Put Your Loved Ones “First” On Valentine’s Day

February 6, 2013

I hate to admit this, but I am a procrastinator. This fact becomes increasingly more apparent around holidays when I need to buy and send presents, no more so than Valentine’s Day last year. My mother, who lives two time zones away, had been going through a rough time. I wanted her to know someone loved her on this romantic holiday. Of course time slipped away from me, and all of a sudden it was February 13th!

After work, I went shopping and found the perfect shirt to send to her. I knew she had to leave for work around 8:30 in the morning, and I wanted to make sure she received her present before leaving so she could wear it that day. Thankfully, FedEx offers early morning delivery with FedEx First Overnight service, by 8 or 8:30 am to many places! I shipped the shirt, and Mom received it before she left her house.

She immediately called me, and I could hear the smile on her face. She told me the shirt fit her perfectly, and she already had it on with jewelry and shoes to match. Later that evening, we spoke again, and she told me she received numerous compliments on how pretty she looked. It made my day to hear how happy she was on a holiday that could have been sad for her. Plus she got to brag about her awesome daughter!

FedEx ships millions of packages every year for Valentine’s Day. From flowers to candy to jewelry to baskets and everything in between, there is a service to meet your needs.

So if you wait to the last minute like me, or just want to make an impression first thing in the morning, try shipping

FedEx First Overnight, available online and at any FedEx shipping location. If you are more of a planner, FedEx also offers FedEx Home Delivery with a FedEx Date Certain Home Delivery option. Select February 14th, and your loved one is guaranteed to receive their package on Valentine’s Day!

    FedEx has been wonderful for me to ship all of my eBay shipments to all of my customers and to read this that they are also making Valentines day packages to be delivered on time makes me even more pleased. Thank you Rebecca for sharing this post!
