Christmas Delivery Information

International Customers

We cannot guarantee Christmas delivery for international customers. However, the majority of orders placed before 6th December will likely be delivered to international destinations in time if they clear customs quickly (excluding waitlisted items or items with lead times). We send all international items with the maximum tracking level possible in the destination country. Please refer to the Royal Mail website for more information - https://www.royalmail.com/christmas/last-posting-dates. 


Most small, lightweight orders are shipped with Royal Mail, and larger, heavier orders go by courier. If you would rather we use a different or express service, please contact us before placing an order for a shipping quote.
