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).

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.

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.

Count me in as well. I definitely think 20-30(max) is perfect.

I love this idea and am so in! I too agree that $20-30 should be the limit. I actually would prefer to do gently used/handmade gifts!
I think recycling and reusing goes along with MDC's whole concept of parenting anyway. *grin* Not that getting new is bad mind you.
I also thought it might be a good idea to do the "secret shower" thing all the way. What I mean is once we have a partner we could send anonymous e-cards and such to the other person as little bits of encouragement etc. Especially if we see that person posting that they are having a hard time.

Just a thought,
Nichol

If it is not too much to ask please pair me up with a mama who needs cloth. I would really like to give that as a gift.
