LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The holiday season means gift getting and gift sending.

Many people wait until the last minute to send gifts to loved ones.

WDRB's Keith Kaiser stopped by the St. Matthews Station Post Office to find out what it takes to get them to their destination safely and on time.

USPS Marketing Manager Alisa Zanetti gave us some helpful advice on proper package packing, holiday mailing deadlines, package security and Informed Delivery.
