Shipping things from your aquarium is pretty easy. Most items (plants, driftwood, etc) can be shipped sealed in a plastic bag and put inside USPS boxes or any box for that matter. Depending on the size of the driftwood, USPS has a Flat Rate Priority Mail Box that ships for $7.70 for weights of up to 70lbs. It isn't the biggest box but it may work for smaller pieces of wood.
There is also the option of using Parcel Post for shipping heavier items. That will be weight based and I'm not familiar with the rates. USPS.com would be a good source for the shipping quotes...
