Hi smile
I am sending a Parcel of Christmas presents to Australia (haven't done this before) and see I have to fill in a customs label.
If I do this though, the person will see what's inside and the surprise will be ruined!
Does anybody know a way around this? Is this just what has to be done?

Sorry if I sound not too bright asking this 😂

Thanks.

You can write "Cosmetics" or "Household Decor" or whatever...what is in it?

Ah, thank you. That's what I was wondering, if you could get round it like that somehow.
It's sunglasses, a book and a couple of cans of drink that you can't get there.

I don't think you'll be allowed to post the drinks...Australia have very strict rules about consumables being posted.

This states no liquids unfortunately.

You CAN send
Chocolate and sweets
Biscuits (shop bought and packaged
Tinned goods
Spreads and preservatives (including jam, marmalade and Marmite)

Ah, ok. Thanks for that. I'll leave that out.
What would you put on there for sunglasses do you think?

Fashion accessories.

Eyewear is a bit obvious...you could put "Accessories"

Excellent! Thank you so much!
Made my day 😁😁

for sunglasses, I'd put PPE.

What is PPE? Protective eyewear or something?
