This is a monthly INTERNATIONAL swap.

Here are the rules:

For this swap, you will send AT LEAST 5 goodies to your partner, in no smaller than an A5 (6x9) envelope.

The idea of a blind surprise is to select and wrap each item individually BEFORE your partner is assigned. For this swap, anything goes...

BUT please only send in the condition you would like to receive.. DO NOT send any dirty or broken items. Items should be as good as new/ new.

Approximate spend: £5 / 5.91 Euros / 7.58 US dollars excluding postage.

This swap is a flake free zone. If you cannot afford to send items to this value, or you do not have the time to, please do not join.

No recent 1s or 3s. I will be checking profiles.

Only well filled out profiles. If you have an empty or brief profile, you will be removed.

Examples of goodies to send:

Small souvenirs from your country




Note cards

Fridge Magnets

Washi Tape

Sticker sheets

Postcards (4= 1 item)

...The list is endless!!

If you receive something you do not use, save it for another swap. Simple :)


I check all profiles, and remove as required immediately prior to assigning partners

I'd do this if it weren't for the wrapping.

Wrapping is a pain...unwrapping is fun. However...no pain no gain.

Is there a regional version of this swap? The postage to Germany cost me just under 19$ last time. I loved being a part of it though!

When do we get partners? I am wanting to plan my partners gift with likes and dislikes in my knowledge or else it may not be as perfect as I'm hoping :) thanks

Jessiejcb2013 - the idea of this swap is to have wrapped the gifts pior to your partner being assigned.

Partners assigned. Happy swapping everyone :)

Of course but don't want to wrap something that affects any allergies so that's all I don't wrap, food and stuff lol :)

So had a little problem - it is the newbiness in me my bad - sorry.

I had my hubby mail my packages and then went out of town for work. Just got back and found out he didn't mail them because of some paperwork for customs that I have to fill out. I will do that tomorrow and then mail them - but I feel terrible so I Unsent - my previous Sent.

Should I emailj the person it was going to even if it was a blind surprise?

Please help someone!

Thanks, Cindy

So never mind - paperwork filled out and the packages are on their way... hopefully I won't be rated to harshly for this lack of knowledge. Sticking to Regional Swaps until I get used to this.
