This is a USA swap only. Feel free to host your own international one.

ALSO - there are a couple of swappers that sometimes join my swap that are from Canada, but have a USA address too....PLEASE CHECK YOUR PARTNERS PROFILE

You will have 1 partner and send one wrapped gift. A gift must cost minimum $1, not including postage. It can be store-bought or handmade. Your gift must be wrapped. Sender's choice. Do not send any food. Your partner may wait until December to open your gift. NOTE for the months of November and December food is allowed.

REQUIREMENT add a tag with your name/swap-bot ID/month in case your partner keeps it wrapped until December and wants to contact you then.

Once again, it's sender's choice. But please, check your partner's wish list and dislikes. No trash, no junk, no dirty/damaged items. You must send only new at least $1-valued wrapped item. NEW REQUIREMENT I've had some complaints that some of the gifts are too big to actually put into a stocking. Please try and send a gift that will actually fit into a stocking.

As long as it meets the swap requirements then please rate a 5, even if it's something you can't use.

You can open your gift once you've received it or you can pop your wrapped gift in your Christmas Stocking till December. It's up to you! But please do rate your partner once you've received it, even if you are going to keep it wrapped till Christmas.

Newbies welcomed, with a well filled out profile (I DO CHECK AND WILL BAN). No recent/unexplained low ratings. PLEASE check out my profile page and read the "About Swaps I Host" section for an in-depth explaination of my swap rules.

Also ~ I live in "Boonyville" Michigan and sometimes our internet connection isn't very good. This is especially true when it rains & in the winter months. I have been told that swap hosts have 7 days after the sign up date to assign partners. So please be patient, partners will get assigned and if needed I will extend the send date.

If you know of a bad swapper signed up for this swap, I appreciate being informed, but please DO NOT post to the comment section! Send me a PM and I will deal with it that way.

Had a great time doing this last year and received really nice gifts! Looking forward to doing it again.

@rifkasorah - yes as stated in swap description, your partner may wait to open in December. They will rate you a 5 as long as it has been received.

I waited to open mine and I went back to each month's swap, found my partner, and posted a Thank You to their profile page for what ever the gift was

institches 01/24/2015 #

@Kimber - I received some nice ones too. And a few things I would have never bought for myself.

what kind of items make for good stocking stuffers, for ideas for the rest of the year, I have a few of my own but I want to make sure I am on the right track with my ideas.

institches 01/28/2015 #

@vichaletta - it doesn't matter, as long as it is worth at least $1. I have received notepads, ornaments, lotion, necklaces, etc.

I'm just wondering how many people have done these before and waited til Christmas to open their gifts...I think it would be more fun to do that so that's how I would go with it. Anyone?

kdeorne1 01/31/2015 #

Hello. I am new. I was wondering if my profile is okay.

Maleficentnme 01/31/2015 #

I am new to swap bot, please tell me where to find the swap bot ID for the tag?

institches 02/ 1/2015 #

@fiennesgirl - I started this swap in June 2013. I saved all mine and opened Christmas Day then. I saved all mine from 2014 and opened after New Year this yes (busy and didn't get a chance until then) Which made it more fun to open them after Christmas, just made the season a little longer

institches 02/ 1/2015 #

kdeore1 - yup, you're in! And welcome to swap-bot!

institches 02/ 1/2015 #

@Maleficentnme - I'm not sure what you are asking(?)

Maleficentnme 02/ 3/2015 #

No worries my friend answered my question. Thanks

I've been sick in bed for a week and unable to go out. I'm sorry! Not flaking..... :)

Woops! Marked mine as sent late but it was sent on time. I messaged my partner her tracking number the day it was sent out but forgot to mark it as sent on here!
