Christmas is less than 10 days away, people, and you don’t need us to remind you that it’s likely to be a tad different this year. The continued spread of Coronavirus means we’re unlikely to see as many friends and family members as we’d like – but things aren’t all bad. There are actually lots of benefits to having a quieter-than-usual Christmas, plus, we can still treat our loved ones from afar.
If you’re still sending presents to your nearest and dearest this year, you’ll want to make sure they arrive on time. So, we’ve taken it upon ourselves to track down the final delivery dates for the brands you’re likely to be making a beeline for.
When do you need to place your Net-A-Porter order if you want your gifts by Christmas Eve? Will Cult Beauty ship orders of Drunk Elephant / Olaplex / Hourglass if you order as late as 21st December? Can I order a Charlotte Tilbury gift set for my sister this week and have it at her front door in time for the big day? So. Many. Questions. Here are all the answers…
