You'll have to sift through the powdered ones but you'll find the liquid type on Amazon.co.uk.

The Amazon search function is not the best!

I use a bit of vanilla ice cream and a mix of amaretto and hazelnut liqueurs (Disaronno and Frangelico).  It's really nice, but I only have coffee on the weekend.  ;)

I’ve never found any in the UK, but I made my own last week and I swear it tasted just like the real thing! (I mean, I’ve lived here 4 years, so it tastes like I remember at least... lol)
It was a recipe I found online and took a screen shot of. I only captured the vanilla flavour, but here it is:

Poundland has individual coffee creamers, by the way.

On the dairy-free side, Alpro has released some coffee-dairy-free-milk hybrid things. They're slightly sweetened, and I've mixed them with my regular coffee. Has been a nice creamer like substitute  :)

You can easily make your own half and half, it's 10-12% fat.
You'll find this helpful!

Single cream is 18% fat. So you would just need to dilute it a bit. Or be happy with something slightly creamier! When I need a pint of half and half I use a 300ml single cream, pour one cup, then fill the second cup as full as it will go and top it off with whole milk. My homemade cheddar and broccoli soup is just as lovely here. :)

The usual. American girl meets British guy. They fall into like, then into love. Then there was the big decision. The American traveled across the pond to join the Brit. And life was never the same again.

Ohhh sounds wonderful. I could drink the cream on its own over there!

I've done this as well and they been alright. Not as good as creamer, but better than just regular milk I think.
My, how time flies....

hehe  I'll have to drag my husband along, but he's good company so you guys probably won't mind.  My husband makes our coffee drinks because he measures alcohol better than I do.  I diluted my coffee a little too much last time I was in charge of it, and while it was a fun afternoon, I wasn't happy with the resulting weakness of the coffee flavour.  Still enjoyable, but not as enjoyable.

I'm almost angry that there's no booze in my coffee as we speak now...lol
