Due to popular demand, we now offer a gift certificate for our hand painted bibles. This is an ideal gift for last minute shoppers who still want to give that personalized, custom, and one of a kind gift! It also makes fantastic gift for someone you really want to get a bible for, but you know they would prefer to design their new bible exactly how they are envisioning it.
Available as a printable designed for easy printing at home, or as physical gift certificate that gets shipped to you. The printable will come with the information you provide and the order number already filled in. If you want to write the names yourself, please leave me a note at checkout. The physical certificate comes hand lettered with the names of your choosing and packaged in a lovely petal envelope. Simply select which option you would prefer at checkout, and provide the names exactly as you would like them written in the "notes to seller" section along with the email you would like the final file sent to if you opt for the printable. If you are sending it directly to the recipient let me know and I can include a short message from you.
You can find all of the information about my bibles and how they are made here:
Please note that this gift certificate is valid only in my Etsy shop, and it is only redeemable here. This is not an Etsy Gift Card. The gift certificate is good only for the purchase of a bible, not redeemable for cash or any other product.
I accept payment through Paypal and with credit cards directly through Etsy. Payment is due at the time of purchase. Checks and money orders are not acceptable forms of payment at this time. Thank you for your understanding!
*IMPORTANT* please make sure you have the correct address listed with your etsy name. I ship to the address listed, and can not be held responsible for lost packages due to incorrect information.
Shipping both domestically and internationally is via the USPS, with the exception of certain large items that are shipped domestically via FedEx. Any and all international custom fees or dues are the responsibility of the buyer. All items are packaged carefully (and always with an extra goodie or two!) with as much love as the items themselves! Tracking information is always included, but please remember I have as much control over the USPS and their tracking system as you do!
Individual processing and shipping times are noted in each individual listing. If you need an item by a specific date, please be sure to contact me BEFORE purchase. All "ship by" dates are estimates and if the timeline changes you will be notified.
When you receive the shipping notification email that means we have printed your label in the The Hipster Housewife studio - the first of many steps to get it out the door! From the time we print your label to the time USPS or UPS posts the first tracking data, your order is in a weird grey area where the computers can't say precisely where on the journey it is. If we were a bigger, fancier company, we would probably call it "processing time."
The weird grey area is not weird or grey, it's our happy office. We are dancing and singing and putting stickers on your packages. We just love you guys so much! Once the order is on its way, the tracking updates. This can take up to 3 business days. If there are extenuating circumstances you will be notified ASAP.
Thank you so much for your patience as we fill your orders, big and small, with great love. We are so thankful for your role in this ministry!

Due to the unique handmade nature of my wares I try to be very clear in each listing as to the details of each item, and in order to best serve our customers refunds and exchanges are offered on a case by case basis.
