I love getting happy mail. If I hear about a postcard, letter, or some sort of gift exchange? I’m in. I’ve been participating in Reddit Gifts exchanges for about 4 years now. Reddit Gifts is an online gift exchange that started out as a Secret Santa exchange between Redditors, but now hosts TONS of themed exchanges throughout the year. This year I’ve participated in a Harry Potter gift exchange, stickers exchange, “Decorate my cubicle” exchange and yea…some more, but I’m not going to bore you with the list. I recently participated in a postcard exchange and a Presents for Pets exchange. I have to share these gifts because they were so very thoughtful and brightened my day.
In my likes/dislikes for the postcard exchange I wrote “I like lots of things, but I’m leaving my postcard choice up to you!” I was pleasantly surprised when I saw my postcard. My match did a fantastic job of snooping and gifted me this Sailor Moon themed postcard. Perfect, right?
My match for the pet gift exchange had such a big heart. She gifted Piper with a box full of awesome and Piper loved every single gift. There were bags of treats, two toys, a bat costume for Halloween and a little jacket for the winter. She also included a little scarf for me, which I thought was super sweet.
Here’s little Piper in her new jacket chilling on the couch after running around the house playing with her new toys!
Are you a big fan of receiving happy mail too? Sign up for a Reddit gift exchange, or a pen pal at International Geek Girl Pen Pal Club (IGGPPC), or you can drop me a line! I’m always up for snail mail friends.
My wishlists and Pinterest boards are filled with geeky clothing that need to live in my closet! It was so very hard to choose just five. Actually, it was a lot easier after I banned myself from having more than one Sailor Moon item on the list >.< Here are five geeky clothing items I need in my closet…NOW!
ModCloth’s Trip to Kawaii Dress is almost too cute! Covered in Sanrio characters including my favorite, Hello Kitty. I’ve wanted this dress forever, but it always sells out in my size first.
Sailor Moon Skater Dress from Living Dead is EVERYTHING. Love another senshi? THEY HAVE THEM ALL!
Jinx of MTCoffinz creates these awesome apron/pinafore skirts that can be custom made to whatever you fancy. I’ve always wanted this Reese from Animal Crossing pinafore. I love Animal Crossing and think it would be fun to wear at a con. Now, to convince the boof to wear Cyrus’ costume.
I love geeky themed leggings. These Totoro themed leggings made to order ones from Zelas are awesome.
I live in dresses, but how could I say no to a shirt featuring bad ass Ryuko Matoi of Kill la Kill? I couldn’t! So this shirt it’s the last item of my list! Kill la Kill is the show that re-launched my love for anime (It’s on Netflix and Crunchyroll!) and Ryuko is…awesome.
What geeky clothing items are on your wishlist? Did you participate in Fandom Friday? You should! Shoutout to The Nerdy Girlie and Super Space Chick for creating such a fun and geeky link-up!
