It's one of the last holiday shipping deadlines, so you can expect a big crowd at the post office!

And, that includes mailing and shipping off presents.

The U.S. Postal Service is expected to deliver about 15 billion pieces of mail and 850 million packages this holiday season.

You can avail of express post tomorrow if you really need to get something delivered and can't make it to the post office today. 200 million packages are delivered each week starting from December 11 through Christmas Eve. "It's about three times more items than the next busiest day".

Christmas opening hours details are available in each delivery office.

"They've been having lots of activities, so I've been up and down the highway", Norwood said.




Currys PC World, Asos, Very and Littlewoods are also accepting orders until late on December 23 for delivery in time for Christmas.

"We'd like to remind our customers to post early so that friends and family have longer to enjoy their Christmas greetings and to ask them all to please also use the postcode as this helps us greatly in the job that we do at this busy time".

Nearly two thirds (62 per cent) said they had used next day delivery services to receive products bought online, ahead of the next highest country, Spain, on 53 per cent.

At UPS, Thursday December 21st is the deadline, but you might still have a chance if you wait until Friday. It's pricey, though. Shipments weighing up to 25 pounds cost $235.

So, no matter which carrier you select to deliver your Christmas cards and packages this week, the best advice is to send it as soon as possible.
