Welcome to the ULTIMATE EASTER "BASKET" SWAP 2023!!! Easter will be here before we know it, and this is a super fun swap--I hope you can join in!!

Every year I put together fantastic baskets for my family and seldom get one in return...I figure it's the same with many of you ladies! My husband is a sweet man, but he's not all that creative in the gifting department--and while he'll buy me what I ask for, it is not the same thing as being surprised!

This swap will require you to make one fabulous Easter "basket" for your one swap partner!

A minimum of 5 items with a minimum spending limit of $20 before shipping.

Homemade items are most welcome among the goodies.

Food + Candy are welcome as extras but they do NOT count toward the item total.

When you sign up, please give your partner a hand, by placing a comment below with a Wishlist of 10 items or themes you might like to see in your Ultimate Easter "Basket".

You must include 2 items inspired by the list your partner leaves below in their Easter basket.

The "basket" itself, that you put the items in, can be a basket, a tote bag, a purse, tin, eco-bag, decorated box, be creative!! Think about what kind of basket you would like to receive. Make it look good, wrap some of the trinkets, put some love into it!

PLEASE only join this swap if you plan to stick by the mailing guidelines!!! We want everyone to receive their basket in time for Easter. This is why I'm making this a USA-only swap, to ensure shipping time, and also to keep postage down.

Please put some love into this swap! Go by my golden rule of swapping and give to others as you'd like to be given to. You want a mega-watt smile on your partner's face when they open this holiday package from you!

To join the swap you must be a WIYM member in good standing with a 4.98+. Sorry, but no newbies on this one. You must have 40 rated type 3 swaps to join! I will check profiles and ban peeps if I have to.


  • When you sign up--List 10 items or themes you'd like to receive in your Easter Basket.

  • When partners are assigned--Look at your partner's list in the comment section below, check their profile for any dislikes.

  • Send a minimum of 5 items to your partner, at least 2 of which should be inspired by their wish list in the comment section.

  • Spend a minimum of $20.

  • Package Nicely in a "Basket" as described above.

  • Include a note or card with the Swap Name and your User ID so your partner knows who to rate and thank.

I hope this covers it all...Please fire away with any questions below or PM me if there are any concerns! Thanks, Everybody, and Happy Easter!!!
