* Orders shipped via First-Class International to certain destinations may still arrive prior to December 25, but there are no guarantees. In our experience First Class *can* deliver to Europe in as little as a week, but sometimes (inexplicably) takes up to 8 weeks. For that reason we don't recommend it at all for time-sensitive orders.
*We've based our estimations on guidelines from the USPS and we hope they know what they're talking about! If you have any questions or don't see your destination listed, please email us and we'll get right back to you!
