Ok I absoluetly LOVE kawaii stuff but I'm not exactly an expert. Has there been a similar swap where I can check out stuff? Or a website you guys would suggest where I can get ideas? I really want to join but I don't want to disappoint my partner!

I've signed up Smiley Oooh this is gonna be fun!

P.s csi_princess i have to confess i am no expert either but i know what i like and your partner is bound to give you direction towards what they like so i wouldn't worry to much!  Wink but if there has been a swap like this there is no harm in looking at the gallery. (but i don't know if there has been one before sorry. Not a lot of help am i!)

They laugh at me because I'm different.
I pity them because they're all the same.

i'm not sure about similar swaps, but if you check out swaps like the sanrio swap, and hello kitty and friends swap, theres tonnes of cute items there.

i'm sure you'd be fine! think japanese inspired things, like plushies of characters, amiguris, fimo jewellery, plastic jewellery, colourful stationary, themed accessories, i.e a fruit hat or rainbow scarf. Basically anything that you think is cute! The sky's the limit!

if you are really stuck, try googling kawaii, it comes up with tonnes of things!
