Order Your Custom Bobblehead Gifts Early for Christmas and Reap the Rewards!
It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Ok, so maybe Christmas is still a few months away but the holiday season for custom bobbleheads starts early. Custom bobbleheads are different from many other gifts because of their personal and unique nature. You can’t go to the store and pick one up a week before Christmas. These products are hand-crafted and it takes time to meet each individual’s specifications. For example, the standard sculpting and shipping process usually takes around 6-8 weeks. Most bobblehead sites offer faster sculpting and shipping options but they’ll cost you more.
It becomes more difficult to gauge sculpting and delivery times around the holidays due to an abundance of custom bobblehead orders. If you’re giving someone a personalized bobblehead for Christmas, we recommend ordering the figure in September or October. Here are three benefits to ordering early:
1) Discounts - Save Money!
Often we have special discounts to purchase early - like "Christmas in July" or other savings opportunities. Check the banner on the homepage for any specials, or ask your account manager if there is a special!
2) Zero or Reduced “Rush” Fees
The longer you wait, the faster we will have to sculpt your bobblehead to have it ready in time for Christmas. If you wait to place your order in mid-November or early December, it’ll cost you $60-90 more. This extra charge is known as a “rush” fee. Eliminate this fee by ordering your gift in September or October. (See our Holiday Shipping Schedule for more details)
3) More Available Proofing Time
Custom bobbleheads are very personal gifts, often representing someone special in your life. You want it to be perfect and we want to help you make it perfect. Ordering early allows more time for proofing and making changes to your bobblehead. Maybe the hair color’s not quite right or the eyes need to be bigger. The process is meant to be fun, not stressful, but getting the doll “just perfect” can take time. Remember, this is a gift so never settle for good enough.
4) Peace of Mind
If you’re ordering a custom bobblehead as a Christmas present, you need it under the Christmas tree in time. Why take any chances? Why risk having your special someone wake up Christmas morning with no present? The holidays are hectic enough so order your bobblehead early and sleep easier at night.
Save yourself time, money, and sanity by ordering all holiday bobblehead gifts in September and October. Procrastination could ultimately lead to a Christmas fit for a Grinch.
