We are wrapping up the Bead exchange, and so I figured I would put feelers out there to see if any one has any interest in a gift exchange/DDC shower?

 

We could do a gift for Mom or Baby ----- could be handmade, something practical, fun, or foofoo even. Postpartum or labor gifts are always popular :D

 

Some examples could be:
Something handmade

A comfy pair of socks, tea or chocolate for mama

Candles

photo album for the babe

 

You know, simple kinds of stuff that comes from the heart. Nothing to stress over, or spend tons of money on- but something sweet to brighten up a fellow Mama's day.

I remember the last time I did a gift exchange it really brightened my heart to receive a surprise...It was this ultra comfy pair of socks and a 3 pack of chocolate bars. I loved it :)

 

For addresses I could just match people and leave it up to you both to exchange addresses? Or we could do it anonymously where I give someone who signs up a random address without the screen name. This second option would involve me having your address just so you know.

 

I am thinking this is a shower that can be done on a $20 or less budget (including shipping), but ofcourse - who will know if you go over or under...Just a guideline so no one shies away from this thinking it will be terribly expensive.

Tentative schedule:

I will bump this thread weekly for people to comment, brainstorm and sign up until March 5th

 

Addresses of Mama's can be exchanged/assigned by March 10th

With gifts shipped by April 1st....

 

 

Canadian Mama's please feel free to sign up. I can match you with a fellow international mama or we can find you a partner to exchange with stateside :)

Hello Ladies -

Just a gentle reminder that if you have spaced off or not sent your gift yet to please make that a priority or contact your partner or me and let me know so that every one has a positive experience :)

No one is mad or in 'trouble' (lol) just want to stay communicative!

If you have ANY questions or an emergency has come up, please contact me!

Much love to everyone!
