Why should your wraped gift be placed in a box for shipping?

Depending on the selected courier service, your parcel may go through several hubs, warehouses and couriers’ vehicles. If you ship them outside of the EU, they will also be subject to customs clearance. When shipping nicely wrapped presents to your dear ones, the last thing you wish for them is that the parcel gets damaged or even lost due to insufficient or improper packaging.

We warmly suggest putting some more effort and wrap your gifts well to prevent any moisture, rain or even snow in the box. Wait to see the smiles on the faces of your family or friends when they open their long awaiting gifts!
