Shopping for the holidays can be tough, especially if you wait until the last minute. As we get closer to Christmas Day, shipping carriers and businesses get bogged down, making it harder to be sure you'll get your gifts on time. Finding the perfect gift for your awkward cousin may still be up to you, but we can do the work of letting you know when to order it.

With e-commerce thriving and more packages being shipped than ever, cutoff dates for holiday delivery are much earlier than we've seen in previous years, limiting your options if you're still looking. Fear not, though, there is hope. While this list is by no means exhaustive, we were able to compile shipping cutoff dates for a number of our favorite brands and retailers that are still able to deliver by December 24. Keep in mind, some of these offer curbside pickup or digital gift cards, which may be a great option if you're in a pinch.
