Return & Exchange Policy
Here at The Lantern Boutique, we try to keep it simple when it comes to returns, refunds, or item replacements.
If, for some reason, your item(s) arrives damaged, please reach out to us within 5 business days of receiving the product so we can figure out a solution. Solutions could include a refund or we may be able to ship a replacement item. This will be discussed with you when you reach out.
Unfortunately, we do not offer returns or exchanges on custom-created items once the order is in production. Now if they are damaged in shipping please reach out as well so we can come up with a plan.
If the item is not customized you can return it to us for a refund. The buyer is responsible for the shipping costs to send the items back to us. Please note the refund might come back in a different form of payment than how you paid. We will look at all options.
Thank you for shopping at our Home Decor and custom gift shop.
