Holiday Gift Exchange Details




If you haven't commented on yesterday's post about my Holiday Gift Swap, here is some more information for you. I love the idea, and have for some time, of being involved in a small swap with friends where we all create 11 similar gifts, mail them out and then each open 11 gifts over the course of the 12 days of Christmas. So I thought I would host one myself.  

The gifts should be creative, but do not have to be all the same. You may choose what you'd like to send. I am assuming a lot of you are jewelry fanatics like I am- but if you have another idea, that is not jewelry-related, that would be a fun twist!

All gifts should be mailed out by December 12th - 2 weeks should be enough time for everyone to receive all 11 gifts. 

Each participant will be responsible for making 11 similar gifts, wrapping each one, and mailing one to each of the participants. Starting December 25th, we will start opening each gift, 1 for each day of the 12 days of Christmas. If you are inclined to blog about the gifts you receive, wonderful! If you don't wish to, it's not a requirement. But if each gift is different, you might want to show off what you got and see what others received as well.


Each participant will get a number. Please label your gifts with your number so that we know what day we should open your gift. For example, if I am #1, my gifts will be opened on Day 1.

I will pick 11 participants tomorrow, November 23rd.  Please leave a comment on yesterday's post if you would be interested in being considered for the swap. U.S. Participants only.-I would hate for the mail system to screw this up, so to play it safe- we'll stick to the U.S. for this year's swap. Next year I promise to get my shit together a bit sooner for all countries to be able to participate.

  2. Eventhough I'm not playing along (this year) I can't wait to see what everyone makes.

  3. I like it Lorelei. I have just entered to something similar here in Sweden. Just a little different. It is about christmas ornaments. Ones you've made yourself. You send to about 6 people, and receive something from the same group. And I think we are allowed to open each gift when we receive it. It will be fun I think. Good luck with your thing!

  4. What a fun idea! I'd love to be a part of that if possible. I have some holiday projects I am working on and no one to give them to.

I'm sorry to have to turn on the word verification here, but I got fed up with spammers comments!
