Christmas, the season of giving, is coming and what better way to celebrate it than to give someone a wonderful gift that will blow them away even before they open the packaging!
This swap not only focuses on the things you send, but on the packaging as well. If you love receiving and sending pretty packages filled with lovely items, then this swap is for you!
You will have 1 partner that might be international (so please take this into consideration before you sign up). You will have 3 weeks to find items for your partner, wrap them up and mail them.
Your package should be worth US$10 (or more) before shipping. That means you can spend US$10 on gifts as well as packaging but please use your discretion. Don't spend more on packaging that on the gifts themselves.
If you own a shop, please do not just send US$10 worth of goods from your shop. However, do feel free to include an item or two in addition to the other goodies you will be getting your partner.
Some ideas of things you can include in your package: jewelry, scarves, pouches, bags, wallets, candles, bath items, note cards, notebooks, stickers, packaging supplies, stuffies, amigurumis, vintage goods, anything you think your partner would love to receive. You may want to check their profile and wishlists (etsy and the like) to get an idea of what they like. Please ensure that your profile is well-filled out! I will be checking!
Wrap the items up creatively, using your imagination. You need not wrap each item up individually but don't just dump everything into a box and tie a ribbon around it.
Once you've wrapped your items up, put your prettily dressed up packages into an envelope or box for shipping. Secure your package well so that they reach your partner safe and sound.
Strictly no newbies as this is a high-cost swap, sorry! If you would like to do a private swap with someone, please feel free to do so. If you would like to do a private swap with me, please send me a message.
I will be monitoring this swap closely as I would like everyone to receive a nice package. And also, it's the Christmas season, so please don't disappoint anyone. If you see anyone suspicious signing up for this swap, please let me know. Help me make this a great swapping experience for everyone!
I know that the rules are pretty strict, but I stand by them as I would like everyone to not only receive their packages, but to love them as well!
