Delivery Information

Orders placed before 3pm Monday to Friday will normally be sent out the same day. Orders placed after 3pm on Friday, and over the weekend, will normally be sent out on Monday. We're closed on UK bank holidays.

Christmas Opening

Christmas Delivery

If you buy something as a Christmas gift, we'll accept returns up until January 18th, so you don't have to leave it until the last minute.

We'd very much recommend allowing plenty of extra time for deliveries if it's at all possible. For international orders, DHL delivery is usually an option in the checkout, which will normally be quicker than regular mail. The last ordering dates given here are based on when the Royal Mail say orders should still arrive in time, but keep in mind that delays can happen. These are the last dates when orders should be delivered in time for Christmas:

UK delivery:

  • Standard delivery (Royal Mail First Class) - Thursday 20 December
  • Royal Mail Special Delivery - Friday 21st December
  • Royal Mail Special Delivery Saturday - Friday 21st December

International delivery:

  • Africa, Middle East -Tuesday 4th December
  • Asia, Cyprus, Far East, Eastern Europe (except Czech Republic, Poland and Slovakia) - Friday 7th December
  • Caribbean, Central and South America - Friday 7th December
  • Australia, Greece, New Zealand - Monday 10th December
  • Czech Republic, Germany, Italy, Poland - Friday 14th December
  • Finland, Sweden, USA - Friday 14th December
  • Austria, Denmark, Iceland, Portugal, Netherlands, Norway, Slovakia, Spain, Switzerland - Monday 17th December
  • Belgium, France, Ireland, Luxembourg, - Tuesday 18th December
  • Canada - due to strike action affecting Canada Post, delays are highly likely. Royal Mail say post sent by the 14th December should arrive in time, but there is a large backlog to work through, so we'd recommend ordering well in advance, and consider DHL delivery if it's important.

If we have your order before 3PM on these dates, it's likely to arrive in time, but do keep in mind that delays can happen.
