[ profile] ghoti posted a list of 5 things they felt they could never have too many of, for the times when someone wanted to give them a small present. I thought this was a great idea and (with permission) am hereby memeing it.

My list is:

  • postcards with thoughtful messages on
  • tiny bottles/packets/jars of interesting seasonings
  • gel pens in any colour other than blue
  • small packets of unusual types of rice
  • themed postal stamps (i.e. ones that cost the same as normal stamps but have different pictures on)

What's yours?

The unused stamps don't so much become unusable as irritating. I often end up buying a pack of 10 of the next price, because I don't have the required matching values to make a 'correct' postage. I have to remember to get 5c or 10c stamps to add to the old ones, and while the post offices all stock them, not all of the post agencies do.

It would be amusing for a short while with the send UK mail with AU stamps, but I suspect that it would boomerang.
