As it gets closer to Christmas, shipping and even regular mail tend to get backed up. It can take a long time to get your orders. So, are you willing to pay extra for rush shipping to make sure things get there in time for Christmas? Will you go so far as to pay for overnight shipping, which can be very expensive? Maybe you're well-prepared and don't find yourself in this situation. I try not to let it get down to the wire like that, but I have found cool things at the last minute before. Would you wait to buy something like that for a birthday or another holiday, or would you pay extra for shipping and get it now?
