This is a monthly INTERNATIONAL swap. I am regularly asked if this swap can be made USA only. My answer is always no. There are an abundance of US only swaps out there. Please join those if you aren't happy with international shipping.

NB I cannot angel this swap this month.

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 know it says in my profile that it's a pain for me to wrap items as they have to be checked at post office, but will of course do it for this swap as it's part of the swap. Are small/pretty gift boxes OK for some things instead of paper?

snailmailer1 03/13/2015 #

Yes. As long as everything is wrapped. :)

HelloWheeze 03/13/2015 #

Wooo this will be fun :)

Arya 03/15/2015 #

Do you mean you have to wrap everything separately and then put all the wrapped goodies in an envelope? :)

snailmailer1 03/16/2015 #

Yes. That's correct

I am checking through profiles today. This might take a while cos there are a lot of you. Please be aware I will not respond to any private messages re: why you have been banned. If you are unfortunately banned it's either because you have no profile or short one, recent unexplained 1's or 3's or any other reason I do not feel comfortable having you in this swap.
