Business Ideas I'd like to see: Order in Advance

Say, for the sake of example that it's my brother's birthday in March. And that I've found him the perfect gift on Amazon, which I intend to have delivered directly to him*.

There's no way that I can say "Post this on the 28th of February".

And that seems like a _really_ obvious business idea. Not just because it's useful to me as a customer, but because it would allow Amazon to manage their inventory better. If I could order Christmas presents to be sent in time for Christmas, then Amazon could work out what their Christmas volumes were likely to be, and ensure that they had packing and delivery capacity lined up in order to ensure that gifts got there in time.

So, anyone got an email address for Jeff Bezos?

*Because sending it to me so that I can wrap it and post on to him would be ridiculous.
