Creative Journaling Kit
Create a lovely kit for your partner for their journaling needs.
Your kit should be enclosed in a box or bag that is sturdy and decorative enough to keep their supplies in. The kit container is a big part of this swap, as it is intended to be reused, so donâ€™t skimp. An altered lunchbox, cosmetic bag or childs tackle box are all good suggestions. Be creative. This should be something nice enough to be displayed on their desk, yet practical enough to be placed in their totebag for journaling on the go.
You will need to choose at least 6 ITEMS from the list below. If you want to add extras that arenâ€™t on the list, that is fine, but you must also INCLUDE 6 LIST ITEMS. Many of these items will need to be purchased. I am not setting a price limit as some people are better bargain-hunters. :) But please donâ€™t skimp on quality items. These kits are meant for adults, so while its fun to be whimsical and use crayola products sometimes, please do NOT send a box of childrens supplies.
