Christmas Posting Dates

UPDATE : Monday 30/12/2019

We're open for business and shipping orders every day except New Year's Day - and that's just because the Post Office is shut!

Christmas Posting Dates

It's that time of year - and it's time to talk about last posting dates.

This is horribly complicated for us as we ship across Europe and use a mix of Royal Mail and DPD for delivery, aiming to provide the best delivery service at the best price.  

Here's our advice on when to order to ensure delivery by Christmas.  Don't panic if you miss a date - just get in touch and we'll see what we can do.  We recommend Chat or Facebook Instant Message for a quick response.

UK Customers

Deadline is Friday 20th December by 12 noon.  This means Royal Mail 1st class and DPD Next Day services should get to you in time.

Order after 11am on Saturday 21st and we'll ship it out on Monday 23rd.  Your mileage may vary, but there's a chance!

Note : For mainland UK addresses we can also send via Special Delivery as late as 5pm on Monday 23rd - by arrangement - contact us first though!

These represent our best guess based on guidance from our couriers.  We cannot offer a 100% guarantee - we can't be sure the vans will run on time and there won't be delays, particularly at this time of year.  

If you miss these dates we can still get your delivery to you - just get in touch.  We might have to charge for an express service, but we'll happily discuss options to get you what you need in time for Christmas!
