We are getting some great ideas! Thanks ladies and keep them coming. I plan on setting up and posting a list of month by month swaps so that we will know which ones are coming up and will be able to keep an eye out for items we would like to swap. :)

Here are a few more ideas...
~cookbooks, especially regional type ones that are done by local organizations that are specific to your area of the country
~cookie cutters
~kitchen gadgets
~aprons
~stationary and nice pen

Just a heads up now...the swap for July will be a "Christmas in July" swap and we will be swapping any Christmas related item, it could be an ornament or a holiday tea towel or anything as long as it pertains to the holiday and cost $10 or less.

Thanks for letting us know about the Christmas in July swap. We should be able to pick up some after Christmas sale items.
This may sound like a strange one, but how about a panty swap. Wouldn't cost much in postage to send those and I could use some. LOL!
Or book marks?

Thought of some more. LOL!

How about a "Girly" swap? You know something lacey, pink, fuzzy, furry...

Or just a Total Surprise Swap? You could get ideas about the person you are swapping with from reading their posts.

How about a stress reliever swap that would help relieve the stress from the holidays. *"Now that Christmas is over, take time to relax and pamper yourself."

*New calendars for the new year.

Great ideas ladies. Keep them coming...we have an entire year to plan for :). I will try to get the swap schedule for the year out close to Christmas so that if you come across some great after Christmas sales you will know what we are swapping ahead of time. :)

We did this one a few years ago and I really liked it.... a local swap. A couple of local items so that you can take a pretend vacation to visit your swap partner's town. We kept it at a $10 limit before- I wouldn't want to go much higher than that.

My big idea for the coming year? How about a Christmas Ornament swap? They can be homemade or purchased, but I love to get new ornaments as gifts.

~tea towel
~pot holder
~candle
~photo frame
~key chain
~book
~a local stamp
~a photo of a local monument
