DALLAS, Nov. 15, 2012—Calling all holiday planning perfectionists and gift giving overachievers, FedEx Office has the solutions to help keep you calm and collected during the busiest time of year. Did you know that more than eight out of ten Americans anticipate stress during the holiday season? Break away from the statistic by following these stress-busting tips to keep your home humming like a well-oiled machine throughout November and December.
Santa Can’t Do the Holidays Alone, Neither Should You
After braving the malls and navigating online sales, take a step back and let FedEx Office handle the rest. With packing and shipping services starting at just $4.99, FedEx Office can put all the finishing touches on your gifts and make sure they arrive at their destination in one piece. FedEx Office team members are experts when it comes to packing fragile or oddly shaped items—in fact, compared to competitors FedEx Office has the widest range of specialty packages.
Our expert team members truly do think “outside the box”—they specialize in customizing boxes on-site. Sending golf clubs to your brother this year? We have the box for the whole golf bag. FedEx Office also helps safeguard electronics, offering boxes specially designed to protect laptops, smartphones and MP3 players along with other electronics that make great presents during the holidays.
Don’t Wait Until “The Night Before Christmas”
Cut the stress by starting early this year. If you can, take advantage of Black Friday and Cyber Monday so you don’t find yourself making compromises on Christmas Eve. With many locations offering extended hours and more than 200 that are open 24 hours, FedEx Office is open on your schedule and we’ve got you covered. If holiday parties and decorating hold you back, FedEx Office welcomes procrastinators with two shipping deadlines: December 17 for FedEx Ground and December 22 for FedEx Express delivery before Christmas Day.
Santa’s Workshop Isn’t the Only Place to Find the Perfect Gift
Agonizing over the perfect gift for a friend or co-worker can make holiday shopping a taxing experience. Remember, it’s the thought that counts, not the price tag or the amount of time spent looking for a gift. For a personal touch, FedEx Office is offering customizable cards and calendars for 30 percent off November 8 to 18. Tired of fighting the crowds? FedEx Office is also offering a special Cyber Monday deal of 50 percent off cards and calendars online. This way you can take advantage of the discount from the comfort of your own home between November 23 and 27.
Stay Up Late Waiting for Santa, Not Worrying About the Details
Once your planning is done, relax and enjoy the holidays! Don’t forget, this season is all about friends, family and good food. After you ship your gifts, rest assured FedEx Office will make sure they get to the intended recipient. FedEx Office Hold at Location service keeps gifts off the porch and out of harm’s way by allowing recipients to pick their gifts up from a FedEx Office location. That way you can rest easy knowing your loved ones received those presents you worked so hard to find.
So, sit back, relax and take a break from the holiday stress. FedEx Office is here to keep holidays merry and bright.
