The holidays are upon us, and if you want to avoid any last-minute, frenzied trips to the mall, the time to shop is now. To help you spend as little as possible on shipping fees, we've collected cut-off dates for Christmas delivery at some of today's most popular retailers. A few stores will even upgrade your shipping to 2-day or next-day if you meet certain requirements. Just remember to pad your order by a few days to ensure your packages don't get tangled by winter storms or other unforeseen delays.

Please note: Some retailers have yet to post details about their holiday deadlines. We'll update our list as new deadlines become available. All times listed below are ET.

Not sure what to buy? Check out this list of gift ideas that seem expensive, but are actually pretty affordable. Or you might wait until after Christmas for some things. But if you're really at a loss, you can always go the gift card route — and score a sweet freebie for yourself in the process.
