Well, I won’t have it said that I’m a person who does things by halfs, so here is a template for your first email contact with your Foodie Penpal. I think it covers all the bases but if you think of anything, leave a comment and I’ll get it added.
Dear <Foodie Penpal’s name>,
Hello! I’m your Foodie Penpal for this month. I want to make sure I send you a parcel you’ll love, so I just have a few questions…
- First of all, to what address should I send your parcel?
- Do you have any dietary requirements?
- Any allergies?
- Would you prefer healthy items, sweet treats or a mix of both?
- Foods and drinks you especially like or dislike? Think about spices, flavours, textures and more…
- Are you more of a cook or a baker (or both)?
- Would you prefer edible treats, things you can use to make your own treats or a mix of both?
I’m looking forward to sending your parcel out, it will be in the post by the 20th of the month, I promise. In the meantime, I’ll be checking out your blog – and feel free to check mine too!
