Christmas is a time of joy, family and spiritual consolation for many. A time most around Europe look forward to with excitement. As do we here at Eurosender. And not only because we get to celebrate together as friends and coworkers, but also because we handle thousands of you parcels that need to find their way under Christmas trees all around Europe. We do our part in helping Santa Clause do his work.
If you’re wondering what to buy as a gift this year, or maybe are interested in what people actually buy for one another, we have prepared a short compilation of Top 5 items shipped during Christmas time. Some of them are presents you would expect, some are really surprising.
So without further ado, let’s jump straight to number 1:
This shouldn’t be a surprise. A nicely wrapped set of deodorant and an aftershave is a timeless classic (and a basic necessity) for both men and women. It doesn’t hurt that it is also an easy item to ship and, since the package is not too large, quite inexpensive at the same time. If you yourself are planning to send someone cosmetics as a gift, and have any questions about how to send them, visit our dedicated page, where you will find all the relevant information:
2. Perfumes & Fragrances
You’d think that this is the same category as the previous one, but there is a significant difference. Mostly in price perfumes & fragrances are usually designer, expensive presents and the bottle or flask is equally as important as the contents themselves. The way you pack them, securely and properly, plays a huge role in whether they arrive untouched, unharmed and on time.
3. Gift baskets
The office gift giving is not something to be trifled with. The traditional gift basket – with everything from stationery to alcohol – is still a widely accepted and much appreciated present. Since there are a hundred different ways of arranging and supplying a gift basket, please take a look at our different packing advice pages in order to get the gist of how to pack different items so they arrive safe and in mint condition.
4. Car apparel products
The perfect present for your dad. Or anyone who likes to keep their car clean and shiny. Everything from wipes to wax, to floor mats, fits in this category. You wouldn’t think that they would be difficult to pack, but in any case, we have prepared a separate page for you to get some matter of fact info. Just to be on the safe side.
And women’s clothes and apparel specifically. Again a time-honored tradition to gift sweaters, socks, and stockings for Christmas. But don’t forget that New Year’s is around the corner and we have a plethora of gowns and evening dresses shipped through our services. Sound difficult to pack? No worries, we got you covered.
And there you have it. Top 5 Christmas items. Have another idea for a gift? Have no fear, we’ll send everything and anything (well almost anything). Give us a call or send us an email if you have any shipping questions.
