Mother's Day will be on May 9th this year so I thought why not make a special package for another mother or a mother-to-be!!

This Lucky Parcel will be a Mother's Day package made especially for your partner. On this swap page you will list fifteen things that would make your Mother's Day extra special-anything that would pamper you or just simply make you smile. Your partner will then choose eight items out of the fifteen just for you and place them in a super nice box or bag.

You must send out eight of the fifteen items but if you wish you can always send more-its up to you but not required.

Now please be aware of cost and do not list anything that is hard to find or super expensive. Think real hard about your list. Please be very specific in what you would like bc it will make it so much easier for your partner to shop for you :)

You are to also include a Mother's Day card for your partner with your LP. Please keep your Etsy, Amazon, or other Wishlists up to date as well. That may help your partner out. The cost of this LP can be anywhere from 10-25 dollars--it all depends on you. This is to be an awesome package made from one Mother to another-so think about how nice it would be to receive a package made with care on Mother's Day!

Hope you have lots of fun making this LP. If any officer would like to make a similar LP swap international please feel free to do so.

Happy Mother's Day!!!!! :)
