The Various Types of Shipping Boxes

When you’re choosing a birthday gift for your family member, friend, or loved one, a lot of effort and thought can go into the process of getting the gift itself. Where are you going to go to look for a variety of items for them? Do you even have any idea what they may like? Have they asked for something in particular?

It’s all quite a detailed process all to say “Hey, you mean something to me, so I got this for your birthday.” But, that’s how the gift-giving process goes, right?

It’s not always fun, especially if you’re stressed about getting the “perfect” gift for someone who means even more to you. But what about after you’ve already got the gift? What about once you’ve found the perfect thing but don’t have the proper packaging available to wrap it in? And what about actually wrapping it? Oh man.

Well, you’re not alone in dreading the wrapping. It’s just another step in the painstaking gift giving process. You’ve gotta make sure you have wrapping paper, some shipping boxes, and other packaging supplies like tape and scissors just to be ready to do the wrapping.

When you have awkwardly shaped gifts, though, they call for specific shipping boxes to house them in if you’ll be sending it across the country or not delivering it yourself.

Cylindrical gifts.

For any posters, shirts, blankets, mats, or anything else that can be rolled up into a cylinder, you’ll want a cylindrical shipping tube. They’re quite easy to wrap and are super handy for tapestries, posters, and large paper in general.

Small or tiny boxes.

For all the tiny gifts out there, there needs to be a tiny box. The problem is, you don’t want to overestimate how much wrapping paper is needed considering how small the box may actually be. If you can’t find a box small enough for whatever item it is you’re shipping, try using a plastic mailer instead.

Very large items

Sometimes, you’re shipping something awkwardly huge or just awkward enough to warrant a huge box anyway. Most of the time, these are quite a pain to deal with. The good thing is that shipping stores will help you out with boxing and wrapping these. The bad thing? You’ll be paying quite a bit more for shipping something so big. You’ll either have to bite the bullet and send it anyway or hope that there’s a way you can get it to them yourself.
