    Depends on the declared value. We ship weekly DHL as well as normal post parcels to US with a declared value of up to USD 300.00. So far ( and it's been a LOT of parcels ) there were never any customs duties or taxes to be paid.

    Just keep the declared value under USD 100.00 to be on the safe side.

    77 GBP for 6kg - that is quite a rip off. But UK also takes 27 pounds on a DHL shipment with a declared value of just under USD100.00.

    Prob would have been easier to buy a voucher for online store over there. The prices of clothing in the US is cheaper than here too.
