  • Anything nice or useful with my name on it (Colinde) or with the letter C
  • Bar towel from your country, or famous or local beer brand
  • CD's you recommend me, something unusual, different, or something you think I will like (2nd hand is fine but without scratches)
  • Chocolate (milk is my favorite)
  • Candy (willing to try anything new!)
  • City maps / subway maps / touristy

  • Wax melts / wax bars (Christmas smells, cake smells, Lush dupes, nature smells. Yankee candle and Goose Creek are my fav but I love to try anything new)


I tried to make my wishlist as big as possible, to give you the best idea of my likes and dislikes. Hope it helps you. If not, please send me a message :) Again: second hand mostly is fine, but it has to be in good condition. Don't send trash.

Please do NOT send: little money wallets, paperclips, pencils, erasers, as I have plenty already and don't need them so much. Thanks for understanding!


Black, cognac brown, rusty brown,mustard yellow, dark forest green and red are my favorites.

For in my house I like red and silver/metal colored thingies. Socks are welcome in all different happy colors and prints! I'm a colorful person!

DISLIKES: I don't like beige and I also don't like things with lots of glitter on it. Gold is okay but I'm more a silver person. Also no rhinestones please, no fake diamonds, no 'bling bling' at all, since I simply don't like it.

Food, candy, chocolate, snacks

I really like: Snacks, candy and chocolate especially from your country, chocolate (milk, white, 'weird tastes', with nuts, with fruits, with alcohol, with mint), something you really recommend me, things with strawberry or lemon (not too sour) flavour, Japanese candies (those sticks in different flavours, and I loooove the Milky candy), chocolate from Germany, Switzerland, Austria and Belgium, Mozart Kugeln, the green Aero chocolate from the UK, cookies, cookies with chocolate, crisps, anything with nuts, chocolate with sea salt. Surprise me with something you'd recommend me. I'm willing to try (almost) anything.

DISLIKES: I don't like: ginger. Not at all. Also the green tea / matcha thing is something I don't like.

Hot beverages

I'm a big lover of coffee, latte machiato, cappuchino, hot chocolate, tea, chai tea, and coffee with special flavours. I'd love to try all kind of coffees and hot chocolates from all over the world. Every taste is welcome, also weird ones. I'm already excited yet!

Also those special sirups to put in the coffee are welcome. I'd like to try something new! I also love anything Starbucks.

Tea (please only send for tea-swaps!)

When it comes to tea, I especially like Rooibos and English Breakfast. Autumn teas and winter teas are lovely; I like it spicy (cinnamon and other spices). Please don't send me Pickwick tea because that's available on every corner of the street here :) Feel free to send me loose tea as well (but be sure you pack it very well).

DISLIKES: I don't like: ginger, tea with 'smokey' flavours, blueberries, blackberries, tea with a sour flavour (if it's sour, I probably don't like it), jasmine, lavender tea.

Bath, body, beauty

I'm a big lover of Lush, The Body Shop, Bath and Body works, and Sephora products but I love to try anything new that is just as good. I like lipbalm (without color/tint or softly pink glossy) and black mascara (I prefer mineral or vegan make-up, or at least not tested on animals). I like to try new perfumes / scents so be welcome to send me these. Body-scrubs and facemasks are also welcome. But, only good quality stuff please :-) . I'm a lover of nailpolish as well, but please no glitters or childish stuff.

Big big wish: can anyone please send me the Bath & Body Works lipbalm over night treatment? you'd make me SO happy!!!

DISLIKES: But, please DON'T SEND ME: Lipstick; I never wear it. Please also no powders, no blush, no concealer, no bronzer, no foundation, no eyeshadows; nothing of that at all. Especially nothing with glitters. I might be picky, but it would be a pity if you send me things that I cannot use, isn't it?

Thanks for understanding!!


My postcards preferences are:

  • #1 - Pugs ❤️ I love them and I collect pug-postcards :-)
  • #2 - Subway maps (I already have: London, Munich, Hamburg, Berlin, Paris, Moscow, St. Petersburg, Vienna)
  • #3 - Books, bookstores, reading people, and so on.
  • #4 - Touristic views, beaches, national parks
  • #5 - Typewriters, coffee, tea, brushes, rainbows, staircases, cats in windows, black and white cards, owls, photo camera's, pencils, and so on
  • #6 - Shopping streets / markets / festivals
  • #7 - Motivational or spiritual quotes
  • #8 - (ad)cards from bars, café's, clubs, hotels

Last but not least...

People should treat other people as they wish to be treated themselves; also on Swapbot ;-) I'm absolutely not a flaker. If you haven't received something from me, then please let me know, so I can (try to) fix it.

I never rate 1 or 3 without sending a message first. I hope you will do the same. I also rate my swaps as soon as I receive them.

Comment: I love your package and your letter! :-) We also have those chocolate sticks and i also had them in my childhood. :-) With the bubblegum ones you could actually smoke because you could blow the powder out. It only worked one time. :-D I love everything you sent but my highlight is the cinnamon stick as that is completely new to me. Thank you for all the yummy treats and the pretty box! :-)
