This should be a really fun, simple swap, and fairly inexpensive for sending.
Fill a small decorated jewelry gift box approx 3 5/8 x 3 5/8 x 1 (9 cm x 9 cm x 2 cm). Here’s an undecorated one, to give you an idea of the size. It’s pretty small, but you can fit a lot of tiny goodies in there! A decorated container of similar volume is fine if you can’t find a box just this size.
Whimsies may be purchased or crafted. Some examples: buttons, small figurines, flat backs, unusual beads, miniature items, ephemera… Just plan to send things that would enchant you if you were to receive them (and to your partner’s tastes, of course). In addition to the whimsies, craft one miniature item that would be suitable for a dollhouse or diorama. (The miniature item doesn’t have to fit into the box.) Extras are ok if you and your partner agree on them.
There are plenty of video tutorials on YouTube, and here are some links to some websites that have miniature tutorials on them as well. These are great resources for ideas as well as how-to’s.
