Shoppers have less than a week left if they want to order Christmas presents online without paying extra charges.

Most major retailers will be taking orders for Christmas until the 18th December for standard delivery options.

Apple,, The Body Shop, H. Samuel, House of Fraser and Waterstones all offer standard delivery options in time for Christmas until around the 18th.

After the 18th December – next Thursday – most last-minute present hunters will have to use next-day and express delivery options if they want their gifts to arrive before the 25th.

ASOS, Amazon, Debenhams, House of Fraser, Selfridges and WH Smith are all promising Christmas gift delivery for orders right up until the 23rd December – but only with express delivery.

Shoppers wanting to use standard delivery at ASOS will have run out of time by early next week – Monday the 15th. Amazon’s standard delivery option will do the job until the 19th.
