These dates are provided by the Royal Mail and DHL, and are recommended dates. In some instances, parcels sent later than those dates above, may still arrive in time for Christmas, although this cannot be guaranteed. Also, factors that may affect Christmas deliveries, such as bad weather or unpredicted volumes may also affect the ability of postal services to deliver in time for Christmas.
