Last Ordering Dates for Christmas 2016

Eco-friendly Gift WrappingI love being a small part of so many people’s celebrations! Here are my current last ordering dates for Christmas delivery 2016.

If you order by the date given below for your country/region, I will guarantee to have your item(s) in the post by the Royal Mail’s last recommended posting date for Christmas. Delivery time is not, however, guaranteed and they don’t always manage it, so please don’t leave ordering till the last possible moment!


Please check back, as things will change!

If I get busy, I may have to move the dates below forward, and you risk being disappointed if you haven’t placed your order.

If a fixed delivery date is really important to you, please contact me and we can look into a guaranteed service.

Please always read my full Terms and Conditions.
