    What did you get for your fellow agent? Did you go over $10? :) Did you spend under $10? :sad2:

    What did you receive?

    Are you going to do it again next year?

    I got a $10 gift card (from a rest. she said she liked) that was shipped free along with a free Christmas card. I haven't received my gift yet. I was surprised at how much I had in common with the person I got paired with. Depending on finances, time, etc., I will probably do it again next year if offered.

    I used two $10 LLBean certificates I had gotten for some larger orders and applied them towards a $35 personalized fleece throw, with free shipping and no tax, ended up costing me $15, right in my price range for something worth more than $15.

    I can't even get my swap's info to find anything out. I've tried to contact her twice already and I don't want to keep emailing her. Time is running out.

    I got mine today but to be honest I don't think she spent $10. It's a tiny christmas canvas tote that flashes lights. I mean really small that not even a wallet to fit in. I had to put 3 aaa batteries myself. Not complaining but it's really for a child not an adult. Oh well, it's the thought that counts anyway. I received it in a plain yellow envelope. I sent her a CVS $10 card inside a really nice Hallmark card. I'm not sure I'll do this again next year, budget wise I could of gotten that giftcard for his music teacher.

    I mailed mine out on Sunday from the self serve kiosk at the PO. I sent an exactly $10.00 item from Vera Bradley (not the clearance ones) that I picked up at the little shop I went to to return my bag. I chose a dark neutral color that would go with pretty much any neutral bag. Hopefully she likes it, but it is the thought that counts and I did put thought into it! I always use the rule don't gift it if you wouldn't want to receive it so I followed that and hopefully I will not disappoint.

    I sent my swap a scentstories player from Yankee Candle and a scentstories disc
    The player I got on sale for $10 and the discs were buy 2 get 1 free -
    It was something I had bought but couldn't decide who to give it to.

    It did cost me $14 to ship though! :scared1:

    I sent my match-up a Vera Bradley hipster that I got on sale at our local Hallmark for only $10! What a great find :woohoo: ... I almost kept it for myself, but I got caught up in the spirit of giving.
    She is a young mom, so hopefully she will enjoy it!

    Yikes, I need to go shopping today. I am armed with my 40% off one item coupon from the Hob Lob. She likes cross stitch...is there a difference between cross stitch and counted cross stitch??

    I went a little over $10. I am sending a pack of yankee candle tealight(eggnog) and a small votive holder. I also am sending a burt's bees wristlet with a chapstick, bath salts and hand salve. I hope she likes it. Now I have to see how much it will be to ship...

    I got my match a christmas blanket (very soft) with a matching christmas mug and I put 3 different kinds of hot coco in the mug and a 2pack of those REALLY soft cozy slipper socks and a great big candy cane. I hope she likes it! I spent a bit over $10 (probably $15-$20) and shipping was almost $10.. had to use a big box to fit the blanket.

    I got my match a Hallmark photo album. $9.00 because I purchased 3 Hallmark cards. It was something I would like to receive, & she didn't send me any ideas so I wasn't really sure what to get. $6 to ship.

    I received a $10 gc to chilis which DH and I will put to good use. I sent mine out on Monday and got her the bowls from hallmark, a YC misletoe votive and a votive holder. A little over $10 but not too bad. I hope she likes it when she gets it.

    Add another one. I emailed her on Monday and nothing. It is seriously my kind of luck to have this happen. :rotfl2:

    The thing that is quite annoying....she had to log into bzzagent in order to accept the campaign. I know she got my contact info. What the heck?? Why bother accepting if you're not going to follow through?

    I'm a budget shopper...................

    Today, I ordered my swapper a ceramic Santa Claus figurine that plays music by Elements on Amazon.com - was $24.99, marked down to $4.86, no tax and free shipping, will be delivered tomorrow.

    I thought it was a very nice gift and I didn't have to leave the office or pay for shipping and it's worth way over $10.00. :)

    That would be helpful, however I looked on myspace and she is in Michigan. Thanks though!
