Don't Panic—These Supply Chain-Proof Gfts are Guarenteed to Arrive Before Christmas
Photo: Scouted/The Daily Beast/Retailers.To be honest, when it comes to holiday gift shopping, I don’t have the best track record. Frankly, every single year that I can remember I’ve done all of my holiday shopping literally on Christmas Eve—and no, I do not advise doing this. Naturally, given the last-minute nature of shopping habits, I’ve also been known to forget a person or two on my list thanks in large part to poor planning and, well, procrastination. As you can imagine, these bad habits make it hard to shop online for gifts that will arrive before Christmas. This year is particularly anxiety-inducing for us historically last-minute gift shoppers thanks to the ongoing supply chain issues we’re experiencing, which has led most e-commerce brands and retailers to cut off their holiday shipping deadline much earlier than years prior. For reference, this year the shipping deadline for items to arrive by Christmas eve is December 15, although there is a large laundry list of e-tailers with earlier cut-off dates.As a bona fide holiday-hater with a penchant for procrastination, I’ve become pretty well-versed in the art of finding last-minute gifts that’ll arrive before Christmas but don’t scream “I waited until the very last second to find your gift.” And thankfully, some big-box retailers like Nordstrom and Amazon have added labels to their product listings that let the shopper know whether or not the item will arrive before Christmas when purchased that day, so it’s easier than ever before to shop in a pinch.Read more at The Daily Beast.
