Default Tourist Gift Swap Part Dos

We did this a couple of years back, and it was really fun/successful

Everyone who participates will go to a tourist spot near them and buy touristy items (t-shirts, postcards, mugs, pens, keychains, etc) which they will send to the person on the other end of the swap.

You'll be matched up with (hopefully) someone from the other side of the country/globe (if you're willing to ship internationally).

So yay or nay?

Here's the old thread for reference:

As long as it is a decent price range, and we have enough time to do it in, I am all for it!

Guilty!

And only because there wasn't an option for chocolate or alcohol.

Last time the limit was $10-$20.

Really, the cost isn't important since you can pick up brochures, t-shirts for like 5 for $10 lol at most touristy places.

We should probably have a minimum post count for people to participate with, also.

Last time we decided that members must have 150 posts. Thoughts?
