Sign up to M &S newsletter and they tell you when they have free postage to Oz. Also Moonpig have a oz site for cards.
Hq hair post free as well - otherwise mostly chocolate is what is missed...
My mum has recently been ordering from big w online for the kids. They home deliver. So she just chooses what she wants to get, pays and its here! Same with eBay,.. Target.
Amazon not that much use anyway as there is no Australian Amazon - we have to use either the American or the UK site. We can still use them but the delivery costs might be a bit steep sometimes.
Small postable things I miss - nah, not small. Postable but heavy and expensive (chocolate and foodstuff, mostly)
Mind you, it only costs £10 for M&S to deliver out here, and I still buy their underwear by preference (knickers out here are shocking, IMO) so M&S vouchers might be an idea?
The Book Depository delivers free worldwide; they might be an idea.
Online gift cards, I don't know of any. Some of the websites here are still extremely backward, so it might be step too far for some!
Looking for ideas for gifts for relatives who've moved Down Under please. Can you think of any small postable things you miss from the UK? Any Oz companies that do gift cards online? Just seems a bit silly swapping Amazon vouchers all te time.
