Missed a last posting date?

If you would like to place a Christmas order but you have missed one of the dates I've listed above, please get in touch with me as soon as you can. I can often manage a last minute order at short notice, and occasionally I even deliver by hand if it's local!

Everything else you need to know...

Standard delivery

  • I usually dispatch standard delivery items in two to five days, and always as soon as I can after I receive your order.

  • In the Christmas period I make a huge effort to dispatch standard delivery orders on the day of the order, or the day after, if I possibly can, but this cannot be guaranteed.

Next day delivery

  • If you'd like next day delivery it's best to get in touch first so I can confirm your items are in stock.

  • If your items are in stock, your order needs to reach me before midday for me to be able to dispatch that day for delivery the following day.

  • In the last few days before Christmas next day delivery gets a little less certain. The actual delivery is not under my control as I use Royal Mail or couriers for this service (I choose whichever I think will be best on an order by order basis). A signature will be required on delivery. At Christmas everything is dependent on the number of parcels going through Royal Mail’s and the various courier’s systems.


Delivery outside the UK

  • Please email me telling me what you’d like to order and where it should be sent and I will confirm last order dates and all other details as soon as I can.

  • Please get in touch if you'd like specific information relating to your order.

Delivery to UK Highlands and Islands

  • Standard delivery and next day delivery both typically take around 24 hours longer than UK Mainland delivery.

  • Please get in touch if you'd like specific information relating to your order.


Gift wrapping

Did you forget to get a gift for a crucial someone on your list?

I can gift wrap your order and send it direct to the recipient with a personal message from you, if you would like. Find out about my gift wrapping options here. This service can be a life-saver for last minute emergencies!

Emailed gift vouchers

If you order your gift voucher to be sent by email you can order any time up to 21/12/18. The gift voucher will be emailed within 24 hours. It can go direct to you or to the recipient with a covering message.

If your order is not in stock

...and for custom and special orders

If I don’t have the items you’ve ordered in stock I’ll advise you as soon as possible as to the likely delivery date so you can decide if you are happy to wait. If it’s not in stock, I’ll either arrange a refund or I can send a gift voucher, whichever you prefer.

Orders received between Christmas and New Year

If you order between 22nd December 2018 and 3rd January 2019 (other than for emailed gift vouchers), your order will be dispatched after 3rd January 2019 - unless I have confirmed in writing that it will be sent sooner.


I hope you have a lovely Christmas and a fabulous 2019!


Christmas 2019 delivery information will usually be available at the beginning of December 2019. If you would like know delivery information earlier than December, please don't hesitate to get in touch with me.
