Recommended “Ship By” dates to arrive by December 25th, 2021

Please keep in mind that these are the recommended cut-off dates issued by the carriers, however, we recommend adding two (2) additional business days to these dates, based on what we have seen in terms of service levels and inconsistency over the past several months due to COVID-19 pandemic (this would be in addition to the times EFS requires for order processing). *

If there are any additional updates we feel should be made, we will inform you as soon as possible – this includes but is not limited to international shipping suspensions and delays, and any other service issues we see arising during the coming season.

Situations can change daily for international shipments.


*Please remember that you should add at least two (2) additional business days to these dates for the required order processing time as well.
