Thinking of doing something special for your loved one this Valentine’s Day? Make it a special delivery—by sending them a love package filled with their favorite gifts and goodies. Whether your special someone lives near or far, they’re sure to appreciate a thoughtful surprise delivered right to their door. And the good news is, it’s easier to put together than you think.
The fun begins when you start picking out items to put inside the love package. Take a look at these fun themes to help you get started.
- For the sports fan – towels, blankets, t-shirts or even iron-on pillowcases adorned with their favorite college or professional sports team logo, or favorite player’s number
- For the gadget geek – find the must-have technology (and required batteries) they’ve been pining for, all wrapped up and ready to go
- For the movie buff – gift certificates to their local movie theatre or a collection of DVDs, popcorn included
Make sure your items are cushioned for the trip to your Valentine’s address. The United States Postal Service (USPS) recommends tucking an extra address label with the delivery and return addresses inside, should the box or outside label become damaged.
Next, seal the box and if it’s heavy, make sure you reinforce all seams using clear or brown packaging tape, reinforced packing tape or paper tape—not cord, string, twine, masking or cellophane tape, advises the USPS.
Love comes in all shapes and sizes. So whether you’re reusing a padded envelope, box or even a mailing tube, you can make sure old markings or labels don’t show through by addressing your love package with an Avery Shipping Label with TrueBlock™ Technology. It’s the only label that completely covers everything underneath and looks good doing it.
Keep in mind most shipments shipped within the continental United States can take between two to nine days when using USPS. View shipping schedule.
So this Valentine’s Day, do the unexpected! A love package that arrives by mail is a delightful surprise that’s sure to warm anyone’s heart.
