Fat Mum Slim gift exchange

Fat Mum Slim /

It’s too early to talking about Christmas, isn’t it? I want to say yes, but really… let’s be honest. It’ll be here before we know it. Last year I held a Social Media Secret Santa where over 100 people participated, swapped gifts and had a lot of fun. So I thought I’d organise it again.

This is how it works: Those who want to participate will sign-up using Elfster. After the sign-up period has finished we’ll move over to the Facebook group to share a little about ourselves. You’ll get an email informing you of who your partner is. You’ll then stalk them in the Facebook group, learning more about them so you can buy them a fabbo gift {to the value of $30 not including postage}. We’ll ask each other random, sneaky questions in the group such as: What’s your favourite colour? Do you like chocolate? You’ll answer and check the responses for your partner’s answer.

♥ This is for people that are active on social media {Facebook page owners, Instagram, Twitter, OR Bloggers etc}. You must have an account that is public and has been active for at least 3 months. I will be checking each person. The reason I do this is to make people accountable. It also makes the experience more social, people can meet new friends online.
♥ You must be willing to be active in the Facebook group and answer at least 5 questions.
♥ The budget is $30 for gift buying. This does not include postage. You can send handmade goodies, but please do not send second hand gifts that you have at home and don’t want. Gifts are meant to be thoughtful.
♥ You must send your gifts by the closing date.
♥ All gifts must be sent by registered post. This keeps people accountable and allows us to track the gifts, in case they get lost.
♥ This is open to people around the world. I will create a document in the Facebook group asking if people are happy to send their gift overseas. I will tee up people willing to send gifts overseas.

♥ Closing dates for sign-ups is November 16th at noon AEST.
♥ Partners will be organised on November 17th. You will receive an email with your partners details including address.
♥ Gifts should be wrapped and sent by December 7th.
♥ Partners will be announced in the Facebook group on December 20th.

The hashtag for sharing photos or tweets etc is #FMSgiftexchange. I can not accept responsibility for any gifts that get lost or for anyone that doesn’t play along properly. Although I will get cranky at you if you pull out and don’t send a gift. It’s annoying and slightly rude.

So if it sounds fun and you want to be involved, I’d love to have you. There are a few different groups to make the sorting process easier {particularly for those who can’t afford to send a gift overseas}.

If you’re willing to partner up with anyone in the world and can send your gift overseas, you’ll need to join THIS group.

If you’re in Australia and only able to send to another person within Australia, please join THIS group.

If you’re in America/Canada and only able to send to another person in America/Canada, please join THIS group.

And once you’ve signed up, head over and join the Facebook group.

Let me know if I’ve missed anything, or if you have any questions at all {post them in the comments}. Looking forward to some fun times again this year. x
