Shaving supplies available in England

I am just getting started and I am waiting on some supplies to come in so I can start shaving with a DE with the Sandalwood cream I have from Art of Shaving. But I also have family in England, more specifically London, and was wondering if there are any recommendations for soaps, creams, aftershaves, or any other items that aren't available here in the US that would be worth having my family send over to me.

Thanks in advance for any help
England is home to many of the world's finest shaving gear companies ... the 3T companies of Truefitt & Hill, Trumper, and Taylor of Old Bond Steet. Brush makers like Simpson, Rooney and Kent. And the upscale colognes like Penhaligon's and Floris.

But most of these are available Stateside. No need to import them yourself.

If you really want to put your family on to something, have them be on the lookout in antique stores for vintage British razors, especially Gillettes, but also Wade and Butcher straights, and almost anything made in Sheffield. Americans go crazy for these, and they are becoming increasingly hard to find in the wild.
