Every year I buy one of those chocolate advent calendars and I’m sick and tired of it. The perfect Christmas gift is an advent calendar thats specifically made for me!! Also please read the whole post before joining.

In this swap you will have ONE partner that you will send 25 little gifts all wrapped and numbered 1-25. You will read your partners profile and then determine which little gifts to buy/make for them. Wrap each days little gift with wrapping paper or holiday envelopes and number them 1-25. Gift #25 should be the most important gift (one you spent the most on, worked the hardest on, or think your partner will love the most). A minimum of $20 is set. Try to stay in this range (and stay in your own personal budget!). You may spend more if you want. Just make sure all the things you bought/made are valued at a minimum of $20 all together

Please try not to send 3 of the same little gift (EX: day #1 #8 and #10 are all 2 postcards wrapped in wrapping paper). Basically just try to have a nice variety. You can find a good example of a five day advent calendar at the bottom of this post.

Examples of little gift ideas are:


-book marks

-note cards

-hot chocolate or tea (factory sealed)


-socks (new with tags)

-make a friendship bracelet

-vintage playing cards

-vintage postage stamps

-unused forever stamps

-a couple pages from a letter writing set with matching envelope

-lip gloss (new)

-paper empherma

-wax seal stamps/wax

-small decorated journal

-washi tape


-art supplies

-a mug

Be sure to include a Christmas card with the name of the swap and your swap-bot username. I want to make sure everyone gets their package BEFORE December 1st. PLEASE DO NOT SEND LATE! It is very important that you take note of the swap date and make sure to send your package BEFORE or on the day of the sent by date.

MUST have a 4.95 rating with NO 1’s or 3’s in the past year. Have at least 15 type 2 swaps completed. you MUST have a well filled out profile to enter this swap. NO NEWBIES OR UNRATED SWAPPERS. If you enter and your swap doesn’t tell much about you I will kindly message you to add more info. If you do not you will be kicked out of the swap. If you did not receive anything I will angel once you rate your partner appropriately. I do not want to have to do this because then you will probably not receive your package before December 1st.

If you have any questions please message me!! If you don’t meet the requirements and want to do a private swap you can message me and i’ll arrange one (unless you seem super suspicious, send late often, or have a very recent and deserved 1 or 3)!!


TL;DR: (well first of all please read everything), read your partners whole profile and determine what they like and dislike. Buy or make 25 different small gifts with the value of at least $20 (spend more if you want, stay in your personal budget, make sure all the items you send are valued at at least $20). Wrap each of your 25 gifts in wrapping paper and number them 1-25. Try to make #25 the biggest or best surprise for your partner. Don’t ship your packages late.

Here is an example of five days:

day 1- a roll of washi tape; day 2- 2 postcards; day 3- 2 unused forever stamps; day 4- a hot chocolate packet; day 5- washi tape samples
