This swap is for an inexpensive profile surprise package🎁. It's a fun chance to go shopping for someone else and KNOW that they'll absolutely love what you get them and be excited by the surprise.

Here are the rules:

Before partners are assigned:
In order for it to BE a surprise, and give your partner the fun of a real shopping experience, please double-check your profile and make sure you have lots of options for themes and types of items you'd love to receive that are priced up to $7.

Once partners have been assigned
🧐You will go to your partner's profile page and do some in-depth research. Read the whole profile. Is there a link to Etsy favorites or other wishlists? Check these out to see what kinds of things your partner likes for inspiration. Diligently regard and avoid any dislikes. Now, you get to go shopping for your partner! The item(s) you choose should total $5-$7 BEFORE shipping costs. If you're buying online rather than in a local shop, you can often get a bargain on shipping if you buy more than one thing from the same seller. Online sellers will often agree to ship directly to your partner, and add a note if you request it.

If you are shipping direct to your partner from a third party: Please let your partner know once you've paid and their package is shipped, and also if more than one parcel is expected, though you can keep the items themselves a surprise.

In order to receive a 5, you must send an item or items totaling at least $5-$7 before shipping which are directly inspired by your partner's profile interests and/or wishlists. Items should be new, not used. Because value is subjective, I'm going to say NO handmade items from yourself in this particular swap (we do and will continue to have other swaps for that). Items must be sent by the swap send-by date, and you should let your partner know when they've shipped if you're using a third party to ship them. Be sure to include a note with your name, your partner's name, and the name of this swap. You aren't required to wrap the gift 🎁(though that would be extra-sweet), but please be sure it's packaged in a manner such that it will not be harmed in transit.

Please rate anyone a 5 as long as they meet these criteria. ❤️Hearts❤️ are, of course, at your own discretion.

There will be plenty of time to update your profile and/or wishlists before partner assignment, and ten days to shop once partners have been assigned; please do not sign up if you can't make your purchase and ship it out by the send-by date.

All group members maintain well-filled-out profiles and meet the requirement of at least a 4.98 rating to join. In the extremely unlikely event that it's necessary, I will angel this swap after you have attempted to contact your partner and honestly rated a "1" for a no-send.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.

📫 Have fun swapping! 🙂

@phillaine Hi there, I just joined = gr8 joy indeed! So only 1 or even more items are ok, even ordered & shipped directly?

phillaine 09/17/2019 #

Yes! So long as the one item is $5 - $7 before tax and shipping, or your multiple items (if you choose that option) add up to $5-$7 before tax and shipping. If you have them ordered and shipped directly, you should PM your partner and let them know where their surprise(s) will be shipped from.

for example: I want to order a few rolls of washi tape for my partner in her favorite themes, and I want them shipped directly to her. I go to an online shop and choose 4 different kinds of washi that I know she'll like, each priced at $1.50 before tax and shipping. After placing my order, I send her a note to expect her surprise from "SweetSuppliesStore" on Etsy (or wherever I bought them from).

Let me know if there's any confusion. :) I hope this helps!
