February Friendship gift exchange

Let's beat the winter blues and make new friends!

The rules are simple: fill a box with treats and special things. Mail it to your partner. Receive one in return from a new friend. (I'm thinking a small box, like a 5x5 mug size, or the Priority Mail "VHS tape" box, to keep postage reasonable)

To participate, I need your name and mailing address. Please let me know if you would be willing to ship to a different country. Please include a short list of things you like, favorite scents or colors, and any allergies your partner might need to be aware of. For example, I like cats, fruit scents and dark chocolate.

I will leave sign-up open for 1 week, until Jan 26. I will assign partners. After that you have until Feb 21 to get your package mailed out.

Sound like fun?

I hope you all have lovely surprises when you open your packages. I'm sorry that, living in the UK, I didn't feel able to participate as it sounds like a great idea.

Oh! I missed out! That's what I get for cleaning instead of lurking....lol! Hopefully another swap is around the corner, and count me in for looking forward to hearing about everyone's goodies. Sounds like a ton of fun!

Hoping I can convince the hubby to send mine out on his way to work this morning. If not, I'll mail it this afternoon. :)
