Christmas Shipping Guide


Last Christmas Posts

We've pulled together as much of the information regarding the last dates you can expect to order something and receive it in time for Christmas. Note, your order must be received before 9am on the date so we have time to process it on that date. Also, none of these dates are guaranteed but they are the dates the carrier companies are advising us to post on/before. If for any reason an order comes in after the last posting date for your region we will contact you to make sure you are aware.

We advise that you allow plenty of time and order for Christmas as early as possible, particularly for International deliveries. Ongoing Covid restrictions, reduced air and freight capacity, high volumes and winter weather conditions are all impacting transportation and local delivery across the globe.

United Kingdom

We post all items First Class using Royal Mail in the UK and the last date for deliver in time for Christmas Eve is Monday 20th December (order before 9am).

Last International Track/Sign Dates

Dates for each country/region using Track, Signed or Standard International post options at checkout (i.e. not Express Courier). Note these are not guaranteed services, if your order is a gift/has to arrive by Christmas, we recommend using the Express Courier Service.

Please note that post-Brexit all orders outside of the UK could be subject to Customs/Import Fees, this varies from region to region and in some cases can delay delivery.

For customers in the EU (Including Rep of Ireland) ALL orders are now subject to local VAT & Import Fees. On average this is a further 20-25% in VAT, plus import duty and handling fees. There is nothing that we can do about these charges, we are currently unable to charge these fees upfront and all EU/International customers accept this when ordering.

If an order is returned to us because the recipient refused to pay Import fees (or cannot be contacted to pay them) then we will not be able to refund shipping costs.

We also recommend providing a phone number for all International orders so that your local carrier can contact you in the event of any delays/problems.

Express Courier Service

We are offering an extra service in the run up to Christmas 2021 with the best value option available on the day to guarantee delivery by Christmas Eve. This will only be available to Australia, New Zealand, USA, Ireland, Italy, France, & Germany at checkout. If your country is not included, please email us and we'll get a quote for you. The final date for this service will be Friday 17th December.

These are the fastest options available at the time and will likely increase in price the closer to the final date we get. Some countries may be removed before the final date if the carrier can no longer guarantee delivery. This service may have to be withdrawn or changed if courier prices/delivery schedules change.
