2019 Holiday Shipping Deadlines: When to Send Your Gifts So They Arrive in Time!

We love these products, and we hope you do too. E! has affiliate relationships, so we may get a small share of the revenue from your purchases. Items are sold by the retailer, not E!.

Time is slowly ticking down on holiday shopping… can you believe we’re only two weeks away from Christmas?! That also means that shipping deadlines are looming!

Whether you’re shopping for yourself or someone else, having gifts sent directly to your intended from the stores you shop, or putting in a personal touch by wrapping and shipping everything yourself, this handy list will help you figure out your drop-dead deadline for shipping gifts so they arrive just in time for the holidays.
