  • Take a macaron insert that is durable and sleek inside the macaron box that you have chosen. We highly suggest macarons inserts since they keep them in place and protect them from breaking. 
  • Place all the macarons one by one inside the macaron box, and you may also make extra decorations in case you want the package to look attractive. We suggest a cute bow. 
  • Now that your box is all set up, you need to secure the box at all ends with tapes so that the macarons cannot move or pop out of the box. 
  • Place the box of macarons in a shipping box now and make sure it is at the centre. You should add some fillings in the box so that the box full of macarons are secured well. 
  • Our next tip is specifically for macarons. Although it is optional, we would highly suggest you put ice packs around the macarons. This is done in order to keep them fresh and intact. The ice packs have two jobs for the box. Not only do they keep these delicacies fresh and delicious, but they also act like they are an extra barrier to the macarons. 

We would like to add that ice packs are an optional item, and although they may not be necessary, they are a great addition to your packaging and seem like extra care if the packaging is supposed to be for your loved ones. 

These steps are all that you need to protect and secure your macarons in place. Follow the step-by-step guide on how to take care of your delicate desserts, and they are sure to be received in their pristine and delicious state.

Now that you are done with almost every major step involved in this process, the last step includes shipping those sweet macarons to the people they are meant for. 

We would like to suggest you choose either priority mail or even overnight shipping. The reason for that is macarons are supposed to be freshly received, and hence if you choose a shipment process that takes too long to deliver, they may lose their freshness and exotic taste as well. 

This even includes the fact that if you choose a shipping service that delivers late, the ice pack may even thaw in such a long period of time. And hence things will go wrong with your delivery of the macarons.
