It seems like the last postage dates for deliveries get earlier every year!

We've all had that anxious wait for a special gift for a loved one to arrive as the clock tick's down to Christmas - and we'd hate for you to miss out. 

So here are Royal Mail's official last postage dates for UK and International deliveries. Of course, if you miss the boat or are cutting it fine, you can always get in touch and we'll do our best to arrange an alternative service (additional costs may apply). To be safe though - work to these dates:

Thursday 1 December         Australia and New Zealand
Friday 2 December              China (People's Republic)
Monday 5 December            All remaining Caribbean destinations
Wednesday 7 December      Africa, Asia (except China, People's Republic), Central and South America, Far and Middle East
Thursday 8 December          Cyprus and Malta
Friday 9 December               Greece, Eastern Europe (except Czech Republic, Poland and Slovakia) and Turkey
Saturday 10 December         Canada, Czech Republic, Finland, Italy, Poland, Sweden, USA
Monday 12 December           Austria, Denmark, Germany, Iceland, Ireland, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Slovakia, Spain, Switzerland
Wednesday 14 December    Belgium, France, Luxembourg

Wednesday 21 December      UK last postage

Phew... quite the list. Happy shopping!
