Christmas Order Dates


Here at Hellwood we hope that all of our friends, customers, occasional visitors and regulars are staying safe and following whatever advice has been given for wherever you are in the world.


Christmas will soon be upon us and this year the silly season is looking like being a little different than ever before. 

As the world still struggles to get on top of the current pandemic that is afflicting all of us, businesses are facing uncertainty. While on the positive side online shopping looks like being very popular this year, we have to manage potential huge sales increases with reduced operating staff, stock availability and already strained postal systems. Because of this, making any sort of guarantee of Christmas delivery is going to be very difficult as so many factors are beyond our control and the situation is changing daily. All I can say is that we will do our very best.

As a guide, the following dates show the last order date for orders to stand a good chance of being received for Xmas. Orders placed after these dates may still arrive in time, but the chances are slimmer. Our best advice... buy early to avoid disappointment.

25th November Africa, Asia, Caribbean, Central & South America, Far & Middle East
26th November Cyprus, Malta, Eastern Europe (except Slovakia), New Zealand, Turkey, Canada, Finland, Italy, Sweden
3rd December Austria, Denmark, Germany, Iceland, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Slovakia, Spain, Switzerland
3rd December USA
6th December Belgium, France, Ireland, Luxembourg
7th December UK


Currently we have no firm dates for shipments to Australia but I will update this as soon as I know anymore.

Please keep in mind that these dates are based on the current lead times of our third party printers (approximately 7 days) and the published delivery estimates of the various postal carriers used.
