Around the Clock at Santa’s Workshop
Whether you start rocking out to Christmas carols weeks before Halloween or you’re a strict after-Thanksgiving traditionalist, there’s no denying that the holiday season comes on fast. Here at Santa’s Workshop (aka the Kristen Baird Studio) our elves (aka me) are already working around the clock creating gorgeous handcrafted gifts to make your holiday dreams come true.
If your sugarplum dreams are of sugarplum rings, there are a couple important dates to keep in mind.
Commissioned for Christmas - Monday, October 3rd
It takes our elves some serious time to carefully conceive, create, and design a one-of-a-kind piece of art. I work closely with my clients to capture their unique stories and visions. So, if you have your heart set on a custom design for Christmas, I highly recommend that you plan ahead. The final day for guaranteed Christmas delivery on custom orders is Monday, October 3rd. Yes, you heard that right.
Any requests received after that point will be considered on a first-come-first served basis.
Sparkle Surprise Box - Friday, November 18 - Sunday, November 20
There’s nothing like the anticipation of finding a neatly wrapped gift under the tree, the magic of the moment when you untie the ribbon and find the perfect holiday surprise nestled inside. Our Sparkle Surprise Box is the epitome of this moment: a shimmering surprise selected just for you.
Plus, because I’m in the giving spirit, it comes at a reduced price. As many of you know, I never discount my work - each piece is a completely handmade work of art. So don’t miss this little bit of holiday magic! Mark your calendars now and go take a peek...
Thanksgiving - Tuesday, November 22st - Friday, November 25rd
Happy Thanksgiving everyone! We’ll be closed for a few days as we participate in the annual Turkey-eating contest. (Actually, I’m more of an “all the sides” person myself!)
Personalized Cutoff - Monday, December 12th
Have a ring that needs resizing or a message you want engraved? Today is the final day to order personalized or customized jewelry. I can hear those reindeer stomping on the roof and they are eager to take off! Hurry before they fly away!
Ready to Ship Cutoff - Friday, December 16th
Hear those sleigh bells? That’s the sound of Santa leaving the station! Today is the absolute final day for guaranteed Christmas delivery on our “Ready to Ship” pieces. The post office is packed this time of year, so the sooner we can get your gift out the door and into Santa’s big red sack the better.
Moving forward, we highly recommend opting for expedited shipping. However, there are no guarantees after today. Better act now than risk getting left out in the snow!
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year - Wednesday, December 21st - Tuesday, January 3
I’ll be watching Hallmark Christmas movies by the fire, cuddling up with a cup of hot chocolate, and spending time with my kiddos. I genuinely hope you’re doing the same - or whatever makes your heart glow this time of year. From my heart to yours, have a very Merry Christmas and a joyous Holiday Season.
Post-Holiday Recovery - Wednesday, January 4rd - Friday, January 13th
Woo-ee Santa’s Workshop is a mess after Christmas! The elves (you know who) will need a little time to tidy up. We’re working behind the scenes to double-check our inventory, polish up our gemstones, and get our tools in working order. Stay tuned…
2023 Opening - Monday, January 16th
We’re back! The hustle and bustle of the holidays may be over, but there are plenty of wonderful reasons to treat yourself and your loved ones: birthdays, anniversaries, graduations, or simply because you deserve it. Wait a minute - isn’t Valentine’s Day just around the corner?
