We have two nephews that live in the states who are 8 & 11. Ask sil for ideas and she suggested something they can't find there?!

Our son is only 1 and most of our friends have girls so I'm a bit stuck with ideas?

Nothing too heavy or big as has to be posted

That's a tricky one as there isn't very much that is unique to the UK except for foodstuffs and UK themed items.

Sweatshirts / hoodies are big in the USA - maybe UK themed ones. I tend to buy coin purses and trinkets.

British Toy buses, taxis for the younger one and British mouse pad/tablet holder for the older?

Good luck!

DSD is 9 and loves Lego, Diary of a whimpy kids (books) and star wars but I guess they are all things you can buy in the US.

Paperchase always has lots of London-themed stationery, Christmas decorations, lunchboxes etc.

My DS is 11 and he is so desperate for one of these that my SIL has just ordered one from the uk for him!
