“If you’re relying on traditional shipping methods, whether it’s through a carrier or a retailer, it’s really risky,” said RetailMeNot’s Krstin McGrath. “Even if that retailer is promising you’ll get that item on time, there could be weather issues. It could be the case that your item is dropped off at a leasing office in your condo or your apartment, and you aren’t able to retrieve that item if that office closes early for the holidays. At this point, every day makes a difference.”

If you don’t want to chance it, many retailers offer same day pickup. You can check out online, drive to the store, and grab your items.

Another thing to remember: there are a lot of digital subscription services that make great gifts with no shipping required.
