Christmas Shopping: When to order by to receive by Christmas

The holiday season is just around the corner, and it's time to start thinking about those special gifts for your loved ones. But with Christmas Day fast approaching, it's crucial to know the order-by dates for your location to ensure that your presents arrive on time. In this post, we'll provide you with the Christmas shipping deadlines for different regions and the option to upgrade to DHL Express for a guaranteed Christmas delivery.

United Kingdom (excluding NI & Scottish Highlands)

Last Day to Order: December 18th

For our customers in most parts of the United Kingdom, you have until December 18th to place your orders and still receive them in time for Christmas Day. However, if you're ordering after December 11th, we highly recommend upgrading your shipping to express delivery at the checkout to ensure your gifts reach their destinations without a hitch.

 

Northern Ireland & Scottish Highlands

Last Day to Order: December 14th

For those residing in Northern Ireland and the Scottish Highlands, the last day to order for Christmas delivery is December 14th. As these areas might experience slightly longer delivery times, it's essential to plan accordingly. If you're placing orders after December 9th, don't forget to consider the express delivery upgrade to guarantee your gifts' timely arrival.

 

Europe (EU & Non-EU)

Last Day to Order: December 12th

If you're located in Europe, both within the European Union and non-EU countries, you have until December 12th to place your orders for Christmas. As international shipping can take a bit longer, we recommend considering the express delivery option if you're ordering after December 8th. This ensures your presents cross borders and reach your loved ones in time for the festive celebrations.

 

Rest of the World

Last Day to Order: December 8th

For customers in the rest of the world, including distant destinations, the last day to order your gifts for Christmas delivery is December 8th. International shipping may vary in duration, and selecting the express delivery upgrade, especially if you're ordering after December 4th, is the best way to guarantee your presents reach their global destinations on time.

 

DHL Express: The Ultimate Express Delivery Option

DHL Express is our trusted partner for all your express delivery needs. With DHL Express, your packages are fully tracked and signed for, providing peace of mind that your gifts will be delivered securely and promptly. Whether you're sending a surprise to a loved one just a few miles away or across the world, DHL Express ensures a reliable and timely delivery experience.

 

In Summary

The holiday season is a time for joy and giving, but the key to making it even more special is ensuring your gifts arrive on time. To avoid any last-minute holiday stress, remember to place your orders by the specified deadlines for your region. And if you want that extra layer of assurance, don't forget to consider upgrading to DHL Express for a fully tracked and signed-for delivery experience. This Christmas, let your gifts be the shining stars under the tree, delivered with care and punctuality!
