Care Share 2018 !!

Off topic

bit late in the day, but should we also pm starfo with some likes/dislikes that he could forward to interested parties? Might make things easier because I bet some people are probably struggling a bit. Or could link pintrests or amazon wishlists or whatever?

I have a pintrest http://www.pinterest.com/belabart/clothes/ and a http://dressed.so/user/view/belabartok and obvo post fits on here too, but some ppl who don't post much maybe could put something out there? Maybe?

Maybe if you're having trouble have starfox pm your person to ask about likes/dislikes/dietary restrictions?

Also, is this is a gift swap between two people, or more of a conga line thing. That was never clear to me.

i dunno i feel like people should be able to get a good idea of their match's personality/interests by reading through their comments, no? and if that person hasn't made a lot of comments then they shouldn't be too upset that they get a less personalised package. If people are sending each other amazon wishlists and what-have-you that removes a lot of the fun imo. Anyone worrying that their gift won't be up to calibre shouldn't do so, because as far as i can tell you're all kind and generous and thoughtful, and whatever you come up with will be very exciting for and much appreciated by your partner

pretty sure it's a conga line dwindles

I agree with you Germs. An Amazon wishlist is prolly too far. But I think something vaguely useful like a pintrest or a fit archive might not go amiss for some people. I think maybe leave it to the gift receivers to decide what they want to put out there but narrowing stuff down too much should rightly be considered In Poor Taste.

if you want me to ask your person for some help or whatever, that's fine, but i also feel like it is a little late in the game to be doing that. but i agree with germs that for the most part you should be able to glean at least some insight into your person's interests, either from posts on here or on reddit.

I didn't have a box for my care share so I ordered some boxes from amazon but they only send me box lids but fortunately the box they sent the boxes in looks to be about the right size.

Just shipped out my package. Apparently sending anything overseas >2kg without it taking 2 months costs a shocking amount. But they'll get it well in time for Christmas so it's worth it.

Should I write who the package is from (midvh/my name), or is it supposed to be a secret? I have no idea how this works, I've never done anything similar before.

Write who it is from. I don't know that the post office will let you send it without a return address, for one thing.

Raaamseeeeeaaaams

A cash selection of goods as can be seen. Two hats, vodka, maple syrup, biscuits and a book on post modernism.

Side note: I think he went over the maximum spend on the postage alone so props for going above and beyond my friend

Dear recipient,

After a baffling time at the Post Office (they have these new automated machines, and I was in a spin trying to work out how to pay for an envelope and postage without a human) I forgot to add my letter to the package.

Please do not be confused/worried by what I have sent. PM me when you get it and I will explain what the mystery piece is.

Belazebub!

Got the most amazingly eclectic gift from Bela in the mail today.

Image

Stikfas of Samurai with Stallion, make your own mini kites, command hooks and clothes hooks, a flask, a pocket sewing kit, lighter, gloves, a tee from muji compressed into a cube, pants I almost bought from him this summer, plenty of sweets and a copy of Snakes with Wings and Gold-Digging Ants.

This is great, Bela. Top contender for favorite gift I've gotten. Thanks!

The mini kites are for when you finally decide to settle down and fall in love hunnish. If you spend an afternoon making and flying mini kites with someone they can't help but fall in love with you.

The command hooks are because you're probably going to be renting accommodation for the next couple of years and they don't make walls

The clothes hook things are cedarwood to stop moths destroying your garms.

Everything else is pretty self explanatory.

^ maybe the best care-tags post ever.

i have been in consultation with a few friends about what to get my giftee as being 'representative of korea' and tonight i was telling them about other packages and showed them hooplah's video and explained the gift and my friend said, 'man, i feel like i haven't been taking enough advantage of the internet.'

i'm not really conveying the sentiment accurately because i'm kind of drunk but i'm really happy with how the care share has progressed thus far.
