    Does this sentence make sense?

    "Where am I supposed to go to(Do I need a second "to" here, since it is "go to somewhere to do something"?) send my gift to you? Custom?"

    Thanks in advance.

    Re: Does this sentence make sense?

    The second 'to' means the same thing as 'in order to':

    "Where am I supposed to go (in order) to send my gift to you?"

    The second 'to' does not tell you "to a place" or "to someone". It tells you about the means of way of sending the gift.

    You might reword the sentence this way:

    "Where am I supposed to go so that I can send my gift to you?"
