Yes it's true!
Delivery by Christmas time is still possible for most of the United States! IF you happen to be on the West Coast your UPS Ground order should still arrive with a day(ish) to spare. If you're one of our East Coast friends then it's likely you'll have to pony up big bucks for your Gnome delivery and upgrade to 3 Day Select shipping.
Because it's the holiday season all orders are being handled and processed as fast as humanly possible and most ship within a couple of hours!
