– Distance Can’t Stop Love –
Shipping Gifts & Treats for Valentine’s Day
With Valentine’s Day fast approaching, couples throughout the world are scrambling to find the perfect gift for their significant other. Unfortunately, many couples are physically separated by great distances. Some people live in different states, some in different countries, and some are in a relationship with someone serving in the military. The high level of military activity overseas has left tens-of-thousands of couples separated by vast distances and oceans. This Valentine’s Day, don’t let physical distance stop you from giving something special to that special someone. You and your loved one can celebrate Valentine’s Day over any distance by shipping your Valentine’s Day gifts! Nothing says “I Love You” like receiving an unexpected package and opening it to find that someone out there is thinking of you.
No matter the distance, you can always ship across even the greatest stretches of land and ocean. There are a number of shipping carriers, such as FedEx and UPS, as well as the United States Postal Service, that can be used to ship gifts and treats to your loved one. Men and women serving in the military will be especially grateful to unexpectedly receive something special this Valentine’s Day. Although it may seem complicated at first, shipping to a military base or APO/FPO is a simple and hassle-free process. If you are unfamiliar with the process of shipping to an APO/FPO, come in to any Box Brothers today for convenient and reliable military shipping services.
Always keep in mind that shipping certain perishables, such as chocolate, is sometimes a bad idea. Chocolate, especially, can melt depending on the weather conditions throughout transit. An easy-to-prepare gift is to send cookies! You can even put the cookies in a box filled with real popcorn (NON-BUTTER) to prevent moisture from spoiling the cookies.
TIP: Ship your Valentine’s Day gift as soon as possible; don’t wait until the last minute! Weather conditions, international customs laws, and other factors may affect transit times, so act fast.
Other food items requiring special packaging can be placed in styrofoam-insulated box with dry ice, or in a bag with “cold-packs” and then placed in a box. You can purchase cold-packs at any pharmacy and even some markets.
This year, show your significant other how much they mean to you by shipping them a Valentine’s Day present. It is a simple and hassle-free way to show them how much they mean to you this February 14th.
