Anyone know if the EU - Canada CETA free trade deal means that personal imports won't get hit for import tax?

Just brought a some tees from the USA, $133 for the tees, then $50 shipping. Am I going to get stung at this price and if so, any idea what it will likely be? Will I avoid fees if seller marks as gift, value below $39? Thanks

Always get them to mark down. A value of 30 dollars and marked as a gift is normally ok for me in France. I always choose normal post too, not courriers. Not sure about the UK though.
