Let's go shopping together! What's your favorite kind of shopping? Clothing? Paper goodies? Home decor? Grocery shopping? I think I'll go with paper goodies, what about you?

For this swap, you'll have one partner to whom you'll be sending the following:

  • A letter sharing about your shopping trip. You can write about the places you went to, the things you needed/wanted to buy (maybe some items for a few upcoming swaps? or some summer/winter shopping?), the things you got, etc. Remember your partner might not be familiar with your country' stores or local stores so it would be nice to tell them about what kind of stores you visited. If you have a favorite place to make a stop for tea/coffee before keep on shopping, you can feel free to share that too.

  • Your shopping list (try to use a cute notepad/paper, or decorate one with washi tape, stickers, whatever you want).

  • Some store brochures/business cards. Some of the stores we visit might have business cards or brochures, take some and share them with your partner. If you can't find any, then try to add a few pictures or printouts from the stores you visited. This is optional, but would be nice if you could add something from some of the stores you visited. Some ephemera (bus/subway tickets, vouchers, etc) works too.

  • A flat surprise for your partner. Something you bought for them on that same shopping trip, some ideas: a postcard, a sheet of stickers, a tea bag, ephemera, etc. This is sender's choice but try to check your partner's profile for any strong dislikes or allergies.

This swap should be fairly simple to complete and affordable to send, I'm giving you plenty of time to work on it.

Remember to add a note with your username and swap name so your partner can rate you. You can decorate your envelope with a shopping theme if you'd like, this is optional.

Please rate your partner promptly and if there's any issues with your outgoing/incoming mail, get in touch with your partner (and me if needed). Remember communication is key.

And if you have any doubts please don't hesitate to contact me or add a comment below.

Happy swapping everyone!

Would a grocery store count, too? During swap period, I will visit my home country, and there are foods/brands of food that are not made/sold in Latvia that I always tend to buy on my way back home.

Yes of course! Whatever kind of shopping you need/want to do :) As long as you explain a bit about the items you’re choosing (in case they’re not popular in other cultures) it’s totally fine!
