Don't wait to the last minute to ship your holiday gifts. (KTRK)

Christmas is coming quickly, if you're ready or not.

FedEx expects to ship up to 400 million packages this holiday season.

Mondays are typically the busiest days for FedEx and that's true for the holidays. The company normally ships 13 million packages on Mondays but that's jumped to around 26 million during the Mondays this month.

That's a record amount of packages.

If you're a last minute shopper and shipper it will cost you a lot more money to send your gifts.

In order to have your gifts arrive by Christmas day here are some important deadlines you'll need to know:

FedEx

Ground: Dec. 15
Overnight: Dec. 21

UPS

3-Day Delivery: Dec. 18
Next Day Air: Dec. 22

USPS

Standard Mail, Cards: Dec. 15
First Class, Priority: Dec. 20
Priority Express: Dec. 23

FedEx also has a new option if you're concerned about the security of your packages. FedEx on site locations at Albertson's, Kroger and Walgreens allow you to send and receive packages from the stores.
