How It Works

In this swap you will be matched with one partner and the two of you will send each other boxes full of all the Halloweeniest stuff you can imagine! This can include, but is not limited to Halloween-themed: stationery supplies, candy, decorations, jewelry, toys, trinkets, books, etc. You’ll be asked to provide a little additional info about your interests on the sign up form to inspire your swap partner.

If you want to discuss ideas for this swap and more, please join us in our swap-specific channel on the Official IGGPPC Discord: #halloween-box-swap


Suggested spending limit $20. You and your partner may agree on a higher limit, but please be aware that this swap is about sharing festive Halloween cheer and NOT about sending expensive items.

While handmade items (such as art or jewelry) are acceptable, in the interest of safety we ask that any edible goodies are storebought only. Please do not send homemade food to your swap partner.

You must agree to abide by our community Terms and Conditions in order to participate in this swap. You must be at least 17 years of age to participate.

Good swap etiquette includes notifying your partner directly once you receive your package. Please let them know your swap has arrived safe and sound!

Show off your haul!
