I had a lot of requests for my first "Package of Surprises" swap to be US only- So here it is! I did make a few small changes though, so make sure to read through it again, if you already saw the first one! :)

For this swap you will send your partner a package (can be an envelope or a box) of at least 5 profile-based surprises! A little extra is always nice though. You must wrap each item individually, with either wrapping paper, tissue paper, newspaper, or something of the sort. It's always nice to open a gift! :)

Some ideas of what to send include but are not limited to: stickers, postcards, notecards, stamps, candy, tea, nice pens, smashbook supplies, sticky notes, washi tape, etc. Please check your partners profile, and really try to find things they would love! Also please only send things you would like to receive- nothing dirty or broken.

Newbies with a well filled out profile are welcome, but no one with a rating lower than a 4.95 will be allowed to join. I will angel if necessary, but I assume that won't be necessary, right?!

Have fun! :)

Woo hoo thanks not that I wouldn't love getting something from overseas but I just would rather put the money into a little gifts then postage...

thenderson756 05/15/2014 #

@fireyvalkyrie I definitely understand! Thanks for joining! :)

Wish I could join, hope you do another one in a few months. I have been under doctors care since I was in the hospital back in January! Been keeping my swapping habits low because of it.

So wrapping is required?

thenderson756 05/15/2014 #

@zoebolt yes it's required for this one!

Have the partners been assigned I cannot wait! 👍💕😊

thenderson756 05/20/2014 #

@leistessa Not yet! They will be assigned May 31st! :)

Do the items have to be bought? I kinda hope not...I like receiving made items! :) Similarly, can we send things that we have that we think the recipient would like (with the understood caveat that they are in good shape/usable/etc)? F'r example, I think a neat idea for one of the gifts is to put together an ephemera packet of things the recipient would like getting, but I already have here...or a nice sample of some kawaii stickers. (And no, I would not count just 15 or so flakes as one of the gifts, that would be, uhm, flaky! giggle! But hopefully you understand the question!) :)

thenderson756 05/21/2014 #

@plushiecat no, they don't all have to be store bought, but it would be nice for a few of them to be. And putting together a package of ephemera, for example, would be fine as long as it is something your partner is interested in! :)

What happens if your swapper doesn't have a good list of needs or wants?

thenderson756 05/28/2014 #

@ladydy5 I will contact everyone who doesn't have a well filled out profile, and if they haven't added more info by the time I assign partners, I will ban them.

I'll do my best to pick things I think my partner will like. However in looking at some of the newer swappers profiles it may hard to tell what they might like. Wish lists are helpful. ; )

thenderson756 05/30/2014 #

@starhiker I banned everyone that I felt had a poorly filled out profile, so you shouldn't have any problems now! :)
