    2021 Christmas Stocking Swap

    2021 Christmas Stocking Swap Sign Up Thread
    Sign up by midnight on the 13th October 2021
    Swappee ID released by midnight on the 15th October 2021
    Stocking to be received by the 15th December 2021
    Spending - Minimum of £15


    The idea behind this swap is for us all to have some fun by sending out stockings full of goodies to nominated swap partners. The identity of your swap partner will be revealed to you after the sign up list is closed. But this must remain a secret swap up to receipt of the stocking – you may enclose a Christmas card or gift tag to reveal your identity.

    The minimum spend for this year's swap is still £15 - you can bulk up your presents with bits from your own stash - but please remember to send gifts that you would be happy to receive. I shall post details of the swap fairy in the PM with your swappee details and you can use that to find out your swappees desires. All gifts should be individually wrapped. The stockings can be hand-made or shop bought and there are some very reasonably priced stockings available out there. And of course a hand-made card is a must - at this stage of the game it is ok to reveal your identity when you post, so that your swappee is able to say thank you at this stage with further thank yous after the Big Day and will also be able to do your Trader Rating then as this is a direct swap.

    The deadline for signing up for this swap is the 13th October 2021 and I will then draw names and send PMs out detailing your nominated partner before midnight on the 15th October 2021 - so make sure there is space in your PM box for my very important message.

    To take part in this swap you have to comply with the forum minimum requirements and of course the rules regarding the Christmas swaps for this year. All newbies are welcome to join this swap as long as they have the required number of posts and have been on the forum for at least a month. Before I confirm anyone's place on the swap I will need a PM with your name, postal address and a contact telephone number. Please note this swap is open to forum members who live overseas - if you feel unable to post overseas then make me aware of this in your PM and I will do my best to accommodate you. I will be posting the template for the likes and dislikes list a week or so after sign up has closed.

    Parcels to be received by the 15th December 2021 (and I am going to be strict about that this year – so everyone gets to enjoy the swap and there is no stress!) - hopefully that will be early enough to avoid too much of the Christmas rush.

    This year I am going to have to ask you to send them first class recorded or signed for or via a courier and that is so we have a tracking number for your stocking.

    I then need you to send me a copy of your tracking number – with details of whether it has gone via royal Mail or via a courier, this is so that I can monitor the progress of the parcel and do any chasing up. This relieves you of the stress of keeping tabs on your parcels – and allows me to keep control of the swap.

    It is also a good idea to take a photo of all your goodies prior to wrapping. Please make sure to post these out on time or even early so that everyone gets something from Santa on the BIG DAY.

    Due to COVID, there are a couple of things we still need to bear in mind. You will need to put your stocking in a plastic bag (bin liner type thing will do. Then put a signed label on it showing the date of packing. I have no doubt that there will be more than 72 hours between packing and receipt. If you are displaying potential signs of COVID please contact me confidentially for further help and advice.

    So come on everyone it’s been a horrid year so let’s have some fun for Christmas!!!
    Hugs

    Been better, been worse. Coming to terms with a bereavement is so hard (as you know) but we are supporting my son and Granddaughter as best we can. The last few days have been a bit better.
    How are you doing?

    Afternoon ladies, it is a cold one today, so I have succumbed and put the heating on, I usually wait until the 1st of October but as that's only tomorrow I gave in. Anyone else got their heating on or is it just me? xxx
