So, you’ve got their annual holiday wish lists. And added everything to the cart. But… there’s just one little problem: You forgot to hit Buy (we get it, you were busy) and now you’re not so sure the gifts will arrive on their doorstep in time for December 25th.

don’t worry Tons of retailers have provided specific details of when their ‘cut-off dates’ are to order the perfect gift and ensure it’s wrapped and ready under the tree in no time.

In other words, you still have a little time to make Santa proud with how well you’ve planned your gift-giving — but not for long.

UPS Holiday Delivery Deadlines for 2023

To make sure your thoughtful, hand-wrapped gift isn’t sent to waste and actually arrives by Christmas and Kwanzaa (it’s a little too late for Hanukkah, we’re afraid), here are the UPS-specific shipping deadlines you need to know:

  • Send to 19 Dec (with “Choice of 3 days” delivery)

  • Send to 20 Dec (with 2nd Day Air delivery)

  • Send to 21 Dec (with Next Day Air Delivery)

If you’re interested in ground shipping, you can estimate how quickly your package will reach its destination on the UPS site (by entering your zip code and shipping date). The company says 90% of all UPS ground packages are delivered in three days or less, so use this information wisely.
