I completely forgot about hosting my annual exchange until I got an email asking if I was doing it again?!?!
So, yes ;)
What I need from you is a PM which includes your name, address & where you are willing to ship to (US, EU only, anywhere ETC)
I'll keep this open until the 31st and send your pairings out on the 1st so you have time to mail your goodies!
As always the spirit of this is to brighten someone's Valentine's Day...a book, chocolate, a cute card...something you'd like to get to brighten your day. I think this is Year 5?!?! And I often have a few new faces, but many repeats.
I try hard to meet all shipping requests, but occasionally there is a lack of partner for certain areas so flexibility helps 😉
Also if you have a special dietary need (example you're allergic to nuts or gluten) let me know so I can share that with your partner.
Hope to have a good crowd once more...so feel free to spread the word!

 

I'll join you

 

PM on the way

 

I'm in and pming you.

 

Thanks all, lovely to wake up to multiple PM's. Hoping for many more this week 😘

 

I'm new to this Valentine's Exchange. Great idea. Will PM.

On Friday and realised I didn't put a note on the outside of the package to say it was for this exchange

 

 

 

Thanks to SouthernFryed for the sweet card & gift card to Starbucks
Xoxo

 

;)

 

So it should be there soon. :-)

 

Hope it gets there in time. I had eye surgery this week. All is fine, but I lost a few days because of it.

I have just received the beautiful package from my Valentine pair, Chawoso, and -please excuse me but- I could not wait a minute more before opening it!

The box was decorated with sparkling heart-stickers and was full of lovely Valentine goodies, and I can not but think that dear Chawoso once again has spoiled me with the imaginative choices of hers!!!

I have really adored all the cute love-themed things she has send me!!!

A beautiful Valentine-heart card full of warm wishes, the book of Raymond Carver WHAT WE TALK ABOUT WHEN WE TALK ABOUT LOVE, a delicious gold Lindt-chocolate heart, a packet of beautiful heart-colored napkins, a nice love-pink ribbon, a cute blue/yellow-hearted metallic box, various tea-bags of red-Kiss & yellow-Liebe (means love in German language) tea, a Raspberry-kiss scented body cream and a pink Cherry-heart-dream lipbalm, a Tiamo heart-shaped chocolate box full of delicious chocolates, and an Essence heart-multicoloured blush, that I have absolutely adored!

Dear Chawoso, I admit that your imagination strikes!!! And I can not but think that I am very lucky to had you as my pair in this exchange. You have cared so much to choose all the right things that create nice Valentine-love emotions to the receiver!

I wish Happy Valentine's day full of smiles to all!

I am happy you like my small Valentine's collection. Have a very happy day!

 

I'm a tad worried my package to my "partner" should of arrived by now

 

 

and my package was waiting for me!!!! Valentine's Day is in 5 minutes. I'm opening it. So.....thank you, barbieq233! I love every bit of it! I'm already eating M&Ms while I check out the rest of the box. Love the Rooster tea towel! The little elephant is so soft and squishy. I'll save the rest of the candy for later. The Sweethearts Lipgloss is great! Thank you for the book "A Cup of Tea" by Amy Ephron, it looks good. And the kids books for my grandson are really cute. Can hardly wait to try out the coffee, I love new flavors. I've never seen a crossword puzzle book like this before. I love crossword puzzles. The card is just adorable. Thank you for such thoughtful gifts! You are a treasure!

 

I am glad you got your package, I was afraid it would be late. I thought the elephant would be a nice for you grandson if you don't want to keep it.

I also got my package from you yesterday. I love all the sweet things you sent.
