It’s worth checking out the complete list of last posting dates on the Royal Mail web site.
For the United Kingdom, Thursday 20 December will be last posting date for 1st Class , Royal Mail Tracked 48 and Royal Mail Signed For 1st Class. Keep that in mind – and that this will only work for In Stock items. Taking things down to the wire, we cannot guarantee against disappointment – we’ll make best endeavours to get gifts to you before Christmas, but that’s all we can offer as once we post anything it’s out of our hands.
You can find the longer list of options on the latest recommended posting dates for the UK on the Royal Mail web site.
We always post in good time using suitable packaging. If you need insurance, remember to ask and we will charge accordingly.
If you’re in any doubt and would rather pick up presents yourself, consider making your way to London and see us at our Dragonmeet convention stall. The event will take place on 1st December at Novotel London West, Hammersmith, London.
