**Bloggers' Secret Santa 2013**


I'm pleased to report that I will be running Secret Santa again this year. Last year was almost a total success (we just had one person who signed up but then didn't send anything, but everyone got something in the end).

So, as with last year, here are the rules:

  • Sign up by emailing me (dinoprincesschar(at) with a link to your blog, and your postal details (I will only pass these on to your Secret Santa). Please include anything you think your Secret Santa ought to know - likes, dislikes, allergies..
  • Closing date for sign ups is 10am Friday 1st November 2013. I will then match everyone up and email you with the details of your Secret Santa by 4th November. Unlike the other swaps I've run, this one works like a chain, so you will post to someone, but your present will come from someone else. That's so that your Santa's identity remains a secret...!

  • Then it's time to buy your present. The spend limit will be £5. You'll need to wrap it up and post it (make sure to put a label on to tell your recipient not to open it before Xmas!).
  • Post your parcel by Friday 6th December 2013.
  • Once you have posted your present, please email me to let me know the tracking no, so that the parcel can be tracked in case of any problems. Once you have received your gift, please let me know it's arrived (so I can tick it off, and chase any which are missing).

Please sign up via email (not in the comments section!) and spread the word - the more the merrier! If you want to grab the sidebar button, feel free!

  2. Can't believe it's Secret Santa time already! Sidebar button added :)

  4. Oh I love these things! I'm relatively new to blogging so I hope it's ok for me to sign up, but I love gift giving :D

  5. Is this open to overseas friends? Canada to be exact.
