General shipping tips

  • Think about where you are shipping to. Planning on sending something that could melt, or doesn't do well if rained on? A box full of artisan chocolates might not fare too well if it's sitting on your giftee's doorstep for 12 hours in over 100-degree heat.
  • Make the recipient address very clear. When you retrieve your match on redditgifts' website, below the address, there are links to print a couple different options for address labels. Hand written contents are great, but having the postal service wonder if that "S" is a "S" or a "5" might cause delivery issues.
  • Keep a receipt or some form of proof of shipping. Hanging onto the receipt ensures that if there are any issues with delivery, you have proof, and somewhere to start in tracking it down.
