Sending Love Across Borders: Grandparents Day Care Packages
September 10th marks a special day to honor the love, wisdom, and joy that our grandparents bring into our lives. While distance might separate us physically, our hearts can always bridge the gap. Why not celebrate National Grandparents Day by sending a heartwarming care package to your beloved grandparents overseas? And the best part? You can do it easily and affordably with the help of PackageHopper!
Choose Thoughtful Contents
Begin by selecting items that will bring a smile to your grandparents' faces. Think about their preferences, hobbies, and needs. Consider including a mix of personal touches, such as:
- Handwritten letters: Share your feelings and memories to make them feel closer.
- Photos: Remind them of cherished moments you've shared.
- Snacks: Include their favorite treats or snacks from your local area.
- Books or magazines: Find reading materials they'll enjoy.
- Comfort items: Think cozy socks, blankets, or scented candles.
Be sure to review our Restricted & Prohibited List to ensure we can send your items overseas!
Pack with Care
Proper packaging ensures that your items arrive safely and in the best condition. Here's how to pack effectively:
- Use a sturdy box: Choose a box that's appropriate for the contents and size of your care package.
- Bubble wrap and padding: Protect fragile items by wrapping them in bubble wrap or cushioning materials.
- Secure items: Prevent shifting by using newspaper, tissue paper, or bubble wrap to fill empty spaces.
- Seal well: Use strong packaging tape to seal the box securely.
Please note, do not gift wrap your items, as our PackageHopper team will need to review the contents of each package to prepare them for international shipping.
Weigh and Measure Your Package
Before submitting your shipment with PackageHopper, you'll need your package's accurate weight and dimensions. Use a kitchen scale for weight and a tape measure for dimensions. Ensure the measurements are in inches and pounds for accurate quotes.

Select Your Shipping Option & Provide Required Information
Once you've chosen the shipping option that works for you, fill in the required information, including sender and recipient details, package dimensions, and weight. We'll need accurate information to ensure your items and exportation documentation is correct.

PackageHopper will provide shipping labels and any necessary documentation directly to you. Print these out and affix the labels securely to your package. Keep a copy of the documentation for your records.
