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

Hi - I'm a newbie to swap-bot & I'm wondering if this swap is open to "virgin" swappers? I'm international.

Hi. It is, but please make sure you have a well filled out profile first.

I have loved the two of these that I have done and am getting better at selecting items for my person. My goal this month is to not worry so much about my recipient but to wrap and send the parcel before the date. Sorry I am a bit nervous about sending things that are not wanted.

Sorry for the delay in assigning partners. Been unwell. Unfortunately we've lost 10 people from the swap. I want to keep this swap safe. Happy swapping everyone. Please make sure you send on time. I've extended the send by date.

A blind surprise package went out to my partner today. It's coming from the USA. Enjoy!
