Target Gifting 1TargetThrough December 22 at Target online, enjoy free shipping and returns on thousands of items with no minimum purchase required.

It seems like you've been brainstorming what gifts you're getting for everyone on your list for months. You've curated a Pinterest board of thoughtful products and your laptop is a mess of tabs of the gifts you need to remember to buy, but now Christmas is less than two weeks away and you haven't bought one thing.

If you're a last-minute shopper, you're not alone.

A recent Hilton Honors study discovered that 50% of all shoppers wait until the last month before the holidays to get their gifting done, while an even more surprising 40% wait until the last week.

If you're a member of that 40%, don't lose hope - you can still get all of your holiday shopping done without giving up your procrastinating ways.

Plenty of online retailers are offering free two-day shipping that guarantees you'll have your gifts by Christmas. We went through your favorite sites and found all of the important deadlines you need to know to make sure all of your gifts make it under the tree.

Read on for all of the shipping deadlines from some of your favorite online retailers, so you can get your gifts by Christmas:
