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

Almost everything that I use/eat/drink on a daily basis, e.g., toiletries, dish soap, canned goods, bottled goods, spices. If I had to do it again, I'd max out my shipment and treat it as a consumables shipment. - Feb 2019

US soap, different spices, and other pantry products not seen on the supermarket shelves here. More equipment for beach activities. - Jun 2013

Speciality foods, such as Asian sauces, etc. Spices, as there is not much variety here. A treadmill, as it is very hot to exercise outdoors. - May 2013

If you drink, alcohol. The prices are very high for basic liquor, and beer selection is ok but limited. - Jan 2012

Mainly baking related, i.e. chocolate chips. - Aug 2011
