Hi all,
My youngest sister, together with her H and two dcs, (boy age 5, girl age nearly 3) are relocating to Texas in early December. We're having an UnChristmas party this weekend. I don't really want to burden them with presents that they have to cart over, what do other people do? Can I get Amazon to deliver reasonably well personalised parcels? What's the lead time? <witters...>

One of us (UK based sisters) will be escorting our DM over for a visit sometime next spring, but dates and victim lucky girl have not yet been decided.

Yes, go to and you can get domestic 2 day, 3 day shipping etc. I'm in Houston, where is she relocating to?

Yes use Amazon. My Mum used to send Christmas presents to us in the US using We had things arrive in as little as 4 days and also take as long as two weeks, mail times varied a lot there.

Amazon is great. I sometimes get stuff from the UK site delivered to the US. Nearly everything is available in the US though.
