Is it too early to get to work on sending holiday gifts to loved ones overseas? Of course not. (Pass along our Merry Christmas, and this website, for another slice of Wyoming home.)

For delivery by Christmas to U.S. Military and APO/FPO, it depends on the destination, but for most, these cutoff dates apply:

December 9 for Priority Packages and First-Class Cards and Letters.
December 16 for Priority Express Mail.

The Postal Service offers a $2 discount on its largest Flat Rate Priority Box when sent to an APO/FPO/DPO address.

USPS offers a free Military Kit including:
Two Priority Mail APO/FPO/DPO Flat Rate Boxes
Two Priority Mail Medium Flat Rate Boxes
Priority Mail tape
Priority Mail address labels
To order the kit, call 800-610-8734.

For domestic Christmas mail to arrive by December 25, the USPS deadlines are:

Standard post - December 15
First Class mail - December 20
Priority mail - December 21
