You know how I love a package swap, and I regularly participate in ones hosted over on the IGGPPC forums.
Last month’s theme was Sugar, Spice & Everything Nice and the prefects for House Organa (where us more mature Geeks hang out) came up with the idea for a sweet little swap.
The Swap Details
We were all assigned someone to secretly send a package to, there was a suggested budget of $5-10, and whilst there were some suggestions, we were left to interpret the theme as we saw fit
Sugar: Something sweet! This could be a candy, a homemade treat, dried fruit… something your partner enjoys nomming on!
Spice: Something spicy! From more food, to teas, to spicy scents… something to add a little spice to your partner’s life.
Everything Nice: Something extra special just for your swap partner. This could be something as simple as a lovely letter full of good things, or it could be you make or purchase something from their favorite fandom.
What I Sent
I was excited to find out I was sending to Susi, a fellow Scot, as we had swapped before. I really enjoyed putting together a boxful of goodies for her.
- Chai tea, spicy & sweet
- Chinese pickled mustard, spicy, plus she loves Chinese things
- A sock cake, with My Little Pony Socks, something sweet
- Scented Sugar Rush sticker book, something sugary
- Plus a little Everything nice box, full of Hello Kitty bits & bobs
I’m still not sure if she knows it was from me!!
What I Received
I was really excited when the postman handed me a parcel with the return address of Shawna, in the USA. Shawna makes and sells amazingly cute things and I’ll be honest, I secretly hoped she might have included something from her store, Hello Quirky.
Inside I found all sorts of goodies:
- Some spicy chai teabags
- A gorgeous roll of washi
- Some scented chocolate cupcake stickers
- 2 of Shawna’s postcards
- An adorable big sticker
- A really cute notebook
- 2 of Shawna’s lovely brooches
- The cutest little handmade soap
- and some delicious sounding green tea
Yep, she definitely spoiled me!! And certainly included something Sugar, Spice and Everything Nice.
As always, Thanks for stopping by xx
