With Thanksgiving passed, Christmas is coming quickly, and that means millions are shopping for Christmas gifts.

If you’re ordering gifts that need to be shipped, it’s better to do that sooner to be sure they arrive on time.

Three major shipping companies in the U.S. include FedEx, UPS, and the USPS. All have shared their deadlines for shipping this year. The Christmas holiday is on a Sunday this year, so it’s better to mail your gifts earlier.
