Literally The Last Posting Dates
What did the stamp say to the Christmas card? Stick with me and we’ll go places!
Although it’s less than a week until Christmas, fear not, those letters and parcels can still reach their destination in time to put under the tree before the big day. That’s because the last posting dates for sending post first class in time for Christmas is tomorrow. Saturday is the deadline for sending First Class mail as well as items via the Royal Mail tracked 48 service.
Last posting dates
For those of us still writing Christmas cards or scrambling around for presents this weekend, parcels and letters via Royal mail Tracked 24 can be sent up to and including the 22nd December and Royal Mail Special Delivery Guaranteed items can be sent a day later (23rd). Why not browse our Gifts by Theme in the Christmas Shop for some inspirational ideas too?
Last post deliveries
The last post before Christmas will be on Christmas Eve and the next deliveries after that will arrive on Saturday 27th December.
Click and collect
The growing popularity of click and collect means ordering those last minute presents has never been easier. The really good news is that Amazon parcels can be delivered to any of 10,500 Post Office branches for collection this holiday. What’s more, more than 3,000 Post Office branches are now open longer than ever before, including this Sunday!
Christmas present wrapping
Faced with a whole host of things to do before Christmas Day itself, the thought of wrapping those presents may sound like a chore. But help is at hand! Following our guide to perfectly wrapping presents should save some precious time whilst also achieving some impressive results!
Forget me not
And why not make it a new year resolution to ensure none of those important calendar events are missed in 2015? The handy Forget Me Not tool available from the Post Office is incredibly helpful. It’s easy to set up and enables users to receive email and SMS alert reminders throughout the year in order to send cards and gifts to friends and family in plenty of time.
