UK Cut-off dates

Ireland & EU Cut-off dates

Deliveries to Western Europe

If your items are being delivered to Ireland or Western Europe, they take a little longer in transit so we suggest that you place your order up to two working days before the published deadlines. Just to make sure your orders arrive and are under clients’ trees for Christmas.


Time-critical orders

As you know, there are exceptionally high levels of orders and deliveries during the Christmas period, so we strongly recommend you choose our courier delivery service with DPD for orders.  It’s the most effective delivery method, and with DPD Predict, you can schedule your busy day around the delivery. What’s not to love?

We’ll keep you updated

Rest assured, we’re on the case with keeping you on track. Shortly before we reach each deadline, we’ll send you a reminder to make sure you’ll get your orders in on time. Just a reminder, though; orders placed after the cut-off dates will still be processed, but we cannot guarantee delivery before Christmas.
