Shipping deadlines for the festive period
We will continue to process and dispatch orders throughout the entirety of December per our normal schedule. However, the festive period is a busy time for our warehouse and delivery teams. Depending on where your order is being sent across the world, you should be able to expect delivery in most places in time for Christmas if your order is placed on or before 14:00 GMT on the 19th December 2019.
If you are concerned that an order may not reach you in time, we also offer Gift E-vouchers which can be purchased at any time and delivered by email on a date of your choosing. Apidura Gift E-vouchers can be purchased via the shop pages.
