For people who do not own a book of shadows, partners could trade one crafted book plus any extras they feel like.
For people who do own a book of shadows: Partners could trade fancy pens, quills, calligraphy stuff, ink wells, rubber stamps, ATC bookmarks, other fancy bookmarks, a fancy bookplate, paper ephemera, BOS inserts or pages, pressed flowers, protective bags, and anything and everything that can be put in or used to enhance a BOS.
I will make this swap 1 medium, and two smalls--with the ability to do more being between partners.
So for instance, you could make one book, a quill pen, and a fancy book mark. For someone with a book already, you could make a small assortment of single-sided chunky pages, a rubber stamp, and a book plate. Also, small items can be supplies like jars of ink, stamp pads, paper ephemera, etc!
Any extra splurging and spoiling is up to you are your partner!

What allergens are in your environment?
What are your thoughts on the TV show Charmed?***Disclaimer in the interest of full disclosure: You are still welcome to join in on the swap if you are not witch/wiccan/pagan/otherwise spiritual, just know that there is a definite spirituality/religious tradition that goes into these books, and a BOS might mean something different to your partner than it does to you, and your partner may not want to craft something from the show Charmed. It's totally cool if you both like the show though--I just don't want someone to think that they're getting paired up with another Charmed fan, and receive a full fledged witch instead and feel uncomfortable.
I have read the disclaimer, and I'm cool with it: Y/N
