The Best Gifts for Sending Long Distance

Sending a gift to your loved ones via mail can be tricky. After all, you want your gift to arrive in plenty of time and perfect condition. And to get this done, you need to trust the company and the mail carrier to deliver your gift on time and in good condition.

The Best Gifts for Sending Long Distance

These days, it has never been easier to get a gift sent directly to the recipient, and thanks to next-day delivery options, you can even get those last-minute gifts delivered without having to rely on that sad-looking bunch of flowers and beaten box of chocolates from the gas station.

With this in mind, what are the best gifts you can send by mail for any reason? There are no limitations these days on what you can send, and many companies offer next-day delivery and gift wrap options along with a note so when it is delivered, they know exactly who sent it.


Show someone just how much you care with a beautiful piece of jewelry that you kicked, especially for them. The beauty of jewelry especially stud earrings are small enough to be delivered easily even if no one is home, meaning you can ship directly to them. Aurate sells ethically sourced jewelry made from 14k gold, 18k gold, and vermeil. Their fine jewelry is designed to be worthy of the women who wear it. Fine jewelry deserves fair prices. And so do you. All of their jewelry is born, raised, and handmade in NYC. No import taxes, no unnecessary middlemen, no insane markups. And they produce pieces on a made-to-order basis so that you don’t pay for extra inventory costs because they love gold, but not price tags. Plus, you can feel good about making a purchase from Aurate. Aurate believes in paying it forward. Which is why they give a portion of every purchase to support developing literacy of students in the US.

Many jewelry companies allow for shipping anywhere globally, so it doesn't even matter if you are in the same country or not; you can have it sent directly to them. A good tip would be to buy shipping insurance to ensure your purchase is covered should it get lost or damaged in the mail especially if it is expensive or you have had it personalized or engraved specifically.


put that tired bunch of flowers back down and head online. When it comes to finding a local florist, you can find one who can take your order online or over the phone, and you can peruse the options available to meet your needs. Be it a birthday, anniversary, the birth of a child, or simply because it is a Tuesday. Sending flowers will not be a great gift idea, and with a few taps of the keyboard, you can find your perfect arrangement of blooms to brighten up anyone's day.

Subscription Boxes

A subscription box is a package generated by a company using products they deem suitable for this service and deliver on a predetermined schedule. For example, many different beauty boxes vary in cost, delivered in the week of the month every month. They will contain a selection of beauty products, including skincare, makeup, accessories or applicators, etc., worth at least how much you pay per box and include full-size products and sample-sized offerings.

But there is a vast array of different subscription boxes on the market these days, not just beauty boxes. The best part is you can pay for these boxes each month or upfront; for example, you can buy a 12-month upfront subscription (which is typically cheaper) and have the boxes sent to the recipient every month.

Choose from;
- Beauty
- Gin
- Cheese
- Ale
- Wine
- Knitting
- Pop in a Box
- Relaxation
- Yoga
- Meditation
- Pet boxes and much more.


Prefer to give all over one an experience over a product? You're not alone, and this is one of the best ways to surprise someone. With many of these transactions taking place online, your tickets will be sent digitally, meaning all you need is an email to forward the confirmation and tickets to, and you have an instant gift that can be delivered anytime, anywhere.

The trick to this one is to make sure you enter the details of the person you are gifting tickets to so they can access them and allow for smoother entry on the day. Especially if you aren't going to be with them. Use your details for the payment but remember to add their name to any forms or registration to take control of their end when they receive them. All you need to do then is to look out for the photos showing them enjoying your gift!


Does the person you are buying for enjoy visiting certain places or want to join a specific club? In this day and age where finances are stretched for many households, buying a membership plan for someone to visit frequently without having to pay for it can be a lifesaver.

Think zoos, theme parks, book clubs, or even Amazon Prime or Netflix. Gift by way of a gift card that covers the full amount for a given time frame or buy directly using their details, so all they need to do is log in.

Letterbox Gifts

Much like how subscription boxes are designed to fit through your letterbox for easier delivery, letterbox gifts work in the same way. The best part is you don't have to be tied into a long contract with letterbox gifts, and you can buy them as one of order.

There is a letterbox gift for pretty much everyone if you know where to look. Choose from pampering boxes, cupcakes, birthday cake, treat boxes, bath bombs, and even succulents small enough to be posted. As you would expect, the dimensions are pretty slim to allow for them to fit in your letterbox, meaning that the products included are chosen partly for their ability to fit into small and flatter boxes.

Sending Gifts

There is no denying that advancements and changes in how we shop have massively benefited the consumer. However, when choosing to send a gift directly via online order, remember to leave enough time for the item to be delivered and check any boxes to allow you to have the invoice sent separately, as well as hiding this from who you are sending the gift to.

While speedy delivery options make it easier than ever to buy last minute, try to avoid opting for next-day delivery in case no one is home or the company fails to fulfill their promise and have it delivered when you need to be.

So what are you waiting for? Send that awesome gift today!
