Get your gift delivered on Time with Last Minute Gift Delivery.
Thankfully, there’s no need to worry, especially in the technologically advanced society like ours – you can go online, place an order for a gift, get it wrapped, and have it delivered the next day or in some cases the same day!
That’s good to know for procrastinators like me…
Tips for Last Minute Gift Delivery:
Shop locally at a traditional brick & mortar store. Just pick out your gift and deliver it yourself. Or you can take the item to the post office and use their express or priority shipping. There’s also FedEx or UPS. (Get delivery confirmation!)
BTW – one thing to remember!!! Make sure you investigate all charges & fees associated with last minute gift delivery – not all, but some charge extra to meet a specific delivery date.
Shop Online: If you’re shopping online prior to a Holiday or need the gift delivered before a certain date take note of the last day you can order and still get the gift delivered on time. Some online stores have a guaranteed delivery date – Amazon is one of them.
Always read their policies concerning shipping and delivery dates. If you have any questions don’t hesitate to call customer service.
Many stores accommodate holiday gift giving by offering Saturday and/or Sunday delivery (another good reason to read their shipping polices).
Another Hot Tip – check to see if they will GUARANTEE delivery. I once ordered a camera online with next day delivery. It never came. I waited 3-days and still it didn’t get delivered. I called the company’s customer service line and they gladly sent me my camera the next day FREE of charge.
Store-to-Store shipping: Wal-Mart is an example of this. You can place an order at any Wal-Mart and have someone pick it up for you at another Wal-Mart. It’s not the best choice, but it is an alternative.
Final Hot Tip – an excellent choice for Last Minute Gift Delivery is flowers. Shop online for Flowers and you can usually have them delivered the same or next day. Plus, in most cases you can’t go wrong with flowers!
Getting your gift to its recipient doesn’t have to be a headache…don’t wait till the last minute, but if you do – make sure you read the fine print pertaining to delivery dates, times, and costs.
