It’s not too late! Just as we are reminding ourselves of our last posting dates for pre-Christmas arrival, we thought it would be a good time to point out to those of you who still have some shopping left to do, that’s it’s genuinely not too late to find the perfect gift – and for it to be delivered to your door (or their door!) in time for Christmas.
Royal Mail’s last posting date for 2nd class is Wednesday 18th December. This is our standard FREE shipping option for orders over £20, so if you place your order before 1pm on that day, choosing free or Standard Shipping – Royal Mail 2nd class, we’ll make sure your order is picked and posted in time.
The last day for 1st class is Friday 20th December – so place your order before 1pm that day and choose Expedited Shipping – Royal Mail 1st class at the checkout, and we’ll make sure it makes it!
There are still three days when you can shop between 20th and 23rd December. Our last posting day will be Monday 23rd December, and if your order is placed before 1pm on that day and you choose Next Working Day – Special Delivery then your parcel is guaranteed to arrive on Christmas Eve.
Remember that if there’s someone who you won’t see on the day, or if you’re cutting it too fine for your order to arrive with you and then send it on, we can always send it straight to them - and we’ll even wrap it for you for FREE. So, save yourself some stamps - and some wrapping paper - and choose for your order to be gift wrapped at the checkout. Any gift orders that come through to us with a ship to name and address that is different to the billing address will be sent directly to the recipient without the billing information.
If all that sounds great, but you still don’t have a clue what you’re looking for, then here’s some of this week’s favourites to inspire you:
Fun for all the family - peel the Sprout and see what it’s all about! Unravel 25 layers of crepe paper and discover festive trinkets as well as fun trivia. A cute, charming family-friendly game or crackers alternative to keep everyone entertained over the Christmas period.
Everyone needs a diary – and they don’t come much more renowned than this one by Caspari. A Slim Diary and Planner in Cranberry Red Faux leather and snakeskin, with a shimmering gold stamped 2020. Golden gilt-edged pages and a helpful ribbon marker make this a very classy pocket diary indeed. Also available in classic navy.
Not that we’re biased, but we think that this striking set of coasters featuring West Coast Of Scotland scenes as painted by John Lowrie Morrison O.B.E. make a perfect present!
Images included are Autumn Gloaming, Lochgilphead, Evening Light North Pier, Oban, Hill path and big haystack Tarskavaig, Isle of Skye and Evening moonrise on the Abbey at Iona. Matching Placemats also available.
This adorable highland cow paperweight by Dora Designs is a very cute character who looks lovely on display – he definitely should not be limited to holding paper! He is made from beige brocade fabric with faux fur and velveteen trim, and is scented with lavender. This junior version is around 12cm but if you want to upsize, he’s also available as the very popular Angus Doorstop
