I'm a little behind the curve this year as far as Christmas goes. I've purchased a few things here and there (some for myself, oops) but for the most part I still have a LOT more to get as far as giving goes for the holidays. The shopping I have done so far has been online. There's a few things I need to get specifically in store somewhere or I just can't come up with a good idea for someone on my *growing* shopping list.

However, if you're one of those people who HATES stepping foot into places with large crowds of people and you HATE waiting in line - online shopping is definitely a solution for you. But unfortunately, with that comes deadlines as far as shipping goes and making sure you get everything you order in time. Or maybe you're mailing something to someone else for them to have their gift from you on Christmas Day.

Here is a list of the shipping cutoff dates to keep in mind if you want your present(s) to arrive by Dec. 25, 2018.
