Our Customers write... 

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.

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.
Our 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
Our 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

Signature Receipts

FOR THE USA & UNITED KINGDOM: We know that not all of our customers want a signature receipt however it is required by YOUR country's post office when your box is delivered. This is a post office requirement and unfortunately we are unable to request that your box be left without someone signing for it.

FOR CANADA: It may be possible to have your box left at your home without a signature required. However, this is always left to the discretion of your postal carrier who will only leave the box if it is deemed to be safe. It may help if you leave a note on the door with the tracking number, your name and the date requesting the box be left on your porch or some other safe location around your home.
If you would prefer "No Signature Receipt Required", please note this in your shopping cart when you place your order.
