Father’s Day is approaching quickly. If you need to send your gift to your father, this blog has gift ideas as well as information about your shipping options. While we do list gift cards in some of these ideas, Father’s Day may be the one time that you should pick out a special gift that your Father can keep and cherish.
This year we are adding items that you probably would like to skip buying for Father’s Day. We recommend staying away from items that would indicate that you expect more work from your father.
Tools are always nice, but we have compiled at list of common and not so common gifts for Father’s Day.

Unless your father is a gardener, try and stay away from gardening tools. Unless your father likes to cook and is a gourmet cook, keep away from new pots and pans, aprons, serving utensils, a new food processor, and a new grill. Unless your father loves to do laundry, now is probably not then best time to surprise him with a new washer or a new dryer.
You should probably stay away from cleaning supplies. Plan on skipping a new vacuum cleaner, new duster, or a new floor cleaner. A maid may be a nice treat, if you pair the gift card with sports. Other items to stay away from are books and DVD’s about dieting or the gym or hair implants. For that matter, this is not the day to present dad with any sort of exercise equipment, unless he has specifically asked for it.
We recommend taking your father to the following places on Father’s Day: The picture show, the boat show, or the car show.
While pack n send may not have listed every Father’s Day gift that can be shipped, made or given, we have tried to help out the “Gee I cannot think of a gift” customer.
Here at pack n send, we are recommending that you ship early this year. Due to weather conditions, we suggest that if you live out of town, that you send your gift early. First and foremost, this will save you on overnight shipping charges. Secondly, it will make you look like you did not wait until the last minute to think about your father this Fathers’ Day.
For children that need to ship internationally, remember that packages are charged based on length, width, height, weight and value of the item that you are shipping. If you are shipping a large item –think international freight shipping Houston Texas, or international freight from any city in the United States, you will need to look at your options. For antique shipping, you may need a custom built crate, or you may want to consider a blanket wrap move. If you are considering international freight shipping, as a shipper in Houston Texas we recommend shipping by ocean by the cubic meter if possible.
Shipping large items via air can be costly when shipping outside of the United States. Ocean shipping is an option, but is not as speedy as air shipping. Either way that you ship, you will need to consider the amount of time that it will take an item to clear through customs. You also need to look at any weather delays. For ocean shipping, ships can be delayed leaving the United States due, to weather or while the ship is waiting to fill up with more cargo. If you are looking for freight companies in Houston please call pack n send and we will help answer your shipping questions
We wish all of our customers who are fathers, A Happy Father’s Day!
