Pandora Christmas Ornament 2013

pandora-santa-ornament-2013It’s almost time for the holidays (although we’re still a few weeks out!) and Pandora will soon be offering another Christmas ornament as their holiday gift with purchase!  In keeping with the designs and material from the past couple of seasons, this year’s ornament will be a porcelain Santa with a drawstring pouch.  Unlike previous years, this promotion will only run for a brief period of time from November 30th to December 8th for US and Canada, November 25th to December 8th for Australia and New Zealand, and UK (dates TBD).  The spend requirement will be $125USD ($150CAD), $150AUD ($180NZD), and £175GBP.

I’ve heard quantities are extremely limited for the Santa, so if you like this one I would get it sooner rather than later :). I’ve had fun collecting the ornaments from 2011 and 2012, which were the snowball and stocking, so the Santa will fit right in. Unfortunately, that is it for promotions this year in North America. I don’t have any information on 2014 gifts with purchase so I’ll post that when I do find out anything! Do you like this GWP? Will you be participating in this promotion?

pandora-stacking-boxes-uk-gwpP.S. A brief note about the Pandora stacking jewelry boxes; the UK just got these GWPs with a number of different spending tiers (good while supplies last):

  • For £125, receive a free round jewelry box
  • For £200, receive a single layer stacking jewelry box
  • For £275, receive a double layer stacking jewelry box
  • For £450, receive a 4-layer stacking jewelry box

These can be found online at John Greed Jewellery or at your local retailer.  Unfortunately, the Pandora cannot be shipped outside the country so I’m still waiting for these boxes to appear in the US.

    Wow amazing!!!!!

    • Leann

    Why is it overseas always get the better GWP’s? I could only assume they feel the same way about the US. But we normally never get beautiful boxes like they do 🙁 Please keep us posted if there are any sites found that ship out of the US.

    • Leann

      I’m still hopefully that the jewelry boxes make their way here :). Plus, we’ve always got cheaper spend requirements. Look at the santa – $125USD vs. 175GBP? That’s a big difference!

      • Samantha

        Yes it’s not fair 🙁 I keep trying to guess why though, maybe because we’re smaller so get less from us.

  • Laura Summers

    Love the ornament promo. I have all the ornaments except the first one – I don’t love it, and the prices are just too high anyway. My favorite is the pewter sleigh from 2010. Also like my pewter snowman from 2009 and the stocking from last year. The ball from 2011 kind of missed the mark, IMO. I love the quantities are limited! I’ll save some Christmas purchases and rush right out on November 30th. 🙂

    • Leann

      I really like their porcelain ornaments, and haven’t bothered collecting the older ones since they’re SO expensive now! Guess they didn’t make as many since Pandora wasn’t as popular as it is today :). For sure get yours before they’re gone ;).

      • Marilyne Vance

        I have the ornaments from 2011 and 2012 and have put the 2013 on hold for Nov 30 pickup. I have to say I did fall in love with the 2010 pewter sleigh so waited and watched on ebay until I found one that was reasonable. I won the bid and am very excited to receive it.

      • Leann

        Wow, good for you! The older ornaments sell for so much nowadays since there weren’t that many made in those years. I like the new porcelain designs too :).

      • Marilyne Vance

        l am not crazy about the first two that were made. I saw the second year being advertised for $250.00 and this is ridiculous.

  • Manda

    I’m sooo excited about the new ornament! I’ll definitely be there the first day they release them

    • Leann

      That’s awesome! Glad you’re happy about the design :D.

  • Julia Trubitsyna

    Or wow! I want that Santa!!!!!! Have not got any before, so will star collecting Christmas ornaments only this year. Will it be avaliable online? Or only at Pandora stores?

    • Grace Fanconi Antoshkiw

      wondering when the Pandora bracelet promotion is going to be .free bracelet with purchase. thank you

      • Laura Summers

        It’s over. Happened for about 5 days towards the end of September. I think there’s usually another one, but not until March.

        Last year Jared did a “surprise” free bracelet promo with a $125 spend for a weekend in December, I think. But no more Pandora free bracelet promos this year.

      • Leann

        Probably next March.

    • Scarlett

      I’m wondering if the Santa will be available online too. I hope someone can answer this question.

      • Leann

        Retailers can’t offer promos online, but usually if you call to make a phone order they can include it.

