Will couriers such as UPS, FedEx and DHL deliver on Valentine’s Day in 2024?

Valentine’s Day is not observed as a public holiday in any country. Since 14 February 2024 falls on a Wednesday, courier companies such as UPS, FedEx and DHL will perform regular package deliveries on Valentine’s Day this year.

Does mail get delivered on Valentine’s Day?

Unless 14 February falls on a weekend, post offices and regular mail delivery services should operate as normal on Valentine’s Day. If you opt for standard postal services such as Royal Mail or USPS, we recommend sending your Valentine’s gifts a few days in advance to ensure a timely delivery. You can plan to send your mail to arrive by Valentine’s Day based on the estimated delivery time for your shipping route.

What can you ship as a Valentine’s Day gift for him or her?

There are many nice gifts you can ship in your Valentine’s parcel. We believe that the most valuable Valentine’s Day presents for him or her come from the heart, but here are some additional gift ideas:

  • Handmade and personalised Valentine’s Day presents from popular marketplaces like Etsy (yes, we help with that as well);
  • A heart-shaped wreath made of decorative roses;
  • Cuddly teddies are a popular choice when sending Valentine’s gift for her;
  • Send his or hers personalised Valentine’s Day gifts (towels, mugs or pyjamas).

Are there any items restricted from Valentine’s Day shipping?

There is nothing romantic about your parcel being rejected by the courier and your loved one left without a Valentine’s Day gift! Many popular gift items for Valentine’s Day, such as chocolate, flowers and alcohol, are restricted or prohibited and can cause issues if you try to send them through a courier network, especially on international routes involving customs inspections.

Before booking shipping for Valentine’s Day, check the international shipping restrictions to avoid unpleasant surprises. Although many people decide anyway to ship Valentine’s Day goodies that are listed as restricted, they do so at their own risk.

FAQ on international courier delivery services for Valentine’s Day

What is the best way to ship a Valentine’s Day gift parcel?
The best way to ship a Valentine's Day gift is to plan in advance and not leave it to the last minute. This also gives you the option of choosing the cheaper Standard Service for your Valentine parcel if shipping within the EU. Book the service through our order engine and pack the items carefully for shipping in a sturdy cardboard box.
Make sure that someone will be available at the pick-up address to hand over the package to the courier. If you are sending the Valentine's Day gift as a surprise, try to use a delivery address where you know your recipient will be during the day, in order to prevent a failed delivery. This can be their home or work address.
When is the last posting day for Valentine’s Day?
The last posting day for Valentine's Day will depend on the shipping route as well as the delivery service you select. As a general guideline, we recommend shipping your Valentine's Day gifts 5-7 days in advance or selecting the Priority Express Service, regardless of whether you are shipping locally or internationally. The days leading up to Valentine's Day and other holidays are very busy for courier deliveries. Even though they work around the clock to perform as many deliveries as possible, delays can still happen.
When should I send out Valentine’s Day cards?
Our Document Service is ideal for sending Valentine's Day cards in the shortest time possible, and the best thing is that you do not need any stamps. The estimated delivery time for this service is 24h nationwide or within the EU and 48-72h on other global routes. Simply insert your details in the booking tool to get an instant quote for shipping a Valentine's Day card.
I am shipping a Valentine’s Day parcel internationally; will it go through customs?
Yes, if you ship a Valentine's Day parcel internationally, for example, from the UK to the EU or another global destination, the shipment will be liable for customs duty and tax. These fees are charged by the local customs authorities, not by Eurosender or your assigned courier. Some countries will have an import exemption amount on the tax for gifts and personal items below a certain value. You will need to check the regulations for your specific route and prepare the required customs documentation so that your loved one can receive their gifts in the destination country.
Can I ship a gift-wrapped Valentine’s Day parcel internationally via courier?
Yes, you can ship a gift-wrapped Valentine's Day parcel internationally, as long as it is packed inside a cardboard box. This way, the receiver will still enjoy the experience of unwrapping your Valentine's Day present after its safe transport and delivery. Make sure that the outer box itself is not wrapped since the wrapping paper could easily get damaged during transport, and the shipping label could go missing if attached to it.
