When sending a gift overseas, two important factors to consider are size and weight. The larger and heavier a gift is, the more it costs to send. If your recipient is a man, consider gifts that have meaning and are useful. Even if you buy a generic gift, make it meaningful by having it engraved.

Flasks are metal containers used to hold several ounces of liquor. They are made of many different materials, including stainless steel, silver or gold. Some are even sold wrapped in real or fake leather, or in a gift box with matching accessories, such as a key chain, pen, lighter or pair of shot glasses. Personalise a flask by having the front or bottom engraved with the gift recipient's name or a special word, statement or date.
If the man you are shopping for wears jewellery, get him a thick gold or silver chain for his neck or wrist. If you want to engrave your gift, consider an ID bracelet, which consists of a chain with a blank, engravable metal plate in the middle. Alternatively, purchase a watch and have the back of the face plate engraved. Watches come in a wide variety of styles and prices ranges, so you are sure to find one that your gift recipient will love while staying within your budget.
If the man you are shopping for has a hobby, buy a book for that hobby.
If he is been interested in learning about a specific subject, purchase a beginner's guide on that subject. Other gift ideas include the newest novel by his favourite author, a discontinued book from his childhood that you found online or a book that had a profound impact on your life.
Scratch maps are world or regional maps covered by a scratchable foil -- the same type used on scratch-and-win lottery tickets. The idea is to show off all the places you have been by scratching off the foil layer and revealing the colourful sections of the map beneath it. Since a scratch map is so lightweight, it should not cost much to send.
