As of Friday morning, we are less than two weeks away from Christmas, and Friday is the first deadline you need to know about to get your gifts under the tree in time.

If you want to send gifts through UPS ground delivery, you need to get packages to UPS today.

On Saturday, December 14, you’ll want to get your packages to the post office for standard ground delivery.

If you are using Fed-Ex, you have the weekend to get all your shopping done. Their standard ground delivery deadline is Monday, December 16.

If you want to get your gifts out last minute it will cost you more.

The three major carriers will deliver next-day air packages sent by Monday, December 23.
