Santa isn’t the only one who offers fast and reliable parcel delivery this Christmas! If you have family that have moved to New Zealand, loved ones living in Europe or even a cousin in Melbourne that you won’t see over the festive period; Interparcel can help you get those wonderfully personal gifts to them safely.

It's becoming more common to send a virtual gift card by email – but where’s the personal touch or joy in that? I'm sure we can all agree that it’s definitely more enjoyable to open a brightly wrapped present than to simply click on an email. The great news is that it's easier and cheaper than you think to deliver that personal touch to your loved ones.

Lots of parcels

Plan ahead

At this time of year, you want to be sure your parcel will arrive by the 24th December so it can be nestled under the tree in time for Christmas day.

We’ve put together a list of our last posting dates to ensure delivery in time for the big day. Make sure you check this list prior to sending your gifts to avoid disappointment. It’s a very busy time of year so delays can happen, if you get ahead of the curve and send your gifts a few days early then there’s more time for you to enjoy the hot weather and a cold bevvy.

You should also check that your item is permitted to be sent as some gift items may be classed as Prohibited or Restricted

If you're still struggling to pick a service then maybe our blog post on choosing the best service might help.

Safe packaging

No matter how careful our couriers are, sometimes a trickily placed pot hole can make your box take a little tumble in the van. Make sure you use good quality, double walled cardboard boxes to protect your precious gifts and stuff some internal packaging materials in there to add cushioning.

It’s worth sourcing the perfect box for your items, don’t use something that’s too big as not only will your item will be rolling around inside but you’ll also pay more than you need to for the shipping charge. If the box is too small then there will be no room for internal packaging which may mess up that beautiful Christmas wrapping you worked so hard on.
