Remember the correct address

When sending Christmas greetings, it’s always a good idea to check that each parcel and card has the correct address on it. Each Christmas greeting should include the following information: the recipient’s first and last name, street address and building number, stairway and apartment number, postal code as well as the name of the city/municipality. You can double check the correct format of street names and postal codes at It is also advisable to add the recipient’s phone number to parcels, as this speeds up the sending of the notice of arrival.
