I hope that this is okay, I have chosen to post this here because I haven't found any more appropriate sector on this forum.
I am in the USA and would like to buy a "New Nintendo 3DS XL". I would then like to mail it to my home in the UK.
These are the listed dimensions and weight of the item- 1.46 x 7.12 x 5.12 inches; 11.99 ounces.
Please help me if you can:
1) What is the literal cheapest way of mailing it to the UK?
2) What is the cheapest way of mailing it to the UK with most extensive tracking + signatute confirmation, so that it probably can't disappear?
3) I am sending this as a gift. It costs the equivalent of £156.44 British sterling here in the USA. Will my family in the UK have to pay some extra charges to the UK government? What about me here in the USA, are there any extra costs for me?
4) I want to buy it online. The seller I want to buy from will not post to UK. Am I allowed to just tape a paper with my address on the box the seller sends me the item in then buy the postage and have it put on that and sent?
