Let me know if I need to write anything special on the package to help it get through customs for your country.
Also, should I avoid sending chocolate, coffee or tea in your package? I like to send small sample packets just for fun.
Me luvves surprises in packages!!! I don't think there will be problems with tea and things like that. The packages that I've sent from here, I only had to declare that there were no dangarous goods in it, that it was a gift valued less than a certain amount and that was it!
(the few times that I ordered from the USA online I think the tax free amount was around 40 dollars so that should be no problem
IF you have to be more specific, I guess it's better to not mention it's natural viber or wool or something and also no fresh food etc because they are a bit hesitant about stuff that might carry viruses and what not.
If you need more specific info, I will go to the postoffice tomorrow and ask them just to be on the safe side, ok?
