(NAPS)-More then 80 million American women, the Census Bureau says, are somebody's mother. If you're one of those somebodies, you should know that Mother's Day is the second Sunday in May. So now may be a good time to think about what you're getting her and how you're going to get it there.
The "what" depends on more than just age and income. Show you know her likes. For example, a literary lady may want an e-reader or a handmade bookmark. Gardening grandmas go for seed packages as much as a set of garden tools.
As for the "how," heed these hints: Choose cushioning that fills all spaces in the shipping container. Select a container large enough for all the cushioning. Apply at least three strips of packing tape (not duct or masking tape) to the top and bottom of the container in an H shape. Put the shipping label with Mom's full address on the most visible side of the container. Finally, don't hesitate to ask for help. The more than 1,800 FedEx Office Print & Ship Center locations provide a variety of packing and shipping supplies and services.
