    Aussie online store?

    Has anyone got any recommendations for an online baby products/clothing store that is based in Australia? I would like to send a gift to a friend living in Sydney who's just had a baby... and would have just mailed something over except stringent customs requirements may thwart or delay the delivery of a package.

    Thanks in advance!

    What do you plan to send? I've sent plenty of baby and other gifts to Australia without a problem with customs. I just avoid sending food or wooden items.

    have a look at Baby Boxes.

    I've been on the receiving end (and loved my box) and also given them to many of our friends, who also all loved them.
    They have always been fast and reliable and the products are good quality.

    All the best.

    I was thinking clothing, but wondered if customs would be fussy over them - e.g. clothing may contain bamboo fibres!

    I've sent plenty of clothes, baby blankets, bibs, etc, back, and they've arrived without a problem. The only item that was ever opened for inspection was some hand cream for my Grandma!

    You can also try Send Quality Roses, Buy Flowers ? Flower Delivery from Online Florist and Gift Shop and click on "baby gifts" - they have some cute stuff.
