Shipping Things to Our Kids in Far Flung Places

The stuff they have at the post office and the other carriers for shipping items is expensive and not as sturdy as I would like for shipping some things for the holidays. I was looking for sturdy shipping containers for sale. A few years ago I got a package in a super strong cardboard box. It was the sturdiest piece of cardboard I had ever seen. It was almost like a wooden crate it was so tough. I figured if the company that shipped me that product could get a box like that, then I could find plastic or cardboard boxes that were just as sturdy.

The worst boxes I had ever seen was when we ordered some items in bulk from a foreign supplier. The cardboard practically fell apart when we opened the box. If it was not for all the hard foam inside, the products would never have arrived intact. A sturdy box is not that much more heavy than a standard box where you would have to worry about an increase in shipping costs. I just want the items to get there intact.
