#bloggersecretsanta 2018


How can it be that time again? I'm sure I say this every year. I'm running my annual #bloggersecretsanta parcel swap again this year. It's so weird because I'm such Scrooge and yet I really look forward to this little spreadsheeting and snail mailing task. 

So, if you'd like to take part this year, here's what you need to email or message me with. (Email address is in the sidebar):

  • Your name
  • Your blog / Twitter / Instragram (any or all)
  • Your postal address for a parcel
  • Any likes/ dislikes or things your sender should know about you (allergies etc)

That's all I need, really. Please sign up by 8th November, and I'll pair everyone up using the info you've sent. You won't be sending to the same person you receive a gift from (this works more like a chain) so it's up to you whether you want to reveal your identity to your recipient or not...

I'll send out your partner's details and you'll have a few weeks to take a look at their blogs / social media and put together a parcel. The spend limit for that is £10, not including postage. Then, post your parcel by 14th December, and let me know when you've posted and when you've received a parcel. Couldn't be simpler!

Get in touch if you have any questions. Open to international senders, as always!  (If you're posting internationally, you might need to send it a little earlier than the 14th of December!)

For anyone wondering about GDPR: Please note that I only use your address information to tell your sender where to post to. Unfortunately this can't really be avoided if your sender is to be a secret. I delete all information after the swap has happened and will only use your email address to send you information about your recipient, and to keep you updated with any delays or information. In signing up to this swap, you are giving your consent to my using of your personal data for the execution of this swap. <-- This does mean that if you have signed up in the past, I'm afraid you'll need to send me your details again, as I no longer hold any of them.

Any questions, don't hesitate to contact me!


  1. Hi, it's a lovely idea but I am trying to avoid receiving unnecessary clutter and plastic packaging so I won't be joining in, much as I like choosing presents for someone!

    1. Fair enough. I'm trying to make as many of my presents as possible this year to avoid as much unnecessary packaging as possible.
