One of the best things about internet shopping is that you are shopping the World Wide Web, not just your local stores — the key word being WORLD. Products can be shipped almost anywhere and currencies converted by your credit card.
Over the next few weeks, Grace Magazine will be bringing you holiday gift ideas from around the globe, so you can find unique presents for your friends and family.
Just be sure you know your true total cost in U.S. dollars. You don’t want to be shocked by the actual sum on your credit card statement.
Use an online currency converter so you have an approximate total.
For example: as of this writing if you purchased something from the U.K. and it costs 29 pounds, in U.S. dollars that would be over 60 bucks. If something were 29 Euros, that would be about $42.
Currency exchange figures change daily so you have to check at the time of purchase.
