if you don't have the original boxes, I would maybe wrap them in some bubble wrap and put them in a box? if they are real good and you don't want them damaged that would probably be a good idea. just my .02

Bubble wrap is a great idea. I would do the same if I didn't have the original boxes.

I keep all my original packaging unless I sell the computer to someone or I trash it. It doesn't take too much space anyways. Plus, if the part didn't work after awhile, I can reuse it to send it back under warranty.
