THIS IS AN INTERNATIONAL SWAP. If postage cost might be an issue for you simply don't sign up.
Ayii and I talked about this one together early in the summer. Wouldn't it be nice to get a surprise package just in time for Soltice?
You will send your 1 partner a standard (10oz/295ml approx.) COFFEE MUG (thrift store find, handmade, plastic will cut down on the postage!) filled/stuffed to overflowing. Fill the mug with whatever makes you smile, trying to limit your TOTAL cost to about $12US, mug included!
Fill/stuff the mug with all sorts of Winter Soltice-y Goodness. (What would make you smile one day in December?)
Please ensure the mug is food safe (microwave safe is nice, but not essential) and that you wrap the finished filled mug in pretty plastic wrap/shrink wrap. Mail it in bubble wrap to keep the handle safe.
Filling Ideas: tiny, wrapped "package(s)" complete with a bow, holiday notecards, a bit-o'bubble bath (drop-in ball, fizzy tablet, or small packet), a tiny "cup coaster" for the mug to sit on, handmade 'fridge magnet, hot soup packet, pkg of hot cocoa mix, some peppermint drops, an individual coffee or tea packet (check their profile!), a holiday or adorable swizzle stick, a candy-dipper spoon (dipped in chocolate or other confection to melt when stirred), Solstice greetings, "snow" confetti, etc. etc. etc.
Check postal/customs requirements carefully to ensure your recipient gets their surprise. Helpful URLs for USPS and Int'l mailing restrictions are listed in the comments below.
I will not "angel" for this swap.
Swappers with less than 3.50 rating or recent No-Sends will be dropped. Newbies with solid profiles are welcome, but Private Message (PM) me or email me after you sign up...just to touch base.
