal.  Telephone orders may also be placed during daytime and evening hours.

Single orders are usually ready for shipping or delivery within one business day, but please order early - especially at busy holiday times, or for large orders.

Shipping and delivery

Local hand-delivery and shipping are available, but please allow enough time. Orders are usually delivered or shipped within 24 hours unless otherwise requested by the buyer.  At peak holiday times, extra time may be necessary to process your order.

Gifts shipped via UPS Ground generally arrive within 3-5 Business Days unless they are shipped to the west coast, which requires 5-7 days. 

UPS also offers 3-day, 2-day, and next-day air shipping services. These are very expensive options, often costing more than the gift itself.  The cost of air services is based on the shipping box size, and gift baskets use large shipping boxes.  Our gourmet gift boxes are much less expense to ship via air.

We ship to locations only within the United States via UPS and USPS.  Alaska and Hawaii destinations are shipped only by UPS Air or USPS.
Approximate delivery times are listed below:
  • UPS Ground
Day-definite delivery typically in 1 to 5 days.
  • UPS 3-Day Select
Delivery by the end of the 3rd business day 
  • UPS Next Day Air
Next business day delivery by 10:30 a.m., 12:00 noon, or end of day, depending on destination

We are not responsible for delays in shipping due to incorrect address information provided by the customer.  Incorrect address information requires additional postage, and will be the responsibility of the customer.  Be certain to include the full and complete address, including apartment or suite numbers.

Large Orders

Large orders require a 50% non-refundable deposit.

Damage during Shipment

If a package is damaged during shipment, we must be notified within 24 hours in order to advise the shipper. The package must be retained with all products intact for inspection.


Substitutions may be necessary for components of your gift based on availability. Any substitution made will be of equal or greater value and quality.

Chocolate items in our gifts may be replaced with non-chocolate gourmet items of equal or greater value between May and September, depending on heat and humidity. 


Your satisfaction is guaranteed. If you or your recipients are not 100% satisfied, let us know and we will make it right with you.

Secure On-Line Transactions

At Michigan Travels Gourmet Specialties, your privacy and the security of your personal and credit card information is extremely important to us.

Your orders are encrypted using industry standard SSL (Secure Socket Layer) encryption. Secure Socket Layer (SSL) is a technology developed by Netscape and adopted by all vendors producing related Web software. SSL technology is based on the "public/private key" encryption model - the same technology used to protect nuclear missile codes. It negotiates and employs the essential functions of mutual authentication, data encryption, and data integrity for secure transactions.

Contact information entered on the checkout screen is encrypted (scrambled) between you and our server ensuring it is kept from prying eyes. Once it arrives at our server it is locked away where only we can get to it.

Credit card transactions are handled in real-time through a secure gateway; therefore, that information is not stored on our servers at all.
