Hi, I was reading the threads for tampons and pads and I was thinking we need another menstruation swap. I was thinking the main things you would have to do would be: INFORM, ENTERTAIN, HEAL, and COMFORT. When I say heal, I don't mean like doctor heal, I mean like feel better heal. Obviously it could not be 18+, but I think that we all could be mature about it.
For INFORM, you could each get a tip or two and send it to everyone as a postcard or whatever. Decorate it, make it pretty, whatever you like. That would be PORTION UNO.
For PORTION TWO, you would have a normal swap. Here are some ideas I had for each of the "themes":
-books that you found funny/interseting/helpful
-tips you learned from others
-stuffies of tampons or other period paraphanalia.
-Funny bags to keep used reusable pads in.
-Magazines/books/movies that you like to read/watch when you're on the rag.
-That PMS tea that they sell.
-Nice bath stuff to pamper yourself with.
-Heat pads/rice bags for aches and cramps.
