Hi there! Happy Wednesday!
First of all, thank you for being here! Be sure that you enter my Mom Life Perception vs. Mom Life Reality Visa Gift Card Giveaway from my post on Monday! I have been SO excited to be sharing this post today! Second, get ready because this is such a fun topic!
WHAT IS A SWAP BOX?:
A swap box is where you and someone else go shopping for each other and fill up a box with goodies! You can pick a price limit, a theme, and a date to have the exchange mailed or given in person. My friend, Stephanie, who is also fellow YouTuber and blogger, decided a few months ago that it would be fun to do a swap box together and film ourselves opening the box to share our true first impressions! We picked a “beauty & lifestyle” theme because we both LOVE makeup, skincare, stationary, and girly goodies! We set our price limit to be $30 not counting shipping costs. We didn’t have a set date but just kept in touch about how we were doing as far as getting our boxes together.

WHY I LOVE THESE BOXES:
I think most people love snail mail, I even did a Happy Mail, post a couple months ago because I think it’s such a fun way to make someone else feel special. I love this because it’s sort of like doing a personal subscription box put together by someone who knows you! You can find groups on Facebook or other social media for snail mail or pen pals, but I haven’t ventured to that. I absolutely LOVE this and can’t wait to continue doing these with my friends.
WHERE TO FIND STEPHANIE:
Have you ever put together a box like this? If you love doing Easter Baskets or Christmas Stockings, then you’ll love this! Boxes of pretty little goodies are THE BEST!! : D We still have snow on the ground here, but it should be gone by this weekend as warmer weather rolls in!! Have a wonderful weekend!
