Be sure to put enough postage on there. Always have your item weighed before you send it. I always do, and my letters or packages arrive to the UK on time (within 5-7 business days)

I need some urgent help quickly! It's my girlfriend's Birthday on the June 30th, so could you all please help by replying asap!
How long, precisely or near enough, does it take to post a Birthday Card and a couple of gifts to America, Nevada through Post, and is this the usually the quickest way possible?

Thanks
From Jacob Ross

P.S. Would much appreciate at least one answer given before Sunday 1st June!

Letters sent airmail should make it in ten days. Packages - it depends on customs.

I shipped a package from Honolulu to London recently, USPS first class. It took 8 days (shipped Tuesday, arrived following Wednesday). If it can make it from HNL to London in 8 days, anywhere else in the USA should be equal to, or less than that.

My daughter lived in England for two years. Letters from the US to the UK or back took on average about seven days. Packages TO the UK took longer - usually about two weeks. Packages FROM the UK (from her and also from eBay) can take two to four weeks. Several simply have never arrived. Several have been severely damaged. Not sure where the problem is along the way.

Thanks for the help Kathryn
But just one more question, Do you think it'd be handy if I noticed my girlfriend in advance that her Birthday gifts are going to be late?

Again, thanks for the help
