  • If you send them by surface you should mail them at least 6 weeks prior to Christmas.  Surface is cheaper than air.

  • Send them now just to be sure.

  • We sent to my brother in Iraq shortly after Thanksgiving, and even when it was terribly busy he had them within 2 weeks. No special stuff, just basic delivery using flat-rate boxes.

  • I would say at least 3 weeks.
