Secret Santa Book + Sock Exchange
It's time for the second annual Secret Santa Book and Sock Exchange! If you're new to these, I'll explain how it works below!
Sign-ups are OPEN!
Entry Dates: Nov 16 - Nov 27
Mailing Dates: Nov 28 - Dec 16
WHAT IS A BOOK EXCHANGE?
If you're new to book exchanges, the idea is simple! You send someone a book and someone sends you one in return! How the particular exchange is set up might be different but the idea is often the same.
These exchanges are a great way to meet new book lovers!
Anyone is welcome to take part!
HOW IT WORKS
Secret Santa is the same as last year! In this exchange, you will be sending one person, your secret match, a present of one book and one pair of socks! And you'll receive a present in return!
Between the dates of November 16 and November 27, I'll be gathering everyone's information that is interested in taking part! So you must be willing to share your information with me. I will only share it with whom I match you with, and no one else!
Once I close the entries, I will try and have everyone matched around November 28. I will email you your secret match! From that day, you have until December 16 to send out your present!
Keep in mind! Your match may not be the same person who will be sending you a book.
I will also try to pair everyone up with someone who has similar tastes as you do! However, depending on the number of entries, that may not be possible.
When it comes to how to send your match their book there are three options!
The main way you can send your match their book is through their Amazon wishlist.
The other option is, as long as your match is comfortable with this, I will share with you their address at request only and you can physically mail them their present! I will not share their address unless you request it. This option is completely optional for you, you can refuse to share your address with me.
As wishlists can be limiting to what book options you can send, with this third option, you may also send your match their book through Amazon using their address to keep their present a surprise! Again, only if your match has decided they're comfortable sharing their address.
Here are some other limitations as well, only to be fair for everyone!
Only one book, please! It's not fair if someone else gets two books while another gets only one.
Only one pair of socks! Again, only to be fair!*
Spending limit of $40/£30, this is the combined price of the book and socks. To keep things fair, please do not exceed this amount.
*Note ~ I have looked on Amazon for socks. Amazon is a bit limiting when it comes to single pairs of socks, and these can become pricey. I do suggest checking your local stores and shipping your present! Shopping locally will give you more freedom to find fun socks! But again, not everyone may be comfortable with sharing their address, so please keep this in mind.
Once you receive your book, go ahead and post about it! Make sure to use the hashtag ~ #beautysbookexchange
