We have received our crackers and I didn't think they could be so beautiful~ I cannot wait for us all to continue on with our "new" tradition of 'the crackers' after dinner this year; although it will be a tragedy
to break them! ~~ Shannon Y.
My Customers write...
"The crackers may be the most beautiful I have ever seen. They will continue a tradition my Mother in Law started many years ago, something from her childhood in Glasgow, Scotland. This year my son is bringing a friend from Brazil for Thanksgiving dinner. Her first Thanksgiving, made extra special by little touches like the crackers. Thank you! Also, love the activities book. Fun!
~~ Alice C. USA
My Customers write...
Thanks so much for your extra effort in getting out the Thanksgiving crackers.They made it safely to our family gathering on the Cape. It was fun to see everyone’s surprise when they saw the table with these beautiful little extras. The kids had a blast opening up the surprises and the adults had fun with the puzzles too.It was a wonderful added touch to our meal. ~~ G.R. USA

FAMILY CRACKERS

They're back! Your favourite FAMILY harvest-time crackers filled with puzzles, treats, quality chocolate and little surprises the whole family will enjoy. Packed with fun for all ages, you will find these crackers are great to enjoy just before dessert or after dinner as the Victorians used to enjoy them. Or you can crack them open right before dinner is brought to the table - they are terrific ice-breakers in gatherings of people who might not get together too often and need a little help to relax and enjoy the holiday fun. Wonderful idea for family reunions!

I couldn't keep up with the orders last year and unfortunately had to turn many people away. Quantites are limited and orders are accepted 'first come first served' so please do order NOW if you don't wish to be disappointed.

EACH cracker contains:
~ Fall colour tissue paper hat,
~ 1 Sorini TruffleOR Ghirardelli Caramel Square OR Toblerone Mini Bar.
~ 1 delicious Werther's Original Bonbon
~ 2-sided Thanksgiving activity sheet with puzzles, turkey trivia, songs, poems and packed
~ puzzle pencil and eraser,
~ Thanksgiving joke (they're cute and funny!),
~ and a really neat snapper.

Treat Tube Size: 6"
Overall Cracker Size: Approx:10"

With every Thanksgiving order of $35 or more, we will include 1 free copy of our new "Waiting for Thanksgiving" booklet.

Each cracker is indivdidually hand-decorated with harvest flowers, nuts and leaves. They really are special! Because they are so time-consuming, they do cost a bit more (we gather, cut and glue every single piece here in our cracker studio!) and there is a very limited quanitity of them available. These crackers contain all of the same contents as our Family Thanksgiving STYLE #1 variety - but with the added hand decorations on top and a yummy truffle inside!

With every Thanksgiving order of $35 or more, we will include 1 free copy of our new "Waiting for Thanksgiving" booklet.

Your Thanksgiving crackers were out of this world. My family was amazed to see not only Thanksgiving crackers on the table, but such beautiful ones at that. We had a ball opening them and seeing such unique goodies inside. The jokes were great and the puzzle page was a lot of fun. We all wore our crowns religiously!!!! Can't thank you enough for getting them to me at such late notice.
Lorraine, Eugen Or.

"Waiting for Christmas" Booklet

NOTE:
So much about Christmas has to do with waiting... waiting for celebration of the nativity, waiting for family to arrive, waiting for Santa Claus, waiting to open presents, waiting to set the table with our best china, waiting for Tom Turkey to cook and the mince pie to come out of the oven. This year again, as an added holiday treat , we are including a wee booklet with a few pages of little games, puzzles, recipes, crafts, songs and other things to do while you are WAITING (patiently or otherwise!) for all things Christmas. We will include one little booklet in every box. Please feel free to copy it for your family's use.
Or, you may order additional copies at a nominal cost.

~
from your Cracker Elves who WISH YOU a very MERRY CHRISTMAS!


SHIPPING NOTES:

USA Thanksgiving

We begin filling our thanksgiving crackers the 3rd week of October.
We begin shipping October 31st.
We do not guarantee a particular delivery date -
only that we will have your box at your preferred delivery address by November 22nd or sooner.
We appreciate your patience.
Because we want your crackers and the chocolate in them to arrive as fresh as possible
we cannot make our crackers in January and February as the mass cracker manufactureres do.
This means there is a lot of work for the Cracker Elves in the few weeks available to us!
If you are concerned about your Thanksgiving crackers reaching you in time,
send us an EMAIL and we will try to assist.

If you are travelling, consider giving us your destination as your shipping address
or let us know when you expect to leave home for the holidays.

To ensure freshnesss, the filling of all
Christmas, Hanukkah, Solstice, Dog and Cat Holiday GillianCrackers™
begins the first week of November.


We then commence our Hanukkah and Christmas Shipping Schedule:
Beginning
November 15th through to December 5th for USA Orders.

Beginning December 1st through to December 21st for Canadian Orders.
Special Note: Due to a high volume of orders this season,
we are extending the USA Shipping deadlines to December 15th.

Our target is to have every parcel in our customers' homes by December 24th.
You may receive your package well before that date,

however, we do not promise to reach you any earlier than Christmas Eve day
(December 19th for Solstice Crackers)
(December 20th for Hanukkah Crackers)

Again, especially with late orders placed in November and December,
we can only promise to have your crackers to you by December 24th.


If you are travelling, consider giving us your destination as your shipping address
or let us know when you expect to leave home for the holidays.
