Student moving to Zurich from US

What is the best way to identify the outside of the box being shipped to an address in Zurich. Besides the forms necessary from USPS.

Address being sent to
Mark as Personal Items
Mark as Moving to CH

Any other identifiers to reduce chance of paying any tariff. It will contain personal items, few books, clothes. No new stuff

Thanks
