Staying close to friends and family that do not live closely can be a real challenge. Although it is true that social media has made it easy to stay in touch with people all around the world, this is still not quite the same and does not feel genuine. In particular, birthdays and special occasions can be difficult as you are not always able to travel to see them in person, but you will want to show that you are thinking of them.
Show That You Care
A phone call, Skype chat or message on Facebook will certainly be highly appreciated, but one fantastic way to show that you are thinking of them is to send a present (especially if it is their birthday). Despite the fact that people order so much online in today’s day and age, not many people send packages to one another. This could be because they feel it is an unreliable, complex and expensive process, but this is not the case.
Fast, Secure and Affordable Delivery
Courier comparison websites, like Parcel2Go, make it easy to find the most affordable way to send packages of all shapes and sizes. Not only this, but in many cases the courier will pick the package up from your home so you never have to leave the house. This is a secure, fast and affordable way to send a package to anywhere in the UK and even overseas.
Personalising the Package
Receiving an unexpected gift through the post is sure to make the recipient’s day and put a smile on their face – especially if you are able to find something that they really want. In addition to the present, you could also add a handwritten letter, a few photos to show what you have been up to and anything else that they would appreciate in the parcel. These extra touches will make receiving the package that little bit more special and help them to feel connected to you despite the long distance.
A New Tradition
You are sure to get a phone call from the recipient or an email thanking you for the thoughtful gift, but you may even receive a surprise package yourself for a special occasion. Sending presents and thoughtful packages could become a new family tradition and this is much more personal than a quick message on Facebook, which never really feels like you are catching up with somebody.
If you want to reconnect with friends and/or family and do not like the impersonal nature of social media, it is highly worth looking at sending presents via a courier as this will always be well received and help you to feel connected.
