This swap series also has specific requirements. Please only sign up if you intend to follow them. 5.00 Rating (see full details at bottom). Thank you!




Grab the party hats, breakout the champagne, and get ready to celebrate. That's right, Zelda is having one of those big old milestone birthdays on August 3rd (shhhhh ~ it's 50). But instead of crying "How the hell did this... happen???!!!" I'm going do some premium swapping events with all of you fabulous people. We could all use some Joy, Cheer and Happiness so why not join me for the 6th installment of "Happiness In A Box! Swap. There's a party going on and you're invited.



Little Zelda on 4th birthday with mom, Rosemary. Yes, I am Rosemary's Baby. Muwahahaha!!!


Swap Details and Requirements

For this swap you will send 1 person a box full of items to create instant "Happiness". 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 just be... happy.

  • 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/envelope if it works better for you but it should be able to hold at least as much as the minimum sized box.

  • Minimum $$ - This swap has a $30 minimum for a spending amount NOT including shipping or items you already have. This means you need to be spending at least $30 on items for this swap. (This swap is for July and August together.)

  • What to Send - Please make sure to follow these requirements.

    • Profile Based - All of the items you send should be profile based. This swap is all about sending things that will make your partner happy. This means you may need to shop at multiple stores or spend time finding things online. Please make sure to stick to their likes and dislikes. If you are having trouble you can always reach out to your partner and ask questions. Make sure to also fill your profile out fully. Give your partner lots of ideas!

    • Handmade - For just this round you will be adding something handmade by you! Show off your crafty skills, whatever they may be. This item is pretty much up to you BUT you still want to keep your partner's profile in mind. This needs to be something you spend time on and do to the very best of your ability. Everyone has different levels of experience and that is just fine.

      Example - Things like folding a piece of paper in half and calling it a pocket, putting a sticker on something, or cutting something out of a magazine... these are not handmade items. There are lots of tutorials online for paper crafting or many other types of crafting. Be creative and put some effort into whatever you choose to make.

    • Card with a Letter - Store bought or very nicely handmade card (no postcards/flat cards) with a letter. Take the time to talk to your partner. Maybe tell them why you chose the items you sent, talk about any common interests you have or anything else you like. The letter does not have to be real long but it should be at least a paragraph or two.

    • New or Like New - You should be purchasing new items for this swap! You may also purchase second hand items, or include items you already have, as long as they are very gently used or like new condition. Remember - items you already have do not count towards the $30 minimum.

    • 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.

    • Wrap Gifts - Because it's a birthday celebration wrap your gifts festively. It doesn't have to be birthday wrap. Just something fun. This is a requirement for this round.

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

    • This is NOT a swap to send whatever you like. You are sending what your partner likes.




  • Ideas - You want to send your partner a box full of fun. 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 new one to enjoy.

    • Snack - Everyone loves snacks! Make sure to respect your partner's needs when it comes to food and drink.

    • 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.




The Fine Print

  • This swap is for 5.00 ratings only. I also understand that sometimes there might be 1 rating that throws off an otherwise stellar rating. Message me if you want to be considered. If I don't receive a message first you will be banned if you signup with a rating lower than 5.00.

  • This is a profile based swap. Each person should make sure their profile is well filled out with ideas. The more info you give the better chance your partner has to send you something you'll enjoy. If I feel your profile is not filed out enough I will message you about it.

  • No current late swaps.

  • You must have completed at least 10 swaps that are category 3.

  • You must have signed on to Swap-Bot within 4 days before partners are assigned.

  • Make sure to add the name of the swap and your username somewhere in your swap.

  • I reserve the right to ban anyone that I deem necessary.

  • Only sign up if you have the time, the money and are willing to follow requirements and ship on time.

  • I will angel if needed. Please contact your partner first and try to work things out. Be kind. Be patient. Be understanding. If you cannot work things out, and you have rated your partner a 1, then message me.




If you have a question about this swap please send me a message as I don't always remember to check for comments.
