How to Ship Holiday Gifts Safely and Soundly
Getting your holiday gifts to your loved ones doesn’t have to be stressful if you follow the right packing tips. By following these tips, you can ensure that your gifts will be safe and sound when they arrive at your recipient’s door. First, choose a box. This is the best way to protect your gift. Depending on the item, you should either wrap it in bubble wrap or use a sturdy box to keep it safe. Corrugated boxes are best, as they are sturdy and are less likely to break. Also, make sure you use plenty of bubble wrap inside and outside the box. This will help to cushion any glass items that are in the box. You can also use Styrofoam peanuts for additional padding.
Next, choose the correct shipping label. Many of the major shipping carriers offer online shipping labels, so you can print them on the spot. It’s best to print the label and include the return address to help the carrier get your gift back to you as quickly as possible. Also, you may want to add an insurance policy so you can be sure your package arrives safely. Neighborhood Parcel will help you get this step right, we use the correct labels in approved formats.
If you’re sending gifts overseas, you may need to pay more to ship them. This is because foreign countries often have their own shipping restrictions. Make sure you find out what the restrictions are before you ship. A number of shipping companies will be able to advise you on these restrictions.
After you’ve chosen the box and shipping label, you need to package the gift. You should use a corrugated box that is large enough to accommodate the gift. If you’re using an old box, you should seal the seams to avoid spilling. You can also fill the spaces in the box with bubble wrap or Styrofoam peanuts. If you’re not a frequent shipper, you may want to consider shipping your gifts through FedEx or UPS. These companies have special shipping deadlines for the holiday season. They also offer free pickups. These companies can also help you ship gifts overseas.
You can also use USPS’ Click-N-Ship feature to purchase postage online. USPS also has a fast-track delivery service, which can get your package to your recipient in one day. However, this service is more expensive than other options. If you want to make sure your package gets to your recipient by Christmas, you can send it through Priority Mail Express. This service costs a bit more, but it guarantees your package will arrive on Christmas Eve.
You can also add a personal note to your package. Some stores offer the option to print a personalized gift receipt or note that your recipient can use to verify your gift’s arrival. You may also want to include a gift certificate with your package. Gift certificates can be enclosed in bubble wrap and included in your card.
The last thing you want is for your gift to arrive late. The US Postal Service offers several affordable ground shipping options for Christmas but we all remember what happened last year, the Post Office was still delivering Christmas Gifts in the Spring of the following year. So head to your Neighborhood Parcel at 1215 Main St, Tewksbury MA 01876 for all your holiday shipping service needs.
