The thing I love most about the holidays is giving gifts. I get so darn excited I can hardly contain myself! I haven't been involved with a secret santa gift exchange in quite some time, but after joining in on the one Team Etsy Project Embrace organized this year, I though it would be fun to organize one myself amongst blog friends! Most of you are total strangers but you do have one thing in common, you either like my jewelry or enjoy reading my blog. Good enough, right?!
So here's how it will work — From now until this Friday, I will collect the names and addresses of anyone who would like to participate. I will then randomly assign each participant the name of a person you are to send a gift to and you will receive a gift from someone else. Only myself and your secret santa will have your information and everything will be secret until gifts are received!
Gifts can be handmade or purchased, should be valued around $20 (before shipping) and gift wrapped. Please keep in mind you will also need to ship the item and I'll ask that items be shipped by December 17. (If you've never shipped anything internationally, don't be scared! It's easy, you just have to go to the post office and they will help you. It's not even necessarily more expensive, unless you are shipping something heavy.)
Please email your name and address to firstname.lastname@example.org, subject: Secret Santa. Please also include whether or not you are willing to ship internationally. Feel free to include information about yourself — likes, dislikes, favorite colors, favorite Etsy shops, your personal style, hobbies, interests etc, or you can just leave it up to your secret santa to totally surprise you!
I will email you the name of your gift recipient, along with all the important details, by Monday, December 8.
Feel free to contact me anytime with any questions. I think this is going to be tons of fun, and maybe even a new tradition! Happy Holidays, everyone!
p.s. If you leave a comment on this post, please be sure to ALSO send me an email with all the info specified above. thanks!
