I love the excitement of receiving a cute little envelope and having no idea what kind of randomness could posisbly be tucked inside.

So, I decided to make a swap called 'Four Flat Favourites'

what does that mean?

for this swap we have ONE partner that we're going to send FOUR of our favourite types of flat things to.

what are some things in your everyday life that you're always happy to have/use? Send a new/unopened one to your partner!

to clarify, that's four different types of items... don't be boring and just send 4 unscented wet naps to someone...

Also include a note or letter outlining who you are, the name of the swap, what each item is, and it's why it's your favourite.

This is supposed to be a fun challenge!!

  • to get us senders thinking creatively
  • to give a completely exciting and random thing for us receivers to open
  • it should be relatively inexpensive in terms of cost and postage....if they're really your favourites, you probably already buy them in bulk or have a ton of new ones stashed away somewhere.

this swap is for persons with a well filled-out profile, a minimum rating of 4.95, a minimum of three ratings, and no recent/unexplained 3s or 1s. I'll be checking profiles and if you dont meet the requirements or I think you might flake, you're out. Sorry!

It is sender's choice, but you might want to check your partner's profile so you don't send four things they clearly dislike.

here are some ideas:

  • tea/hot drinks (your favourite kind)
  • gum (your favourite flavour)
  • decorative post-it notes (the ones you always use)
  • bandages with a cool/pretty pattern (no boring beige ones!)
  • card with your favourite recipe on it (macaroni and cheese, right?)
  • car air freshener (just make sure you don't send this with food items, haha)
  • snacks/candy (sunflower seeds, those dried fruit bars)
  • bookmark (favourite colour/style)
  • cute socks (who doesn't love cute socks?
  • (flat) jewelry (depending on your partner)
  • handkerchief/bandana/pocket square (an underrated accessory, in my opinion!)
  • letter opener (relevant to our interests!)
  • those ultra soft cloths you clean your glasses with (aren't they great?)

I gave over two weeks between sign up and send for you to think/discover/collect. Let's be thoughtful!

Because this is an international swap, please be mindful that we are sending out packages internationally and right at the beginning of increased volumes due to the holiday season in many countries. Please take the time to communicate with your partner first if you're thinking of giving a 1 or a 3.
