August might seem too soon to start thinking about the holiday season, but for a small handmade business, August sometimes doesn't seem soon enough! The holiday season is a very busy time for fulfilling orders, in person events, and our own personal family holiday commitments.
The holiday season is also a very popular time for custom orders. We love custom orders! Over the past years we've made new animals we never made before as ornaments and hoops. Here is a seahorse and a zebra hoop we've made.
We've added embroidery to the back of animals we already offer, like Beauregard the Hippo below. We've also changed the color scheme on designs we currently offer, like Errol the Pteranodon to create a perfect gift.
Our most popular custom work is ornaments based off your pet photos.
If you are thinking about Squshies for the holiday season, in stock or custom, please order early! We do sell out of animals during the holiday season and there is a limit to how many custom orders we can complete in time for a holiday arrival. Also keep in mind that the holidays are also the busiest time of the year for the post office too!
