Holiday Shipping Deadlines for 2008

Updated
Christmas is almost upon us and your gifts need to get to their destinations fast. To aid in the process, we've put together a list of holiday shipping deadlines for Christmas Eve delivery. Our list includes dates that are verified and guaranteed by each vendor. Nevertheless, we recommend padding your delivery with an extra day or two to cover any unexpected delays caused by weather or other uncontrollable circumstances. Check back frequently as we'll be updating our chart periodically with additional vendors and deadlines. In the mean time, browse through our list below and remember to mark your calendars.
