    I want to get my girlfriend a gift for her birthday. The thing is, she lives in London and I don't even live in the country, and unfortunately can't be there on the day.

    I want to get her a quirky present, related to what she is studying - biology. Do you know of any such internet shops in the UK that can also deliver the package directly to her address?

    Many thanks!

    Try eBay or Amazon?

    What in particular are you looking for?

    search for 'giant microbes' on google - they're great gifts and depending on where you get them from you can get them delivered whereever you want!

    Only down side is that they will probably send the invoice details as well - so if you don't want your girlfriend knowing the price, it is a bit risky! You can obviously ask them to not send the invoice details, but many of them sell so many items they usually ignore such requests.....

    They both have slightly quirky gifts, the former including science related.

    Then ppl should pay double fees for post, invoice can be sent to the buyer n the gift to his gf.
