Items NOT suggested:

- Size-wise: shoes, pants, ring, etc.

- Perfume. It is a hazardous material that cannot be sent via mail.

- Cosmetic/skin care products. We don’t know if the products are good for them or if they might have an allergic reaction to them.

- Food/perishable products.

- Breakable items or anything too fragile.

- Electronic gadgets. It’s fragile and we don’t know if the spec is compatible in Korea or not. And the boys have their own iPod, iPad and phones.

- Anything that is too biased, such as religious items.

- Anything that is too heavy or oversized.

- Your own handmade crafts: We understand that you want to show your love for Boyfriend by making them something yourself instead of buying it. However, handmade crafts sometimes don’t match the receiver’s taste and we don’t want Boyfriend to throw your gift away just because of that. If you decide to gift them your own crafts, we will accept it, but they are not our priority due to the shipping cost.

And before you make any crafts please consider that:

-  It should have a use of some sort of use

- You MUST tell us what is the purpose of your craft and why Boyfriend should have it.

GIFTS ideas:

1. Clothing items

Winter accessories are nice, such as scarf, gloves or a warm beanie. T-shirts / Hoodies will be the best bet. Button up shirts will be tricky because of the size. Sweaters or jackets will be too heavy, keep in mind about the shipping please.

Shirt Sizes:

Donghyun, Jeongmin, Jo Twins: 95

Minwoo: 93

Hyunseong: 100-105

Korean men shirt size is measured by centimeters (across the chest)

As for Minwoo, even though he said 93, you can also use 95 just to be safe, because it’s almost like MEDIUM size in Asian shirt sizes.

Hyunseong is the only one who is bigger than the rest.

To help you understand Korean shirt sizes vs international sizes, please click here or here

2. Accessories:

Hats, snapbacks, beanies, bracelets, necklaces, watches, bags, wallets, sunglasses etc.

3. Non-wearable items

CD or DVD or Book

Please choose something that you think Boyfriend might like and don’t be too biased. Maybe you really like a CD or a movie, but it can be offensive to other people. Please be considerate.

For movie dvd’s or books, please get ones in Korean. There are a lot of places that sell Korean books, translated into Korean books, or DVDs with Korean subtitles. We can help you look for the links.

Traditional crafts

You want to promote your country/culture? You can send the boys gifts that represent your culture. Pick something small and light such as keychains, pens, or something nice to decorate their rooms. Rules for NOT SUGGESTED ITEMS applied (see above).

REGIONAL FANBASE INVITATION

We invite all regional Boyfriend Fanbases to join this project.

We don’t limit the fanbase just for regional (such as BF Spain, BF France, BF Philliphines, BF Indonesia etc), but all the BF fanbases that reflect the region/country will make more impact to show Boyfriend that there are Bestfriends all over the world.

Other BF fanbases (such as Fansite, Weblog, Tumblr, Fanpage, etc) are welcome to join us as well.

If you join the project, your logo will be printed on the Bestfriend selca banner, and you can write a description about your fanbase. Let Boyfriend know you exist and love them to death!

How to do the project:

It is the same, you can donate GIFTS and/or MONEY.

GIFTS will be pooled at a Bestfriend representative in Singapore (we will announce the detail later).

Rules about gifts apply (see above) and make sure everything is packed nicely and safely because the gifts will travel around a lot.

MONEY should be sent via paypal to inkandpaper77 at gmail.com.

Along with a message about the amount, who you are and other information that explains about the donation.

How to do regional donation (in your own currency)

We understand that many Bestfriends don’t have paypal account, and sending money overseas is a problem.

Here is some ways to collect donation:

1. Pick a leader, someone who can responsible with the money and the project.

2. Get someone to help you send the money via paypal (if the leader doesn’t have one)

3. The leader will decide the option to send donation that apply in your country/region

4. Collect the donation (and the gifts and the selca if necessary)

5. Send all of them to the appointed address

How to collect donation

Meet up and have a cash collection

If many of your fanbase members live in one city, you can organize a meetup and collect the money when you meet.

Sending concealed cash via mail/letters to  the leader

This way is slow and sometimes can be risky, but it works if you live in different cities. Just remember to wrap the cash so it won’t show through the envelope. I use a cut of newspaper to cover concealed cash, and fold it in a regular letter/blank paper.

Direct deposit to bank account

The leader should have a bank account and provide the bank account number and full name.

Bestfriends who wants to donate can go to that bank and make a direct deposit (or ATM transfer if you have the same bank).

For example:

Indonesian Bestfriends usually have BCA bank account. If the leader have a BCA account, then she should provide the BCA account number and her full name.

If you want to donate, you go to the nearest BCA in your own city and fill out a deposit form. Write the leader’s full name and bank account number, the amount you deposit and you sign it with your own name.

In bank, you can deposit to anyone’s account, they will accept it and it will go directly to the leader’s account. No meetup or mailing necessary.

About the amount, please convert the US dollar to your own currency the best you can.

For example:

Minimum donation is US$1.

US$1 = Rp 11.950, then you have to round it UP. Make it Rp 12.000 or Rp 13.000.

So US$1 = Rp 12.000  (you can send in a selca)

And US$5 = Rp 12.000 x 5 = Rp 60.000 (you can send in a selca and a letter)

The leader must record all donation and let the donors know that she receives the money. The list should be kept and sent along to us.

How to collect gifts:

THE COLLECTION OF THE GIFTS should be done the same way, via meetup or mailing.

Please think carefully before you buy or wrap up the gifts, keep in mind about the shipping cost and process. If you need to bubble wrap it, then please do so. The project leaders are NOT responsible of any damage of your gift caused by poor packaging.

The sender must provide information about the gift and the nature of it if necessary, so the leader can write down everything for the record.

For example: “1 black Guess wrist watch – fragile, but I put it in a box, bubble-wrapped. For Minwoo from Velisha in the USA.” (omg I wish lol no money OTL)

As for the selca:

Selca must be accompanied with:

  • your NAME/NICKNAME, but please avoid using Boyfriend members name if you can. It would be weird for Boyfriend to read their own names on someone else’s photo.
  • your location (city & country)
  • your email (will not be shared, but to contact you if necessary)

Send it as attachment to info@imyourbestfriend.com with subject: BF XMAS PROJECT:  Selca entry

OR

Zip it and upload it onto mediafire or I’m Your Boyfriend Mega account
https://mega.co.nz/ 
user: info@imyourbestfriend.com
password: janus0526

Please upload it to folder BF XMAS PROJECT – SELCA FILES

Any unnecessary uploads will be deleted without warning.

 

TO ALL REGIONAL FANBASES PROJECT LEADERS:

Keep in mind of these points.

1. Do not work alone. There should be at least 2 persons who are in charge, but use only 1 address or bank account.

2. The two of you should keep and share information to your donors to avoid fraud. All records of gifts and money must be sent to this forum (Project Leader Kelly or assistant Velisha).

3. If you have any problem, let us know, we will try our best to help you out.

4. DO NOT FORCE YOURSELF. If you can only do a little bit, it’s better than wanting to send tons of gifts or lots of money. Keep everything simple but on time for the deadline is much better. There will be more project in the future.

5. DEADLINE is negotiable up to a certain extent. Please contact us if you have problems with deadline.

6. If you don’t have your own paypal, find someone you can trust that has paypal, work things out so you can send the money via that person’s paypal.

7. Communication is important. Even if you are extremely busy with real life, once you are a leader, please say something, ask help if this is overwhelmed you, do not just go missing or silent and put the project in jeopardy. You can ask the phone number of your donors so you can just text or call them if necessary.
