As we combed the websites of U.K. department store Selfridges, we discovered something surprising — oftentimes, the prices of gifts were much cheaper than what we could find for the exact same thing on these shores. Thanks to a favorable exchange rate and a quite reasonable, flat $30 shipping rate to the U.S., there’s no better time to scoop up gifts from the Oxford Street institution. Below, some standouts (and stay tuned for our companion Brexit shopping piece on hacking your way to GBP deals).
