Affordable Personal Shipping for Christmas

Excess christmas shipping

While none of us can compete with Santa, a parcel of Christmas presents arriving from distant loved ones is a close second for delivering joy. The excitement of receiving a parcel you didn’t personally order never really leaves us – not even after all the online shopping of the last couple of years. The element of mystery is there whether you’re a little child getting presents from granny and grandad or a stressed-out adult getting a surprise treat from a far-away loved one. Finding the right affordable personal shipping service is the key to delivering that magic to your loved ones this holiday season.

Why Use Affordable International Shipping Instead of Buying Online?

Sending a parcel isn’t the only way to get presents to loved ones far away. You could buy a gift online. But some things simply can’t be purchased online. The cardigan you knitted for the new baby, your special Christmas cake or the drawings the children made need to be sent by you. If you’ve decided to support small, local businesses or find the perfect present at a craft fair, that also means you will need to find affordable personal shipping.

If you are sending different gifts to each member of a family living overseas, you can also reduce the parcel’s carbon footprint by consolidating and sending them together in one parcel. That uses less packing material and less fuel. It can also mean less hassle for the recipients.

What Is the Cheapest Way to Ship Small Items?

All that Christmas shopping can get spendy. So one of the questions people have is ‘what is the cheapest way to ship a parcel’. Shipping early helps for larger, heavier parcels because it means you can use sea or land options, but for small items, the savings are less significant. Even in November and December, it’s not too late to ask what is the cheapest way to ship a parcel.

Keeping the weight of the parcel down also helps. That means you might choose clothing or lightweight toys instead of books for the presents. Using light packing materials also keeps its weight down. The size of the parcel also figures into the shipping price. Use the smallest box your gifts can be safely packed into to keep your shipping quote low.
