They've taken my Italian one in the past. I think they also work with PayPal.

I've just used Amazon for gifts for the first time and has worked really well....except.... they dispatched a DVD for my Dad before release date and before I had chance to tell him a parcel was arriving!!! Still thankfully they put a gift note in the parcel so they worked it out!

I still have a UK credit card so just used that.

So all good so far!

I've bought stuff through www.uktoyou.webs.com. I've had stuff delivered here, but you can also use it for sending gifts to family in the UK.

Love

Asda is really good for flowers - much cheaper than Next and M&S and my Mum said they lasted ages. We've also sent flower/wine gifts via M&S.

I'm putting together a site that has adverts for companies that do cheap or free worldwide delivery. Click on the link in my signature. Hope no one minds me plugging my site
