    The summer theme sounds good. How much to send an umbrella?

    I thought them suitable for both, Jai and our boys often wear scarves in the winter but maybe they are in a minority

    Back to the drawing board

    That could be a good idea for a winter exchange. I thought you had meant the light scraves that people are wearing for accents.

    If you get one of those umbrellas that close up really small, probably not too much to mail.

    We could do a Christmas in July exchange. It could be one item or a couple of small things. Ideas: a book, cd, jewelry, pins, stationary, etc. You could also list things you collect. We could set a dollar/pound limit.

    We could list a few things we'd like to get and the other person could send it to us wrapped up for Christmas.

    Given the international flavor of our site, it would be nice for an exchange to support that context, and not be something that we could get on our own anywhere. :)

    I actually liked the idea of scarves as they are light, they take many forms and if we go with the international context many, many people (men and women alike) wear scarves for decoration, warmth, and to show support of favorite teams, ect.

    Tea towels come to mind as well. Not that we need to have an exchange of those again, but they are light and lend themselves to depicting the area from which they are sent.

    Having an exchange of something we can buy ourselves in a local shop rather defeats the international context in which we exist, no?

    My thoughts, anyway.

    I don't even know what a tea towel is.

    I love getting local items. Whatever that might be....

    Maybe you need to be sent one then!
    You probably use a different name for it, its something used for drying dishes, plates etc
