Does anyone know of a good website for sending something nice to my SIL who lives in South Africa and is going through a difficult time.

Thank you.

Are you thinking of sending a package or parcel or just a message or virtual gift.

Hopefully something via a company eg chocolates.

You mean like Interflora do with flowers, do Thornton’s do chocolates by courier delivery?. If it’s in a large town or city it should work

I was hoping that someone would know a reliable online company in SA rather than a uk one! But I will investigate Thorntkns etc as a last resort.

It depends on what you want to send. If you want to send a parcel from here you could try parcel 2 go, I used them to send a parcel to Canada. They worked out much cheaper than anyone else. They use Fedex. Parcel took 4 days to get there. Very impressed with them
