Christmas 2021 – order deadlines and gift orders

As always, the run-up to Christmas is a very busy time for Royal Mail, so please place your orders as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.

The UK deadline for placing orders for pre-Christmas delivery is Sunday 19th December. We will do our best to get orders placed after this date to you before Christmas but we are unable to offer any guarantees.

The deadline for overseas customers depends on your delivery destination. Please see below for a list of deadlines for overseas destinations. Please note that due to Covid and customs backlogs, overseas deadlines aren’t guaranteed. We are currently unable to offer delivery to EU member states due to VAT implications, but we are hopeful this situation will be resolved in December. If you need any alternative or additional information, please email us via help@thenightwatchman.net.

Please note that we are only able to send merchandise to UK addresses and there are separate deadlines for merchandise orders. For pre-Christmas delivery, orders for mugs should be placed no later than Sunday 12th December and orders for other merchandise should be placed no later than Wednesday 8th December.

If you have missed the delivery deadline or have ordered an item that won’t arrive until after Christmas, you can request a gift certificate in the order notes when placing your order. We will email you the certificate which can be forwarded on or printed out as required.

If you have any other queries, please email help@thenightwatchman.net.
