Holiday Shipping Guide 2015 for BeautyGram

by Carrie Paxson November 29, 2015

Shopping by eCommerce into December can be tricky for both the gift giver and the online retailer.  

It is important that when choosing ecommerce for holiday shopping, that we are both taking a chance on the item arriving on time.  

Based on the shipping times provided by both Canada Post and United States Postal Service (I use both services due to our proximity to the US border), please add a comfortable buffer onto both dates when ordering gifts from us this holiday season.  

Canada Post Holiday Schedule

BeautyGram Order Deadline for Christmas Delivery

  Calgary Within Province Within Canada
Expedited (Tracked) Dec 20 Dec 18 Dec 13
XpressPost Dec 21 Dec 19 Dec 18

United States Postal Service for US and International Deliveries

First class and Prioirty mail in the United States, I need your order by NOON on December 18, 2015 for Christmas Delivery.

In the United States, mail will NOT be delivered on Christmas Eve

For international Mail, truly it is a risk in December.  Deliveries can take 3 - 6 weeks, and tracking is not always visible up to our final destination, as many countries abroad outsource their parcel delivery.

Open Saturdays and Boxing Day in December!

For customers in the Calgary area, I will have the warehouse open.  Check Where to Find Us to see the times to visit us in person.  BeautyGram and products from will be available at the Calgary warehouse for pickup. Cash or Credit Card only (no Debit).  .

Fulfillment and Mail Pickup 

Canada Post is open weeknights in my neighborhood until 9 p.m. and I fulfill all Friday evening and Saturday orders on Sunday.  

USPS: Delivery of packages to the United States Postal Service is every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.  These items are picked up every Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
