          Can I choose the items that I receive?
          No, we'd like this to be an experience that the recipient looks forward to, thus, we'd like to keep the exact items a surprise. You should still have an idea of the categories you'll be receiving if you refer back to the box description.

           

          When will I receive my box?

          We will send you a confirmation on when you should expect your box to arrive. For non-subscription purchases we try to ship your box within 7 days from ordering, most of the time boxes go out the next day. Please allow 3-5 days for your box to arrive after the shipping date.

            

          What are my shipping options?

          We currently offer a flat rate shipping fee of $4.99 per box to all 50 states, military addresses APO and FPO, and certain US territories (Guam, Northern Mariana Islands, Puerto Rico, US Virgin Islands). We typically ship using USPS. Please allow 3-5 days for your box to arrive after the shipping date for US addresses and a few extra days for orders going to locations outside of the United States. We will send your tracking number via email.

          If you're sending more than 5 boxes to the same address please reach out to us at kumusta@filiflavors.com and we may be able to save you some money on your shipping fees.

             

          Can I send someone a gift?

          Absolutely! We can ship the box directly to your recipient so less hassle on your part. We're sure they're going to love receiving a "pasalubong" or care package. You can also purchase a gift card from our store if you're not sure what their physical address is.

          Make sure you leave your message at the checkout window so we can add it in a small card.

           

          Do you have social media?

          Yes. Please follow us on Instagram and Facebook, our handle is @Filiflavors. Please feel free to tag us when you post about your box. Use the hashtags #Filiflavors and #UnboxTheFili.

           

          What is #Filikultura?

          We post Tagalog/Filipino translations, slang, and random cultural tidbits on our social media accounts. We’ve branded it with #Filikultura, hopefully to impart a little bit of culture with context from someone who has lived in the Philippines. Check it out to learn more about Tagalog/Filipino words.

           

          What are the special edition magnets included in each box?

          • Inspired by our #Filikultura posts on our social media
          • Each magnet is printed with a Pinoy term, slang, expression, or fun facts about Filipino culture
          • Examples: Kumusta?, Salamat, Mahal Kita, etc.
