Everyone has some great ideas for stocking stuffers!  You're all getting me super excited for this swap to start Smiley  I think I'm going to try to find some little local goodies to include in my package if it fits with my partner of course.

I always include a deck of local playing cards. I'm not one much for the whole Roswell Alien thing but it is something we are known for so I always have to put at least the whole Local Cards thing, but if my partner wants more I am always down with supporting the community. I love getting stuff from my partners' locale. Everywhere has such different customs and unique stuff, even just here in the US. I would love to be able to swap more internationally but alas, tight budgets.

Someone mentioned yarn as a stuffer and I agree! Craft supplies in general are always awesome and great stuffers.

    I agree with including something local - that's always fun! Sadly, one of the things we're best known for wouldn't make it through the mail - they're these delicious things called persians - basically a soft cinnamon bun with pink frosting. Mmmmm.
    Depending on my partner's tastes, I may include something from a local businessman we work with at the design firm I'm employed at. I do all of his packaging design so it's sort of a crafty item for me! Smiley

    All we have to decide is what to craft with the time that is given to us.

    Most of the things we are known for are food related or outdoorsy, so I don't send if my partner doesn't want food.lol  But I do love to get fun things from other places.

    I'll start putting all the items in the first post at some point this weekend.  I did a huge list one year, I'll have to find it.  It's nice to have some ideas for general items when you're stuck.
