    Jingle Bells?

    Advertisements
    Here's my dilemma...sending DB a stocking in his Christmas cp, which came with a bell attached. I was told that putting things like musical cards in can be bad because if they start making noise, they may be opened and inspected. So, if some postal worker shakes the box are they going to think, "JINGLE BELL! Could be dangerous. Should probably delay this package until at least February to inspect it..." My real question: does anyone know, is the bell ok or should I try to cut it off without ruining the AWESOMENESS that is the rest of the stocking?

    I would just put on the customs form that you have included Holiday decor with bells. If anyone heard anything, they would check the form for contents.

    Just maybe wrap some bubble wrap around the bells and tape them so they won't make noise. It should muffle them enough!

    BTW. I have never heard that before that you can't send these sort of things. I always sent ex DF musical cards, however, they'd have to be opened to make noise so it's a bit different. It's the holiday season, if someone heard a jingle bell in a cp I don't think it would be questioned much. Not like there's "HELP LET ME OUT" coming from the box
