Tips for Sending Your Christmas Cookie Tins
- About.com reminds people to not mail very perishable foods. Christmas cookies like gingerbread man cookies or chocolate chip cookies are fine, because they keep for awhile unlike food such as meats or soft cheeses. And send food items through the mail via the fastest shipping method possible.
- Wrap your Christmas cookie favorites tightly and make sure you choose tins that won't bust open. If you have to, tape the tin shut and put into a box with packing materials and wrap the cookie tin in bubble wrap.
- Put the heavy items you're sending on the bottom of the box and then stack the lighter items over the bigger items. This helps you avoid crushing the lighter items in transport.
