Here’s When & Where You Can Shop If You Want Your Gifts Delivered Before Christmas Day

It’s a familiar scene. You’ve sworn off any frenzied, last-minute gift shopping and vowed to make the current holiday season your most organized and productive one yet. Then, life happens and here you are: Mere days lay between you and the enthusiastic faces of loved ones as they unwrap the presents that you’ve scoured the world to find. And, unfortunately, you haven’t even done the first Google search to identify and purchase said presents.

Alas, hope remains. StellaService, a company that tracks the customer service performance of retailers, has organized a list of the Christmas shipping cutoff deadlines — i.e., the last possible day you can order a product and have it arrive by Christmas day — for some of the top footwear and apparel sellers.

Unfortunately, since Christmas 2016 lands on a Sunday, some retailers have had to make their shipping cutoff date a day or two earlier this time around.

Nevertheless, knowledge is power, so read on for the crucial dates you need to know this holiday season.
