If you want to give, and have shipped, an iPad mini as a gift, well Apple says you’re out of time. There is still time to order, and even have engraved, lots of other great Apple gifts.
This isn’t just one of the busiest shopping seasons, but it’s also one of the busiest shipping seasons as well. To help you out Apple has a handy page for you to know what the deadlines are (U.S., Canada, UK).
Can’t help you pick the gift, but at least if you plan ahead you won’t wind up on someone’s naughty list.
