There are so many Christmas swaps for us on swap-bot but what about our loved ones? I thought i would start a Christmas present swap for our partners, husbands, children, parents or grandparents. Or any other loved one you have!

For this swap you will send your swap-partners selected loved one a gift for Christmas. It should be between $10-$15 before postage. Items must be wrapped nicely in Christmas paper and it would be lovely to include a Christmas card too!

You must list in the comment section below (prior to the sign up date) what sort of interests/hobbies they have, their name, age and how they are connected to you. Eg. Sister, son, husband etc. You need to list a minimum of 6 interests/hobbies/collections but more is preferable to make it easy for your partner. This info needs to be listed before sign up ends otherwise you will be removed from the swap. This swap (unless otherwise specified) will be sent to the address you have on file.

Open to everyone in the group :)

Have fun and have a very Merry Christmas!

I just looked at the dates IK can put money away in 2 lots. But be4 I enter i beter find 6 items to list.

Great to hear there is some interest in this one :D

@craftycol you can send as many or as few items as you'd like as long as the value is in that price range. After all sometimes it is smaller gifts that make people just as happy as the larger ones :-)

I too like this idea. DGS (mr3) & his family live with me and as he will have a new baby sister by late Nov I think it would be nice for him to get a gift. Could my partner address it to him too? He loves cars, Cars, Toy Story, stickers, books & colouring books, and he wears size 4 t-shirts (just in case). Please give clear lists of likes here, people. My brain is not always good at working things out, so I need all the help I can get to make this a great swap.

I nominate my Fiance Nathan, he's 22. Please address the swap to him, same address.

He likes:
- Any flavour of Kit Kat
- Chilli sauce (hotter or more unusual the better)
- Video Game items (Any video game guides, small nintendo collectibles or snacks such as Three Dees, nintendo pez, nintendo tins. Game Traders is a good store for these or Three Dees can be found in the muesli bar section of some Safeway/Woolworths supermarkets)
- Trading Cards (Any, easy to find in newsagencies or stores like game traders)
- Sushi items (Nori sheets, any tinned fish, tinned muscles, tinned oysters, kewpie mayonnaise)
- Gummie bears, worms, sour worms, apple rings

Second hand is fine for video game guides :-)

More ideas on my profile if you need any more suggestions. Happy swapping!
