Christine, we're going to do a gift swap later on. Probably in February or March. Oh, and could you reduce the size of your signature to two lines please? Thank you!

Sounds like everyone is more for the min/limit set at between $20-$40? I am trying to get up a set of guidelines so i can edit the original post to include the guidelines. So far i have this.

1. price minimun is $20 and max is $40.

2. Gently used items are acceptable.

3. Homemade items are acceptable.

4. Sometime in February or March. (We can tack down a definate date close to then)

Anything anyone doesn't agree with or wants to add let me know.

I'm in too! Only sugestion is that we dont have a price minimum. $40 or $50 would be too high for me too. I agree that homemade items are much more valuable.

I'm in.... $20 range is what I'm able to do... We're on a pretty tight budget here and this baby will be #2 so we have a lot to keep in mind here for ourselves (no offence to anyone... we just live tight paycheck to paycheck lately).
If we could try to arrange best as possible canada to canada and us to us, etc. I think it would cut down on costs for a lot of us when it comes to shipping. That way we can spend more on the present than the shipping (I've been in swaps where shipping has ended up as much as the swap value which isn't pretty).

Keep the ideas and input coming ladies. I will be putting it all on the first post in the next week or so.
post #35 of 55
I think around $20 is about right. And I agree about keeping the shipping together.

I have also done swaps/secret santas where shipping was a ton, and that was even for parcel post. Let's keep that in mind when we make out our request lists also-- smaller and lighter is generally easier to manage.

I would like to point one thing out.

For the ladies in the states, it does not cost any more to send something to Canada, than to send it within the states.

For us in Canada, it costs twice as much to send within Canada, then it does to send to the states.

I knew it was pretty cheap to send from Canada to U.S., didn't know it worked the other way around.

Doesn't it take a couple extra weeks, though? Esp. to go US to Canada.
post #38 of 55
No, as long as you mark it as a gift. I have gotten stuff from FL in 5 days. ANd as well, as long as we are not doing this around a holiday, but that is just good common sense :P

Actually, packages that I have sent in previous swaps to Canada have always been higher priced.... usually twice what I would pay for priority in the US to get as cheap as it gets to Canada.
