Here is the latest guide to Holiday shipping dates.

Holiday Season 2014: Shipping Deadlines

The 2014 holiday season mailing dates for postal customers assigned to the European theater have been set. The dates are: 

(1) Space Available Mail (SAM) - 26 Nov 14
(2) Parcel Airlift (PAL) - 3 Dec 14
(3) First Class/Priority Mail - 10 Dec 14
(4) Priority Mail Express - 17 Dec 14

These dates are for mail originating in Europe and destined to locations in the United States. Mail originating in the U.S. and sent to European APO/FPO/DPO addresses use similar mailing dates. Customers can avoid long lines at the post office when they mail early and can take advantage of using the cheaper, although slower, space available mail service military post offices offer in Europe.

I honestly would stay with the Flat Rate Priority boxes.
