Forum Exchange - What theme should we do next?

We are wrapping up our most recent forum exchange:



What theme should we do next? We are expecting to begin signups next week with the exchange concluding sometime in July.

    I was thinking something like "Summer Fun" - but I have a feeling a lot of summer sub-boxes will be doing the same thing.

    Backyard fun would be cool! Or a wanderlust/travel theme
  • finlidanfinlidan Posts: 1,326
    I was hoping for the traveling swap box!

    I liked the white elephant and favorites exchange. It would be cool to have an exchange to get rid of something that's in sub boxes a lot that you don't use (black liner, dry shampoo etc) and give it to someone who does use it but that might be too specific.

    Made in the USA is a really cool idea but unfortunately I think it would be really difficult to do (too few things actually made here).

    I like the idea of a wanderlust or staycation box. The "treat yo-self" pampering of a stay-cation would be very welcome about now. :)

    @Lex I love that idea! I put all of my dry shampoo into my extras box because I don't use it. I feel like everyone has that one common item in boxes that they love.

    @finlidan I'm with you on that. I've never done one and think it would be fun!
  • whitpickwhitpick Posts: 208
    @Chey side note: I am ALWAYS looking for dry shampoo if you ever want to swap a bunch :blush:
  • whitpickwhitpick Posts: 208
    I'm really excited to participate this time! I like the staycation idea.
  • CheyChey Posts: 386
    @whitpick I followed you on swaps! I just got rid of my last set so once I get another bunch I'll send you a request!

    I love the staycation theme, or maybe a spa theme
  • BestAuntEverBestAuntEver Posts: 1,297
    I also like the staycation/spa theme. Having the questionnaire list your favorite travel destinations and/or environment vibes (tranquil, exciting, etc.) is a great idea @rachelnyc.
  • SarahFrancesSarahFrances Posts: 485
    Add another "vote" for staycation. I also love the ideas that @Nyx mentioned and would happily participate in either of those as well.
  • DarCoDarCo Posts: 419
    I love the idea of a staycation. The questionnaire would be helpful to curate a box towards the recipients idea of a vacation. Ie: relaxing/spa, adventure, family/or me time, types places to go, etc

    There used to be a box reviewed that celebrated obscure random holidays. I think doing something like that would be fun.

    YAAAASSSSSS. Today is National Chocolate Chip day -- fun foodie box. It's also National Love a Tree Day -- great hippie/yogi-esque box.

    I participated in the color swap but I didn't do the local exchange. I think that one would be fun for those of us that didn't participate in it or those that like it & want to do it again.
  • lizRlizR Posts: 511
    I like the Made in the USA or Staycation exchange ideas. While I enjoyed the Traveling Box exchange last year, it did take a long time.
  • NyxNyx Posts: 1,386
    @mycatbutters - I was thinking the same thing! A vague staycation theme or spa day theme could end up being just a popsugar wannabe box. I'm hoping for something more unique or unusual out of our next big exchange, not just a 'safe' spa day box. Of course, if that's what everyone else wants, go for it and I will cheer from the sidelines! I don't need any more candles, bath bombs, tumblers or round towels unless it's a different theme.. I like the idea of a cute box that isn't kawaii, too!
  • EliseElise Posts: 375
    What about a Destination box? That allows for more personalization I think (Beach theme, great outdoors theme, ski bunny theme, specific country/city theme, etc) (staycation theme could be an option too?)
  • lisadlisad Posts: 2,097
    I love the staycation theme for sure!
  • BestAuntEverBestAuntEver Posts: 1,297
    @Elise Agreed, that would be cool.

    I would not be interested in a random holiday theme or a glittery box. Definitely not my jam.
  • shelleyhuntshelleyhunt Posts: 105
    Gosh...I like pretty much every idea so far! Summer is my favorite time of year and I love anything beach/outdoor related. Love the idea of summer fun, backyard fun, staycation, spa and white elephant! I missed out on the color swap this time, so I would be down for that too.

    I also like the traveling my perfect world that would be a separate swap even if it started around the same time as this forum swap. That way we could have the best of both worlds!!
  • LexLex Posts: 229
    @Elise I think that's a great idea. I don't like traveling or most summer related items/activities but for "destination" I would put something like haunted castle and could get things that are dark and gothic and totally right up my alley.

    Whatever the theme is there will still be a questionnaire so it will be suited to you, but a more specific theme definitely helps gives ideas for what to get.
