12 Holiday Gift Ideas Under $50 That Travel Well by Mail

Gift giving is always a bit tricky, but it gets even more complex when you’re sending presents via Santa – or Canada Post. Mailing gifts means extra factors to consider: you want to avoid anything that’s fragile (a box of smashed glass isn’t great on Christmas morning), time-sensitive (like edible gifts that’ll expire before they arrive) or super heavy (give your mail carrier’s back a break). Whether you’re sending surprises to far-away family or you want to deliver a little festive fun to a friend’s front doormat, these holiday gift ideas are affordable, thoughtful and travel well by mail.
