So, I have participated in a few swaps recently and loved them! You see I don't feel the least bit guilty shopping for someone else and Mr. Molly Lou can't say a word as I am shopping for a gift and then get something in return. You see where I am going with this...GUILT FREE SHOPPING! YAY!
So, I was thinking and chatting with my friend A about a "Christmas in July" swap. She said it wasn't cheesy and would be fun! Again, I love to shop for other people and I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Christmas, so why not combine the two???
Here's how it will work. I will pair you up with a partner. You will shop for your partner and spend no more than $30 (not including shipping). You will mail your package to your swap partner with a postdate of no later than July 25 (Christmas in July!). The gifts don't have to havea Christmas theme, but should be wrapped up so your partner can unwrap and be just as excited as a child on Christmas morning. Wrap doesn't have to be holiday paper. We can all get so creative and cute with this!
You and your partner are free to share likes/dislikes to help with your shopping trip and the gifts don't have to have a theme.
If you are so excited to participate, comment on this post and leave me your email address. We will set partners on July 11th, giving you two weeks to shop for and ship your packages to your partners.
I know this is a bit cheesy, but it's also fun. Also, it is so flipping hot outside that perhaps if we pretend it's Christmas that we can stop sweating for three seconds. :) Come on, join us and have fun! Feel free to post and/or tweet about this to extend the love to more friends. Cheers!
