This swap will take time - please do not sign up, unless you want to do your very best to impress your partner! This is about spreading christmas joy

For this swap you will:

  • Take a shoebox (adult size)

  • fill it with christmassy items (see examples below). Remember to wrap everything in christmassy wrapping paper and make sure nothing will break

  • Write a card to your partner with a christmassy greeting

Decorate the shoebox in a christmas theme. Stickers are not enough (but of course you can use them for part of the decorations). Spread some christmas joy to the receiver (and to the mailman delivering it:))

  • Send the shoebox with tracking to your partner

For this swap there is a minimum spencing limit of 10 dollars

Examples of things to send:

christmas ornaments and decorations


Tea/coffee/hot chocolate

a good christmas book

wearables (scarf, socks, earrings...)


paper craft items

... something to make your partner feel the christmas spirit.


  • No 1's (at all, sorry!) and no recent unexplained 3's

  • you must have been a swap bot member for at least 9 months

  • You must be prepared to send internationally

  • you must have completed at least 25 type 3 swaps

  • minimum rating requirement of 4.99

  • I will ban anyone whom I am not comfortable with.

Happy swapping.

If this were reginal, I would join in a hot minute.

Will you be hosting a regional swap like this? I'd love to join a regional one.

I would do regional in USA too. International postage will not be in my budget.

idk , I haven't even did a swap yet. I don't know what is involved, or if I'm allowed to host b4 I have ever swap'd anything?

I am from Europe, this is why it is international. When my swap is over, it would be no problem for me, if one of you would make a regional copy:) happy swapping

If I understand this correctly- you are giving us approval to make "a shoebox of Christmas joy-reginal version"?

GrumpyGrandma 10/24/2020 #

I can't host this...I don't have any points yet

GrumpyGrandma 10/26/2020 #

If this is still unhosted for US when I finally have a rating-I will host one.
