Possible Holiday Shipping Delay - The best time to shop for Christmas gifts is NOW!

Key points:

  • 3 improvements from Trending Custom for Christmas 2021 to ensure everyone is “Happy Customer”
  • Holiday shipping delay - a result from USPS’s new shipping policy
  • Best time to shop for Christmas 2021: NOW!

  • It's almost November, and Christmas is just around the corner. Christmas is without a doubt the most wonderful holiday of the year so everyone starts planning for Christmas many weeks in advance. People walk from store to store, looking for the most ideal and surprising gifts for their loved ones, while children's eyes glimmer with anticipation.

    Trending Custom is striving to bring a memorable Christmas 2021 to customers

    As one of the leading companies in Personalized Gifts, Trending Custom understands clearly the early demand for Christmas items and its importance to each customer, and here are three improvements we have made especially for this holiday:

    • Earlier release for new Christmas items since October 2021
    • Constant review and upgrade for all items to ensure customers are satisfied with their orders
    • Massive increase in stock reservation volume to reduce the processing time.

    Prediction for Trending Custom’s order delivery in Christmas 2021 

    According to forecasts from National Retail Federation (NRF), e-commerce holiday sales during November and December are predicted to grow at least 11% compared with 2020. Nevertheless, shipping carriers might be unable to cope well with the aforementioned estimated rising sale. Beginning Oct. 1, the U.S. Postal Service started implementing service changes for First-class service, in which delivery can take 5 days instead of 3 days. This change will lead to 40% of First-class Mail, including a large number of orders from Trending Custom, will be affected. 

    Other orders shipped by DHL Ecommerce, UPS, FedEx, etc, may also encounter similar late delivery in spite of the guaranteed delivery deadline. A shortage in shipping workers and Covid-19 outbreaks in the USA may make it harder for customers to get our products in time 

    Therefore, unless orders are purchased several weeks in advance with Trending Custom, there will always be a small number of orders that may experience delayed delivery and the number might increase as Christmas is approaching. 

    The best time to shop for Christmas 2021 is NOW

    Trending Custom items are wonderful Christmas gifts for friends and family members that you adore and care about. And there's nothing better than a present that can be delivered in time for Christmas Eve. Therefore, we highly recommend that customers place orders as soon as possible so that the holiday will be filled with completed joy.
