I live in the US and all my family are in the UK and I have finally come to the realization that I need to do my Christmas shopping online as the last two packages I shipped to the UK cost more to ship than the price of the gift inside.

Can anyone give me some good websites, I often go to M&S or White Stuff, which I like for my Mum, Dad and Sister, but I need a good suggestion for my Nephews who are 17 & 14 other than Amazon as I get bored with them.

Thanks fro any thoughts

What sorts of things are you looking to get for your nephews?

ASOS is good for clothes and some gifty stuff, or Firebox for more tech/gadget things.

thanks for ASOS - I'll take a look.

I don't know really what to get them I want to look around, they are at that difficult age where they are too old for toys/games, but not too into cloths especially the 14 year old. The 17 year old just had his birthday and I sent him some t-shirts from his favorite shop over here, so I feel for Christmas I need to get him something exciting.

I may end up going with a couple of little things rather than a big gift maybe spend no more than 30 pounds.

AHH this is why its so difficult - I have no idea what to get.

I use (ie the US version). Boring I know, but very quick & handy for giftcards, electronics, games and branded goods.
