Keep in mind that next week will be the busiest time of the holiday mailing season, with billions of pieces of mail expected to be delivered. To help you prepare for this, the UPS and other main shipping companies have released their holiday deadlines. The last day for UPS 3-Day Select is Dec. 20 and the last day for 2nd Day Air is Dec. 21. Next Day Air is available until Thursday, Dec. 22nd, but it will cost you. FedEx's last day for Express Saver shipments to be delivered by Christmas is Dec. 20 and the cutoff for shipping with overnight service is Dec, 22. If you're an Amazon-heavy shopper, you can order with standard shipping up until the 22nd. It all depends on the products, but Prime members have until Dec. 23 for free two-day shipping.
Now that those dates are firmly in the mind of the most procrastinating of procrastinators, here are our favorite ideas that you can still buy and wrap before the holidays.
Yeti is offering free shipping on all orders over $20 with a guaranteed delivery by the holidays—if you order by December 19.

If you are planning on doing some holiday shopping at lululemon this year, be sure to place your orders by midnight on December 19 to get items delivered by December 24. If you miss the deadline, you can also purchase gifts online and pick them up in store, if there is a lululemon nearby.
This recently launched online store features unique artwork by Chandler Withington—who worked with Tom Coyne, to make a poster of every course that had hosted the U.S. Open for Coyne's book, A Course Called.
