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":

INFORM:
-books that you found funny/interseting/helpful
-tips you learned from others
-helpful websites

ENTERTAIN:
-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.

HEAL:
-That PMS tea that they sell.
-Handmade pads/liners/tampons.

COMFORT:
-Chocolate.
-Nice bath stuff to pamper yourself with.
-Heat pads/rice bags for aches and cramps.

Whaddya think? Wink

Ok, so are you suggesting that each participant does 4 items, one from each category? I'm going to have to watch this one...
