Keeping in Touch Over Long Distances
Mailing gifts to long-distance friends and relatives is a great way to let them know you are thinking of them. Unfortunately, with the rising cost of postage, packing a bunch of stuff into a box and mailing it at the Post Office can be time consuming and expensive. If you are unable to personally put together a care package, you may want to look into services that will deliver a gift with your well-wishes directly to its intended recipient.
One of the most popular gift ideas is gourmet cookie basket delivery. Many companies allow you to order cookie gift baskets in a variety of themes and flavors. The company bakery will make the designated cookies, arrange them beautifully, and send them out directly to your friend’s door. If you don’t have time to discuss the flavors and decorations over the phone, fear not! You can send cookies online from a variety of companies. To order cookies online for delivery, you will need your recipient’s address, your credit card information, and a computer or phone with internet access. The basket options will all be right there on the website, so if you don’t know what type of cookies you want, there will be plenty of suggestions.
If you don’t want to send cookies online, there are many other options. Baskets and bouquets of flowers can be sent all over the world, and are sure to brighten anyone’s day. Great for Mother’s Day, Valentine’s Day, or simply as a nice gift for people in long-distance relationships, flowers bring joy everywhere they go. Lilies, roses, and spring flowers like daffodils and lilacs are all popular options.
Of course, both flowers and cookies are temporary. If you really want to order something more permanent for a friend, try finding out if their favorite store has an online shop! Even if you can’t afford shipping on that perfect item, you will probably be able to buy an online gift certificate. Online gift certificates save on paper and fuel, and allow the recipient to purchase exactly what they want at the time of receipt.
Whether you choose to ship gourmet cookie baskets, dramatic floral arrangements, or nothing physical at all, you will be sure to find the perfect gift for everyone on your list.
