- Pick sweets that don't melt easily and whose packaging does not easily get smashed. The conditions that the package may encounter on its long trek across the ocean and through the air may be extreme at some point, depending on the shipping service that you use. Prepare for a worst case scenario by choosing sturdy sweets.
- Carefully package your sweets. Add festive, colored tissue paper that's the recipient's favorite color alongside the bubble wrap that you should place around the package of sweets. That will make sure that they receive a visual treat upon opening the package as well. You also want to include a personalized note with your sweets. When sending a small gift all the way to England, you want to express your sentiments as beautifully as the action of mailing the package does.
- Do some comparison shopping. Thanks to the Internet, you can easily find all the shipping companies that mail packages to England. You may opt for the United States Postal Service, UPS, FedEx or another shipping company. Factors to compare include price and the time it will take for shipping. Depending on your personal needs, you may opt for the service that's least expensive or that can get the package there in time for a holiday or special occasion.
- Mail your package of sweets to England early in the morning, if you want to make sure that it gets out in the earliest shipment. Although the time of day may not matter for all carriers, it's generally a very good idea, especially when shipping things that are on a specific time limit.
- Track your package of sweets going to England online. Almost every shipping service allows you to easily track the package, and you'll feel happy when you know that your loved ones have the sweets in their hands and mouths, before they even have a chance to send you a thank you letter or email.
