About Me

Hi there!

My name is Elina and I live in a small country near Baltic sea - in Latvia.

I love to receive snail mail and parcels, so joining on a swap bot is a great opportunity to do it and even make happy someone else by sending mail!

Looking for postcards with Robbie Williams (from UK swappers)!


This is a place where I live - Riga, a capital city of Latvia.

I always send my swaps!!!
That's why I'm here. I always do my best to make happy my swap partner and try to send some nice and interesting items.

Please do not make your swap as a way to get rid of items you have received in other swaps and don't have use for it. Sometimes i receive things that should be only in a trash bin or are absolutely useless (like companies promotional items, items for kids, ugly stickers).

If the worst happen and you don't receive a swap, please contact me before leaving me a 1 rating (it takes a long time to deliver to these countries - Canada, China, Russia, Taiwan (~20-30 days), to Mexico it can take up to 3 months)! I will send you another mail if necessary.

Things on my list

Mostly I'm in food and cosmetic swaps - I like to try new things aren't available in my country. I don't collect anything therefore I don't like things just lay on my shelf without a practical use.



  • All kind of edibles (salt or sweet) - sweets, snacks, potato chips, nuts, cookies, chocolate, gummy candies, macaroons, dried fruits, drinks, waffles, etc. - anything you can buy in store, pack and send! And I'm the one who doesn't mind marzipan sweets (I know a lot does);
  • 3in1 coffee;
  • Hot chocolate;
  • Perfect fit protein by Tone it up girls;
  • Eco, organic products (but not necessarily);
  • Crabtree & Evelyn biscuits, tea etc.;
  • Products from Whittard (tea, hot chocolate, equipment, tableware etc.)

Please try to find edibles with less artificial additives (if possible).


Kitchen & baking

  • Seasoning;
  • Baking & cake mixes;
  • Food products I can use to prepare my meal - e.g. lasagna plates, breakfast flakes/ muesli, peanut butter, maple syrup, jam/ marmalade, sauce/ dressing, etc. from your country - anything you can buy in store, pack and send!
  • And other interesting and beautiful cool things for kitchen&baking&celebration.


  • All kind of cosmetics (make-up, nail polish, hair products, bath & body products, self tan etc.). I have oily/ combination skin, light skin tone;
  • Tone it up girls accessories;
  • Love all about Victoria's secret (make-up, body lotions, sprays and perfume, accessories);
  • Scent: fresh, fruity, light sweet, vanilla;
  • Vanilla fragrance;
  • Earrings, bracelets etc. (please no cheap ones that looks tasteless or inappropriate for my age);
  • Eco, organic products (but not necessarily);
  • Soaps;
  • Something I can use in my jewelry making projects (charms, beads, earwires etc.);
  • And other interesting and cool goods from your country you want to send me!



  • Hard candies, lollipops, bon-bons;
  • Dark chocolate;
  • Flavors: for gummies: lemon, lime, orange, cola, very synthetic, artificial taste; all other edibles: mint, coffee, cappuccino, latte, mocha, alcohol, anise, liquorice, very synthetic, artificial taste;
  • Scent - rose, sandalwood or strong, specific;
  • Teas - jasmine, pure fruit tea, chamomile, peppermint/ mint, linden, hibiscus;
  • Olive;
  • Please no blank postcards of your city etc.;
  • Please no shower gel, I prefer soaps;
  • Anything handmade (unless you are great at it);
  • Please no pens, pencils, paper, envelope, note cards etc. - all kind of stationery. I don't have use for them.
  • No childish items or made for kids.


Music, books and movies, TV

I can listen to different kind of music but mostly I like pop.

My favorite books are about Latvian farmers life in 17-19th century and some bestsellers.

My all time favorite movies are:

  • The Fifth element;

  • The Mummy (1 and 2);

  • Harry Potter.

I don't watch TV a lot but I like movies and Netflix.


I like to make jewelry in my free time. I have my Etsy store too: Kanelli Accessories

The almond butter cookies were my favorite!!! Amazing. I would love to do a strictly snack swap with you sometime! I would love more of those almond cookies, man they were delish. It's killing me to leave some for the hubby to try lol, they may not make it till he gets home. Hehe.
