Last delivery dates for Christmas

The big day is nearly upon us and we know it is going to look at least a little different for many.

That's why the team are working as hard as Santa's elves to make sure we can continue delivering our subscriptions and Mystery Books as late as we can. We know this is especially important in the UK, with the change in restrictions!

Below are the dates and times that we recommend ordering each product, in the UK. These are estimates rather than guarantees, as delivery companies worldwide are experiencing large delays due to demand. We will continue shipping orders out after these dates, but to have the best chance that your order will arrive before Christmas we recommend sticking to the dates below:

Monday 21 December (by 12pm): Standard delivery for all Mystery Books

Monday 21 December (by 5pm): Gift subscriptions with physical activation gift cards

Tuesday 22 December (by 12pm): Express delivery on all products

Wednesday 23 December (by 12pm): Special Delivery* on all products

Thursday 24 December (by midnight): Gift subscriptions with email activation

*Royal Mail have informed us that the Tier 4 restrictions mean they can no longer guarantee Christmas delivery on this service. Please consider this when placing your order.

International customers: while you're a little late for us to send you something physical, our gift subscriptions might just be the perfect fit- see below!

If you're looking for a last minute present, our gift subscriptions are the perfect fit and the gift that keeps on giving! We strongly recommend choosing email activation now, and you can order right up until midnight on Christmas eve!
