Off topic: Timbres, stamps etc. for a 12-year-old kid
Thread poster: Florence Lesur
My stepson the philatelist will turn 12 on December 22nd, and I was wondering if some kind souls out there could help me arrange an original gift and send him a nice postcard (duly stamped, naturally) wishing happy birthday in your native tongue?
Please contact me privately in English or French (email@example.com) for contact details, but feel free to discuss on the topic and idea here!
Thanks a bunch in advance,
Le fils de mon mari, philatéliste à ses heures, aura 12 ans le 22 décembre prochain. Je me demandais si des âmes charitables parmi vous accepteraient de participer à une idée-cadeau originale en lui envoyant une carte postale (avec le timbre qui va avec, bien sûr) pour lui souhaiter bon anniversaire dans votre langue maternelle ?
Vous pouvez me contacter en privé - en français ou en anglais - (firstname.lastname@example.org) pour obtenir nos coordonnées, mais n'hésitez pas à discuter de l'idée ici.
Mille mercis d'avance,

Hi Henk and Florence,
My twin 7 year old daughters would be interested. We can also add other items like coins etc. to this maybe that would be cheap and easy to ship. Other may have ideas on small things to exchange.

Hello Henk and Alp,
I don't think my stepson would be likely to participate to such exchanges. To make a long (and painful) story short, Mummy will never allow it. What my husband and I have in mind is an original one-off gift that shows we paid attention to his collecting stamps... without putting too much pressure on him (as we only see him every other weekend and half the holidays).
But exchanges are a great idea, and if some could stem from our posts, it would be fantastic. Being part of an international community can definitely be a plus in some respect.
