Although be warned that there is a limit on how much tobacco and alcohol you can import to Portugal, regardless of if you are sending from the EU or not. If your item is a gift then it qualifies for €45 tax exemption, meaning you will not have to pay any additional charges on a gift valued under that amount.
You can find more information on Portugal’s customs requirements on their official site.
Portuguese addresses are notably different form their UK counterparts. Their postcodes are made up of digits and place names. 7 numbers are separated with a hyphen after the first 4, after the 7th number a location is named. What follows is an example of a typical Portuguese address format.
