Sending your student at college or boarding school care packages and gift baskets is an great way to show you are thinking of them, especially when they are new on campus, feeling homesick, overwhelmed by studies, or have the blues.
When using Free Premium Ground Shipping, order gift baskets and care packages 7 business days in advance to ensure arrival on your student's campus by the desired delivery date and during post office pick up times. Even expedited shipping services require careful planning, especially during hot weather, to ensure students receive gift baskets and care packages timely. Many colleges and boarding schools do not provide package pick up services to students over the weekend. While students can retrieve mail from their campus post office box anytime, they may have to wait until business hours to retrieve packages. Always confirm your student's campus delivery address and receiving hours before ordering a gift basket so as not to incur additional re-delivery charges. Lastly, always encourage your student to pick up packages promptly so items like gift baskets and care packages do not perish.
