Birthday present on it's way - but at what cost?!

So today I was talking to my mother on the phone and she said she'd sent me a gift from the UK. I had mentioned to her in the past that it's often not worth the trouble but anyway it's done now.

So I asked whether she'd declared the cost of the item or anything like that and she said she hadn't. She didn't want me to know the cost

Anyway so after talking to some other family members I've deduced that it's some sort of perfume with a price of approx £70-£90. But inside the shipping box it's all nicely wrapped in wrapping paper with a birthday card etc.

What's the most likely outcome in terms of customs and other costs I'll incur?
