Last UK Shipping Dates for Delivery by Xmas (to arrive by 24th Dec):
Thur 20th 4pm: for Royal Mail to aim but not guarantee delivery by Christmas using First Class post (Free - £1.99)
Fri 21st 4pm: for DHL and Royal Mail Next-Day Guaranteed (£5.50-£7.50)
Last Shipping Date to avoid Jan Bank Holiday Delays:
Thurs 27th 4pm: This is our recommendation, orders should be delivered next-day, but could be 2 days if Royal Mail have a back-log.
Fri 28th 4pm: This is more risky, while orders placed by 4pm 28th should be delivered next-day, we recommend ordering by 4pm 27th for delivery hopefully by 29th. Royal Mail Next-day Saturday Guaranteed can be used before 4pm on the 28th for delivery next-day.
Sun 30th 4pm: for Royal Mail to aim but not guarantee delivery by Jan 2nd (Jan 3rd in Scotland). After this orders will be collected by Royal Mail on the 2nd for delivery on the 3rd (or a few days later if they have a back-log).
Festive Season Opening Dates
Until 4pm Thur 20th Dec: We're open as normal. Orders will be sent as normal. Royal Mail expect to deliver before Christmas all orders placed by 4pm on the 20th.
Fri 21st Dec: We're open as normal. Only orders placed by 4pm and sent DHL or Royal Mail next-day will be delivered before Christmas (others should be delivered around 27th, but may take a few days longer if they have a back-log due to Christmas)
Sun 23rd Dec and Mon 24th Dec: We are dialing up our customer service even further and our team are opening up on Sunday to process orders placed by 4pm Sun 23rd. We will also process as many orders as we can on Monday 24th morning before Royal Mail collect at 11am. In reality we expect only to be able to send orders placed before 9am, and this assumes lots of orders are not placed the evening before. These orders placed after Fri 21st 4pm will be sent the morning of the 24th and expected to be delivered 27th (but may take a few days longer if they have a back-log due to Christmas).
25th - 26th Dec: We'll be closed as Royal Mail and DHL are closed and not making collections :(
27th - 28th Dec: We'll be dispatching orders placed by 4pm sameday as usual. If you order after 4pm on Sun 30th, your order will not get to you until Jan 2nd (or Jan 3rd in Scotland) and a few days could be added to this if Royal Mail have a back-log.
Sun 30th and Mon 31st Dec: We're opening again on Sunday and as normal on Monday until mid-day. We can only guarantee to send orders placed by 4pm on Sun 30th, but if possible we will try to send as many orders as we can that are placed the morning of the 31st. Royal Mail come at 11am so we doubt we could send any orders placed after 9am in the morning, and if there are many orders on the 31st we may not get to them. Any orders sent on Mon 31st will be delivered Jan 2nd (or Jan 3rd in Scotland) and a few days could be added to this if Royal Mail have a back-log.
Tue 1st Jan: We'll be closed as Royal Mail and DHL are closed and not making collections :(
2rd Jan: We'll be dispatching orders placed by 4pm sameday as usual. There are deliveries in all of the UK except Scotland.
3rd Jan onwards: We are open as normal and all orders will be sent as normal :)
