Christmas and Epiphany Shipping Deadlines


It's crunch time if you need to get your presents by Christmas day so here's some quick information to help you choose the best shipping method:

Package deliveries using 2-day or Next day service are guaranteed to get there by Christmas (or your shipping is free) within the continental United States if you order in stock items (These items say: Availability: In Stock.) and:

  • You order by noon Mountain Time (2 hrs earlier than Eastern) on Wednesday Dec. 22nd  and choose 2 day shipping.
  • You order by noon Mountain Time on Thursday Dec. 23rd and choose next day shipping.

Due to the high volume of packages, the US Post Office recommends all Priority Mail shipments be made by December 16th and all standard shipments be made by December 13th in order be sure of Christmas delivery.

If you really want to give a gift on Christmas but can't afford to pay for expedited shipping, you can click the "gift image" link below our product pictures to get an easy-to-print image of the gift! Just pop it in a card and let the recipient know that Christmas comes more than once this year!

If none of these options will work, it's time for plan C: start a new tradition of giving gifts on Epiphany - January 3rd (liturgically) or January 6th (traditionally)!
