Christmas 2017 Posting Dates, Plus Our Wrap and Pack Service
We’ve pulled together information from Royal Mail, DPD and DHL, so you can get your post and presents ready and dispatched before it’s too late.
We’d also like to take the chance to tell you about our Wrap and Pack Service, which is perfect for those last minute gifts you’ve been meaning to buy, or for people that are sending multiple presents to the UK.
Shop and Ship, Wrap and Pack
Wrap and Pack lets you send gifts to your UK Postbox Account for us to wrap and send onto your loved ones. It may be you’re overseas, sending multiple gifts to different people and addresses across the UK, the last thing you want to do is pay for international carriage multiple times. Send them as a single consignment to us, we’ll split them down and send them onto to your friends and family. You can also buy gifts online, get them shipped to us and we’ll wrap and send them on.
For that added touch of personalisation why not send us pre-written cards and gift tags? We’ll match them up with the presents you’ve sent and get it all delivered before the big day.For more information visit our UK Shop and Ship page or drop us a message with any questions you might have.
