This is a USA swap only. Feel free to host your own international one. ALSO - there are a couple of swappers that sometimes join my swap that are from Canada, but have a USA address too....PLEASE CHECK YOUR PARTNERS PROFILE

You will have 1 partner and send one wrapped gift. A gift must cost minimum $1, not including postage. It can be store-bought or handmade. Your gift must be wrapped. Sender's choice. Do not send any food. Your partner may wait until December to open your gift. REQUIREMENT add a tag with your name/swap-bot ID/month in case your partner keeps it wrapped until December and wants to contact you then.

Once again, it's sender's choice. But please, check your partner's wish list and dislikes. No trash, no junk, no dirty/damaged items. You must send only new at least $1-valued wrapped item. NEW REQUIREMENT I've had some complaints that some of the gifts are too big to actually put into a stocking. Please try and send a gift that will actually fit into a stocking.

As long as it meets the swap requirements then please rate a 5, even if it's something you can't use.

You can open your gift once you've received it or you can pop your wrapped gift in your Christmas Stocking till December. It's up to you! But please do rate your partner once you've received it, even if you are going to keep it wrapped till Christmas.

Newbies welcomed, with a well filled out profile (I do check). No recent/unexplained low ratings. NEW Apparently, I now need to add the following: If you are going to be gone within 3 days of partners being assigned and not able to check into swap-bot then you need to contact me and let me know so I don't ban you from the swap. Frankly, I thought this was just good manners, but apparently not.

Now, let's fill our stockings!

Also ~ I live in "Boonyville" Michigan and sometimes our internet connection isn't very good. This is especially true when it rains & in the winter months. So please be patient, partners will get assigned and if needed I will extend the send date.

I like this idea! And thank you for coming up with this cute swap!

@mutantpenguin - I actually didn't come up with it. I found it over a year ago as an international swap and asked the host if I could do the USA swap.

do you send the stocking with the gift?

samjowers 08/ 1/2014 #

can you give a inch size so we know what is "too" big? I don't think mine are, but you never know, my stocking is hand made and holds quite a few gifts!

snpyrunner 08/ 3/2014 #

@samjowers I wouldn't go bigger than the size of a magazine ( and smaller if the object isn't flexible)

@Jodi1982 I sent a second stocking stuffer out to you in today's mail. I will check back with you to see if this one arrives ~ Hope so!
