Royal Mail have advised the following last posting dates for international and domestic post to arrive in time for Christmas 2023.
Please bear in mind that this is an incredibly busy time of year for posting cards and parcels and whilst Royal Mail are running an increased service with more staff and additional deliveries, these dates are by no means guaranteed, so we recommend placing your order as early as possible to ensure it arrives in good time.
All orders that are noted to be Christmas presents will be labelled as such by us here at SF HQ so recipients will know not to open the package before the day. Our packages are unbranded to make sure the contents remain a surprise.
Monday 27 November – BFPOs
Wednesday 6 December – Australia, Caribbean, China, Africa, Asia, Central and South America, Far and Middle East and New Zealand
Thursday 7 December – Cyprus and Malta
Friday 8 December – Greece, Eastern Europe (excl. Czechia, Poland and Slovakia) and Turkey
Monday 11 December – Canada, Czechia, Finland, Italy, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Sweden, Spain and USA
Wednesday 13 December – Austria, Belgium, Denmark, France, Luxembourg, Germany, Iceland, Ireland, Netherlands, Slovakia and Switzerland
Monday 18 December – 2nd Class UK
Wednesday 20 December – 1st Class UK
Thursday 21 December – Next Day Special Delivery
The final post of the year will leave the office on Thursday 21 December and we will continue posting worldwide up to and including that date. The Slightly Foxed office will be closed from Thursday 21 December until Thursday 4 January 2023.
The last posting dates for Christmas 2023 should allow enough time for delivery but they are by no means guaranteed. Please do place your order as soon as possible to give us enough time to pack and post your goods out in time for Christmas. For any last-minute presents, or for items to be posted outside the UK, you can order all goods on our website and have a printable gift card sent to you or directly to the gift recipient by email. Your items will follow in the post.
Please get in touch by phone on +44 (0) 20 7033 0258 or email [email protected] if you have any urgent enquiries about an order. And if you need an emergency gift card to tide you over, you can download one of our plain printable gift cards.
