last recommended posting dates in time for christmas

Ahh, it’s coming up to that time of year again, although it feels like Christmas has been on the agenda since July, that’s because a lot of shows/events start organising themselves that early. I can’t even think past Christmas right now so when I got an order the other day to be personalised with a date in January – I just thought wow this person has their sh*t together!

So as we enter in November, it seems fitting to give a gentle reminder of Royal Mail’s last recommended posting dates in order for parcels to arrive before Christmas, especially if you are not based in the UK.
