Doing some last-minute Christmas shopping? Don’t panic just yet – there’s still time for shipping.

Brands’ shipping dates

It’d be great to take note of your favourite brands’ last day of shipping if you plan on buying your gifts from them. Many of these brands will cease offering close-to-deadline deliveries.

 There was a rise in this type of service in previous years, where you can order until 10p.m. on Christmas eve for next-day delivery, but things are changing this year.

You can always sign up to each one’s newsletter for updates, but I’ve compiled a list of some of the brands we usually shop for below. Here are the key dates you need to know to get your order before Christmas.
