Description:

This is just like the title says, you are going to be a not so secret Santa!


Amazon and Etsy are highly encouraged, unless you want to go out and find your partner something local to wrap and send directly


--I don't like having to say this, but I am seeing a lot of 3s and 1s going out lately when they shouldn't be. If you check the side panel - View participant, you can see when your partner says they sent things.-- From there add 8 weeks...YES, 8 weeks. The USPS has admitted to slowing down flat rate mail and upping the costs of packages for the holiday season.


Minimum 20$ gift limit, wrapped / not wrapped is up to you.


Guidelines: This should be a gift!

Not some random things from your stash unless it's unopened/nothing missing item.

Should be something you would love to receive

Should require some thought and be tailored to your partners likes.

Ask your partner questions, look at a wish list, read their profile; find your partner a fun Christmas / Holiday Gift


This is a time for you to be creative and! YOU get a month lead time to get something together and send it just in time for the holidays.


Rate a 5 for getting a package with something at least worth 20$ inside. Am hoping that there is communication going on here to make this a yearly thing.


Remember to include somewhere that this if for Christmas/Holiday Gift Exchange.


--I will be checking profiles to ensure success and fun for everyone.--


Everyone will be checked for location, activity, and ratings.

Is it okay to send gift to my partner directly from Amazon or Etsy?

wolfeagle 11/ 8/2021 #

Is it one item valued over $20, or can it be more than one item just totaling $20 value? Is handmade allowed or is it only store-bought items? Are you angeling the swap if someone flakes?

20 dollars plus shipping ? or 20 $ to include shipping ?

Brokenwings87 11/15/2021 #

Wolf yes I will, but with all the high ratings and limits I am sure people won't flake. Remember that shipping takes time.

Bordercolliemom - 20$ gift plus shipping, unless you go direct from amazon or etsy and get the shipping free.

Hi, just wanted to confirm. Can we sent more than one item (several items) to equal the $20 value? Or does it have to be one single item? Thanks!

4.90 isn’t really a high rating requirement. Here’s a good thread about the breakdown of ratings that seem high but actually aren’t.

lovetherain, it can be a lot of items, but should try to avoid the dollar store if possible.
