From Ugly Christmas Sweaters to Bomb Snickerdoodles – UPS has you Covered

December 7th, 2021

They say it’s the most wonderful time of the year – Stamps.com and UPS are here to make that winter holiday dream happen.

We’ve all been there! You found the best ugly Christmas sweater that has about 1,000 little bells. Or you absolutely have to ship your famous gingerbread cookies to your college roommate. The holidays are a time to reflect, give, and share. We’re here to make that a reality.

So what advice can Stamps.com and UPS give you during this holiday season to make sure your obnoxiously knitted reindeer pullover or those cookies that can’t possible contain that much butter get to your friends and loved ones?

Here’s some tips and tricks for all those with the holiday spirit:

Cookies

Whether it’s cookies to grandma or expanding your already amazing bakery, Stamps.com and UPS are here to support all your baked good dreams.

The Best Way to Ship Cookies Is Fast

As with any perishable, speed is of the essence when it comes to shipping cookies. With up to 65% off consider using UPS Next Day Air® so you can get your cookies delivered as fast and as fresh as possible.

Share the Cookie Love

If you’re still unsure about how to ship cookies, here’s a quick recap:

  1. Select cookies that will travel well. Shipping cookies that are easily breakable or heavy on filling might not be the best idea.
  2. Do not ship cookies warm. Give your cookies time to cool to room temperature before packing them.
  3. Wrap each cookie in plastic. For extra security, double wrap cookies in pairs.
  4. Remember to use plenty of cushioning material beneath and around the cookies to keep them secure in your container.
  5. Select an express shipping option to get your cookies delivered right on time.

Christmas Sweaters

Honestly, we’re here for it! Give us your hideous sequined Santa or your worst interpretation of what a reindeer can be. Ship us all the bells, the glitter, and pom-poms. Our tricks for your festive gear:

  • Fold the sweater, laying it flat and smooth on a clean, dry surface. Place the sweater front side down and fold the sides into the middle. Then fold the length of the sweater in three, so the front of the sweater sits on top.
  • For new sweater, slip into a plastic bag and slide the package into a poly mailer, a secure and lightweight choice of packaging for small items of clothing.
  • If you’re sending multiple sweaters, it is advised to use a box. Ensure the box is not much larger than the sweaters, to avoid sliding in transit. Stack the sweaters neatly on top of one another.
  • If the sweaters are new, consider placing each one in an individual plastic bag. Cushion around the sweater with bubble wrap to steady them inside the box.
  • If there are special accessories on the sweater (bells, pom-poms, etc.), considering cushioning them individually.
