Around this time of year, if you haven't already arranged shipping for an item, it's not likely to arrive by Christmas day—unless you're in London and have access to one of Crown Estate's shipping drop boxes.

To provide assistance to shoppers who are still getting their gifts at the very last minute, the Regent Street landlord has set up a branded carts where shoppers can drop off a parcel. From here, shoppers have the option to have their items sent directly to a home or hotel in the London area. Items left at the kiosk before 6 pm are guaranteed to have same-day delivery and the service is totally free to use until Christmas Day—it will become a paid service in the New Year. The self-serve carts are equipped with digital screens, where shoppers can sign in with Facebook or create an account to arrange a drop-off.
