Eliminate added stress this year by shipping online and planning ahead. We recommend shipping early to avoid delays from holiday volume, weather delays, and the unexpected. If getting your package to its destination in time for the holidays is important to you, be sure to get it out early. We recommend sending packages inside the United States by the second week in December and for those going to APO, FPO, or DPO locations by mid-November. Most military packages take about 2 weeks to arrive but we've seen them take 6 weeks in some cases.
