Christmas Stocking Sent/Received thread (This exchange is complete! Thanks!)

**This is an exchange for past and present members of the DIS Girls-Only Disneyland trips.**


It's the most wonderful time of the year.... Time again for the DIS Divas' annual Christmas stocking exchange!




Some of you are familiar with the exchanges already. If you are not, please take a moment to read the info below. If you have done the exchanges before, feel free to skip ahead to the "Important Information" and "Sign-up Info". Thanks.

These exchanges are just a fun thing for those interested.
For each exchange there is a minimum dollar amount that you must spend, which does not include shipping, or any little "extras" that you may wish to include.
Once sign ups are complete, each Diva who signed up will receive the name of a person to exchange with. You will not be sending to the same person you receive from. Then the fun begins! Simply go shopping for items that fall within the Christmas theme, send it out by the mail by date, and then wait for your package to arrive.
Each exchange takes approximately a month to complete from start (sign ups) to finish (all packages accounted for). If you will be on vacation during the shipping and receiving times, please make arrangements for someone else to mail your package and/or to receive yours. Remember to post on the thread when you've shipped your package out. Also post when you get your package, who sent it, and if possible please post a photo.




*Important Rules and Information - Everyone please read*
Sign-ups will run now through the morning of November 8th. Names will go out later that day.
Mail-by date is November 23rd.
Minimum dollar amount is $25 before shipping. That DOES include the cost of the stocking, but it does NOT include any extras or freebies should you choose to include them. You can either choose a nicer, more expensive stocking and spend less on the items inside, or you can get a dollar store stocking and spend more on the items inside. The choice is yours.
I strongly suggest getting delivery confirmation when mailing your package.
This exchange will be for adults only.
Once you receive your package, post here that you received it, but DO NOT OPEN IT.

We will be opening all our packages together on the same day, Tuesday, December 6 @ 7:00 p.m. (sooner if ALL packages arrive before then)




*Sign-up Information*
IF you are interested in joining, please PM me with the following information either here or on Facebook:

Name ~
DIS Name ~
Address ~ (please double check this, as I will only copy and paste as it is sent to me)

Are you able to be an "Elf" if needed? Yes or No (this is in the event that someone who signed up is unable to send out their package. I would then ask an "Elf" to send out another package so no one is left out)

Are you able to ship to Canada? Yes or No

Do you celebrate a religious (birth of Christ) or secular (Santa Claus) Christmas, or both?
What are some of your favorite Christmas snacks/candies?
What are some Christmas items you are able to use? (For example: scrap booking items, things to decorate the house or tree with, baking items, etc)
Any allergies, food or otherwise?
Any hobbies or items you collect?
T-shirt size?
Is there anything that you really prefer not to receive?
Is there anything you'd really love to get?

*Feel free to include any additional information you think would be helpful to your person when they shop for you. (keep in mind the final exchange selections are left up to your sender)

I want to do this one, it's my favorite time of the year. I have to think about it though. We had a few unexpected expenses pop up for the month of November. This is one of those times I hate being an adult.

I'll come back in a day or so either way.

There is so much Christmas stuff in the stores already! That's one good thing about this exchange, it's much easier to shop for than the Halloween one just in the sheer volume of choices and fun items to pick from.
