Do you have packages to ship this holiday season? Of course you do! Tis the season to be shipping, right?! I have a special holiday tip to make your brown cardboard package stand out in the crowd.
Delivering Holiday Happiness
We have extended family in Alaska whom we haven’t seen in a few years, but K still talks about their daughter (who is the same age) as if they saw each other last month. As soon as I learned aboutThe UPS Store’s Delivering Holiday Happiness App, I knew we had to use it on their Christmas package.
After packing up the gifts, I visited my local The UPS Store to ship the package. While I was there, I asked about including the Delivering Holiday Happiness App to my package.
The Delivering Holiday Happiness App is easy to use and free for anyone shipping a package with The UPS Store. A sticker was attached to the outside of my box with instructions to the recipient to enter a special code to view the video message online. Back at home, I could use the same code to record my holiday greeting or rather my kids could record their greeting.
Our package will arrive in Alaska next week, and I can’t wait to hear how the kids liked the special video message from my girls.
If you are shipping holiday gifts, the Delivering Holiday Happiness App is an easy and fun addition to your package. Be sure to ask for it at the The UPS Store.
