How to Pack & Mail Bread

Save

If you have ever bitten into a slice of homemade bread, you know that the soft, chewy texture is unparalleled. Store-bought bread rarely compares. You can share the experience of eating homemade bread and show your friends and loved ones that you care by sending them a loaf. Although mailing bread may sound complicated, with the proper planning and packing, you can be sure that your bread will arrive soft and fresh.

Things You'll Need

  • Flat-rate shipping box
  • Paper grocery bag
  • Tape
  • Plastic trash bag
  • Crumpled newspaper
  • Open a paper grocery bag and place the bread inside of it.

  • Tape the opening of the bag shut with a piece of tape.

  • Place the paper-wrapped loaf into a plastic garbage bag. Tie the garbage bag.

  • Place the wrapped loaf in the box. Use crumbled newspaper to fill any extra gaps to ensure that the bread does not move around during shipping.

  • Seal the box and prepare it for shipping in accordance with post office regulations.

Tips & Warnings

  • Allow your bread to cool completely before packing it.
  • Save time by picking up a flat-rate box from the post office or making sure that you have a box at home before you start baking your bread.
  • Send the bread either overnight or priority mail so that it will arrive within a few days.
  • Alert the recipient that you will be sending bread so that the box is opened upon arrival.
