2nd Annual Mother's Day Mom Exchange!

Tuesday, March 29, 2016

Calling all moms! This post is for you!

I've participated in a good amount of blogger gift exchanges for the mini's in the past couple years since I started blogging. And while I LOVE an exchange where I get to buy something for someone's child and Mason gets a fun surprise in the mail, I got to thinking, why aren't the moms ever included?

Enter : Mother's Day Mom's Exchange.

With Mother's Day a few weeks away, it is time to celebrate moms and Courtney and I are so excited to be hosting the Mother's Day Mom Exchange for the Second Year!

Mother's Day is a day dedicated to the moms. The working moms. The stay at home moms. The moms of one child. The moms of eight children. The moms of fur babies. Step moms. Mother in laws. ALL moms are celebrated each year on Mother's Day.

Some important dates and details about the exchange:

March 29th - Mother's Day Mom Exchange announced

April 2nd at 11:59pm Pacific Time - last day to sign up if you want to participate

April 3rd - partner matches made and emailed 

April 8th - contact your partner and exchange addresses by this date 

April 23rd - last day to mail packages 

May 6th - link up on either of our blogs and share what you got!

If you are interested in participating, please email me at chasinmasonblog@gmail.com and put 'Mother's Day Mom Exchange 2016' in the subject line. Please make sure to include your first and last name, your blog url (if you have one, you don't need a blog to participate!), and any other social media links that you'd like your partner to have. And please remember to sign up by April 2nd at 11:59pm Pacific Time. I will start matching partners on Sunday, April 3rd.

The value of your box should be $20 BEFORE SHIPPING. 
This exchange is open to US residents only.

I will be collecting all the names of the moms that want to participate and then will be matching partners through Elfster. (Please be aware that partners might not be a 'couple'. The person that you are sending a gift to might not be the person that you are receiving a gift from.)

Once partners are matched, I will be emailing you to let you know who your partner is. I will also be sending you some sample questions to ask/answer with your partner to get to know them a little and what their likes and dislikes are. Feel free to use all of them or none of them and make up your own! It's only a suggestion as a little conversation starter. At this point you will also exchange addresses so no need to send it to me in your original sign up email.

Feel free to share on Instagram/Twitter using #mothersdaymomexchange as well.

We're really excited about hosting this exchange again this year and hope you are too! I hope you'll join me -- it's time to celebrate MOM!

If you have any questions, concerns, or need clarification, don't hesitate to ask either of us.
