When will the supermarkets’ Christmas items be available to buy?
Of course, we still have a little while to go before Christmas so not all of these items are available to buy right now.
The majority of the M&S Christmas 2021 range can be ordered online, for delivery after November 2nd. On the other hand, Aldi is starting the sale of some items as early as October 25th, while you won't be able to get your hands on the Specially Selected Choux Rings until December 21st.
The Morrisons’ Best Morello Cherry Bakewell Mince Pies are already on sale in stores, but the rest of the festive selection will be available to buy across scattered dates in November and December.
Tesco’s Christmas 2021 range is available to customers at different dates depending on the item, starting from October 25th.
Finally, Sainsbury’s will be putting its Christmas range on sale at scattered dates, starting as early as October 27th until December 20th.
When are Tesco Christmas delivery slots available to book, and other supermarkets?
While supermarkets and retail expects are emphasising that there is no need to panic buy, Christmas delivery slots are known to disappear quickly.
Make sure you and your family get all you want for Christmas dinner by securing your online slot early.
Although Christmas delivery slots are not yet available to book at Tesco, shoppers on the Tesco’s Delivery Saver scheme can book their slots from 6am on 16 November.
Slots for non-Delivery Saver customers will be available from 6am on 23 November.
It costs £6.99 a month to become a Delivery Saver, which means you get free delivery on groceries over a minimum spend and priority access to prime time slots.
For everyone else, click-and-collect slots can be booked up to three weeks in advance.
Shoppers will be able to get priority booking on Christmas delivery slots with the Sainsbury’s Delivery Pass, starting at £10 for three months.
To guarantee delivery of your festive food before Christmas, Sainsbury’s has said that food orders should be done by midnight on December 16th.
Asda only offers a click and collect service only for online shoppers.
Many of their Christmas items, including the hampers, are now available for delivery before Christmas.
Delivery Pass holders at Morrisons can book two deliveries between December 20th and 24th for any last-minute requests.
General Christmas delivery slots are not available to book at the moment.
