Until the advent of cardboard made boxes a reality, humans were forced to place all deliverables into the mouths of pack mules and hope that they didn't get hungry.

The UPS Store’s supply of packing and moving supplies can help customers bundle important packages or entire households into sturdy, snug containers. The sizes of UPS's durable shipping boxes range from jewelry box to jukebox ($1.95–$2.25 for a 6"x6"x6" box; $12.65–$14.50 for a 15"x15"x48" box), making it easy to delight far-off loved ones with tokens of affection or to frustrate enemies with a package containing 12 nested boxes.
