Gimme Your Stuff

Gimme Your Stuff

[At this moment I'm on a new internship with some money prob, so swaps are paused for now! Merry xmas to u all! ;)]

Surfing on the web, yesterday I found an amazing site, Gimme Your Stuff .
This site is based on a beautiful idea, about swap, i.e. the exchange of objects typical from your country with a person in another country!
You have the joy of opening a parcel made with love by a person who lives miles and miles away from you, and that you even don't know!
It's a great GREAT idea, so I want to participate, I HAVE TO! :D

Before starting, you may want to know that I live here:

I'm ready to swap:

- Snacks, candies, every shippable gourmet food and drink from Italy.
Some idea? Dried porcini mushrooms, "bolognese" sauce, jams home-made by me, honey, cookies (commercial or home made), Nutella (chocolate and nuts cream), pasta (classic or regional), Liguria's "pesto" (typical mediterranean basil sauce), olives, italian coffee, oregano....
what you want ;)
- Grandma's italian recipes;
- Typical art and craft.
- Italian books and magazines.
- Bags & clothing: t-shirts, underwear, accessories.
- Stickers, Stationery, souvenirs & postcards.
- Cosmetics, perfumed lotions and hair accessories.
- Everything you desire from Italy
(in particular from Turin)!

N.B.: Living in Turin I could send to you the best italian chocolate:
do you know "gianduia", milk chocholate with nuts (and Turin's nuts are the best from italy ^^)?

Or "Cuneesi", big chocolate candies stuffed with rum in a cream that fill your mouth and freaks you out?

Well, I'm swapping also these things, but obviously only in winter season ;)


What I'd like to receive:

- Japanese candy/snacks, in particular typical flavours (maccha, sakura, etc): pockies, mochi, kitkat, daifuku;
I *love* strawberry, peach, vanilla, and cherries!
- Noodles (not fish flavoured);
- Particular/typical Tea and herb tea;
- Fridge Magnets, tea cups, candles;
- 100 yen store objects (stationery, bento boxes and accessories, etc);
- Postcards of your area;
- Bags and accessories;
- Everything kawaii (plushes, stationery, straps, plastic jewellery -I have no problem with nickel-, etc);
- Everything typically Japanese: Sanrio (I especially love Kurome and My Melody), Sakura, Fuurin, Maneki neko, Totoro, omamori, kanjii related things.
- In general I like: purple, red, pink and black; transparent things; sweet frangrances like vanilla, jasmine, almond, coconut, monoi; bunnies, cows, dragonflies, bats and butterflies; beautiful landscapes; curry;
- Surprise me! ^_^

My email is , write to me and tell me what you collect, what do you like, your favourite colors and flavors!

EDIT: The first swap of my life is with Mama! So happy!!

Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.
Sildenafil Citrate is the active ingredient used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. It can help men who have erectile dysfunction get and sustain an erection when they are sexually excited.
Generic Viagra is manufactured in accordance with World Health Organization standards and guidelines (WHO-GMP). Also you can find on our sites.
Generic Viagra is made with thorough reverse engineering for the sildenafil citrate molecule - a totally different process of making sildenafil and its reaction. That is why it takes effect in 15 minutes compared to other drugs which take 30-40 minutes to take effect.
Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
