I know it seems impossible to believe, but Christmas day is less than 100 days away at this time. It’s time to have a realistic conversation about holiday shipping deadlines and what it takes to get important presents to your favorite people in plenty of time.
First, let’s be real: you need to start shopping for gifts right away. Or if you’re planning on making gifts to send, it’s time to shift from the planning phase to the making phase. While shipping industry professionals are trying to remain optimistic, the shipping delays due to high package volume and limited workforce are likely to recur. The closer to holiday deadlines we get, the more worrying these delays become. If you’re concerned about gifts getting to your recipients in time, you need to plan on your shipping cut off day being at least a week to ten day in advance of the announced date.
Here are some time-saving tips to make shipping holiday gifts simple. Keep important shipping addresses in your phone. Often the best time to ship a gift is immediately after purchasing it. Your local Boston box and ship service has everything you need to make life simple. You don’t even need to take your purchase home – simply stop by the shop on the way home and have them package and ship it for you!
Working with a box and ship service in Boston is a good way for people with chronic fatigue or other disabilities to ship their gifts to family and friends without becoming overly exhausted in the process. Everything is handled for you, including the right new cardboard shipping cartons, packing materials, labelling, insurance and delivery tracking, and more. It’s also highly convenient for people who have very busy schedules.
