Christmas Postage dates 2013

It comes at the same time every year, yet every year it induces this mad panic, braving the cold to endure some frantic rummaging through half-empty shelves to find that perfect present for your Great Aunt Tilda.
Well, we have a solution to combat the road-rage, angry mobs at the check-out, and the need for steel-toe-capped boots in the shop aisles. Grab yourself a lovely warm cuppa, kick your slippers off, and browse through our lovely website to find the perfect gift for your miniature-loving friends and family (or yourself, of course!)
Everyone deserves a little treat at Christmas.
Here we have some further information about postage details for the upcoming Christmas period. Turns out the Royal Mail is in fact nothing to do with any elves or reindeer, and they too could do with a sprinkle of magic dust to make them fly faster but, seeing as this isn't especially easy to achieve, we simply suggest you follow the guidelines below to make sure your package is with you well before the man in the big red suit climbs down your chimney. Let's make it easy for everyone this year, and pull together to make sure we all have a simple, straight-forward, stress-free Christmas. (Well, as stress free as it can be!)

The following information is passed on to you from the Royal Mail (the shipping company we deal with here in the UK) - and these are the last recommended postal dates for Christmas deliveries. Of course these are the VERY LAST days, so please try to plan as much as possible - we will not be liable for any packages which are delayed in the system, and we'd hate for Great Aunt Tilda to be disappointed.
