Celebrating Friendship!

International Friendship Day is July 30. Some countries will celebrate on the first Sunday in August and some folks will celebrate it the day after Valentine's 😜 . Either way, it's always a good time to celebrate friends! For this swap, we'll do that by sending a friendship bracelet and a written notecard.

About the bracelet

The bracelet can be handmade or store-bought. It can be made of embroidery thread, cotton, leather, or other string. Quality-wise, it should be on par with something you'd be proud to give your best friend. To the level where you yourself would wear it, and it'd last awhile if you wore it everyday, like you did back at summer camp!

It will probably help to read your partner's profile to get a sense of their style (or at least what colors they like). Some people may prefer a wild, colorful bracelet like this, while others may prefer something more understated, such as this.

If you've got a strong reaction to something or preference for something (as in, "I'm vegan, no leather" or "I'm allergic to nickel" or "my wrists are really small") you may want to put that in the comment box below for your future partner.

About the card

Being a friend means different things to different folks. Brittanica says friendship is "almost always characterized by companionship and shared activities ...such as serving as sources of emotional support and providing opportunities for self-disclosure and intimacy.

So... the card itself is sender's choice, but a personalized message is expected. Write like a friend would! For this swap, you don't have to dig too deep or go TMI on the notecard, but sharing something of yourself with your partner would be nice. Definitely include more than just the swap name - but don't forget to include that too!

The Swap Specs

  • Send one bracelet and one written note to one partner.
  • Partners should be assigned around July 7 after the holiday festivities. Send your swap out by July 21. (Probably not a good idea to wait for Prime Day... Let's try to get it there by August 2-3!)
  • All Regions are welcome - International & USA. Plan accordingly for postage.
  • No rating requirement, but expect your profile to be checked prior to assigning.
  • Newbie host will angel if necessary, but please don't flake!

So excited as I bought my partner a Native American handmade friendship bracelet while I was at Mammoth Cave this weekend! She also get a Native American postcard to accompany it!

@dinkyde - a beaded bracelet is fine!
