I have brought in stuff, and just told them it is personal and will be leaving with me. But not might fly with the negligee. Normally a smile and nice greeting has gotten me trough most questions at customs.

I am bringing my suit, her wedding dress, various other dresses and negligees, plus some nice jewelry to go with them. She is already warning me that if the gifts are over $1000. I will get taxed heavily. She suggests I hide the jewelry in my shoes in the suitcase. I don't want to spend twice as much on the jewelry with all their taxes, and I don't want it stolen, if they find it rummaging through the suitcase. My friend suggests shipping them there, but won't customs open it and charge me taxes? Or steal it? This is my 1st international flight, and I could use some suggestions folks! Thanks!
