*** THIS EXCHANGE IS NOW CLOSED ***

Does anyone fancy a quick exchange for Valentine's Day ? The Easter exchange isn't till March, so if you'd like to receive a little gift in the post in the next couple of weeks, then come and join in

http://bestsmileys.com/love1/3.gif

So if you would like to join in, then send me a PM with your full name and address and a few ideas of what you like/dislike (for example your favourite Disney characters, chocolate, smellies etc or dislike Valentine's Day :rotfl2: )

This exchange will only be open till Friday 6th February, and you will need to try and send your gift out as soon as you can (hopefully in time for Valentine's Day) ~ the rules are at the bottom of this thread

So come and join in, it should be fun, and it might take our minds off this rubbish weather ;)

Mandy http://bestsmileys.com/love2/5.gif

The rules are :-

1. To buy a present for no less than 7.50 (before postage)
2. To wrap and send the present out around 12th February
3. To send the present by 1st Class Recorded Delivery (as parcels have gone missing in the past and you are then able to chase it up with the Post Office), if you don't choose this method and the present goes missing, then you must send out another present
4. You can join this exchange until 6th February, then I will send out your recipient's details (the earlier you join in, the sooner I will send you the details)
5. This exchange is open to all members of the UK Community Boards.
