Dates To Ship Gifts From The QCA In Time For Christmas
One of my favorite Christmas memories is of helping my Mom buy, pack and ship gifts for family and friends out of town.
With the advent of the internet, you don't even have to see the gifts you send to others, but there is still something special about grabbing something uniquely local to the Quad Cities and shipping it off.
There are lots of uniquely Quad Cities gift ideas like Boetje's mustard, Lagomarcino treats, Mississippi River Distilling Co. libations and more you can send to friends and fam around the country.
If you are planning on shipping gifts, here is a list of dates you need to get them in the mail for delivery in time for Christmas:
|DOMESTIC MAIL CLASS/PRODUCT||Date (excluding Alaska & Hawaii|
|First-class Mail® Service||Dec. 19th|
|Priority Mail® Service||Dec. 20th|
|Priority Mail Express® Service||Dec. 22nd|
|USPS Retail Ground™||Dec. 14th|
If your gift is going to Alaska or Hawaii, following this guide:
|DESTINATION||FIRST-CLASS MAIL® SERVICE||PRIORITY MAIL® SERVICE||PRIORITY MAIL® EXPRESS SERVICE|
|Alaska||Dec. 20th||Dec. 20th||Dec. 21st|
|Hawaii||Dec. 15th||Dec. 15th||Dec. 20th|
Always double-check with the USPS as dates can change due to weather.
