    If you are planning on shipping gifts for the holidays, you better do it soon.

    One United States Postal Service deadline is less than a week away.

    Items being mailed by USPS’s ground shipping option must be processed by Dec. 14. The deadline for first class shipping is Dec. 19.

    The postal office’s priority and priority express deadlines are Dec. 20 and Dec. 22, respectively — but they will cost you more.

    Shipping for an item that fits in a flat rate box will cost a little over $18, if mailed by Dec. 23. Shipping a 9 pound package could cost more than $60.
