Helpful Chart Ensures Your Christmas Gifts Arrive on Time


If you haven’t had the chance to mail Christmas gifts to loved ones just yet, we’ve totally been there. The holiday season is always a busy time of making our lists and checking them twice. It can feel even more hectic when we try to remember all the Christmas shipping deadlines at once. Luckily, we don’t have to anymore, because the software company ShipStation has arrived to save the day and help you make sure you can still mail by Christmas.

ShipStation is giving us all a huge helping hand this holiday season with a super useful infographic that includes all the shipping deadlines to make sure your gifts arrive at their destination by Christmas Day. The chart showcases the schedules for USPS, FedEx, and UPS, breaking them down by all the different holiday shipping services they offer, like USPS Priority Mail or FedEx Express Saver.

The bad news? Some of these deadlines have already passed, so you might need to cough up a little extra cash to make sure that your gift arrives on time for the big day. But the good news is that quite a few services are still available to use. Give the chart a close look to weigh out your options and figure out which one is the best for you this holiday season — and you may need to use multiple options to make sure your gifts reach loved ones in various places.

Wow! We wish we had a chart like this back in the day — it would have been a huge help! But we’re so glad it’s here now and that we can rest easy knowing that we have choices available even when we’re guilty of procrastinating a bit (hey, we’ve all done it!). Even in the worst-case scenario, there is always FedEx Same Day Delivery if you really find yourself down to the wire.

And if you haven’t started Christmas shopping yet? Well, this chart can’t help you there, but you can check out our gift guide for food enthusiasts, gift ideas for men, and relaxing at-home spa gifts for some inspiration.

Happy holiday deliveries to you!
