Send a hamper for Thanksgiving
There's really never a bad time to receive a food hamper, but at a time when you're expected to cater for more people than normal - like Thanksgiving - they're particularly welcome. This is why they make such great gifts!
Big spreads of cheese, bread, muffins, cakes etc. are ideal, but remember there are restrictions on what you can send in the post. Generally, commercially packaged teas, coffees, candies, condiments and spices are fine; fresh produce like meats, however, are highly restricted as they could go bad during shipping and are classed as a risk to the importing country.
For more specific advice about what can be carried by DHL Parcel UK, see our guides on sending food and drink in the post and sending fluids in the post - and don’t forget our own prohibited items list too.
We also recommend you check the restricted and prohibited items for the United States or Canada before putting your Thanksgiving parcel together.
