Last order dates for Christmas
Christmas delivery 2023
Although it feels very early with the somewhat mild weather we are having, I wanted to give you fair warning about Christmas order dates and delivery.
These are the dates given by Royal Mail. However, this is one of the busiest times of years and delays do happen. I urge you to order sooner rather than later if you are likely to be disappointed if an order doesn't arrive on time.
You can always opt to have your order delivered directly to the recipient. I will be offering a gift wrap service, along with the option to add on a gift card. This should be available by the end of October.
These are the current last order and dispatch dates. If anything changes I'll update this page.
Last orders by Monday 18 December for dispatch by Royal Mail tracked 24 on Wednesday 20 December.
Customers outside of the UK are divided into three different groups. If your country or region isn't listed, please get in touch.

Gripper frames & pre-orders
If you are ordering an item that includes a gripper frame e.g. a starter bundle, these items are not dispatched in the usual timeframe. Pre-order items are dispatched in approximately 2-3 weeks following the closure of the pre-order.
If you would like to order a gripper frame or starter bundle, these are the remaining dates for 2023.
