valentines-topWho’s ready for a mailbox full of LOVE?!

What the world needs now is love, sweet love ♪♫♪ …good thing we Geek Girl Pen Pals are located all over the globe, ready to fire off envelopes full of doodle and washi tape-slathered goodness at a moment’s notice! In this swap, we celebrate the holiday of love by swapping VALENTINES of all sorts! Sound good to you? Read up on what this swap requires then sign up below!

This is a proactive swap!

That means everyone who signs up will be added to a spreadsheet which will be emailed out to all participants. You will be responsible for contacting fellow iggles to request swaps. You may request as many as you wish, but be considerate – observe the mailing deadline and do not take on more than you can handle.


  • Sign ups are open until February 1.
  • A link to the participant spreadsheet will be emailed to participants the next day.
  • Mail your cards by February 14. The sooner the better!


We’re sending each other festive valentines! Greeting cards are swell, but postcards also count! You may include optional surprises such as candy or stickers, but keep in mind – the valentine itself is the only required component. Since we’re spreading the love, feel free to jot a message of encouragement, good vibes, a favorite quote, a haiku, a limerick… be as creative as you want!

  • Your delightful valentine creations may be either hand made or store bought!
  • Remember, once you receive the list of participants, you are responsible for reaching out to others to request a swap.
  • When you’ve accepted as many swaps as you can handle, you may delete your contact info.
  • You may opt to decline international swaps. Please note: this may limit the amount of swap requests you get.
  • House Granger (ages 13-17), please ask your parents for permission to participate!
  • Review the safety guidelines for our community. Do not hesitate to decline a swap if you feel unsafe.

We LOOOOOVE to see what you all are receiving in the post! Tweet, Instagram, and Snapchat pictures of your haul to @iggleswaps, @geekgirlpenpals, and remember to hashtag ’em with #IGGPPC and #IggleSwaps!
