This swap we will have 1 partner & we will be sending our partner a christmas stocking full with gifts and little bits & bobs.
Buy a christmas stocking for your partner or make one yourself but please make it look professional, not just cut out paper or a sack! Any shape, size, design but must be obviously christmas!
The size & stocking is up to you. @cutesygirlynai was going to put requirements on the size of stocking but decided that it would be easier to put a requirement on the contents of the stocking so you can decide weight.
In your stocking, please include minimum (5) gifts/stocking fillers. £1/$1/1 euro minimum each or handmade is fine but no more than 2 items can be handmade.
The stocking fillers are profile-based. This goes for the handmade or storebought or destash items. So please check your partners profile!
If your partner likes crafts/paper ephemera, you are welcome to de-stash & include these as gifts in your stocking. However please don't just throw random bits of papers, stickers etc. in the stocking - not only will they probably get damaged, but it isn't very nice. Instead, put them in little sealed baggies, envies or something similar.
If sending papers/stickers/beads etc. that are not store-bought please be reasonable. Do not wrap 1 postcard or 3 loose stickers in a bag and think it's okay. I would say at least 5 of that thing, count as 1.
If the stocking cannot be sealed on the top somehow (with tape, zip, button) then please wrap the things inside the stocking OR put some sort of gift wrap/tissue on top of the gifts, so your partner can't see from the top of the stocking what it in the stocking.
Include a note with your package, don't forget to write your name and mention the name of the swap. Include a Christmas card to read when opening the stocking.
When you receive your package, please don't open your stocking and card until it is time for you... christmas eve, christmas day, whatever your tradition. SO when you are rating, you can't be rating on the contents of the stocking, but PLEASE rate when you receive. Do not open the stocking, and feel free to go back & edit your rating once you have opened the stocking.
Have fun. 6 weeks to get this done before deadline. Don't send late!! The dates are made on this swap so that we should have the stockings a month before christmas so we can put them up.
Any questions or suggestions, let me know.
