Christmas is officially less than three months away as of this week and that means it’s time to start thinking about shopping for the holidays! It’s never too early to get gifts for your friends, family members, and loved ones. Don’t wait until the last minute and have to scramble to get something impersonal.
At Christmas Mouse you can order gifts up until about December 8th, 2017 and you should have your package arrive before Christmas anywhere in the lower 48, barring severe weather events or other unforeseen circumstances like carrier delays. If you live near Virginia where our warehouse is located, you’ll have an additional week or so to get your order placed in time. Whether you’d prefer ornaments, decorations, or collectibles, we’ve got you covered! And if you want to save some money, be sure to check our two clearance sections.
If you’re planning to buy gifts locally or have them delivered to your house and then take them with you on a plane, be sure to keep in mind the TSA rules for air travel as certain items like snow globes aren’t allowed (due to their liquid content). You’ll also want to keep in mind shipping times. If you live on the west coast for example, your order will take longer to arrive from the east coast and vice versa. If you’re making a purchase from outside the U.S., you’ll need to order even earlier as customs can delay packages sometimes due to random searches and other security measures.
Most people wait until after Thanksgiving to do their Christmas shopping and usually will go out on weekends to do so. You can beat the rush and the crowds by getting a head start now and by ordering online or heading out on a weekday if possible. Christmas Mouse has eight retail stores in coastal Virginia, North Carolina, & South Carolina. We’ll also be on hand at the Southern Christmas Show in Charlotte, NC in November, so be sure to stop by and say hello and find some great gifts for everyone on your list!
