    Hello Moms! I'm wondering what would be the best way to have my souviners shipped home? Should I have each item shipped from the store I"m purchasing from or should I have them sent to the resort and shipped all at once before leaving? Thanks!


    Great question! So here is my take on it based on past experience. I prefer ship things from the stores as I buy them, for several reasons.

    Convenience, first of all. I am on vacation. I don't want to have to go find a box big enough to ship everything in, then find the shipping office, then fill out the labels, blah, blah, blah! I buy it, I let the stores ship it, and my vacation continues uninterrupted!

    Cost, second. Yes, it will cost more in shipping, probably, to ship each item individually, than to get everything together into one box. But I have found that it is not usually a lot more, and since I usually find I have to buy a box from the shipping center, then pay for them to ship it with an added charge, that it comes pretty close either way.

    Fun, third. I love having a stream of packages that are delivered after a vacation! Each is a new surprise that is individually cherished as it arrives!

    I hope this helps?

    Have a Magical Vacation!
