This swap was originally created by @smilernpb for UK and Europe. I copied and tweeked the text from her swap and give her full credit for the idea and description and huge thanks for letting me copy and post for USA. Thank you Nicola!

OK, so here is the scene. I finish work at 6, get home at 6.30pm. By the time dinner is out of the way, and the chores are done, hubby is on the computer. It's 8.30pm (ish) and I open up my Girls Night In swap package....

Here is what the swap is all about. It's a package of goodies, totalling $10 or thereabouts, containing treats, to keep you busy and to give you a lovely evening.

It MUST include a DVD (either new or used, but it must work and absolutely no copies - it MUST be an original DVD in the original case). You can buy a huge seclection of cheap DVD's from supermarkets, so this doesn't need to take up the whole cost of the package).

Other items can include things like: socks, mini bottles of bath and body treats, face mask sachets, lipbalm, bar/s of chocolate, hot chocolate/tea, a mug, reading book/magazine (again either new or in very good condition)....use your imagination! Create a package that you would LOVE to recieve yourself. However, it is a sender's choice package BUT please check your partners profile for ideas.

Please note that due to the nature of the swap it is USA ONLY (cheaper postage!) and also you must have a rating of at least 4.95 and above to join. No newbies (sorry) and your ratings cannot just be from e-mail swaps, you must have had at least 5 snail mail package swaps. I will check all profiles before assigning partners, and I reserve the right to ban anyone I think has a dodgy profile. And because we need to get inspiration from partners, well filled out profiles, only please. :o) Oh, and you must have logged into Swap-Bot at least 48 hours before the last day of signing up.

Any questions, please ask!

One more thing, it is entirely possible that you may be sent a DVD that you have already seen, however this cannot affect how you rate the package.

EDIT: I have been asked about the genre of DVD so all I would say is keep with the theme 'Girls Night In' and choose a girly/chick flick type of film. I hope this clarifies things

Can we ask our partners what movies they are interested in receiving? lol.... I just hate to send one they already own you know?

mouseybrat 01/14/2011 #

it is senders choice but i think it would be fine to ask before sending.

Sounds like a great swap but I really dislike Girly/Chick Flick type movies..lol

costcogal07 01/16/2011 #

me too wee, the more action the better grins

This sounds like a lot of fun -- as I newbie, I don't meet the qualifications (yet) but am on the "watch" list just in case that changes before the signup date. :D

This is an awesome idea!

nellswell 02/ 3/2011 #

Yay! I now have enough swaps to meet the qualifications for this one, so I've signed up. I'm looking forward to it!

I am a newbie so I can not join this one. This sounds like it could very well be my favorite type of swap yet! I do hope you do another one for the US only here soon.

I have sent my items out so I should be getting some rating here soon :)

I was sad to be dropped from this. I'm not a newbie (here or to swapping...have almost 1000 all positive feedback on listia). You said its b/c I didn't have 5 mailed swaps. I completed 3 coupon swaps, a frog item swap, and a red item swap. Plus am working on 1 other at the moment, will be completed today actually for tomorrow's mail. I am confused about the drop :(

mouseybrat 02/ 5/2011 #

@ribbitribbit26 I am sorry to drop you but the guidelines stated no newbies and "5 snail mail package swaps". Coupon swaps fall more under letter type swaps. Plus you only just joined swap-bt on 01/04/11 and have 8 completed swaps. That still makes you a newbie in my book. sorry to disappoint you. I made my decision based on the information on your profile. To me it did not meeet the guidelines in the swap description.

I'd love a really good comedy over a chick flick, but there are some great girly movies out there as well!

I love romantic comedies :)
