A shortage of truck drivers has raised fears that the British could get their hands on whatever they want on Christmas.
Marks and Spencer has already opened up slots for Christmas food drive and now other supermarkets are following suit.
Here’s what we know so far:
Delivery Saver customers can order their Christmas food delivery from Tesco starting Tuesday, November 16 at 6:00 a.m.
All other customers can reserve theirs from Tuesday 23 November at 6 a.m.
Tesco warns that slots are going fast, encouraging customers to add a reminder so they don’t miss a thing.
Tesco Delivery Saver costs £ 7.99 per month and allows you to get daily deliveries or collections, if you want, for that one set amount.
To be considered if you want to arrive early with your reservation.
We asked Morrisons when they would open reservations, but they said it would be “in due course”.
Last year, slots opened around November 25, according to i News.
Amazon Prime customers can have their Morrisons store delivered through the site, but the normal delivery charge is between £ 2-5.
Morrisons also offers an anytime pass, available for £ 8 per month or £ 5 per month for midweek deliveries.
The supermarket offers a series of delivery passes that entitle you to free delivery at any time during specified periods.
BirminghamLive has contacted Sainsbury’s to find out when their Christmas delivery slots will open and we will update this article when we receive a response.
Last year, they became available around November 29, according to The Mirror.

Asda’s Christmas delivery times have yet to be announced, although BirminghamLive has approached them for information.
Last year they were released in November, so it will be interesting to see if they stay the same this year, given concerns about shortages.
Delivery with Asda costs between £ 1 and £ 7, depending on the day and time of your order.
There is a minimum spend of £ 40.
