How long does it take for a parcel to go from UK to US

I suppose I could google, but I thought I'd ask you lot as you're always sending each other items over the ocean.

It varies widely. You could get it within a week or it could take three (weeks).

With my patented SPEEDY CROW DELIVERY SERVICE it takes just a matter of days.

I've received them in as little as three days, but there was one time The Slider sent me something and it came by way of Australia! Don't recall how long that was, but it was definitely more than a few days.

I've been waiting for some Danish comic books that Googamooga swore he mailed to me for five years now!

Oh did I ever tell you he’d sent me some comics?

Shite only knows. The mail has just become a mysterious lottery to me. Anything ordered on UK Amazon can get here in 8 days it seems but other times heavy envelopes will reach me in 3 weeks.
Cards and letters are a law unto themselves.
We routinely send cards and letters to Yorkshire, London, 'the north' and Bristol. They can vary in time of arrival from 7 days to 3 weeks. Things I send to Beebsy can take a month.
It's very annoying. I personally would rather receive a card or a letter than any email or FB message or whatever and I will still doggedly carry on sending cards as I refuse to stop. I can see why people stop bothering though.

Thanks everyone.
It'll be a parcel ( a vase) so I hope it doesn't get scrutinised too much by customs as that could be a delay as well.
