It's officially holiday shopping crunch time. There are only five days left to get packages underneath the tree by Christmas, but thankfully there's also two-day shipping, and that math works out in every procrastinator's favor. Target is enabling late-stage shopping habits with free two-day shipping for select items guaranteed to arrive by December 24. All you need to do is look for presents with the cute Target truck and Christmas tree icon and order them online by 11:55 P.M. CST Thursday, December 20 (that's 12:55 A.M. EST Friday, December 21).
To help narrow down the options, we've combed through the fitness items that qualify to highlight the best deals, cutest gifts, and actually useful presentsâ€”all of which are guaranteed to arrive on your doorstep by Christmas Eve. To all the procrastinators out there, we wish you speedy shopping and happy holidays!
