The holiday season always flies by faster than expected. There's just over a week of shopping time left before the holidays are upon us, but there is still time to pick up some last-minute gifts for golfers on your list.

Keep in mind that next week will be the busiest time of the holiday mailing season, with 2.3 billion 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 Tuesday, Dec. 21 and the last day for 2nd Day Air is Wednesday, Dec. 22. Next Day Air is available until Thursday, Dec. 23rd, but it will cost you. FedEx's last day for Express Saver shipments to be delivered by Christmas is Dec. 21. If you're Amazon-heavy, you can order with standard shipping up until the 19th. 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.

The shipping deadline for custom products, like MyJoys, has passed, but expedited shopping will get regular items delivered before Christmas. A pair of FootJoy Flex golf shoes is a gift any golfer will love and this limited edition design is one they likely haven’t seen before.

Stitch Golf’s overnight shipping option will arrive in time for Christmas. The express 2-day delivery option cutoff is December 17. The SL2 Golf Bag from Stitch is one of those gifts that will make them feel like a kid on Christmas morning opening it up. It’s a luxe bag made with durable, water-resistant leather and an ultra-lightweight construction.

We’ve seen a couple of golf meets tailgating games hit the market in the past couple years. Putterball is unique for being a casual, putting-specific game that anyone can play. With six holes on each side and turf-hole covers for each, it’s just like beer pong: You make a putt, you cover it with turf, and you play until all holes are made. Simple concept that any age or skill level can compete with, and the 12-foot-by-two-foot boards are easy to fold up and transport from a backyard to your car and to a tailgate.
