Not that you aren't already abundantly aware, but time is running out fast to shop for any remaining friends or family on your holiday list. There's only one weekend left before the year's biggest gift-giving holidays are officially here, and it's fair to assume you'll be hard-pressed to carve out significant shopping time amidst other end-of-year deadlines and holiday events. That means online shopping is where it's at, and you'll be glad to know there's no shortage of last-minute gifts from Sephora that'll still arrive in time for slipping under the tree. But don't delay, because the clock is ticking.
If you haven't already traded mall shopping for easy online check out for the majority of your holiday shopping, you'll certainly want to at this point — no doubt the scene will be hectic at your local Sephora. And though the deadline has passed for free standard group shipping, all hope is not lost because the beauty retailer has set aside some pretty generous shipping conditions in light of the hectic holiday season.
You've got until Friday, Dec. 20 at 9 AM PT to place an order with standard three day shipping, which is free for any U.S. orders of $50 or more (otherwise it's $5.95), and the last day for two-day FLASH shipping is Saturday, Dec. 21 at 9 AM PT. All members of Sephora's FLASH shipping service will get the two-day shipping for free as usual, while non-members pay $10.95 for the expedited service. Finally, Monday, Dec. 23 at 6 AM PT is the last day for one day rush shipping and it'll cost you $16.95.
One thing to keep in mind: Be careful to avoid gifts with aerosols or other hazardous materials that would require ground shipping — those won't make it in time. But other than that, just about anything from Sephora's gifting suite (and across its site) is fair game so you've got plenty to choose from to delight beauty lovers of every kind.
