    Uhhhm.... I would either buy one of those large postage bags (the ones with bubblewrap inside them) or wrap bubblewrap/clingfilm round the hoodie, and then wrap that up in lots of brown paper and tape, then post it

    Wrap it in anything you like (brown paper is good). I've sent things in the post just in plastic bags with the address sellotaped on, and they've got there fine.

    - postage bag = "jiffy bag"
    - thick paper
    - binbags
    - reuse packaging from a previous purchase
    - a paper bag from a clothes store/gift bag cut up and taped together

    Bin bag: cut it up, lay it flat, wrap it as if it were paper.

    Put the address on a piece of paper and stick on each edge with sellotape.

    For a Hoodie: Plastic bag and Brown Paper I would say.

    For electronics: Don't I said..... DON'T just chuck it in a Jiffy bag and whack a FRAGILE sticker on it or BE CAREFUL ELECTRONICS. It will and can still get damaged.

    I sell books wrapped in just cling film. I have been pleasantly surprised with yet still a high feedback rating and no complaints of damage in transit.

    It's cheap and gets the job done. Of course certain other books cannot be wrapped in just cling film :sexface:
