What household or grocery items do you wish you had shipped to post?

I can't think of anything specific, but since this post has no DPO, it is a good idea to review diplomatic pouch restrictions and plan accordingly. The big concerns are liquids and electronic items with lithium Ion batteries. - Apr 30, 2017
Baking items like cupcake wrappers and decorations. - Jul 8, 2016
More fitness equipment; our own gardening tools and supplies; different consumables (the welcome packet had it all wrong - things we thought would be scarce are readily available, and vice versa); our car (Nissan Murano). - Mar 2, 2015
Vanilla, spices you cannot live without. - Oct 12, 2014
Most things are readily available. Just whatever specific brand that you know you won't be able to find locally. - Nov 24, 2013
Nothing. Order what you need/want online and have it shipped -- slowly -- through the pouch. - Jul 27, 2013
Sun screen (hard to find high SPF regionally). - Apr 22, 2013
Camping gear. - Jun 6, 2010
