Thanks to @romyisa78 for allowing me to host a US verso . She came up with the original. To quote her description with some add-ins of my own:

You have to wrap for your Partner 24 little gifts and give them numbers from 1 to 24. It dont have to be big things but take a little effort and make your partner Happy. Please Read its profiles about dislikes. I dont want to make a Price Limit. And handmade things are also Welcome. But Please so not fill in every package the same. I Think your Partner would Not be Really Happy if he has Everyday a bag of Tea Inside. A few examples to put in : Stickers, Washi, Soap, Chocolate, Christmas Deko, a poem, Seeds, music, the list ist Endless Just make your partner a Happy Time until Christmas. Oh and also put a little message inside with the swap Name and your Name. Please Rate a 5 if you get 24 little presents and also nicely wrapped and numbered. Any questions? Feel free to ask.

So for the breakdown, you will send your partner 24 little gifts numbered in the order you want them opened. This is both sender's choice and profile based. Take a look at your partner's profile and especially their dislikes.

Send your partner different things. Handmake some presents but don't handmake all of them. Send a candy but not candy for all days. You get the idea.

Because this can be a costly and time intensive swap, no newbies, 1s, or 3s. I will be checking every profile to make sure it is well filled out. You must have at least 30 type 3 swaps. I cannot angel which is why the rules are so tight. But let's have fun with it!

There is no time between partners assigned and send date. I'm interested but not if I have no time to check profiles before sending.

Also it's not senders' choice if it's profile based at all. Those are mutually exclusive. Normally senders' choice means you do not need to take your partners' preferences into account.

This is a pretty risky swap not to angel. The type that will appeal to flakers and scammers. It's likely at least one participant will do a nice job for their partner and get nothing in return which is a huge bummer, especially if you're unwilling to angel.

I love the idea of the swap! I will join if the details mentioned above get worked out.

Wow, okay. I just returned to Swap Bot and didn't realize people changed so much. I made a mistake in the dates as I'm doing this on my phone. I've joined many swaps where the host wasn't able to angel and I've hosted all successful swaps in the past without the ability to angel. These are chances everyone takes and just because I can't angel doesn't mean there's going to be a scammer, that's pretty presumptuous.

Plenty of time now to create these gifts & I see strict guidelines to join. I'm in! :D YAY!

Ok guys - I have no problem being an angel if the need arises. Leave poor Peachapatchi alone! Just being the host is hard work enough! I'm going to put together two sets of advents so that I will have one ready to send if there is a need.

@AliCrafter Thank you for standing by me, and that's so generous of your to offer to angel, I'll do my best to make sure it's not needed.
