Just wondering...if you happened to put a receipt of note of thanks in with the package and it was marked as 'gift' would they make you pay duty on it?
If you put a receipt or a note saying "thanks for the purchase", if Customs opens the package, they will know that it was not a gift and the person will get dinged with taxes. However, for all the 100s of packages I have received from the US, I have rarely had to pay the taxes etc. So, if you do not feel comfortable marking it as a gift, you dont need to. Just put the value of the stamp set (and if possible keep that under $20). Sending by USPS is definitely the way to go ... if you send it by UPS, we definitely get hit hard at this end and it makes it so not worth it. Hope this helps!
