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

Can the items be hand made ie; note cards/greeting cards, book marks, sticky note holders/etc>,.?

snailmailer1 03/15/2014 #

Yes, but try to include no more than 2 handmade items.

Caution...the last time I mailed $7 worth of a blind surprise it cost me $15 in postage and was never delivered, so I earned a "1" Think about postage cost. It has gone up considerably for international packages.

The cost of ( international ) postage varies between countries.

I love the idea of this swap, just wish it could have been US only.

snailmailer1 03/20/2014 #

I don't live in USA. There are way too many US swaps available. I want it to remain international.

being a newbie from Belfast ( N Ireland) I am thrilled it is international. I have shopped and have some fun things for my partner. I have tried to keep the items small/ light as intl postage can be extortionate- but a small price for such JOY!!

I'm in the USA & I'm thrilled to be taking part in this fun swap. I can get items from here any day. I love getting international happy mail (most of the time just their postage stamps makes me very happy). Can't wait for this swap : ) THANKS

Super excited about this swap! :) Im new to this and absolutely thrilled to have found a site that does this..I have all my lil goodies chosen and wrapped up and waiting for an adress to send them to :) YAY :)

I love this swap! I joined it last month for the first time and am excited to do it again. I'm also glad it's international! I"m in the US and last time the computer assigned me to another US address, so this time I'm keeping my fingers crossed for an international address. Yeah, the postage is a bit expensive, but it's so worth it to send someone a smile wrapped in pretty paper! :)

Just checking profiles. Partners will be assigned shortly.

What a coincidence!

snailmailer1 03/25/2014 #


RareBlue 03/25/2014 #

Sent. Cost me nearly $19 in international postage if I wanted to there in under 6 weeks. Crazy!

RareBlue 03/25/2014 #

Augh, typos. If I wanted it to be there*

lehappyvirus 03/25/2014 #

does the "sent by" mean we have to get this to the post office at the latest by then?

snailmailer1 03/26/2014 #

Yes it does @lehappyvirus

@RateBLue postage isn't cheap unfortunately :(
