Have you finished your Christmas shopping yet? If not, don’t worry, there’s still plenty of time to hit the shops.

But, if you want to avoid the hustle and bustle of the high street, the final deadlines for online purchases are upon us.

To make sure your gifts will be wrapped and under the tree in time for the big day, we’ve created a roundup of retailers’ last order dates for delivery before Christmas.

Of course, it’s worth noting that external factors such as strikes or adverse weather could cause disruption so, if you really want to make sure you get what you want, we suggest ordering as soon as you can. 

Amazon – Final delivery dates from Amazon depend entirely on the shipping method you select. For standard delivery you can order as late as 11:59pm on December 21 while one-day delivery orders can be submitted up until December 23 for delivery on Christmas Eve.

For people who live in cities like London, Liverpool, Glasgow or Cardiff, you also have the option of same-day evening delivery. Simply order by 12pm on Christmas Eve and you’ll receive your order later that day.
