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 (6x9) 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.

@snailmailer1 I was in the first October 5 swap (it was awesome by the way, my partner was a 5HEART! Thank You!) and I signed up for this one, is that okay? My computer said that I was already signed up, so I couldn't sign up for this one, and then it shows in my list. I am just curious if it's okay for me to join?

@AmyCeltic - sure you can join. Not sure why it isn't letting you. Unless you have too many swaps already signed up for as a newbie. I think 5 is the maximum for new members.

Are handmade items okay? I have some charms that I'm thinking about sending, I just wanted to make sure it was alright to send them. :)

I am new, only signed up for one swap so far and have not done it yet. Can I join this one??

Do you have to send each item in individual envelopes? I imagine with wrapping each item it can turn bulky

snailmailer1 10/19/2013 #

@notesograceful - a combination of handmade and store bought is fine :)

@rhdh05 - new members with well-filled out profiles are welcome to join :)

@bebeboo - Yes please, individually wrapped. I tend to use wrapping paper as opposed to envelopes :)
