Shipping an iPad Overseas

I'd like to ship a new iPad from the US to France as a gift (I haven't bought it yet). It needs to arrive there in about a week and a half. A few quick online searches reveal this may be more complex and costly than I thought - USPS apparently won't deal with anything containing lithium batteries, and FedEx seems to have special requirements and rates for this kind of shipping as well. Anyone know the best way to go about this? And is it likely to be cheaper just to order directly from the Apple store in France, with all the extra shipping and customs fees I might have to pay?

Not the rat-a-tat-tat kind.

How can I order a gat (a hat worn by ancient Korean scholars) and get it shipped to England? I'm in the US. I'm looking to spend under $50 total. It doesn't have to be of the highest quality - it's a bit of a gag gift.
