This is a USA swap only. There is an International version hosted by @foudre

I have a very busy summer coming on....a couple weddings that we have to travel to, 4 graduation parties, a bridal shower and 3 baby showers and our yearly Labor Day cookout/bonfire for our families. So I'm combining the next 3 months swaps into one. Partner #1 will be July, partner #2 will be August and partner #3 will be September. All 3 months must be sent by July 22

You will have a partner and send one wrapped gift. A gift must cost minimum $1, not including postage. It can be store-bought or handmade. Sender's choice. Do not send any food. Your partner may wait until December to open your gift. NOTE for the months of November and December food is allowed. (Store-bought, wrapped food...like a bag/bar of Christmas candy, a tin of Christmas cookies, etc)

REQUIREMENT Wrap the gift and 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 AND WILL BAN). Because of delivery issues, multi-profiler/flaker concerns, and site policies I require real names. If you join a swap of mine with a fake name or no last name, you will be asked to fix it.

No recent/unexplained low ratings and you must check into swap-bot within 3 days of partners being assigned. PLEASE check out my profile page and read the "About Swaps I Host" section for an in-depth explaination of my swap rules.

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. I have been told that swap hosts have 7 days after the sign up date to assign partners. So please be patient, partners will get assigned and if needed I will extend the dates.

If you know of a bad swapper signed up for this swap, I appreciate being informed, but please DO NOT post to the comment section! Send me a PM and I will deal with it that way.

I also have a Kid's version of this swap

I would like to remind everyone that though this is not a profile based swap to please check your partners profile. PLEASE DO NOT send something that is on their dislikes.

Also....please make sure that the stocking stuffers you send are small enough to fit into a stocking. Remember....bigger isn't always better and good things come in small packages!

Are we sending them all by July 22nd or one each month (July, August, September) on the 22nd?

institches 06/15/2017 #

@tatrchips - You will send all 3 in July

institches 06/15/2017 #

@Jamnj - Thanks, this swap is the one that takes me the most time to go through and check partners. Having all 3 at once will save me some time

This IS or is NOT profile based? You said that we should check profiles, so its kinda confusing...

institches 06/22/2017 #

@susiescottsdale - It is not profile based, but checking your partners dislike list it advised.

Example - in 2015 I received 6 jewelry items. My profile clearly states that I don't wear jewelry and I don't have pierced ears. A half year's worth of swaps that were useless to me, though the thrift store I donated them to was probably happy.

I was very disappointed and almost quit hosting the swap. Then I decided to add the suggestion to check partner's profile. I realize that each year people probably get a couple things they can't use. Like last year I received wine glass charms. I don't drink, but I did give them to my sister who does.

Alot of swaps will state not to send items on your partner's dislike list.

Just to let my partners know, I love everything that is sent to me and if I can't use it myself, I re-gift to someone else. It really is nice to get something that is on your wish list. Makes your day when you are opening all your presents. I will be alone this Christmas, so my stocking will be very important to me.

Sorry for the delay. Cord to the laptop broke. Old eyes can't see well enough to do on the phone. Couldn't find a new cord, so hubby has repaired this one for now
