There’s no denying the convenience of Amazon. It has nearly every product you could ask for, available to ship to you in a matter of days. In fact, you don’t have to send it to yourself—you can send something to any address you want.

Click Add preferences, notes, access codes and more if you wish to add delivery instructions, but this is optional. When done, click Add address.
