This swap is based on the LEGO Advent Calendars the LEGO Store sells every year. The price of those keeps rising, but this one will be one you craft yourself!
Buy 24 small containers or little baggies and put them together in some display. You could also buy some daily pill organizers--enough for at least 24 small compartments. Decorate or wrap these so they're nice-looking. Number each compartment from 1 through 24. You can find pill organizers at a dollar store, drug store, pharmacy, or most grocery stores. You can find small baggies in most craft stores. Make sure your partner can't see inside so each day's contents is a mystery until opened.
Put at least three LEGO bricks in each compartment. This is a mini version, so you don't have to make each compartment something that can be built and standalone, but you are certainly welcome to do so if you want to make it extra special for your partner. Or you could buy a set and divide it up among all the days so your partner will have a complete set at the end.
If you have any bonus compartments, you are welcome to write LEGO tips or warm holiday wishes and put those in the bonus compartments. Or you can put bricks or other LEGO surprises in those compartments.
The bricks should be new or very gently used and in very good condition. Bricks are sender's choice, so you can start working on the project as soon as you sign up.
