Description:

This swap is for an inexpensive profile surprise package. It's a fun chance to go shopping for someone else and KNOW that they'll absolutely love what you get them, and be excited by the surprise.

Here are the rules:

Before partners are assigned:
In order for it to BE a surprise, and give your partner the fun of a real shopping experience, please double-check your profile and make sure you have lots of options for themes and types of items you'd love to receive that are priced up to $7.

Once partners have been assigned
You will go to your partner's profile page and do some in-depth research. Read the whole profile. Do they have an etsy or other wishlist? Check it out to see what kinds of things they like for inspiration. Diligently regard and avoid any of their dislikes. Now, you get to go shopping for your partner! The item(s) you choose for your partner should total $5-$7 BEFORE shipping costs. If you're buying online rather than in a local shop, you can often get a bargain on shipping if you buy more than one thing from the same seller. Online sellers will often agree to ship directly to your partner, and add a note if you request it.

If you are shipping direct to your partner from a third party: Please let your partner know once you've paid and their package is shipped, and do let your partner know if more than one parcel is expected, though you can keep the items themselves a surprise.

All group members must maintain well-filled-out profiles and meet the requirement of at least a 4.98 rating to join. In the unlikely event that it's necessary, I will angel this swap after you have attempted to contact your partner and honestly rated a "1" for a no-send.

In order to receive a 5, you must send your partner an item or items totaling at least $5-$7 before shipping which are directly inspired by their profile interests and/or wishlists. Items should be new, not used. Because value is subjective, and has been an issue in other swap-bot swaps, I'm going to say NO handmade items from yourself in this swap (we have lots of others for that--especially our "made for you" series!). Items must be sent by the swap send-by date, and you should let your partner know when you they've shipped if you're using a third party to ship them. Be sure to include a note with your name, your partner's name, and the name of this swap. You aren't required to wrap the gift (though that would be sweet), but please be sure it's packaged in a manner such that it will not be harmed in transit.

Please rate anyone a 5 as long as they meet these criteria. Hearts are of course at your own discretion.

There will be plenty of time to update your wishlist before partner assignment, and a good two weeks to shop once partners have been assigned; however, please do not sign up if you can't make your purchase and ship it out by the send-by date.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns. Have fun swapping! ♥

As @PrincessBedhead has not been able to send out her swap, and 2 weeks have passed, I've arranged to send an angel package to her partner.
