Shipping Cut-off Dates for Christmas 2018

Christmas Shipping

Thinking of Christmas presents already? We certainly are and have increased our stock levels so you can make or create gifts for your loved ones, or even giving gifts so they can start a new hobby of their own!

However, don’t get caught out like a many do each year and leave it too late for your present to arrive on time for the big day.

To help you make an informed decision, here are our recommended cut-off dates on orders for Domestic and International shipping based on our carrier’s cutoffs and historical data*.  Also, we recommend you apply Authority to Leave on parcels at checkout where you can, as this reduces delivery issues.

    Hi Kim and Gavin
    I have searched the store for a thermostat to turn an old bar fridge into a cheese cave but cannot find it listed.
    Do you have any in stock?
