    send by surface mail at any post office. Almost half the price, but last time I did that it took 3-4 months to arrive.

    also it is MUCH cheaper to send parcels under 2kg. For example, last Xmas, I had a parcel of 2.3kg, it was 45 pounds (not surface mail) but for 1.9kg, it was 10 pounds or so...... so you should try grouping into a number of smaller parcels. I think that they treat bigger parcels differently, whilst under 2kg it's still a packet (or something like that). But your local royal mail office will tell you this anyway.
