I’ve seen a couple of these popping up on my social media feeds: people leaving snacks out for delivery drivers who are working around the clock to make sure we get our holiday gifts under the tree in time.

As the holiday season approaches, here are the important delivery deadlines to keep in mind:

UPS: December 13 

USPS: December 14 

FedEx: December 16

Beyond these dates, prepare to pay more for expedited shipping (unless you’re an Amazon Prime member) and remember, delivery drivers are the real MVP’s out there dealing with harsh driving conditions, traffic and looming deadlines…so maybe consider doing something nice for them this season.
