Christmas is just days away and if you have family and friends who live out of town, Christmas shopping has added stress for you. Not only do you have to shop for those non-El Pasoans, you have to pack and ship their gifts with plenty of time to get to them by Christmas.

You don't have too much longer to ship if you are going to use the US Post Office to get your packages where they need to go. These are the ship-by dates for your packages if you hope to get them to where they are going before Santa day. These are only for shipping within the contiguous United States. International ship-by dates and ship-by dates for Alaska and Hawaii can be found on the USPS website.
