Do you all think I should add one medium item (like totes and clutches) as an option for those who might not want jewelry or hair accessories?

Maybe join the 2 small jewellery items and 2 - 3 small misc items together so its 4/5 small misc items including jewellery (depending on swap partners tastes). I personally would count a bag as a large item as they can be a lot of work but I suppose it depends on the crafters' skills. I don't have a working sewing machine so I hand sew.
Anyway, just my thoughts. I hope they makes sense Happy
