My roomie and I keep a bucket of little presents in our library so that when we have a rough day or just need a pick me up we choose one and open it. It's such a fun thing to do and it's even better when the gifts come from others so that it's a surprise to both of us when it gets opened. So I was thinking that swap bot would be a great place to fill up our bucket.

For this swap you will send five (or more) dollars worth of small wrapped gifts to each of your two parners, there should be a minimum of four gifts. The gifts should be about palm sized or smaller so that they'll all fit into a containter together. Gifts do not have to be profile based, but do not send anything on their dislikes list! Used is fine as long as it is in good condition. No holiday items unless specified as a like by your partner (this applies to candy, etc, also).

I am going to be very strict about who I let into this swap because I want it to be a pleasant and fun experience for everyone who participates. Therefore you must have at least a 4.8 and no unexplained ones or threes in the last year. No newbies,sorry, you must have at least 20 swaps under your belt to participate. And lastly, you must have a well filled out profile. I am keeping it USA only due to shipping costs, but if someone wants to use this idea for an international or overseas version, go for it. You can even copy and paste if you want to.

A few ideas:

hot drink packets (I recommend making sure you have info about the type of drink packets and candy/food you like or don't like in your profile)

candy or treats


an envelope of ephemera

lotion, bath bombs, etc

pet toys/treats

fun pencils/pens/erasers

art supplies

rubber stamps/ink pads/etc

dip mix

anything fun that you think of!

If this goes well then I will likely run it again in the future to replenish our buckets. And, as with any of my swaps, I will angel if the need arises. Also please try to send fun exiting gifts that will fun to open for your partner. If you think it's lame, your partner probably will to.

Happy Swapping

This look like such a fun swap. If you ever do this swap where you only have one partner please let me know. After buying 4 items I know it will run over the $5 plus I always like to buy extra's and add postage in and doing it twice starts to add up. So if you ever do it for one partner I would love to sign up.

When you say 20 swaps in total do you mean all 3 types or just type 3?

piratecaptainmo 04/30/2013 #

20 overall, although some of them must have been type three.

Awesome! I can stay in the swap then. :) I participated in the first one and loved what I got!!

This swap sounds like great fun! I'm definitely signing up - however, if there was one thing that I would truly wish is that the gifts were definitely as profile-based as possible! I know I will give careful thought to the likes and dislike of my two partners! Can't wait!

In the first round most participants really did take profiles into account. It was very successful and oh so fun!

This is a wonderful idea that I am going to do with my husband at home.
