Blog: Procrastinators rejoice, you can still get it online by Christmas

— Alright, this week turned out to be pretty busy and your last get-it-ordered-online-or-bust deadline has flown by like nine wily reindeer.

Last minute gift panic is a Christmas tradition, but the ease of online shopping requires more planning than popping in Walmart at the last minute for a Magic Bullet food processor or Thomas the Train Pillow Pet.

Or does it?

Good news! You can still order a great gift and get it by the big day. The key is to act fast. Time ain't your friend much longer. Be forewarned, you'll probably pay the toll for burning that bridge in steep shipping charges.
