Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way!!! Time for the annual Christmas PRESENT Exchange!!! This is an exchange where you send your pal one or two items for them to enjoy. -(if you prefer a bunch of smaller presents, take a look at the Stocking Exchange). For this exchange, you will send your pals gifts either gift wrapped, in a gift bag, or in any other type of gift giving fashion. You will also attach a card to the present to wish your pal a Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays..... and please do not forget to include your user name so that the sender knows who to thank. This is a $15.00 exchange before shipping charges. Please remember to secure your boxes well so that we do not have any packages damaged/opened upon arrival. Delivery confirmation is REQUIRED. YOU MUST PM ME THE D.C. NUMBER AS SOON AS YOU HAVE SENT OUT YOUR EXCHANGE. AND POST HERE AS SOON AS YOU HAVE RECEIVED YOUR EXCHANGE. I WILL BE KEEPING TRACK OF ALL MAILINGS. If you will be away during the exchange period, please let me know of your dates ASAP. PLEASE ONLY SIGN UP IF YOU ARE ABLE TO FOLLOW THE RULES, AND MAIL OUT ON TIME. PLEASE CHECK ONTO THE BOARDS OFTEN...I DO SEND OUT PMS, OR POST MESSAGES ON THE THREAD, SO SEE IF THERE IS ANYTHING FOR YOU FROM ME, OR ANYONE ELSE. For this exchange, it is a bit different then any other. Once you have received your exchange-DO NOT OPEN IT! We will be having an OPENING PARTY on Saturday December 1st! This means that you will hide your present if you are tempted to open it, until this day. I will then post a new thread called OPENING PARTY-the day before, and on 12/1, you will open your present, and post on that thread, what present you had received. Make it a fun day by playing Christmas music, baking some Christmas cookies, drinking some hot chocolate, ..... *the opening party has been a tradition for years now for this present exchange*. *** And if you will not be here for the opening party, that is fine. Just open your present when you return, and post on that thread.
