    book swap would be wonderful but I would have the same issue as Lady B (I can never give a book away)

    Seeds would be great but cant be sent to Tassie or W.A from other states.

    Love the face washer idea but could be difficult for some so maybe incorporate it into a home made swap -that would have to have been my favourite over the last couple of years.

    maybe a bath set swap consisting of 2 facecloths,soap sack and facial cleansing pads

    also a kitchen swap consisting of teatowels,potholders and dishcloths

    everyone uses these

    how about a soft toy, either knitted or sewn or even made of wood so doc doesn’t feel left out.

    I think the handmade swap went extremely well last time. 😀 Was an awesome thing to do, and I enjoyed doing it! 😀

    What about a “colour” swap? perhaps something of a particular colour that we all like and leave it open to the amount of around $5 like we did the Op Shop Swap, so that it could be something either handmade or bought? Something entirely different, but using colour as the main focus instead? (OK…just a random suggestion on my part. LOL ) :blush:

    Luvin – you’re not weird. I like your idea of a mums or dads swap. It leaves it a bit open…. 🙂

    I love the idea for a ladies/mama swap. Things like cloth menstrual pads, breast pads (for breastfeeding mamas), anything parenting related such as books on gentle parenting etc. I’m sure I’ll think of more!
