Hello Friends!

This swap is especially for those of you who would want to know more about the different countries of the world! Yes I do know that one can actually do a quick search on Google etc but wouldn't it be nice if its more personal and hand written? Maybe you might want to be pen pals with your partner in the future, love collecting magnets of the world or want to try snacks around the world or simply just want to have a little bit of fun, so why not join?!


Here's what to include and share in your swap:

1) A5 hand-written Note
A little hand written note (at least an A5 size, on whatever kind of paper you like, as long as it is presentable) explaining where you are from, a little fact about your country, something about your country that others may not know, something about yourself and share your experience on swap-bot etc.

2) A magnet from your country
A magnet token of the country / state / place where you are from. It could be ceramic magnets (do wrap it up so that it will not break), plastic magnets, bottle cap magnets, basically a little token from you to your partner. And also for those of you who love collecting magnets as well, this one's for you!

3) Your Favourite Snack
Include a snack sweets / mints / biscuits / chocolate / granola bar etc, from your country that you enjoy and would like to share with your partner. Do explain why you have chosen this treat. Make sure you zip lock it or put it in a bag, just in in case it spill and make a mess.. oh no, hopefully not (: Also do make sure that it is a new item, not opened or torn or expired, at least 6 months before the date of expiry.


Before sending your package:

Do check your partner's profile thoroughly or direct message them if you need to. Let me know if you need any questions answered. Remember, this is a FUN SWAP, so don't think too much, just let loose and enjoy!! If things go well, I would definitely like to continue more swaps like this, perhaps once a month or so. Everyone was once a newbie, I recently was too. So I am giving a chance (just like how other swap hosts gave me a chance) to all who are interested. Do note that you would have to have a full-well-filled profile*.

*Do fill in the ______ part when you're sending / writing your mail to your partner. Eg "Hello I'm from USA, California ".

*In case you are both from the same country, send something from your area, eg if both of you are in USA - Seattle and Vancouver.. do send something from your town. As of now, this would be an open swap to anyone and everyone's interested but if response if great, there's a high chance the next one would be one from each country (:


Thank you for reading these information and have a great-great day! Sign up now!!

PS: This would be my first time hosting, I apologise if the details are too vague but I would appreciate it if you let me know so that I can improvise. I would angel if needed (:

I would love to join this swap but I am not very comfortable with the way the snack is. Would feel better if it was brand new and wrapped/sealed in it's store wrapper. Will watch anyways.

Jannified 12/ 5/2014 #

Hello LokiAngel! Oh yes, that is actually a good point. Will make the changes now. Thanks for letting me know (:

Hey, this swap sounds so much fun! It might be a good idea to set as requirement 1 person per country, because otherwise people maybe get a partner from the same country. For small countries that might be boring.. :p Just saying, I would love to join!

If it is made one country per person I claim the USA!

TurtleTats 12/ 5/2014 #

can it be a snack or a tea bag im allergic to both peanuts tree nuts and oregano and thyme and some countries put those items in the food or tea bag and if its in another language i would not be able to know

Jannified 12/ 5/2014 #

@ilsepulse That's a good idea! But let's see how this will turn out first. If response is great, there would be a one per country for the next (: Do join!

Jannified 12/ 5/2014 #

@LokiAngel We'll start the one per country on the next swap okay, if response is good (:

Jannified 12/ 5/2014 #

Hello Brazil @stefyrosso

Jannified 12/ 5/2014 #

Hello @TurtleTats Sure, why not? (: Do leave a comment here for your future partner.

Personally, I feel that there should be many people from the countries- I just might want a card from a second person who has also the same choutry. Even if the same countries, there is plenty of things to learn about. No country is just one mile square. There are lots of happenings and things going on in each country. After all, in Utah there are caves, and dinosaur bones and such. Diana MiniQuilt

what is the rating for this?

Jannified 12/10/2014 #

Hello @MiniQuilt I agree with you as well. But if you are like me... I'm from Singapore, its a small country, just a teeny dot, we don't have much happenings here but I wouldn't mind receiving from a fellow Singaporean as well but it'll be a lot more fun if its international (:

Jannified 12/10/2014 #

Hello @purtie26 Rating would be up to you but of cause if you receive it, do give it a 5. A heart or not, it would be up to you (:
