Oberon Design and Customs in the UK

I already have one of the premium covers for my PRS-600 which is fine and does the job, but after seeing a thread mentioning the covers at Oberon Design which caught my eye I ordered one.

The only thing was I got hit by customs charges and received a letter asking for import vat and a processing/handling fee to be paid. I paid it as I really wasn't sure about disputing it, nor did I want the hassle of tying the cover up in some depot till it was resolved.

Anyone else had this issue? Could I have got around this by asking Oberon Design to mark it as a gift before shipping?
