Do you remember The Twelve Days Of Christmas gifts which Lisa from Jumble and Jelly and I exchanged last Christmas? We each exchanged twelve separate gifts and then opened them one by one on each of the twelve days of Christmas, December 25th through to January 5th. It was a wonderful idea which Lisa had and I thoroughly enjoyed prolonging the Christimas gift opening in this way.
When I mentioned it on my blog, I had quite a few comments saying what a great idea it was so I thought that if enough people wanted to take part this year, I'd organise a swap. What do you think?
I suppose we'd better have some dates and rules so that everyone knows what they're doing.
16th September 2015 - Sign up begins.
30th September 2015 - Sign up ends.
3rd October 2015 - Partners assigned.
5th December 2015 - Parcels to be posted by this date.
25th December 2015 - 5th January 2016 - One gift to be opened on each day between these dates.
You must have a blog to take part.
Leave a comment on this post by 30th September 2015 if you wish to take part. Please state if you're happy to post your parcel worldwide or just in the country in which you reside. I shall do my best to pair everyone up accordingly.
I shall post swap partners on my blog on 3rd October 2015 so please check to see who you're paired up with.
Please introduce yourself to your partner either by leaving a comment on their blog or by email.
Your parcel should contain twelve gifts, wrapped individually so that your swap partner is able to open one on each of the twelve days of Christmas, and should be posted by the 5th of December 2015.
Gifts should be things you'd be happy to receive yourself. You may choose to make some of the gifts if you so wish.
I want the swap to be affordable for people to take part so each gift should cost a maximum of £2, or the total amount spent on all twelve gifts should not be above £20. There's lots of lovely things which can be bought or made for a pound or two, it isn't about the cost, it's about gifting things which your parter will like.
Only one gift should be opened per day starting on the 25th of December 2015 through to the 5th of January 2016.
It would be a nice idea to show the gifts you received on your blog in January.
I hope this covers everything. I'd be very happy for you to mention the swap in a post on your blog so that we can get lots of people joining in. I do love Christmas and I know from my own experience last year how exciting it was to have gifts to open right the way through in to the new year so I do hope you'll all join in.
