I love traveling and learning about other cultures- if you are like me, you will enjoy this swap. Welcome to "Show me your Country #3"

You will have to send 1 partner, an envelope OR packet with at least 8 minimum items. The theme is 'your country/ culture'. The items have to be specific to your country/ culture.

Only one person per country allowed in the Swap! So leave a comment below with your country quickly!

For example, If you are from Japan, You can send:

  • a pen with sakura flower pattern on it
  • a notebook with a woodblock print on the front
  • a coin purse with a sumo wrestler on it
  • a post card with a picture of a Japanese celeb
  • a japanese geisha type hair ornament/combs
  • a packet of japanese instant noodles/ ramen
  • a packet of nori seaweed
  • a small folding fan
  • a sheet of Kawaii stickers
  • a badge with Japanese typography
  • a maneki-neko charm for mobile phones/bags
  • a miniature food replica sushi keychain (Sampuru)
  • a pair of chopsticks
  • a buddhist/ white lotus bookmark
  • a Japanese shrine/pagoda fridge magnet
  • a Kokeshi doll or koma/kendama toys
  • Japanese tea (matcha)
  • a Japanese kite print scarf
  • a samurai sword brooch
  • a mini paper lantern
  • a small furin wind chime
  • a drinking straw with a miniature japanese umberella (wagasa)
  • a Japanese recipe
  • a Japanese flag ATC
  • a pretty tin box with mount Fuji image on it

... you get the idea now! basically little souvenirs - conventional or unconventional!

Write a small note about where you are from, explanation of the items (if needed), your swap id, date etc. You can decorate the envelope as well keeping in mind the theme (although this is optional). Also, very important: Please... check your partners profile for dislikes and avoid those things.

Everyone must have a good rating to join. 4.99 and above, all profiles will be checked throughly and you may be dropped if theres too much drama happening in your ratings section or in the public forum. Swappers with at least 10 type three completed swaps only will be allowed. (Sorry Newbies!)

Reminder: Please leave the name of your country as a comment. Only one person per country!!!

If your country is already listed in the comments below, you can still join this swap if:

you are able to do a theme with countries other than where you live (it shouldn't be already listed) ie. you live in USA but you have lots of items from Spain, you can do a Spanish theme, if Spain hasnt already been chosen.

Remember this is the Show Me Your Country swap.. not state/town/region.. you can include something from your state/city but keep the theme to country!

Please send a good mix of interesting items:

Try to think of unconventional souvenirs - not just another keychain you bought from the store - but something that shows the everyday life in your country. Please don't send only paper goods or only handmade goods. Mix it up!

If you have any questions, please leave a comment.

Happy swapping! Enjoy!
