They already do Disney exchanges, but you can never have to much Disney. :teeth:

We did cookies once, but you could do them again and see who will play.

Your favorite cookies


Also in the locally made exchange that mommytotwo hosted, some people send food that is made in their area or state. In one of her exchanges I sent 5 boxes of TastyKake Cupcakes as they are made in Pa.

How about a tourism exchange? We could exchange brochures, pamphlets, maps etc... and it wouldn't cost anyone anything except postage. It could be any kind of thing from museums, zoos to local event guides.

School stuff would be cool too.

Let's do it! So, how do you decide on who's running it? :earboy2:

How about children? Can you tell it has been a rough day here with my little one? Naah, I am kidding! I wouldn't trade my little Tinkerbell for anything.

I loved the colors that was always a lot of fun and left things wide open as far as what you could get. Also, I loved getting younger girls since I can make bows and that was always a good fall back for colors if the child was young enough. Hehehe.

Let's see....I am not good at these ideas.

Gift cards? $10.00 - $15.00 limit from the senders choice of places? I guess people would have to be pretty generic to make sure that they reciever was able to use it in theor own town. That could also be fun with restaurants. You'd just have to make sure there was one of those restaurants in their town.

Well, that about does it for my not-so-brilliant ideas.

How about a handmade exchange (not like the scrapbook swaps)?

barkley
08-01-2006, 07:00 AM
i too like food items-esp. ones that are regional in nature. how about spices, marinades, dip mixes and the like that are from your area (as an example we live near napa and there are tons of wine based marinades, mustards, spices/dip mixes with local plants).

might be nice to do in time for using them for holiday parties and the like.

you might even be able to enhance it by having the sender advise the recipient how they use the product in a not so obvious way (we have a local dip mix that we use in our bread machine to make herb bread-realy yummy but no indication on the packaging it can be used for that purpose).

I didn't read through this whole thread, so I don't know if it was mentioned or done yet, but I'd like to see a Hair produces exchange.

I have 3 grand daughters all who have long hair. They spend the night at our house and I'm always looking for hair ties, clips, barrettes, headbands etc. to do their hair with. I'd be in for all 3 girls.

DisneyCP2002 and I are trying to get the alphabet/color exchange up and running. We're going to do each letter, and it will also encompass colors. For instance, "B" is going to be blue. She plans to start the letter "A" in midAugust. Afterwards, I will start sign-ups for blue. Everyone, please keep an eye out for sign-ups and come join us. If anyone is interested in hosting, pm me!

Sorry to barge in here. My DD wants me to pass along an idea for an exchange. Is anyone interested in getting the kids involved in an exchange?

I had a 7 year old DD and a 6 year old DS. They were really curious about an exchange I was doing for the Ladies Only trip and want to give it a try. It might be hard to match up with all the different ages but it would be lots of fun.
Maybe make up a questionaire that the kids have to answer and then the other child can do shopping based on that or we could go with a theme :confused3

What do you think?

I have hosted a bunch of kids only exchanges ranging from-bathtime fun, outside fun, book exchange-which we are now exchanging, and a bunch of other ones. Also, kids are welcome to join in on most of the adult exchanges. Ex. I have the Halloween exchange going on now...where you would either exchange with an adult or child, but if you put in a request to buy from a child, or to recieve from a child, that can also be done. I will also have the Christmas present and Christmas stocking exchange coming up in Nov. and there are usually a bunch of children that participate in that one as well. There is now the sticker/sticker book exchange if your daughter is interested in that.

I've only done a couple of exchanges, and not recently but really love them!

A few ideas for ones that would be fun:

Rubber duckies (there are so many different ones now)
Hot Wheels/Matchbox/Disney Racer cars (for little boys or big!)
Disney antenna toppers (love these!)
Slippers (good for the cold weather!)
Lip gloss/chapstick
Cake mix and "doctoring ingredients" (from the Cake Doctor cookbook)
Aprons (I just love aprons, but not sure if anyone else does!)
Gum/Candy (my daughter just loved this last time)
Hat/Scarf/Mittens (homemade or store bought)
Favorite afterschool snack recipe and ingredients
Sunglasses

My daughter came up with a fun idea too...not sure how it would work but maybe someone more experienced would have a good idea. Her girl scout troop had a teddy bear that each girl got to take home for a week. They each took did stuff with the teddy and took pictures and added them to Teddy's scrapbook and passed it on to the next girl. She thought that it would be fun to have a tee shirt that could be sent to young girls. They could wear it on their trip to Disney, take a picture of them wearing it and add it to the scrapbook, wash it and then sign it and send it on to the next girl. I really liked the idea of this tee shirt getting to go to Disney over and over on different girls vacations. The tee shirt would eventually be covered in girls signatures and the date they wore it to Disney and there would be a scrapbook with everyone's memories of their day with the tee shirt at Disney.

I don't know if anyone else would like this idea, but here goes. hehe

How about a OOAK Barbie exchange? (One of a kind... for non-doll collectors ;))

We do this on a Barbie board I belong to, and I think girls would like it.

Here's what we do:

You ask the girls eye and hair color, and their fave color (for clothing
You buy a doll with similar hair color , you buy an outfit (or make an outfit, if you're more talented than I ;)) that has the girls fave color on it, you box it back up and send it (usually with extras).

Does anyone do a favorite book exchange? I am such a reader, I would love that one.
Or a calendar exchange?

Meriweather
10-04-2006, 09:10 AM
We have done colors....and I think the alphabet that is goind now will include colors when a letter comes up that works.

We have done calendars for the last ....hmmmm.....4 years. Not sure if anyone is planning on hosting it this year.

We did do favorite book once also. That was fun. It was in the string called "My favorites". Book was in there as was author. :)

Ready to go in Ok

You are always welcome to do things over.
Not sure if anyone is hosting the calendar one this year. If you are interested, PM me and I will ask the past hosts of this one (we have had several).
Things are redone all the time.....just make sure that it isn't another host's "special" one ;)

How about an exchange of last years/this years unused holiday cards. I am just wrapping my presents and getting my cards together to be mailed and I noticed that I have 4-5 of each card that I have sent out previously left over. I would hate to send the same card to the same person this year that I did last year. SO, maybe exchange all of the unused cards that way everyone has new cards for next year and won't have to buy them/wait for sales and won't send the same as last year, does that make any sense? :confused3

the past few years I have sent my unused/unwanted cards to my friends in Iraq, so that they could send Holiday wishes home to their friends and family (I don't suppose they get blank cards over there.).

Oh well, just a thought.
