Last Christmas Posting Dates 2019

If you plan to do some of your Christmas shopping online then you will need to be aware of the last posting dates.  You don't want to be left empty handed on the day!  Though if you forget anyone don't panic, our gift cards (found here) are emailed instantly and make a great present!

Below you will find both UK and International guidelines, issued by our carriers Royal Mail and DHL.  A couple of dates we have changed from Saturdays to Fridays to take into account that we don't post any orders on Saturdays.

In most cases, you will be able to order slightly closer to Christmas using DHL than you are able to using Royal Mail.

Royal Mail deadlines

Royal Mail make sure your orders move around the UK safely and when it comes to the International orders, they often hand over to local postal services. At peak times like Christmas, this handover and the need to clear customs in some cases, can occasionally lead to a delay so my advice is order is as soon as you can, don't risk leaving it until later.

9th December - Africa/Middle East, Asia, Far East, Caribbean, Central and South America

11th December - Eastern Europe (Excl. Poland, Czech Rep. and Slovakia)
