This is a monthly INTERNATIONAL swap. I am regularly asked if this swap can be made USA only. My answer is always no. There are an abundance of US only swaps out there. Please join those if you aren't happy with international shipping.

NB I cannot angel this swap this month.

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

How will I get my partners address to send my swap to

snailmailer1 06/19/2015 #

I will assign partners the day after the swap cloeses. You'll find the address at the top right side of the page under Swap Members Options.

Hi I m new and would like to join the swap.. Not sure if my profile is detailed enough yet....

evemak951 06/20/2015 #

sorry questions...so i need to wrap each item "individually" then put into a a5 package? so 5 wrapped gift in one parcel correct?.?

Niobe 06/21/2015 #

Last time I participated in a similar swap I didin't get anything because a new swap member that participated in the same swap and was randomly picked for me didin't send me anything. This swap I see is also full of newbies. No offence but please respect your swap partners and the host and send your gifts. If you think you won't be able to do that better drop out now. Just saying.

snailmailer1 06/21/2015 #

That's correct evemak951

snailmailer1 06/21/2015 #

@Niobe - while you're shouting your mouth off, please consider the following : this swap has been successfully hosted and undertaken since April 2013; long before you arrived at Swap-bot. If it weren't for swap hosts like me giving newbies like YOU a chance, you wouldn't have the opportunity to improve your ratings. Also, if you wish to comment about something, please at least take the time to read the swap description before committing to your statement. I check all profiles immediately before to assigning partners. Therefore, those signed up aren't necessarily staying in the swap unless I I am happy.

Thanks for having a newbie-friendly swap (it's really hard to find swaps that will let us in)! I participated in last month's swap and loved it! <3

@Niobe I understand and sympathize with your disappointment of being flaked on. But please do not judge every newbie based on one bad experience. I am a newbie, but I will not flake on anyone, and I put a lot of time and effort into the gifts I send.

Johnnie 06/23/2015 #

I am a newbie and I do not flake!!! thanks for letting me join!!!!

evemak951 06/23/2015 #

SpicyJordan 06/23/2015 #

snailmailer1 06/26/2015 #

Remember everyone, the deadline for posting your package is 30th June. If you are going to be late for any reason, please contact both myself and your partner.

Johnnie 07/ 8/2015 #

it is a blind surprise swap meaning I pick what I sent, i also took pictures at my local post office before sealing the envelope, lots of waishi and many other things so tired of these greedy crooks looking for more than they are entitled too, again in about month look for my newspaper article from a famous newspaper and sonja you should be ashamed of yourself I sent you much more then the swap called for, it you do not like the items do not participate in a blind swap it is senders choice,

Johnnie 07/ 8/2015 #
