For standard shipping, the deadlines are Dec. 13th for UPS, the 14th for the Postal Service and the 16th for FedEx.

For priority shipping both FedEx and UPS want your boxes or packages by Dec. 19 and 20, the 20th and 21st for the Postal Service.

For the fastest of all deliveries, overnight shipping, all three want your package in hand by no later than Dec. 23rd.
