Gimme Your Stuff!!

While browsing blogs I came across one where they posted about a cultural exchange blog. A What? Well - I had nothing better to do - so I went to check it out.


Gimme Your Stuff is a blog that hooks people up around the world so they can exchange cultural items and learn more about the other person, their country, etc. Hmmm. This could be fun!! So far there are 680 "Amassadors" from 42 different countries. You can pick the country and who you would like to exchange with.



Gimme Your Stuff




Now the hard part!! Which country to start with and what to send? There are so many countries to choose from and so many I would love to see. HELP!!!


They have lots of pics of swaps that have happened already. Gives me a few ideas. I live in the Sunflower Capital of Canada - so I guess I'll have to get/make something with sunflowers on it.
I can also offer:
magazines
craft books
cook books
cards
hand painted items
bags
soaps
lotions
lip balm
Canadian souvenirs
almost anything you like

  1. What a fabulous idea! I always think it's fun to get a newspaper in either an unfamiliar language or in German so I can test my reading skills (which are much lower than my speaking skills). Thanks for sharing the info on this website. I think sending something very typical "kitsch" for wherever you live would be fun.
