So, it's that time of year again, where even the greatest Scrooge (me!) gets on that tinselly-bandwagon and arranges the annual Secret Santa swap. Are you in?
The rules will be much the same as last year. Sign up by 3rd November by emailing me with:
- your name
- your blog address
- your postal address
- any likes / dislikes and things your sender should know about (allergies etc)
Once sign ups close, you'll then get an email with details of who you will be sending to. As this is a SECRET swap, this won't be the same person who is sending to you, but it's up to you if you'd like to let your recipient know who their gift is from when you send it.
In terms of spend limit, in the past we have set it at £5, but after some feedback last year, I'm wondering about raising that a little. I know it's hard to price handmade gifts, for example and some people were saying that they were struggling to stick to the budget. Plus, things are just more expensive. So the spend limit this year is going to be capped at £10 (or whatever the equivalent is in your country)
For overseas people, you're more than welcome to take part - drop me an email and be sure to let me know if you're OK with sending to another country - last year we had folks from the US, South Africa, France and Germany!
Then, you need to take a look at your recipient's blog, find a gift you think they'll love and post it off to them. The posting deadline will be 8th December. Please be sure to let me know when you have posted and when you have received your parcel, so I can tick things off and chase up any lost parcels.
This swap is always such fun to run and seems to get bigger every year, so please spread the word!
