Deck the Halls, But Don’t Dash Through the Post Office: A Guide to Holiday Shipping Deadlines in 2023

The holidays are a time for joy, family, and…frantic shipping! To avoid last-minute meltdowns and ensure your gifts arrive on time, mastering the maze of holiday shipping deadlines is crucial. So, grab a cup of cocoa and let’s navigate the festive delivery landscape:



Ground Advantage™: December 16th, 2023. This service offers reliable delivery within 2-6 business days, making it a good option for heavier items or those not in a rush.

Priority Mail: December 18th, 2023. For a faster and more predictable delivery (usually 1-3 business days), Priority Mail is your go-to. Just be prepared for slightly higher costs.

Priority Mail Express®: December 20th, 2023. Need your gift across the country by Christmas Eve? Priority Mail Express® guarantees delivery by 10:30 am the next business day, but be prepared to pay a premium.



FedEx Express Saver®: December 19th, 2023. This service offers 3-day delivery at a competitive price, making it a good option for larger or last-minute gifts.

FedEx 2Day®: December 21st, 2023. For guaranteed 2-day delivery, choose Fed Ex 2Day®. It’s faster than Express Saver® but comes at a slightly higher cost.

FedEx Ground®: December 15th, 2023. This budget-friendly option delivers in 3-7 business days, making it suitable for non-urgent gifts or those closer to home.



UPS 3 Day Select®: December 19th, 2023. Similar to FedEx 2Day®, this service guarantees delivery within 3 business days.

UPS 2nd Air®: December 20th, 2023. For guaranteed 2-day delivery across the country, UPS 2nd Air® is a reliable choice.

UPS Ground®: NOW until December 15th, 2023. Offering delivery within 5-7 business days, UPS Ground® is a cost-effective option for non-urgent gifts or those within your region.


Pro Tip: These are just general deadlines, and specific times may vary depending on your origin and destination. Always double-check with your chosen carrier for the most up-to-date information.

Remember, the earlier you ship, the less stress you’ll experience. So, grab your wrapping paper, make a list, and check those deadlines twice!


Happy holidays and happy shipping!
