Welcome to the 2012 Holiday Gift Exchange.
This year gift swap will be different in terms of being an open swap, and more on the lines of a holiday grab bag.
Each participant will choose a literary genre and buy either your favorite book, or a book you have found the most joy in giving to others. The book must be either trade paperback or hardcover. You should then pair the book with other small items that would enhance the enjoyment of that book. (ex. tea, chocolate, coffee mug, things related to the books characters and anything else you would like to make this a wonderful gift package.)
Participants are then asked to take two pictures of the items purchased. One clearly showing all items, and the other with the items hidden and wrapped. You will be given access to this blog to create two posts. One with the genre of your book and general clues as tow what might be contained within you wrapped gift, and a second with the pictures showing the items and any message about your gift you would like to give to its eventual recipients.
Everyone will be assigned a number and a time to choose a gift. You will only allowed to see the wrapped gift with clues. Each person will have the opportunity to either pick a gift that hasn’t been chosen, or “steal” a gift that seems more appealing for another player.
Gift picking is tentatively scheduled for the week of December 1st. Once all exchanges have been finalized, participants will be responsible for mailing their packages as soon as they have received their winner’s address.
