This swap is for those who want to swap some self-care related goodies! Each participant gets one (1) partner to who they make a little self-care kit. There are some ideas below about what you may include, but the total value of the kit has to be at least 10 dollars (without the postage costs).

You may include:

  • a face mask
  • tea or other hot beverages
  • chocolate or sweets
  • a small notebook / journal or journaling supplies
  • a list of self-care or stress-relief tips
  • something handmade (a bookmark, a zine, a flipbook etc.)
  • fuzzy socks
  • a postcard with a sweet message
  • art made by you, quotes or poems
  • anything else you can think of

ALSO INCLUDE A LETTER or at least a short note. You could share your favourite ways of self-care, any tips you have or write about anything else, it's up to you.

Play nice, make a kit that you would like to receive. You can start to prepare before the partners are assigned but it's nice to take a look at your partner's profile to see their likes and dislikes.

Note that this is an international swap, the postage costs can be pricy. Please don't flake, nobody wants to be let down. Ask me anything, I'm more than willing to help!

I wanted to make this swap allowed to unrated swappers too, but if you are a newbie, your profile has to be WELL FILLED, meaning I should be able to scroll it down. Maybe write an extra chapter about your favourite ways to practice self-care! No recent unexplained 3s or 1s

This is such a lovely idea for a swap!!! Can’t wait to join!!!

Will you be hosting another swap like this in the future? It looks really cool! But unfortunately, I don’t have the means ($$$) to do a swap like this at the moment.

Elsi 09/ 4/2019 #

@MissPlay Yeah I can host this swap again some time in the future! It's not my original idea, so I don't mind if someone else wants to host something similar too!

I would definitely join if the swap weren't international. I feel bad for those non-usa people out there but I don't really have the cash to send packages to other countries. Letters for sure though! If anybody knows of something like this that is regional, let me know.

Elsi 09/ 8/2019 #

@overbernt I haven't seen anything similar recently in the regional category. I myself live in Europe so hosting a USA-only version isn't an option for me. Feel free to host your own tho!

Checking one's partner's profile is always a good idea ofcourse, but ultimately this is sender's choice, right?

Elsi 09/ 9/2019 #

@marliese Yes, that's right.
