Do NOT send: postcards, free items, single papersheets, paper bookmark.
If your souvenirs show anything thereÂ´s something to tell about (f.e. a famous sight), pls include a note explaining.
9.) 2 wrapped storebought gifts
The gift can be small, but pls donÂ´t send loose lettersheets, teabags, loose stickers, tape samples and things like that. However, you can send a letterpad, a box of tea, a roll of tape a.s.o. Hope you get the idea :).
Spend at least 1â‚¬ / 1,3 USD per gift.
ItÂ´s senderÂ´s choice, but donÂ´t send anything thatÂ´s on your partnerÂ´s dislike list.
Nr 1-8 is fully senderÂ´s choice, however, as always I recommend to pay attention to your partnerÂ´s profile. Make your notes interesting and use nice stationery, or decorate boring stationery ;).
Decorate the envelope/box you use for sending with the focus on your country/area/town.
You can paint, draw, use rubberstamps, pictures, ..... You donÂ´t need to be an artist, however pls put some effort and make your partner smile, before he even opens the envelope :). I personal like to use cutouts from leaflets and magazines to decorate, as I am not artistic.
If it is possible in your country, it would be nice to use real postage stamps, but it is not required.
