Shipping Christmas items with Eurosender

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:

1. Cosmetics

shipping Christmas presents

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