    • Leann

      They’ll be sold in stores, they don’t run promotions online :(. But you could try and do a phone order :).

  • bec

    Its 450 for the 4 tier box 🙁 just ordered mine lol

    • Leann

      Wow! That’s a big spend ;). What did you get?

      • bec

        2 of the gold ribbed clips for me 😀 n a few silvers for xmas pressies 🙂

  • Samantha

    What does GWP mean? How long will the box… promotion be around for? What is the round box outside made out of, is it cardboard?

    • Leann

      GWP = gift with purchase :). The jewelry boxes will be giving out while supplies last. I don’t know if they’ll last until Christmas. The round box is a faux leatherette finish on hard cardboard.

      • Samantha

        Aah, thank you. That is what i was afraid of, there are only a few charms i want and i’m getting half of them for X-mas :/

  • Samantha

    I really want the single layer but £200? it’s quite a lot to spend in one transaction but i might try to!

    • Leann

      It definitely is, but the boxes look great!

  • bellex

    Does anyone if there will be a bracelet promo (e.g. spend $150 and get a free bracelet) will happened this year in Australia?

    • Leann

      Yes! There’s one coming up but it’s only for purple or black smooth leather. I’m going to post on it soon with details.

  • Sharon

    I wonder if Santa will make it to Ireland and how much the spend will be in Euro? £175 for UK sounds ridiculous when compared to the US spend. I will have to make a decision to ask a friend in the US to acquire one if that’s the case.

    • Leann

      I don’t have any info on that, but it’s weird how Northern Ireland is not part of the UK market. I will update the blog if I hear anything :). The spend is so much better for the US, it’d probably be cheaper to have your friend shop for you.

      • Sharon

        I’ll keep my ears open too and let you know if I hear anything from this side. Have to say usually, though, the stores often don’t know what’s coming. The franchises aren’t as well informed as the fans methinks.

      • Sharon

        Hi Leann, I just spoke to the main Concept Store in Dublin, Ireland. The assistant said they should have the ceramic Santa available here in the Republic in December. She said she didn’t yet know what the purchase amount would be or exactly when it will be available. Still, good to know they have some awareness of it. This’ll be the first time we get the Christmas ornament.

      • Leann

        That’s good news! I’ve heard some rumors that the Santa won’t be available in the UK because they can’t supply the demand :(. I hope that’s not true but the UK may not be getting the Santa now :(.

    • Leann

      I don’t have any info on that, but it’s weird how Northern Ireland is not part of the UK market. I will update the blog if I hear anything :). The spend is so much better for the US, it’d probably be cheaper to have your friend shop for you.

  • Samantha

    Is there like a compartment underneath for charms in the round jewellery box?

    • Leann

      Yes, there’s a layer for charms but only about 12-15 slots?

  • Samantha

    It’s too late now but could i of got two promotions, spend £200 and got both jewellery box and the Santa?

    • Leann

      It really depends on the retailers. Some stores won’t let you get more than one promotion and others are more lenient. 🙂

  • Ruthy

    I got the Santa ornament this morning! My husband was the very first person in the Pandora store! I had intended to buy the amethyst birthday blooms ring for my stepdaughter and 2 Pandora clips for my mother’s bangle bracelet, so that I’d spend the bare minimum in order to get the ornament, but they didn’t have her size. So I got the earrings instead. I tucked them inside Santa’s sack. I’ll have to write a little note in her Christmas card to tell her to open it.

    • Leann

      Wow! What a great husband :D. The sack is kind of hard to get to IMO. I could squeeze one finger in there, lol, but I guess I could try to pull the sack out from under the crook created by Santa’s hat. 🙂 Your stepdaughter will love the earrings!

    Hello Pandora Sisters
    Today I got my 12 day of Christmas Pandora charms. Love Love. I did get a jewelry box also with a gift Santa.
    I am a big Jared’s Jewelry fan A+++ customer service. 🙂

    • Leann

      Fabulous! Aren’t they great? I can’t wait to get mine! 🙂

  • Sarah

    Can someone please tell me why some of these santas look like they have gold draw string and some look like they have white, im hoping to buy the ornaments online on ebay or similar and im a little confused is it just photo quality? or was there two?

    • Leann

      It should be the same, it may be the lighting.
