Are you still struggling to finish, or begin, for that matter, your Christmas shopping? Do you hate the crowds at the mall and stores, and the stop-and-go traffic just to get there?

Do not fret. It's still possible to shop online and have your gifts before Christmas. Now, if you intended to mail the gifts, that's another story, but you still should be able to get what you want delivered to your house before the big day.

I researched where I could still shop and have gifts before Christmas, and I found the Real Simple website had some good answers.

As an example, for the truly last-minute shopper, 1-800-Flowers is a solid bet.

Thank you, Amazon Prime. Members receive free two-day shipping year-round, including right before the holidays.

Apple is offering free two-day shipping on all of their products.

If you don't have time to take a trip to your local Bed Bath & Beyond, there's still time to order your gifts online.

If you plan on spending more than $35 at Best Buy, you could qualify for free two-day shipping.

There are so many other ideas. Be sure to check out the Real Simple website and get going.

Happy shopping!
