    Not sure where you are sending stuff to and budget, but NZ wool items? Blanket, shawl, sweater, scarf?

    Going to the UK, nothing too expensive - something a bit different to the usual stuff I send.
    Really enjoyed reading your 2 mths in Post Mickfin, great attitude.

    Thank you Den. It has been fun and sad, trying and full of highs and lows. I am planning on going back for ~3 weeks in January. My OH is nervous I may not want to come back but I think I will.

    I am for sending scarfs. The long wool ones you can wrap around your neck for the cold. Women, especially the younger ones on your list, may really enjoy the thin shorter knit scarves. They can be worn as fashion. They would be nice and light to ship too. I learned to knit and my first project was a scarf. I am quite proud of it! I am working on a shawl and baby sweater right now.

    merino tops/t-shirts or maybe some NZ treats/beer from somewhere like Sanza?

    We kept an account open in UK with money in and have asked our close family for lists of what they really want. Then we will buy on amazon and get sent directly to them.
