December DDC Swap~Info **UPDATED 10/14** - Page 5

post #81 of 117
Thread Starter 
Just bumping back to the first page, lets all aim to have the gifts out by the 15th of November.
post #82 of 117
With head-hanging shamefulness, I have to say the chances of me making that deadline are slim-to-none. : I do hope to have it done and ready to send before Thanksgiving (well, by the 20th, which is when we'll be leaving to visit the Inlaws if we go). I do think that it will be worth the wait--I hope the mama who gets it will agree!

Tons of love and advance apologies to my poor, patient Mama!

I ordered my mama's gift, but instead of shipping straight to her I think it's coming to me first. I should have it back out to her in time for the deadline.

Hopefully when I order mine tomorrow, I will get it in time to ship back out!

I think it'll be ok, I do think though we really really need to try to get them out before babies start coming, because it'll get put off and put off and never get done.

Is anyone else having trouble staying within budget? $20 doesn't look like much for a gift these days...

or do u guys know where some great deals are that I'm missing?
post #87 of 117
I'm having trouble, too. I can either spend $15 or $25+, so I am trying my best to get to $20 exactly. This is tough.

I think $20 is more of a guideline... if you aren't exactly at $20 it's no big deal. And don't forget that it's $20 before shipping & handling.

For some sites, you can spend $20 and then $5-8 on S&H. But if you can find a deal with free shipping, you can go over the limit but still end up paying less than you would have with shipping.

I spent around $20. I think it is just a guideline so some of us dont spend $10 or $40. Then the gifts would be really off. my mama should have got hers but I havne't seen a post. I hope she liked it. I sent it priority over a week ago.

News from the ODD:

MmeMuffin, your fairy wants you to know that your pkg is on it's way! She knows you have had trouble with stuff being delivered, so she put delivery confirmation on it. Keep your eyes open!

Yeah its just around, I know its not easy, I think I ended up spending closer to $30, things were just too cute!! We just want our mommas to know how special they are!

I've bought the first of the gifts for my mama. It's hard sticking to the $20, but I've only got one or two things left to order. Once they get here I'll be sending them out!

I got my package yesterday!! Thank you!! Am I allowed to reveal my sender? I've been so swamped with college I've barely been around except to lurk or post a quick response.

I was SUPER excited about the covers. Is it weird to say I absolute LOVE those covers for newborns??!!! :

Post pics too! I'm excited to see what everyone gets!
post #97 of 117
I received the most adorable gift in the mail, but I'm not sure if it's from this board, another board, or someone not even related to my boards.

Based on what it is I'd say it came from this board, but my hippo-love is not openly known by many :-D I guess I could use the email address and ask directly.

Anyone wanna fess up? :

New ODD question!



Kirk_Heidi, your fairy wants to know: Do youactually have a registry on findgift.com? The link you posted just goes to the main page, not to your specific registry."

Also, regarding hats and booties....can you point to any specific sets you like? They are a bit hard to find. Or, is there anything else you'd love for yourself or this baby? Help a mama help you!

Thanks!
