Everyone hates to be pushed to buy Christmas gifts to early. I'm no different. But it's more important for me to let my customers know that they need to plan ahead if they are going to order from us to make sure that order arrives on time. It seems like every year the push to get things into the post comes earlier and earlier. This is just a long way of saying please order early and allow plenty of time for delivery to avoid disappointment. I don't have any elves in my workshop, just three lazy cats.
