2019 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 2019:
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 20th 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 or Royal Mail 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 Monday 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.
