What to Buy (and Not to Buy) for Father’s Day to Ensure Fast International Delivery

Right now is a great time to buy Dad the perfect gift for Father’s Day, but what should you buy? And what should you avoid this season? Here are some of the top items to buy (and not to buy) for Father’s Day.

What to Buy: Clothes

Every dad loves new clothes, and you can get modern and timeless clothing at great prices from the USA. Be sure to check out stores like Kohl’s and Old Navy for special Father’s Day pricing, or browse our recommended stores for a wide selection.

Buy: Electronics

What dad does not want a new iPad or gadget for Father’s Day? You can find great deals on name-brand electronics from Apple, Dell and more when you shop the USA! Try electronics stores like Tiger Direct, MacMall and Sharper Image for great bargains, or visit Amazon to find anything Dad might want.

Buy: Fitness Supplies

Dad wants to stay in shape, and Father’s Day is a great time to pick up the latest fitness gadgets. Whether you’re looking for a trendy new GPS watch or the latest workout clothing, check stores like MooseJaw and Sports Authority.

Buy: Accessories

Dad would love a new briefcase, carry-on or suitcase for Father’s Day! You can find great deals on luggage and accessories at stores like eBags and Zappos. While you’re browsing Zappos, why not look for a cool new pair of shoes as well?

Avoid: Food

Dad may love some American food straight from the USA, but many countries restrict the import of fresh produce and perishable foods. Chocolates and confections may also melt while in your suite or during international transit. If Dad insists on good USA food, try Just Poppin for delicious gourmet popcorn.

Avoid: Cologne

You want Dad to smell good on Father’s Day and all year long, but many colognes contain alcohol that could catch fire during international transport. MyUS can ship many colognes with special packaging for a small additional charge, but delays and reviews could cause the cologne to arrive after Father’s Day.

Avoid: Weapons

A sword or rifle may look nice hanging on Dad’s wall, but you may have trouble exporting these items from the USA. MyUS cannot export anything that resembles a firearm or explosive, and the review process for knives and swords may mean that your gift does not arrive until well after Dad’s big day.

How to Get your Purchases Delivered As Fast As Possible Overseas

Get your gifts fast by asking that the merchant include an invoice or payment receipt with your merchandise.

Packages that arrive with a merchant invoice showing the price you paid and the merchant’s contact information clear our login procedure much more quickly, and can be available for export as soon as a few hours after they arrive. To help ensure your package arrives in time for Dad’s big day, be sure to ask the seller to include an invoice with your package.

MyUS can help you get your package delivered from the USA to anywhere in the world in just two to four days. If you are already enjoying this great service, why not upgrade to Premium Membership and enjoy free storage in your suite and 20% lower prices?
