USPS The Most Wonderful Ornament Package Tracker

One of the most frustrating parts of ordering holiday gifts for people online is trying to keep an eye on them during the shipping process. Sure, most services offer confirmation numbers and online tracking, but those numbers have the potential to get lost or you could forget to keep an eye on it. As luck would have it, the United States Postal Service has come up with a pretty clever and festive way to forego all the hassle but keep all the benefits of holiday package tracking.

Pick up what they have dubbed The Most Wonderful Ornament and you’ll find yourself with the ability to track a package full of gifts from the moment it’s been sent until it is unwrapped for the first time. Simply pack the gifts you want to send into a provided Domestic Priority Mail shipping box, attach the ornament to a Christmas tree light strand to power it, and let the ornament do the rest. It will light up with three different colors, each letting you know the specific status of your package. Blue indicates the gifts are shipped, red tells you that they’re delivered, and green lights up once the gifts are finally opened. They’re just in the testing stages for this holiday season, but keep your eyes peeled for when they see a wider release next year. [Purchase]
