Announcing... Our 3rd Annual Christmas in July Exchange!

Tuesday, June 21, 2016

It's that time of year again.... Christmas in July!

CourtneyJamie, and I have had so much fun doing this exchange the last couple of years (2014 // 2015), and are excited to announce it again! Getting packages in the mail is always a treat, so make sure you join us!

The idea is simple : fill a box with anything you think your partner's kid(s) would love - water toys, craft supplies, books, snacks, games, etc, with a limit of $20 before shipping.

If you would like to participate this year please sign up by emailing me at with "Christmas in July Gift Exchange" in the subject. You can sign up between now and Friday, June 24th. You don't have to be a blogger to participate, but we ask that you share what you receive on social media with #xmasinjulygiftexchange. The matches will be emailed on or around Monday, June 27th.

Please include the following in your sign up email:

- Your name
- Your mailing address
- Blog URL (if applicable)
- Instagram name
- The name(s) & age(s) of your child(ren)
- Share their favorite summer activities
- Share a short wish list to give your partner a few ideas. Please note that you may or may not actually receive the things on the wish list, it is just to aid your partner in picking things to include.
- Any additional notes you think are relevant

Send out your packages no later than Friday, July 8th. Please, please, please keep your tracking number just in case, because you never know. Oh! And don't forget the wrapping paper! This is Christmas after all :)

Then come back on Monday, July 25th to link up and share what you received.

This gift exchange is limited to US residents only (sorry!)

We certainly hope you will sign up. It is always a treat to receive something special in the mail!

If you have any questions, please let me know.

  4. So much fun!!! Cheistmas in July is the best and celebrating Christmas in the middle of the year is so perfect! :)

  5. You ladies are so much fun. I should really join in, with a December birthday too I need some summer cheer.

  6. If I don't celebrate Christmas, should I celebrate Christmas in July? Hmmm...

  7. Oh how sad I am to miss this one! We just have so much going on in July and I don't want to make any commitments that I may not be able to follow through with. We are stretched so thin when it comes to time. But, I can't wait to see the linkup!

  8. Oh so fun! Our July is madness, so I'm going to sit this one out, but I love that you are doing this!

  9. I better sit this one out after the BoyMom, then birthday, then favorite things exchange!!! But still a great idea!

  10. I just sent you an email. Looking forward to it! :)

  11. You guys are killing me with all these fun exchanges! Sadly I have to pass :( But I know you guys will have a great turn out!

  12. I love this exchange idea! I can't wait to see what everyone gets! I really need to get my act together so I can play along with everyone again. I'm totally missing out!
