Valentine's Day in a Box Swap

Could you use a little extra joy in your life? I think we all could this year! Let's make Valentine's Day a little more fun by sending a box of holiday cheer. Sound intriguing? Then read on!


Swap Details

For this swap you will send 1 person a box full of items to create an instant Valentine's Day. Think of it as one of those "Of the Month" or "Cratejoy" styled boxes that are curated to a certain theme. This will be a box with items specially chosen for your partner to help them celebrate Valentine's Day.

  • Box Size - The minimum size of box you should use is a small flat rate priority box. This is the minimum! You are highly encouraged to go bigger. You should fill your box as much as possible. You may also use a mailer if it works better for you but it should be able to hold at least as much as the minimum sized box.

  • What to Send - It's up to you what you include in the box but it should follow these requirements.

    • Valentine's Day Themed Card - This must be included. Store bought or very nicely handmade card (no postcards/flat cards). Make sure to write a little something in the card to your partner. Tell them why you chose the items you sent. Take the time to talk to them a bit.

    • Profile Based - Items should be profile based. You want them to be things that will make your partner happy.

    • New or Like New - Items should be New or Like New. You may send items you already have but you should also be purchasing items for this swap.

    • Minimum of 5 Different Types - You should include a minimum of 5 different types of items in your box. For example - 3 Washi Tapes and 2 Snacks only count as 2 types.

    • Suggested Minimum - This swap has a suggested $15 minimum for a spending amount NOT including shipping.

    • Not all items have to be Valentine's Day themed. Your items should be things to help your partner have a fun Valentine's Day.

    • Wrap your gifts festively. Decorate the outside of the box. This is completely optional but highly recommended.

    • This is NOT a swap to get rid of a bunch for random stuff you do not want anymore.

    Ideas - You want to send your partner a box full of fun they can enjoy for the Valentine's Day Weekend (or whenever they choose). Take a careful look at your partner's profile and try to chose things you think they will like. Here are some ideas...

    • Book - Do they like to read? Give them a new book to curl up with.

    • Movie - Are they a movie lover? Maybe a love story to give them a good cry.

    • Snack - What's Valentine's Day without some chocolate? Make sure to respect your partner's needs when it comes to food.

    • Drink - Tea, coffee or maybe some cocoa.

    • Game - Does your partner love a good game? Think jigsaw puzzle, card game, crossword puzzle book, logic puzzle book, escape room game/book, etc. There are so many ideas in this group.

    • Adult Coloring - Maybe they enjoy relaxing to some coloring. A book themed in something they enjoy might be a fun surprise.

    • Yarn - If they are a crocheter or knitter you can never go wrong with yarn!

    • Paper Crafting Supplies - Is your partner crafty with paper? Then maybe some new supplies would put a smile on their face. Pretty papers, colorful pens or a roll of washi tape.

    • Or anything else you think they might like. Be creative and really try to come up with something fun.
