This is a monthly INTERNATIONAL swap.

Here are the rules:

For this swap, you will send AT LEAST 5 goodies to your partner, in no smaller than an A5 envelope.

The idea of a blind surprise is to select and wrap each item individually BEFORE your partner is assigned. For this swap, anything goes...

BUT please only send in the condition you would like to receive.. DO NOT send any dirty or broken items. Items should be as good as new/ new.

Approximate spend: £5 / 5.91 Euros / 7.58 US dollars excluding postage.

This swap is a flake free zone. If you cannot afford to send items to this value, or you do not have the time to, please do not join.

No recent 1s or 3s. I will be checking profiles.

Only well filled out profiles. If you have an empty or brief profile, you will be removed.

Examples of goodies to send:

Small souvenirs from your country




Note cards

Fridge Magnets

Washi Tape

Sticker sheets

Postcards (4= 1 item)

...The list is endless!!

If you receive something you do not use, save it for another swap. Simple :)


I check all profiles, and remove as required immediately prior to assigning partners

sounds like fun! I have already stuffed an envelope full of goodies!!! do we wrap them as gifts or just in tissue or ???

snailmailer1 07/10/2013 #

I always wrap mine in wrapping paper. It feels more like a present to me. It's up to you though. :)

kattBrody 07/13/2013 #

Will you angel?

missysadang 07/15/2013 #

@snailmailer1 Yes, what are the dimensions of an A5 envelope? I keep running into different dimensions... :\

snailmailer1 07/17/2013 #

A5 = 210mm x 148mm. This is a guide for the minimum size to use. It past swaps of this kind, I've used larger envelopes/ boxes too.

snailmailer1 07/17/2013 #

@NorthernBorder I've angeled anyone that has been flaked in previous Blind Surprise Swaps. By tightening the criteria, I'm hoping we'll have fewer flakers. Yes, I will angel if necessary, and there are 2 others willing to angel this swap.

You're welcome to join... just make sure you have well filled out profiles before I assigned partners tomorrow :)

Is it okay to include handmade items?

snailmailer1 07/25/2013 #

Yes, providing they're of the quality you'd be happy to receive yourself :)

Just to say I'm a little delayed mailing as names weren't assigned before I went on holiday and then I ended up staying on there a couple of extra days and just got back! Ill mail shortly! :)
