Shipping luggage back to States?

Daughter is doing a term in Spain and hopes to travel around Europe prior to flying home.
She wants to travel light & is wondering the best way to get the rest of her belongings back home.

Guessing it would be a large checked-back and maybe another box (40 pounds each).
Looking for best suggestions. FedEx, mail, etc..?

FedEx UPS, etc whatever would be cheaper - easy to Google rates and pick-up points. Mail may have a lower weight limit.

I've done this twice (France and Italy) and just used the local postal service.

Yup, go to the post office. See http://www.enjoy-europe.com/hte/chap24/shipping.htm for some of the dang details. She should separate the books for a lower rate. And make sure that the box weights and dimensions are within the rules. In Spain, rules are rules.

Thanks.
Hoping the school will help her out.
Does Spain have the equivalent to Mailboxes etc/The UPS Store that will have the packing material as well and be able to ship it?

Mushkin -- are you advertising that site? Pretty sure the OP isn't looking a year later.
