10 Merry Little Gifts Of Yule

I don't really celebrate Christmas but I thought it would be nice to have a December gift exchange. I'm going to call it a Yule swap because many people give gifts this time of year not just on one day. This is a large swap asking for more than I normally do for a swap. Since its a public swap there will enough requirements to keep things safe for everyone. I know I sound like a grouchy old lady, which I am but I want to have a public gift swap.

10 little new store bought gifts not bigger than about the size of the palm of your hand to your partner, each gift individually wrapped with gift paper or in a gift box. I mean stocking stuffer sized gifts, little things. Dollar store presents are fine, calendars, little toys, etc. Your gifts have to be new store bought and cost at least one dollar. Don't buy a large package of something and only send part of it. No homemade gifts, no food or beverages and no cosmetics. Sender's choice but please be respectful if your partner has any dislikes. Not all people read profiles so if there is something you would really not want to receive please list it in the comments below. This is "senders choice" so don't rate down if you don't like your presents.

I ask for small gifts so you can keep down costs but if you choose to send larger gifts it is up to you.

The requirement is 10 small store bought presents each wrapped or boxed by itself. Minimum dollar amount is $10 before postage.

No homemade gifts, no food or beverages and no cosmetics or personal products.

If you choose to add homemade gifts in your swap you may but they are extra and do not count twords the 10 gifts.

I want to keep this swap free of flakes, slow senders and non raters so the requirements are a bit tough.

Joining requirements. Please read.

U.S.A addresses only.

You must be a member of swap-bot over 6 months.

You must be an active member of swap-bot over the course of 5 months, no unexplained or unanswered 1 or 3 ratings.

You must have been rated for 30 type 3, actual package swaps to join. If most of your type 3 ratings are for ratings boosters swaps that are not really what I consider type 3 swaps you may not qualify to join.

You must check on swap-bot within 3 days of signup date.

I reserve the right to ban anyone with or without notice for any reason or no reason at all.

I expect people to send on time and there is plenty of time to send your swap. Any problem swappers will be listed in the PF for such folk. I do monitor if people send on time and contact their partners if they run late some folks may not like that but it is my job as host.

Communication with your partner is important if you run late. With that much time to send if you run late its poor planning on your part.

Please be considerate in what you send. Any strong dislikes please mention in comments. Any questions please ask.

The dates are such everyone should get their gifts prior to December. ; ) Please rate promptly after getting your swap.

Would you consider lip balm and purse size hand lotion as cosmetics?

Watching for now.....

starhiker 09/20/2017 #

@institches yes I would they are like cosmetics they are more like personal products that gift type things.

Hi it says you must be a member for 6 months? Een if you have completed enough swaps and have great ratings? Watching........

starhiker 10/17/2017 #

The reason for the time period is I want established swappers and 6 months is long enough for ratings to catch up with swaps sent. I want to see a proven track record of good sending.

With all the ratings boosters swaps going on, it is unfortunately so easy to join a bunch of swaps that are called type 3's when actually they are not. I'm not saying this is your case @uhohbabyos but this requirement will keep people out who put forth just minimal effort to get their ratings in a short time. I don't want a big swap I want a safe swap where I don't have to angel.

Tis the season check out this link for good info about Christmas season swaps.
