Looking to send a gift to America for family, friends or business associates? Look no further! What can be more thoughtful than sending them a small taste of home if they are a Brit in the US or a lover of all things British? Our fun British themed Gift Boxes containing iconic snacks, foods and souvenirs to make anyone smile. Simply choose the Gift Box you want below and your preferred shipping option and we’ll take care of the rest.
Which Gift Boxes Make Good Gifts To America?
All our Gift Boxes are suitable for sending to the USA. The only real consideration is that southern and western parts of the US can get very hot in summer, so we would generally advise against sending Gift Boxes with a high chocolate component like the Chocoholics Anonymous box to those states during hot weather to avoid the contents arriving in a poor condition. Our boxes have no means of temperature control. If in doubt, choose one of the many other Gift Boxes like Pub Snax, Sweet Memories or Oh Crumbs as they are less susceptible to high temperatures.
Buying For Yourself In The USA
If you are living, working or studying in America and crave a decent cuppa with a Hobnob, a bar of Cadbury chocolate or some Marmite to spread on your toast, a British Gift Box may be just up your street! Of course you may already have ways of getting your fix of British goodies online or locally. But try British Gift Box for a fun and convenient treat delivered to your door directly from the UK. Every box will tantalise your taste buds, stir the heart and evoke fond memories of home. You can even subscribe for a regular delivery of your favourite boxes…a popular choice for many expats.

Shipping To USA
Sending gifts to USA with British Gift Box is very straightforward with rarely any problems. We take great care to arrange the appropriate shipping and complete all export/customs paperwork before your order is dispatched. Your present to America can be delivered in as quickly as 2-5 working days with express courier. Royal Mail postal services will take 5-10 days.
The USA is strict about what goods it lets into the country. Food items are allowed in as long as they are non-perishable, ambient and sealed in manufacturers’ packaging. So chocolate, sweets, biscuits, crisps, snacks and all the other goodies that go into our Gift Boxes are fine to send, although customs will occasionally inspect a parcel to check its contents.
The USA has a generous import tax threshold set at $800 (about £620 at current exchange rates). For shipments below this amount, no import duty or tax will be charged by customs. That means your recipient won’t get a nasty surprise of a duty/tax demand to go with the gift on delivery! Larger corporate gift orders over the threshold amount are not exempt and will be charged as appropriate by customs on entry to the country.
