Description:

It's that time of the year again! ;-)

Do you want to have a super special advent calendar this year? I do! I did this swap-series last year and it was so much fun that I decided to host it again. Going to start early (6 seperate swaps from August to November), so we will end up with a wonderful and unique Advent Calendar on December 1st. You can join all six swaps or a few, it is totally up to you.

DAY 1 TO 4

In this swap you will send FOUR items to ONE person. Wrap every item individually and put the numbers 1 to 4 on the wrapped items.

Items do not have to be pricy. But please make sure they fit your partner’s profile. This is not the time to get rid of unwanted items you keep hoarding. ;-)

Here are some ideas: food / stationery items / bookmarks / washi tape / sticker sheets / keychains / blank postcards / books / notebooks / christmas treats. Or anything else you can think of.

Most important: Try to put a smile on your partner’s face! Please make sure you only send items you think your assigned partner would like. Read their profile thoroughly and pick whatever fits their personality and likes.

Please leave a rating of 5 as soon as you receive your items. You may unravel it immediately but I'd advise you to save it and open them one day at a time from December 1st on. Rating a heart is totally up to you.

Remember to have a well filled profile. I will check them before assigning the partners. No unexplained 1s or 3s. At least ten Type 2 or 3 swaps with good ratings (5 or 5 with a heart).

Make sure your country can receive (non-flat) packages from and send small non-flat packages within Europe.

P.S.: YES, this swap and all the others in this series of Advent Calendar swaps are Type 3. So actually it's meant to be a package. Not only flat items. That's why it says in the description to make sure your country can receive small non-flat packages from and send small non-flat packages within Europe.

But if the items you choose are all profile based and match your swapping partner's likes and happen to be flat items only... that's okay too. Please don't rate down if this happens. Personally I always send out packages or at least big envelopes where I could fit a book in but that's not mandatory.

I just got asked some questions about this swap and wanted to share the answers in case someone else wonders...

Do the items all have to be new and store bought? - Not as long the items you have at home and would like to share with your partner are in mint condition (or vintage and your partner likes that).

Is it possible, for example if some likes blank postcards or letter sets, to pick some from my collection and wrap them? - Again... if your your partner likes those things... anything goes.

And teas, as another example, instead of buying a whole new package of 20 teabags, is it possible to take maybe 4 individual teabags for one day and wrap them as one present? - Of course it is!

But remember that it's a type 3 swap. I'd say put at least one store bought aka bigger item in.
