There's nothing worse than the post office during the holidays. If you still haven't learned your lesson from the years past, (and once again procrastinated buying and sending gifts), you can skip the lines this year by shipping via Shyp. The delivery startup offers a start to finish service—from pickup to gift wrapping to delivery—to ensure that your gifts arrive by December 24 (both the last day of Hanukkah and Christmas Eve). And through Monday, December 22, you'll find Shyp operating a drop-off and wrapping station at the Banana Republic in Union Square. The last day for economy shipping to the East Coast just passed, but you can still send cross-country with the premium options. And to add a little more incentive to giving Shyp a try, receive one free gift wrapping with the promo code HOLIDAYGIFT.
