If you are considering buying someone one of our books for Christmas, now is the time to do so.

UK orders: The deadline for guaranteed UK Christmas delivery with “Standard” or “Premium” delivery is quickly approaching has passed. Except...

UPDATE: Even though the Christmas delivery deadline for most of our books has passed, we do still have a handful of some of our most popular titles available and will do our best to get them to you in time for Christmas if you order before midday on Monday 21 December! And, best of all, they have some pretty good last-minute discounts too. Please see this page for full details and the list of available books.

Orders placed after this date may still be delivered in time to be put in stockings, but we can’t guarantee it. Please note that no guarantees are made for free or Economy delivery.

International orders: Due to delays in the international postal system caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, we are unfortunately not able to guarantee delivery times outside the UK. We will strive to get orders to you as quickly as possible, but we can’t promise that it will be in time for Christmas.

Why is the deadline so early? We use a production process called print-on-demand, which means your books are printed once your order has been placed, specially for you. Unfortunately this sometimes results in increased lead times, especially around Christmas. The dates above are the dates we have been given by our printers for guaranteed Christmas delivery.

What happens if your books don’t arrive before Christmas as promised? You can either request a refund of the delivery charges, or return your order to us for a full refund. However, you must contact us and await confirmation before you return your order.
