This is our first Christmas themed swaps and we really wanted to make it special!

You will pick up a small box (you can also do yourself) in which you're going to send at least 3 of your (1) partner wishes PLUS a gift surprise you'll choose after reading their whole profile. You need to warm it up wrapping all your gifts in a cool Christmas paper! Also you'll ADD some treats - like chocolate, candies or whatever you think your partner would love to receive- according to their likes and special needs. In the end, you'll write your Christmas greetings to your partner on a store-bought card including the name of the swap and your Swap-bot ID.



Some clarifications:

  • The budget for this swap is not less than 10€ not including the shipping fees. Any extra is up to you.

  • All the items must be NEW and store-bought (if you're going to buy something online, make sure you'll easily respect the send-out deadline);

  • If you want to send some extra handmade you're allowed to, but don't consider that as part of the budget or a point on the gift list. If you'll miss something you should be rated as a 3 so keep that in mind.

  • The box should contain your gifts properly, according to its total weight and your post office requirements. You can also decorate it for Christmas, warming up your partner's mailbox!

  • While wrapping the presents, consider that your partner may will be expecting to put them under the Christmas tree: *"take your time and put your all efforts in everything you do**. (You can find a plenty of ideas easy to make on sites like Pinterest)

  • You have all the time to make this swap unforgettable. Any questions you have, don't hesitate to ask to your partner! Sometimes this really make the difference.


This swap is only for European swappers with an immaculate average of 5.0 under their belt. Newbies are not allowed, sorry. Only users with at least 15 swaps completed (combined between type 2-3) are allowed to join. Also, be sure you're providing your current address on here, well fixed in all its parts.
