I am running this swap for 2016 with the permission of @pobuffy who did it for 2015.

This swap is limited to 12 people, one for each month of the year, and will take place throughout the whole year.

Each month you will send a birthday gift package to the person who has a birthday that month. You will be matched with 11 partners, one for each month (except your birthday month). On your birthday month you should get 11 gifts, one from each person in the swap.

You will get a message on the first of each month to remind you to send a gift and who to send it to. All packages should be postmarked by the 15th of the month to ensure delivery during the birthday recipients month. You must use USPS tracking for this swap, no exceptions.

The gift or gifts you send should be valued between $5 to $7, before postage. Please gift wrap the item(s) you send. Don't forget to put your name and the name of the swap on a birthday card in the package!

Please check your partners profile, Etsy wish list, or Amazon wish list for gift ideas. Be thoughtful with your package so your partners feel special on their birthday! If you want to help your partners with your gift then please make sure you have an Amazon wish list, Etsy wish list, or a well filled out profile.

Because we are all assigned to each other you will be able to rate each swapper. In turn, you will get one rating each month from the birthday recipient! Please rate for all packages received as soon as you get them.

Please use the comments below and post your birthday. If you see that your month is already taken then please post only for the stand-by list.


•No foods or drinks.

•Each package must be postmarked by the 15th of each month to ensure that the birthday recipient gets their gifts during their birthday month. Must use USPS tracking, no exceptions.

•This is a USA swap only!

•No newbies!! Must have a 5.00 rating, I will only make an exception if I know you personally. This means absolutely no 1's or 3's. Must have at least 50 ratings under your belt.

•I will be checking and reserve the right to ban any members/swappers whom I deem questionable for ANY reason.

Happy Swapping!!!

Sorry @me2u but you do not have enough rated swaps yet, you'll need at least 3 more before Monday. If you get them I will be glad to put you in as December. You would receive your presents then instead of June
