I enjoy surprises and shopping! So, I thought it would be fun to have a scavenger hunt. You will send one (1) partner at least one item for each letter N. O. E. L. (4 packages in one envelope).

Get creative (ideas for inspiration, only):

N - Nifty note cards, a cute nightlight or nine tea bags

O - Owls, Oodles of lace or one yard of ribbon

E - Eleven buttons or an elephant

L - Little poem, Lighthouse PC or new Lip Balm

Wrap the little gifts in cheerful paper or bags and label each with the letters, N. O. E. & L. (4 smaller packages in one envelope).

This is sender's choice, so you can start right now. But, please read your partner's profile once partners are assigned so you don't send something on her/his allergy or dislike list.

Keep the cost down; check your stash first. But no junk--send something you would be happy to receive. Nice handmade encouraged.

I will be checking profiles; only 4.8 and above, with at least 5 completed and rated package swaps by the sign up date, will be allowed in this swap.

I'm sure this idea is not original, but I didn't see anything similar right now. If I'm missing something, please let me know.

This is US only, due to postage for packages and short turnaround. It is fine with me if someone wants to have an International version.

Is there a minimum spend. I know it's hard since we might be pulling from our own stash or making handmade things, but a guideline would be good, I think.

You are right, ArtyBeth3; it is hard to set a min/max number. Handmade and the thought that goes into a swap are priceless. Having said that and knowing money is tight during the holidays, I'm going to say no one should go out and spend more than $5, because part of the challenge is to think up things to make and/or send from your stash and still send a fun package. I hope this helps.
