I've been wondering what may be the most realistic date to recommend for order deadlines for likely receival of their order before Christmas. In particular to the US, UK and other international countries.
At the moment I'm thinking mailing by mid November might safe.still be safe.
What do you think, and what have you found from past Christmases?

it's probably best to have a chat to your local post office about this. Usually Australia post have their recommended dates on their website. I would recommend late nov or very early dec at the latest for ready to ship items and earlier for custom items.
Also include christmas cut off dates now in your shop announcement and shipping notifications for any buyers who are looking around now.
hope that helps
