Last minute Christmas shopping

xmas shopping.jpg

Yes, it's the week of Christmas day and yes, there's some pretty serious snow across the country. However, if you desperately need to do some last minute shopping and can't get to the shops, there's still some online stores that may be able to come to your rescue...

Abel & Cole

When the snow hit, the team at Abel & Cole sprung into action, investing in grit and tyre chains and delivering through the night. So, depending on where you live (every area has different delivery days), then you should still be able to order your organic, seasonal veg and fruit box and other festive food in-time for the big day. Abelandcole.co.uk.


If your area's relatively snow-free, you can still order beautiful home accessories (including table linen and tableware) from Habitat until 12.45 on Tuesday 21st December.Habitat.co.uk.


If you need that dress, those shoes or accessories then Topshop will deliver – as long as it’s via their Express delivery service and you place the order before 6pm on 23 December (although they can't guarantee deliver to certain postcodes in Scotland, North Lincolnshitre, East Yorkshire, Wales and Northern Ireland). Topshop.com.


If you live in London, don’t have time to hit the shops and you’ve left your shopping to the last second then Selfridges.com could be your saviour. They offer same day delivery for selected items within London till 11am on 24 December. Selfridges.com.

Fortnum & Mason

Anyone would be delighted to receive a Fortnum’s hamper this Christmas, especially if it’s filled with their delicious goodies. Order before midnight 21 December (although be advised that, whilst most order should be delivered in time for Christmas, not all postcodes are guaranteed). Fortnumandmason.com.

Westfield Gift Card

Forget gift cards being unoriginal - a Westfield Gift Card is the perfect treat that is sure to be well-received. They can be bought in person from Westfield London, Westfield Derby, Merry Hill, Royal Victoria Place and The Friary Shopping Centre, or else for delivery online - with an overnight courier service available. Westfield.com

With the adverse weather conditions changing daily, we advise double-checking with the retailer for any orders you need delivering in time for Christmas.
