2020 Christmas Order Deadlines

Last-minute online Christmas shopping can be stressful. Will my parcel arrive? Will I need to do a last-minute Christmas Eve dash? Here is our guide to Christmas posting cut-off times to help make your Christmas stress-free!

We always recommend you order items required for Christmas as far in advance as possible but completely understand a busy life doesn’t always allow you to do so. With this in mind, you can find our last recommended Christmas order dates for 2020:

Standard Delivery within the UK

Our Standard Delivery within the UK is generally sent by Royal Mail. For the best chance of receiving your goods in time for Christmas, please place all orders by 12-noon on Friday 18th December.

For added peace of mind, you might wish to upgrade to Express Delivery within the UK.

Our Standard Delivery cost is £1.95, but any orders over £7 in the UK will receive free delivery.

Express Delivery within the UK

For extra peace of mind, many customers upgrade to Express Delivery during the festive season. Our Express Delivery service from DPD Local costs just £3.50 and offers a tracked and signed-for service with a 1-hour delivery slot.

If you select Express Delivery, orders need to be placed by 11 am on Wednesday 23rd December to give you the best chance of delivery in time for Christmas.

Please note, with any of our postal services, while we always do our best to get them to you in time for Christmas, we cannot guarantee their arrival as sometimes unforeseen circumstances arise with the postal provider.

For more details on our Express Delivery service please visit our Delivery and Postal Charges page.
