You are in Idaho? I'm in California. I have always used USPS First Class Mail International for items weighing under a couple pounds, and USPS Priority Mail International for heavier items. I've shipped to Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, all with no problems. Good luck!

I always recommend and always use USPS express mail. Better tracking than priority mail and arrives in half the time (supposed to be 3-5 business days). If something is less than $100 insurance is included - Although the initial cost of Express mail is 30-40% more, if you have to buy insurance it is significantly cheaper with express mail than with priority mail, often making the cost difference around $5-7.
