We’re getting well and truly into the festive spirit now, and hope you are too! To help you shop with ease and minimum stress, we thought we’d share our Christmas postage deadlines well in advance to give you plenty of time to prepare and plan gifts.

Last Postage Dates for Christmas:
UK – Thurs 22nd Dec
Europe – Fri 16th Dec
Rest of world – Fri 9th Dec

Please remember this is an extra busy time for independent businesses and these dates are a guide only so please do try and order as far in advance as possible to avoid disappointment.


With today being #SmallBusinessSaturday, there’s never been a better time to shop with indie brands! While we love a good Black Friday bargain as much as the next person, Small Business Saturday means so much to us as we get to help support other hard working small businesses, which we know ourselves can make a big difference. By shopping with small and local businesses, you’re helping to create jobs in the local community as well as helping individuals continue creating and selling the things you know and love them for – customers are what keeps a business going, and your choices have a direct impact on the survival of a brand.

In return, you get a product or service that’s more unique, with more heart put into its creation and something of value that you just can’t put a price on. You’re helping people live their dream every day, all just by choosing to shop with small businesses. So make sure you shop small this Saturday, and let us know your favourite small businesses in the comments.

We’ll be out at local craft and Christmas fayres this weekend to help do our bit, and are particularly looking forward to seeing lots of fab local designers at the Etsy Dorset Team Christmas Craft Fair today!


Lots of Love
Betty and Team Blue’s xxx
