It is a combination.
So participants can put in items that are related to Easter and Spring.
But, if someone does not celebrate Easter and would only like Spring items, they can list that for their pal.

I will not be hosting one, and as far as I can remember, I am the only one that I had done the Easter basket exchange last year.
So come and join us Nancy.

I will think about it. I haven't been shopping around here in a couple of weeks, so I don't know what is available.
I would want to do spring though, and not Easter.....yet ;)

I won't have this problem. I usually give up chocolate for Lent (except for my morning cup of Hot Chocolate, but that doesn't count, not chocolate candy). Well, I decided to give up the chocolate a little early this year and did so last week. I have made it 9 days so far :cool1: , wish me luck, I only have 75 days to go :lmao: That is why I joined this exchange, I am probably going to need a lot of candy by that time and I am hoping to get a bunch of it.

In my area, stores like Walmart and Kmart does not yet have their Easter and Spring things out, but other stores and craft stores may have, so it depends on what stores you go to. I think Walmart and such may take out their inventory right after Valentines Day.


If anyone else wants to join in, please send me your info. since I will be closing this exchange in the morning.

Do you usually have adults exchange with adults and kids w/kids? I was kinda surprised to get a kid. My 18 yr old DD is participating so I am shopping with her. It is not a problem but I am curious since this is only my 3rd exchange in 3 yrs. I assume this was different because hardly anyone signed up for easter exchange? Thanks-Di

Meriweather
01-26-2007, 09:23 AM
I know in the Valentine we only have 2 kids, so they are mixed in.
If there are enough, I do kid with kid, but that isn't always possible.

I didnt understand what you meant. I assumed you would pair adult /adult and kid/kid. Live and learn;) I have already started shopping. The hardest part for me is finding a container that will ship well.
