This is based on a swap on the public forums right now and I was given permission to copy but I prefer to do so in my own words. Thanks to @macati

Having a boxful of tiny surprises to unwrap when you are having a bad day is a nice relief. You will send your partner a minimum of 4 tiny treats wrapped somehow so you can't see them. Minimum value $7 max $10. Possibilities include:

-candy or chocolate or other packaged food treat

-mini bath products or cosmetics like lotion, bath salts, soap, nail polish, lip gloss (must be new, wrapped or new, handmade)

-pencil or pen


-craft items

-mini photo frame

-something you've made

-drink mixes

-stationery, notepads, stickers, postcards

-baking supplies like cupcake wrappers or sprinkles

-craft instructions

-key chain or cell phone bling


-DVD or CD (legal please)


This is profile based. If you wish, you may add a section to your profile to specifically mention things you'd like to get or not get for this swap to help your partner. For instance you may wish to add if you are sensitive to certain metals for jewelry or don't have pierced ears if that's not already there. But they will also read the rest of your profile. These are meant to be small so they should be easy to send in a 6x9 bubble mailer. Wrap can be as simple as tissue and a sticker or bit of yarn or ribbon.

*Please package securely. Your partner won't smile if anything is broken.

*Please read their profile carefully. Sending items on their dislikes list could get you a 3 (though I'd hope they'd give you a second chance)

*Dollar store items are permitted. Please make sure they are good quality and be honest and don't count them as being more than they are worth. You could get called out on it.

*Do not send items for other members of the family or pets. These are for the person only unless they add a note saying this is ok.

*Because of the nature of this swap, you may rate temporarily a 5 when you receive your package then finalize your ratings as you open each tiny treat. I think a month is reasonable. Sadly, we all have 4 bad days in a month right?

*If you have a 1 or 3 I am unaware of, please PM me to let me know at least 3 days in advance of the sign up deadline. If you know a flaker has joined, I'll weed them out but if you wish, send me a PM to let me know. Any questions? I prefer a PM to a comment as you will get a quicker response.

Please no chocolates among my treats. As much as I love it, it's already in the 80's here and it will melt before it can be enjoyed.
