Unfortunately border restrictions prevent us from sending food items outside the EU, particularly to the USA. It is also prohibitively expensive to ship overseas because our puddings are so heavy and time-sensitive!

Simply order a pudding & ship to a different address or contact us with your gift list. If you add a gift message we will include one of our specially designed gift cards free of charge, with your message printed inside. We don’t gift wrap our Christmas Puddings, as customers have told us they prefer to know what their gift is before Christmas Day!
