Christmas Eve shipping deadlines are nearing

With only 17 days left until Christmas, that doesn't leave much time to get a present purchased and shipped.
Deadlines are fast approaching to get delivery by Christmas, so beware!

This season, it seems the big winners are electronics and gadgets.

    • The electronic book reader--making taking a book along easier than ever before
    • Big screen HD LCD 1080p televisions--encouraging us to spend more time at home
    • Game systems, like the Wii --keeping the kids entertained and active, but at home
    • GPS systems--helping all of us to stay on track and save gasoline
    • Cameras and camcorders--for the geeks and the creatives in the family
    • Netbooks--these little computers are all the rage everywhere
These gifts can all be bought online for ease and convenience, but watch those deadlines.  Those of you who thrive fighting crowds, looking for parking, finding the store to be "out of stock", and trying to save a dollar by spending 10 hours going from store to store--for you--there is still time for shopping!


I'm still in the midst of Christmas gift buying, and I'm sure many of you can relate.
Here's a handy guide from dealnews.com that shows some retailer's shipping deadlines for delivery by Christmas Eve. Included in this list are Amazon, Macy's, Williams-Sonoma, L.L. Bean and Best Buy.
These deadlines still are more than a week away, but it's good to keep them in mind to avoid a last-minute scramble.
