Following round 1, this is round 2 of the swapbot secret santa swap. It is up much later than expected due to problems with people sending late/not receiving it yet so I wanted to give some time to those and put this up a little late. Requirements will be a little tighter this time and round #3 november will be up in a few weeks so they will overlap. Please keep that in mind if you join both!

the idea is that you send a package with at least 2 gifts in it each month. so in total you will send a minimum of 8 gifts, and in return you will receive 8 gifts in time for christmas to open on Christmas day from your swap partners :)

each month there will be a themed surprise. this will be a little something to shake the swaps up & will change monthly. if would be great if everyone who joins, joins each swap and completes the whole cycle, however i know it may not be possible :)

this is ROUND TWO of this swap. round THREE will be up in november.

for this swap first comment below with what's on your christmas wishlist. please don't put very expensive items and be considerate. keep it open and don't get too specific. favourite colours, shapes, things you collect etc. swap partners look at your partners comment wishlist + their profile and:

send them a package including a minimum TWO WRAPPED GIFTS not to be opened until christmas!

round 2 themed surprise: include a small christmas onament/decoration. (Unwrapped) ideas: small tree ornament, christmas embellishment, christmas gift tag, christmas stickers. The "decoration" theme is up to you: it can be craft based or home decoration! Doesn't have to be of high quality or price! :)

it is very important that your two gifts are wrapped because you can't open them until christmas! You can leave the surprise unwrapped!

so to wrap it up: - send a package with 2 wrapped gifts to your partner and a surprise themed gift (want a heart & to make your person v. happy on christmas day? send an extra gift or christmas card :D) - by the deadline - look out for next months swap


rating filter will be high for these swaps for many reasons. there is a lot of trust involved in this. please don't send sloppy items, dirty items and don't just go out to the dollar store, buy 2 random items and wrap them up. you will be rating your partner a 5 if you receive the wrapped gifts + the themed surprise, you won't rate for the GIFTS because you won't open them until christmas so please LOOK AT YOUR PARTNERS WISHLISH & PROFILE, send something they will like.

flaker free zone. please don't waste my time and let anyone down. Christmas is a nice time, don't ruin it by flaking

please avoid sending food items in this month swap as there are months yet until christmas.

you must have a minimum of 5 rating. no 1's or 3's ever. no newbies, sorry. you must have completed at least 5 type 3 swaps. i will be going through profiles & being the flaker-ban elf!!

ideas for next months themed surprise are welcome just comment below. happy swapping!!

Hello kitty, disney, sanrio are my favourite "themes" though I am happy to receive anything stationery/paper goods, any stickers, embellishments, notecards. I like cute/girly, nothing horror no skulls or gothic, I like nice smelling things, pens, cute novelties, my favourite animal is bird and lions.

Hi everyone. Due to a few messages about this swap from participants I have extended the deadline by another week. Round 3 will be up soon also. The reason for extending is because a few people did send late last time and now a few people in this round are saying they need more time... I don't want people to send late & receive bad ratings/partners to be disappointed when receiving their swaps, so I've extended it for you. Please continue send on time and, if possible, send by the original deadline (14th) - that would be great. Please don't feel that you have to wait to send your swaps. Because of this extension I do expect everyone to have sent by the deadline and no later or I will have to re-consider when you join for round 3. Thank you! - naomi
