Have just been poking about the 'net looking for shipping options, as my parcel to lilbro's family will be rather large and heavy. I am thinking of shipping it fedex. It actually seems like it might be about the same price, or possibly even a bit cheaper, than sending it regular mail, and then it is guaranteed delivery in 4 business days. If I can get my act together and get everything bought, wrapped etc. I could even ship the second week of Dec. and have it get there in time. Just might do that.
