If you don't have receipts/invoices on shipped items, Customs can and will impose their own prices on the items which are not cheap. Many of these countries derive a large amount of income from import duties (we don't have income tax here so import duty is a huge piece of the govt pie) so you cannot get around it and things can be delayed in clearing etc.
Spread it out amongst your guests....Do not ship anything if it can be avoided and then only if you have a plan in place with your coordinator or someone on island who can advise you which shipping company is the best/quickest/most efficient to deal with (Fed ex here in the T&C gets it to us in 2-3 days...UPS and DHL can be weeks or months). It varies by island depending on the business owners of the companies.
