This Christmas season we're here to help you give the gift of cosiness!
Many of you are already Christmas shopping and some are worried about possible delays, so we thought it might be useful to give you an inside track on what's happening at The British Blanket Company in the run-up to Christmas to help you plan ahead...
LATEST UPDATE 23rd December: We will be dispatching on a reduced schedule over the festive period. Orders will be dispatched intermittently, but please be aware that orders placed between Christmas and New Year, may not be dispatched until the first week of January. Returns and exchanges will be processed after the New Year.
Our brilliant British mills have already woven lots of lovely stock for us and we're restocking our shelves weekly between now and Christmas. While we can't guarantee every design will arrive every week, we've forecasted thoroughly to try and minimise gaps.
We have no plans to participate in the Black Friday frenzy - we're all about offering high quality and great value for money all year round. If you'd like to get ahead and shop early with us, you can feel confident we won't slash prices further down the line.
GIFT NOTES & PACKAGING
Order on our website and have a gift shipped directly to the recipient by simply adding their details as the shipping address. While we don't offer a gift wrapping service, we have beautifully-designed thick paper mailing bags that look lovely arriving in the post. You can also add a gift message during checkout.
All orders placed between 8th November and 24th December can be exchanged for a different design of the same price until 7th January 2022. For refunds, our usual 14 day policy applies.
If you're really not sure which blanket or scarf they'll like best, we sell digital gift cards too!
The couriers we use (Royal Mail and DPD) are delivering most parcels within their usual speedy timescales. However, a few local areas are under pressure due to Covid and driver shortages. Christmas disruptions are possible so we recommend placing your order as soon as you can to avoid anxiety. Our superstar warehouse team dispatch orders daily Monday - Friday and we have added extra shifts so we can keep up!
