Yes, it really is that time of year. Christmas always manages to sneak up on us and before we've even got halfway through our trick or treat bag of goodies, its time to get cracking on wrapping presents to put under the tree.

With more and more of us having loved ones away travelling, working and living abroad, we have to be on our A-game when it comes to being organised for Christmas.

There is only 1 week left if you want your Christmas cards to get to America on time this year - for more, see below.

Do you still have time to send surprises, pressies, parcels and cards abroad to your loved ones? Here are the Christmas deadlines according to An Post.
