Count Your Blessings (Bing Crosby / Rosemary Clooney)

I don't know about y'all, but receiving packages in the mail is so much fun!  My sunshine girls and I send boxes, with goodies for each family member, a couple of times each year.  I thought, however, that it would be fun to swap stuff around with other like-minded families, and maybe meet a few friends along the way...
Why not choose one of your favorite souvenirs (you can buy a new one, or swap something you already own - good condition, please) and send it off to a fellow reader for a little holiday treat?  In return you will be surprised with a token from that family.  It’s a win/win if ever there was one…and a great way to spread holiday cheer.  Have I convinced you yet?
  1. You will have one partner and send them small, tourist souvenirs. It can be anything (pen, keychain, magnet, jewelry, ornament, coaster, mirror, pillbox, etc), but please do not send your partner something from his/her home state. 
  2. No food items, please. 
  3. Aim to spend around $10 and, of course, aim to please. Please send on time and communicate if you're going to be late. 
  4. Please wrap the items well, so they can survive the delivery. 
  5. Feel free to come back to this post and show us what you received!
