The holiday season is in full swing and that means consumers will need to watch deadlines to be sure to get any packages by December 25.

The last day to mail out gifts for ground delivery via the United States Postal Service is December 15.

The same date applies for FedEx packages sent through ground and home delivery, though December 9 is the deadline for anything needing freight delivery.

UPS, meanwhile, is urging customers to get their packages sent out by December 21 if they want any gifts to make it by December 25.
