Default Goody box

So three weeks before I'm due to leave and one of my lovely friends has made me a goody box of all things UK to remind me of home when I go (cue me getting all emotional about leaving!).

There's loads of fab UK food items (jars/ packets)/ sweets etc to remind me of home and I'd love to bring the whole box with me, but as far as I understand its a bit of a no-go when it comes to the shipment of my stuff.

Am I left with the only option of putting items in my suitcase that I want to bring with me, or have any of you taken / had sent any goody boxes like this? I have a sea and an air shipment due to go in two weeks time.

Such a lovely gesture!

Ask the shippers?

If you bung it in the regular mail, it probably won't have a problem though, as long as stuff isn't open and doesn't have meat/fruit products.

What's actually in it?

I've shipped jam/tins/etc.

I've brought over in a suitcase teabags, malt loaf, chocolate, ready brek, sweets and loads of OTC medications.

On the other hand, the TSA official wouldn't let my extremely allergic daughter take her bottle of Benadryl on the plane despite their own website saying that they would

More than you ever wanted to know about what you can bring in and how.

Brilliant, thanks folks!!

Most of it is in jars, packets etc so hopefully will be ok. Thanks a lot for the link as that's really useful.

I'll be dreaming about these bloody earwigs if I'm not careful...
