Last Posting Dates for Christmas.

Hi Everyone! 

I can't believe I'm saying this but the shops are full of Christmas again! Where did 2019 go??!  If that wasn't enough to cope with I am also being told that some people have actually finished their Christmas shopping and are even thinking about putting up their trees! Madness!  If you are not one of these super organised people then please don't worry, you are certainly in good company ;)  However, I have to say that if your Christmas plans include new sprays, or gifts of new sprays, for your friends and loved ones then I am going to put a tiny bit of pressure on and advise you to order very soon.  While of course we will be working as hard as ever to ensure that your orders are turned around quickly - with the added help of Santa and his Elves of course - sadly we have no control over what happens after your orders leave our glitter sprinkled spray grotto.  Bear in mind that customs centres around the world are always extra busy at this time of year and there is inevitably a back log.  We would hate for you to be disappointed so please, please, place orders needed by Christmas very soon.  Now even.  We are having a quiet time at the moment so it's a great time to do it.

Here are the official last posting dates:

In the UK: Royal Mail 1st Class:  The official last posting date is Friday 20th December, so you would need to have placed your order in enough time for us to get it ready to post on that day and we are likely to be very busy.  So I'd get it to us by Friday 13th at the latest if you can.

If you are not in the UK, here are the dates for you.  Bear in mind these are posting dates, we are unlikely to be able to send your order out on the same day as we receive it during December so I would recommend you allow at least 10 to 14 days before these last recommended posting dates. So for Canada/US, your last posting date is Sat 14th, we don't work on Saturday so it will need to be sent Friday 13th.  You should therefore have your order in by the 3rd December if possible.

All of us at Spray HQ, Tracy, Michelle, Brooke and Linda, would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your support in 2019, we've had a few staff changes and a new shop/website to get to grips with and the inevitable glitches and mistakes occur.  You have to be the nicest, most understanding customers anywhere!  You really are, and we so appreciate all your lovely emails too, it's so nice to hear how happy people are when their orders arrive and that you appreciate what we do here.  We love you all and wish you the very best Christmas ever and may 2020 bring you joy, health and abundance in all things. 

Tracy xx
