same of these?? can bake in foil pan, cut, leave in pan and ship.
Last year we found the flat rate priorty boxes were best way to go. No weight limit, not sure about prices this year, but saw at PO there were same two sizes.
If you make individual cookies, would suggest using the Glad type containers.
And you can use some of the other suggestions in the link to stuff boxes so you don't have to use styro crap. Lip Balm, eye drops, good pens, socks, check the list.
I had two guy's addresses one from here and one from a local friend. There were 15 or so in each group, so just sent two boxes to each guy with enough of each item for each person.
Going through the APO/FPO addreses it only took a week or so to get there.
I actually don't have a name this year, so if you could pm me this person's address, I could get a box or so together.
Bless you and Hugs,
