If you compare the cost of crafting an item with the cost of gifting it to a friend, you’ll find there are several crafts that are worthwhile swapping with friends. You can create swap groups and agree to exchange these items for less than the cost of crafting them and save on coins and stamps.

Note that the Ice Breath is the most useful for swapping to earn shard achievements. With none in your inventory, you can gift it to a friend by paying 290 coins, then your friend gifts you one in return. When you convert yours to shards, you continue to have none in your inventory and can buy them for others in your swap group.

You can gift the following crafts for at least 2,000 coins less than crafting them. For the amount of savings, see the last column. Includes all crafts thru level 106.
