Last-minute Christmas gift ideas

We’re putting together a gift guide for last-minute Christmas gift ideas that will go up next week and I’m looking for your suggestions.

This guide is a bit different from the others because it will only include items that are guaranteed to arrive before Christmas (within the UK). So that means items that will be posted before 21st December if using first class Royal Mail or before 23 December if using Royal Mail special delivery guaranteed, or items that can be downloaded (eg printables, knitting patterns).

This year the last postal dates for the UK are:
UK 2nd Class = Saturday 19th December
UK 1st Class and Royal Mail Signed For = Monday 21st December
Royal Mail Special Delivery Guaranteed = Wednesday 23rd December

**If you want to be included in this guide could you please add a link to your product here and make sure delivery times and the delivery method (ie Special Delivery) is clear on your listing so shoppers feel confident that if they order from you, it will arrive before Christmas. **

TIP: It can help customers find you if you add something like “last-minute gift” or “Special Delivery available within the UK” or “guaranteed Christmas delivery within the UK” to your product titles too.

Thank you!


Mr Blackbird plus all our other prints are posted 1st class signed for, so last date for posting is Monday 21st.
We will also be adding an upgrade postage so the very last date will be Wednesday 23rd :smile:

Something for everyone, including these

I’ve added an upgrade option for all items in my shop up to 23 December. Everything I sell is ready-to-ship and is usually shipped first-class within 24 hrs, but this upgrade can be added for guaranteed next day delivery.

Silk scarves are always appreciated and make great last-minute gifts: light to send, they don’t break and one size fits all!
