Top shop for gifts.

Buyers bought gifts from this shop and gave them 5-star reviews!

Announcement    🏡 Shop will only be open until December 8 — or until the very last order has been processed and mailed out.
💌 My processing time is around 2 days, or longer depending on the load of orders that I have. Once I'm done with an order, I mail the package the very next day. However, Canada Post has been receiving higher than normal peak season volumes. So when you order from my shop, please keep in mind that actual delivery time depends on the courier service. You could receive your order somewhere between 1-2 weeks on average from when I’ve mailed off your package.
📮 Made-to-order items sometimes need a few days to make (depending on the item, its quantity, and my load of orders). I am also open to wholesale and special requests such as custom pouches, tote bags, bookmarks and cards, so please feel free to message me and I will try my best to accommodate you. Please note though that my wholesale prices do not include shipping costs.
🛑 US Residents: Please be informed that Standard Mail (snail mail for paper products) are not tracked and USPS handles them once they’ve been handed over at the border by Canada Post — when you can, please refer to USPS timelines. However if you want a faster method, you can upgrade your shipping plan to either Small Packet (no tracking) or Tracked Packet (includes tracking).
📝 And if you are one of my lovely customers, please leave a review about your experience. Thank you! :)

About PastelrainCreations

Sales 842
On Etsy since 2018

I have shown interest in arts and crafts since I was young. It started with friendship rings made of seed beads which then evolved to jewelries made of chain, semi-precious stones and glass beads. Eventually, I made a small business out of my hobby as time went on and sold my creations online and in craft markets. But at some point in life of every crafter, we shift our focus and priority to something more important.

Fast-forward to the present, I am now a proud Etsy seller and I have expanded my creations from handmade fashion jewelries to unique crafts and bookish items. It was not a smooth ride in the beginning but my shop is now being noticed and I could not be more grateful! I’m proud to say that my unique creations are the result of my wild imagination, passion and hard work. 💕

Frequently asked questions
Shipping Address

🤓 Please double check all the details that you provide when ordering. It is very important to provide the correct and complete address to avoid having shipments getting lost. I won't be responsible to any loss or damage if the order has been shipped to a wrong address provided. If the package gets returned to me, I can ship it to the correct address but a new shipping fee needs to be paid.

Customs Fees

🤓 The duty/tax free limit for personal importations vary from country to country. I declare the price of my items on the customs form without your paid shipping. To know if your order is exempted from your country's tax or if you have any other questions about duties, please contact your local Customs authority .

Sales Tax

🤓 I do not collect sales tax. However, there are rules in certain countries/states/provinces that require ETSY to collect them and they remit the taxes to those countries/states.

Packaging

🤓 I do not provide gift-wrapping services. However, I pack all of my orders like I’m giving them as gifts. According to set/size, I place my products in paper sleeves or cellophane bags, both you can actually reuse/recycle. I then lay them all flat and wrap everything in a gift tissue paper and/or bubble wrap (depending on the order), then put them in a polymailer so you don’t have to worry about your package getting wet when left outside by the postman.

I don’t include receipts in the package since they’re sent electronically by Etsy but listing the items & prices on the customs form is mandatory for int’l mails.

Just like my products, I make most of my packaging from scratch so I put a lot of care into keeping your whole order safe. 💕

Shipments Within Canada

🇨🇦 All shipments are done via Canada Post. I send them as Lettermail (postage/snail mail) but you also have the option to upgrade to tracked/expedited shipping (comes with additional cost).

Coast-to-coast shipments take 10-15 business days to be delivered based on experience. I suggest upgrading if you really need your order ASAP.

IMPORTANT: Canada Post has been receiving higher than normal peak season volumes. So when you order from my shop, please keep in mind that there could be delays and that the actual delivery is Canada Post's responsibility. I have lost money in the past replacing and refunding orders only to find out that the original packages were still being delivered. Please be patient and considerate during this pandemic.

Shipments to the USA

🇺🇸 All shipments are done via Canada Post. I send PAPER PRODUCTS as Lettermail (postage/snail mail) at a fixed rate. If you are looking into purchasing planner charms, bracelets, faux leather bookmarks or other items not made of paper, the shipping plan is automatically changed to Small Packet (no tracking). You also have the option to upgrade your shipping plan to Tracked Packet (includes tracking).

Shipments headed to the East coast or to states next to the border ship the fastest. I've noticed that delivery usually just takes within a week from when I have mailed off the package. As for farther areas, shipments take about 2-4 weeks to be delivered. I suggest upgrading to Expedited if you really need your order ASAP.

Shipments Outside North America

📮 All shipments are done via Canada Post. I send them as Small/Regular Parcel for orders outside Canada at a fixed rate. I buy shipping labels and fill out the customs form online, so the quantity and price of the order is stated and shown outside the package along with the details of the recipient. You also have the option to upgrade to tracked/expedited shipping but it comes with additional cost. Once a package arrives at the country of destination, the delivery speed will depend on how fast it will be released by Customs and be delivered by the local postal service.

Jewelry Care Instructions

🤓 Caring for Silver-Plated Jewelry:
-Sulfur causes silver to tarnish or turn black. Minimize jewelry exposure to the air and humidity by storing it in separate plastic air tight resealable bags when not in use.
-Remove the jewelry when you're in the spa, sleeping, swimming, exercising, or when doing other physically strenuous activities (avoid contact with sweat, moisture and humidity)
-Avoid contact with chemicals - cleaners, perfumes, body oils, etc.
-Do not use dips, polishes or pastes on your jewelry. Polishes and pastes are abrasive and harsh and they can remove too much of the plating.
-When polishing, use polishing cloths but remember not to over-polish. You're done when your jewelry appears shiny and lustrous!

Paper Bookmark Care Instructions

🤓 My paper bookmarks are based on my own idea and unlike any that you've seen out there. I subscribe and pay to be able to use images for my crafts, then I edit them to suit my design needs so you end up getting unique and original results. As they are made of layered paper and are not laminated, it is highly advised to handle them with care as you would with any other bookmarks. Because of the intricate cuts and the material that they're made of, they should not be bent, folded nor get wet.
