In an age where we communicate by using Facebook, Twitter, and email, I am sometimes afraid that the notion of sitting down and writing a letter might become obsolete. Giving a Pen Pal Kit is a great way to tell someone how much you want to stay in touch with them. Writing a letter is much more personal than just sending a quick Facebook message. Besides, getting a letter in the mail is exciting! That's why we all joined this site ... Because we love getting mail! Right? Right.

For this swap, we are going to put together a pen-pal kit for our partner!

Supplies you will need.

A bag, pouch, pencil box ( to put all our little goodies in)

We will be putting 5 different things from the list below in the our container. Please, remember that if we chose the item we are putting the number of those items in the pouch. example: if I choose notecards I will put 4 note cards in my pouch and that will count as 1 item.

4 note cards with envelopes

4 sheets of stationery

4 envelopes

2 pens (no free from bank pens)

2 pencils (no free ones)

1 sheet of stickers or 20 single stickers (if you do the single ones please make sure that you have them in there own little container)

1 pencil sharpener

1 letter opener

4 Stamps

2 mail tags (for them to write on)

4 labels (that they can use)

2 markers

2 postcards

4 washi tape samples at least 24 inches long OR one new roll

1 bookmark

1 key chain

1 tassel

4 shaped paperclips

1 bookmark

1 List pad

1 note pad

If you have more suggestions, I would love to hear them so just put them in the comments below. As well as any questions.

Let's remember to add a little piece of paper with our name and swap name on it and of course our address this is a pen pal kit and our partner just might want to write us back.

Let's have fun!

Curious if anyone signed up would be willing to private swap this swap with me. I signed up, but was removed and hostess hasn’t explained why. So in anticipation of being included I’ve been getting items gathered. I’m happy to private swap with someone since I’m not allowed to join 🤷‍♀️

Hi @ChristyClark1970

I am the hostess of this swap and I run though profiles along the way and noticed that you had 2 ones. (which were for packages) Yes, ma'am they are old and you are back and ready to make that right. I do totally understand that and if this was a letter swap I wouldn't have a problem with it but as this is a package and it will cost a little more to send and no recent ratings I'm afraid I'm going to have to say NOT THIS TIME!!!!

I am totally willing to set up a private letter swap between you and myself to get you a new rating if you wanted to do that?
