Easter is one of the most popular times of the year to send chocolate gifts.

It’s an early one this year, taking place on 31st March, so it may have come around sooner than you eggs-pected. But there’s still plenty of time to send a sweet choccy treat to a customer, a family member, or a friend.

So let’s get cracking

When selecting the ideal Easter gift, there’s a lot of choice. However, it's crucial to remember that certain products may be subject to courier shipping restrictions.

Non-perishable chocolate can typically be sent via courier service unless the carrier has restrictions on food items. However, you’ll first need to check the customs regulations for your destination country.

For instance, Kinder eggs are prohibited in the USA due to regulations against toys embedded in confectionery. Additionally, sending any food to the USA requires prior notice from the FDA. You can download a PDF guide (right-click, Save As) on registering with the FDA.

‘Egg-squisite’ packaging

When sending delicate Easter eggs or chocolate gifts, ensuring they arrive intact is important. Start by opting for a sturdy cardboard box to shield them from harm, and include a sufficient amount of inner cushioning such as Styrofoam coolers to maintain their shape and prevent melting.

Surround them with packaging materials to minimise movement during transit, ensuring the delicate contents are well-protected.

For international shipments, be mindful that customs might need to inspect the package, so choose packaging that can be easily opened and resealed if necessary. By taking these precautions, you can increase the likelihood of your chocolate gifts arriving in perfect condition.
