It’s the most stressful time of the year! The holidays are here, folks. You know what that means: Spending and sending. Waiting and worrying. It’s bound to be hectic for the next month or two. But to help you cope with the holiday season, we’ve compiled a list of holiday shipping deadlines for all the big retailers. We can’t do your holiday shopping for you—but we can help ensure your holiday gifts are delivered on time.

The key is to prep early. Make your shopping list. Take advantage of Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals. Make sure all your bills are paid up, so you don’t get any surprises. And keep an eye on these holiday shipping deadlines for 2019, so you know your gifts will arrive in time for Christmas.

Before we get into all that, though, here’s a quick rundown of the holiday deadlines for all your shipping options:

USPS

  • Retail Ground: December 14
  • First Class Mail & Priority Mail: December 20
  • Priority Mail Express: December 22

FedEx

  • Express Saver: December 20
  • 2-Day Shipping: December 21
  • Overnight: December 24
  • Same Day: December 14

UPS

  • Ground Shipping: December 17
  • 3-Day Select: December 18
  • Next Day Air: December 22

All that said: Shipping sucks. it just does. But it never sucks more than it does during the holidays.

So our advice? Order gifts online, and have them shipped directly to the person on your Christmas list. You’ll avoid the lines. More importantly, you’ll avoid the hassle, and the headache.

Most retailers offer gift wrapping of some sort, especially if you order early enough. It usually doesn’t cost much—but whatever it costs, it’s absolutely, positively, 100 percent worth it to not have to step into a post office in the month of December. That’s our two cents, take it or don’t.

So if you’re wondering about holiday shipping deadlines for 2019, here are the drop-dead shipping deals and deadlines from some of Men’s Journal‘s favorite retailers. Note that these deadlines are for standard, regular shipping in the continental US. Many outlets will require a minimum purchase to qualify for free shipping; most will offer expedited shipping—usually at an extra charge.

Happy holidays, and good luck!
