It is just over a week until Christmas Day so it is not long to get everything organised. 

If you are sending cards and gifts, you need to ensure that you are posting them early enough so they arrive on time. 

Royal Mail have released its last post dates before Christmas.  Its website advises that you should allow plenty of time for posting.

With the ongoing Covid restrictions, the high volume of parcels and the winter weather, Royal Mail has had issues with transportation and local delivery around the world. 

Unfortunately, some of the international delivery deadlines for International Economy, International Standard and International tracking and signature services have passed.
