Most of our products are supplied direct from stock and will be delivered by our chosen couriers and Royal Mail 1st Class Post. ChristmastimeUK™ aim to achieve delivery of 98% of its parcels in the United Kingdom within 48 hours.

From experience, we do realise that carriers come under immense pressure in the build up to Christmas, especially in the London area, and from time to time there are unavoidable delays. Usually, this only means a further day and in the worst scenario, three days. It is worth remembering this problem, if you are trying to order a product to be delivered to you by a certain date in the run up to Christmas. We will make every effort to deliver orders within the delivery option requested at the time that the order was placed. However, we cannot guarantee this, and we will not accept responsibility if your order is delivered outside this time.

ChristmasTimeUK™ realise that if you have ordered a premium delivery service with us, that it is our responsibility to get the goods to you within the selected time frame. If the goods fail to be delivered within the allocated time, ChristmasTime UK will refund the full amount paid for delivery.

All goods ordered will be delivered within 30 days of receiving the order. If we cannot deliver within this time, ChristmastimeUK™ will inform you and arrange another time for delivery. If another time cannot be agreed ChristmasTime UK will offer you a refund.

We always send you an email to the address that you submitted during the order process to inform you of the despatch of your goods. This will contain a consignment number and the details of your order.
