I will be slowing down with swaps for now. My fiancee (we just got engaged the same day) has been diagnosed with triple negative breast cancer. I am absolutely devastated and will commit much of my time to caring for her through her treatment. I will fulfil all my current swaps.
m a 35 year old male.. I have 2 teenagers; ages 18 and 16 and an amazing girlfriend.
I've always been interested in penpalling and exchanging mail in general. I used to exchange FB's as a child. Way before the internet, that was a good way of finding penpals!
*********ALWAYS LOOKING TO DO PRIVATE CHRISTMAS SWAPS **********
Flag lapel pins (I have a huge map and I've started collecting these. So far, I only have UK, Norway, France, Chile, Malaysia, Palestine, Israel, Italy and Canada, USA, Barbados, Singapore )
Postcards (Tourist/ retro ad/ handmade art cards)
Anything with a rainbow on
Scrap paper (to make envelopes)
Cute writing paper
Washi/ deco tape
Pyjamas size L or XL men's (( if a a generous size)
tea towels esp touristy
Labret, tragus and nose jewellery
Milk/ white chocolate (vegetarian only)
Hot chocolate (vegetarian only)
Gift tags (handmade or store bought)
Christmas related items (year round)
Patterned tissue paper
Patriotic items from your country. (e.g. I like to send Union Jack/ British images on note cards, stickers etc)
Anything to wrap gifts
A souvenir from your country I can display
Tote bags for shopping
In 2016, I'm sending shoe boxes to those in need around the world via International Aid. If you'd like to send something for the boxes in our swap (instead of for me,) I'd happy to receive it.
Example: children and adult's hats, scarves, gloves, socks, toothbrushes, toothpaste, soap, toiletries, small toys, pens, pencils, colouring books, notebooks, tissues, small torches or anything else you think might go in a shoe box.
I've seen some lists of dislikes that have been far longer than the likes. I try not to be a fussy person, and welcome practically everything that lands on my doorstep. There are a few exceptions for which I will briefly explain:
Religious items (I'm not religious)
Homophobia (I am the 'T' in the rainbow)
Peanuts (I have anaphylaxis to them. My Epipen hasn't been used for a while ;)
Meat - including gelatine and carmine. (I am vegetarian)
I received a lot of items in 2014 that unfortunately weren't vegetarian.
You can contact me in English, Spanish or Norwegian.
Just thought you might like to know... all the stamps I receive on your mail is sent to support the charity Guide Dogs for the Blind. So, thank-you :)
... Seriously people, there's a whole wide world out there. Why not embrace it!
$0.33 to send a postcard? I'm on the next plane!!
Just an observation...
Wow! There are some REALLY picky people out there.
I am a huge fan of all things Queen, especially Freddie Mercury.
... and lots of cheesy 80s music!!!
