Thanks for the advice but unfortunately I don't have any contacts in the USA that I could ask to do that.

seems haphazard in the past, sometimes we get stung sometimes not. Always seems around the 30€ mark when we've had to pay which in each case doubled the cost of the actual purchase & negated any price advantage.
Using a Us address & getting it sent on as a gift works best

One way to avoid all the hassle is to have the stuff sent to a friend's address in US, and they then forward it on to you in another box. That way it looks like it's "private" and customs might just close an eye. I do that when I order vitamins, never had a problem to date!
