The postal service is recommending you mail your holiday gifts early.
The week of Dec.14 through the 21 is expected to be the peak this year for the busiest time for mailing, shipping and delivery.
With more online shopping expected than ever before, the USPS is expanding Sunday deliveries in high package volume locations.
If you are sending first class mail, the recommended deadline is to ship by Dec. 18.
Starting Dec. 19, it is recommended you use priority mail to make sure your packages arrive before Christmas.
