I'm having a relative send drops to me and i was wondering how much time should be given to send a package so that it gets there when i need it?

packages will be sent from the philadelphia, PA area.

10 days.....

Given the ongoing challenges with the USPS, 10 days would be safe. My wife sent a re-supply package to NOC last May and only allowed 4 days for delivery...it took 5. Most places will hold the package for you, especially if you annotate with an expected arrival date.
