The Christmas season is a time of joy, celebration, and spending time with loved ones. We can easily be overwhelmed by all the traditions during this period of the year, but we somehow manage to make our families and friends happy and make sure they feel appreciated.
Many people exchange gifts as a way to show their appreciation for one another. When it comes to choosing the right gift, think about the recipient’s interests and preferences. A thoughtful and personalized gift will be much more appreciated than something generic or impersonal.
If you are planning on sending gifts to friends or family members, there are a few things you should pay attention to in order to make the process easier and more enjoyable and assure that your gifts arrive on time.
One important thing to consider is the timing of your gift-giving. If you are sending gifts through the mail, make sure to allow enough time for them to reach their destination before Christmas Day, and also remember that the Postal Service, FedEx, and UPS will be closed for Christmas Day and the next day, on Monday. It’s also a good idea to communicate with the recipient to make sure the gift you send has been received.
You should also keep in mind to avoid sending cash over the mail because it is impossible to get the money back if it is lost or stolen. The United States Postal Service warned recently that incidents of mail fraud and theft have been on the rise all year, but that these incidents often reach their peak around the holidays.
Third, and one of the most important factors to make sure your gifts arrive on time, is following the tips of the United States Postal Service: Make sure to use new labels on any package, try to use a new box, and make sure you double- or even triple-check the address.
