Tips For Posting Your Christmas Presents

Many people have friends, family and loved ones all around the globe and now Christmas is approaching very quickly, it’s time to tick off the shopping list and get those presents in the post on the way to their lucky recipients.

Packaging your gifts can make all the difference when sending them via post and ensure they make it there in one piece at the end. It may be worthwhile bearing in mind that the item needs to be posted when choosing what to buy the person receiving the present. For example, a delicate, ornate glass vase is far less suited to being posted than a book.

Large and bulky items can also be very awkward and costly to post, even if you opt for a courier service. It is best to go for small and sturdy items that have a personal meaning for the recipient. Personalising a present can make a more everyday item that much more special, even more so if they have an unusual name.

However, with the right packaging and wrapping, many items can become suitable for sending in the mail. By choosing the correct packing options, you can be sure that your gift is well protected from any knocks and bumps it might experience when in handling and transit.

There are several different products which are specifically designed to accommodate particular items. For example if you are sending a cult movie poster or artistic print, it may be best to opt for a strong and sturdy poster tube, allowing you to securely send the item without worrying about tears and creases.

If you have a similar item in a smaller size, you may be able to opt for a large envelope with cardboard backing, as this helps the document or poster stay flat and rigid to prevent bending and creasing. These also mean that the item will not have a curved shape after being removed from the packaging as it always stays flat.

By using proper parcel paper and packaging wrap, you can also ensure that your item is protected during transit. As these types of paper are tough and sturdy, they withstand rips and tears much more easily than standard wrapping paper. Your parcel will also have a more traditional feel, especially if you finish the parcel off with string.

Combinations of bubble wrap and foam chips can also keep your item secure if it is a delicate or fragile piece. Many people choose to buy mugs as presents as they are a very useful item and are lovely when filled with sweets. However due to their porcelain and china construction, they can be susceptible to cracks and breakages. With a protective outer layer of bubble wrap and a snug box filled with polystyrene pellets will help to keep the present in perfect condition until is ready for opening.
