Send it special next day delivery for about £6.70. £500 cover.

if you value it at less than £41 consider recorded for cheaper postage.

what shall I package it in? I'm such a dumbo.

That's 1kg so I imagine your ipod + won't be heavier than that, 0.5kg is £5.50

Bubble wrap them tightly into a box and put some tape around the box, put the address on the box,take the box down to the post office and ask the kind lady behind the counter if you could post the package special next day delivery please.

If you do this tomorrow it wil cost you £2 more if you want it to get there on Saturday, otherwise tell her Monday is fine. Don't forget to say thank you before you leave.

Has the buyer got good feedback,did you check?

Wrap ipod in lots of bubble wrap, wrap adapters separately in bubble wrap too. Then place in box and make sure they are snug. You might also want to wrap the ipod up with cardboard so adapters don't knock the screen, but I always over wrap things just to make sure things arrive safely.

Go to a supermarket and ask for banana boxes or any boxes they have if you get banana boxes ask for the bubble wrap that goes with it, buy some serious brown tape and use some newspaper to buff it up.

Cut up a big cardboard box/wine box/any type of box.
If no cardboard just wrap in lots and lots of bubblewrap. Then add some more bubble wrap. Then wrap in lots of brown tape all over and use sellotape to attach piece of paper with address written on it. Remember to put a return address/sender details as well as who it is to be delivered to.

Serious post
You can use boxes that are not from amazon.

you got any boxes that the ipod + accessories will fit in that wont get ripped up in the post?

wrap them up in bubble wrap, put them in any smallish box, write the address with a permanent marker and stick that on the box (leave some space in the top corner of the box for the stamp, the stamp is actually a big sticker and a second sticker for the recorded bar-code, each sticker is about 5cmx5cm)

when you post them ask them to verify the post code and keep the receipt.

if you have any unused stamps at home, you can use them as part payment for it.
