I am sure a few of you guys have done this before but
are there any customs hoops one needs to jump through
or is it all pretty straight forward?

It's pot luck with Customs. Sometimes your package gets checked and you have to pay their charges and sometimes it doesn't.

What value are we talking about?

If it is of value then I use UPS express - arranged online and collected from the house or you can drop off at their depot for less. A package I sent to USA last week was collected on Tuesday and delivered in Connecticut on Thursday!! Speed and efficiency costs more.

If I entrust to the Royal Mail I usually put "gift" on the customs declaration and a low value. That is a cheaper option but it takes a bit longer. So far I am not aware that any import charges have been levied.

I hope this helps.
