Recap of the 2023 Holiday Season Ashley Noonan @ Jan 09, 2024 The 2023 season was the biggest and busiest season at The Custom Captain yet. Between a record number of shoppers and gifts being sent out, we were so excited to be a part of your holiday season this past year. We were able to get an incredible collection of content thanks to you, showing off all the awesome Custom Captain gear you gave as gifts this past season. We wanted to take a moment to share some of those incredible moments with you here on the blog as well as go over our top gifts this past holiday season. We also loved seeing customers expertly lay out their Custom Captain gear right underneath (and even on their tree!) Our top gifts this season included our artwork, dri-fit shirts, stickers and drinkware. We had over 150 content submissions of photos and videos where family members and friends were giving The Custom Captain as gifts. This time of year is one of our absolute favorites because we get to see the joy and excitement that comes with giving a gift that’s personal and custom. Even better is getting gifters feedback afterwards. We love seeing all of the happy reviews! Bringing each customer's boats to life is always exciting for our team. No matter how many details or unique features, we know our team can replicate every little detail that makes your vessel unique. “I got several items as Christmas presents for our family as the purchase of our boat was definitely one of the highlights of our year. I cannot believe how perfect the artwork is. We have a very unique boat and they captured it so well. My father who we consider our captain, honestly teared up when he saw his Captain shirt and hat and the tank tops I got for our crew are awesome. We get so many compliments on them!” Whitney S. Our drifit shirts are always a major hit for gifts and it looks like this season they made the perfect surprise. “My husband is so hard to shop for and give him a Christmas gift that he REALLY likes. This custom shirt made him so happy and he absolutely loved it!! Gift of the year!” Lora P. In addition to our apparel, we saw so many of you give our tumblers as gifts as well! Our drinkware is a fan favorite and is the perfect gift for those who love their out on the water cocktail. "Our wine tumblers are a huge hit. Look fantastic on our bar and are functional on boat rides😎😎. Well done. 5 stars” Donn S Our stickers made the perfect stocking stuffers and we saw many of you gifting them along with other items. A few customers let us know how much they loved these this season! “Stickers came out great! They work well on my cooler and truck.” Sebastian S. “I purchased these as a gift for my son. I can’t wait to give the items to him, he’s going to love it! I loved it so much, I uploaded another boat to have done.” Jennifer R. While we have big plans for 2024, we are thrilled to have been a part (no matter how big or small) wrapping up the final moments and memories of this past year. Exciting things are in store for the new year and we hope we have you with us once again for another gifting season. We couldn’t do this without your support and we love it each time when we are out on the water and we see you in your Custom Captain gear.
