Further Information

To ensure that we can process your order and we can ship it out to you before or in time for Christmas please place your order at least a week (preferably two) in advance, orders which are placed after a week will not be guaranteed to make it to the Post office before the last recommended shipping date.

If you would prefer your order to go via an express service please contact the team before placing your order, we will then advise if shipping via a Courier is doable (for express services this would be an additional charge).

Due to COVID-19 we are unable to offer a same-day shipping service, we endeavour to get all orders shipped on the Friday after purchase. Please keep this in mind if you are ordering close to the Royal Mail last shipping date.

If at any point you are unsure and would like further support or information from a member of our team please contact us and we can advise you with any questions you may have have.

Please note these last posting dates are a guide only and could be a subject to change. We will ensure to keep this page updated with the latest information we find. Due to the second lockdown in the UK this may be subject to change.

We try our best to ensure the orders are shipped before or on the recommended post date.
