You will make one advent calendar for one partner! Look for some hints on what your partner likes on his profile!

How to make it?


Make them by yourself or decorate some storebought ones. They should have size near A6 (1/4 of A4-normal page) or smaller.

You should write numbers from 1 to 24 on them, of course!


Each of 24 envelopes should contain

1) Christmas/advent/winter-time related quote OR a little quest of a day (like: bake something, make some christmas tree decorations, do something good for your family)

2) At least 1 flat surprise (sticker, ATC, little piece of some nice papier etc.)


You can add a nice rope and decorated clips (like these http://www.bpallen.com/b2b/pics/Christmas_Clips.jpg) so your partner would be able to hang his calendar BUT you don't have to. It's your choice if you would do it or not :)

w a r n i n g! Make sure if your partner likes to have religious related things in his calendar. If not, make it in neutral way. :) I suggest writing in comments below: RELIGIOUS RELATED STUFF IS OKAY/NOT OKAY :)

Don't spend too much money on the calendar. Let's say 3-5$ is enough. Use mostly stuff you find at home. Send something you'd like to receive, things in good condition.

No newbies

No unexplained 1s or 3s

At least 3 type 2 or 3 swaps completed

It's international!

Would small art/craft supplies be ok for gifties? Besides a sticker or two, maybe a small tag, inchie, 1/2 yd of ribbon or fiber, a couple of brads, a charm...a few beads, buttons or other embellishments?

Those are perfect ideas for little surprises! :)

Another version of this swap which is nice and offers a bit more variety has you swapping to 4 people, 6 envies each.

Jester777, which swap is that? I'm interested, but also looking forward to this one, because I can make sure there's a variety for my partner, and can really make it special!

Can anyone read number 1. Under contents? The ad is covering it up for me
