If you are trying to get that special christmas gift to loved ones... You only have a few days left to get it in the mail.

Postal officials say if you drop off your packages by Thursday, they will be delivered by Tuesday using priority mail. But they say there is an alternative if you need it shipped overnight on Christmas Eve.

Lori Phemister with the Postal Service, "If customers find they are down to the last minute, we do deliver on christmas day...we do deliver express mail, so they certainly need to look at that."

Here are some average prices for packages shipped using priority mail. Meaning your gifts arrive 2 to 3 days after you send them.
