Announcing... Our 3rd Annual Secret Santa Mommy and Me Book Exchange!

Tuesday, November 8, 2016

I know, I know, it's barely November and I'm already talking about Christmas.... Again. Don't worry, I haven't forgotten Thanksgiving (my very favorite eating holiday lol), but with Christmas, you have to prepare a little. If you don't start early, December passes you by in the blink of an eye! So, with that, I'm so, excited to announce our 3rd annual Secret Santa Mommy and Me book exchange! We had so much fun last year and the year before that we couldn't wait to do it again!

This year I'm co-hosting again with Courtney from Sweet Turtle Soup and Ashley from Everything's Hunky Dorey! Now that Halloween is behind us, we all know that everyone has Christmas on the brain. What better way to kick off the holiday season than with a fun book exchange?!

Nothing sounds better than curling up with the kiddos and reading books on cold days. But what to read? Enter Secret Santa Mommy and Me Book Exchange ... where both mom and the child get a fun gift! Win, win!

Sounds fun, right?! If you're interested, please "RSVP" (so to speak) to the Secret Santa email listed : 

Please note : participation in the book exchange is only guaranteed if you email the specific email. Please feel free to comment below if you are interested (and to share your excitement about the exchange!) but please please please also make sure that you email in. The latest date to RSVP is Friday, November 11th (this Friday! so don't delay!). 

When you email, please make sure to RSVP and say you would like to participate as well as include:
- your full name
- your mailing address
- blog name and URL (if you have one)/Instagram/any social media info you'd like to give
- a list of 6 books for you and 6 books for your child - the books can be any books you like (they don't have to be holiday themed but they definitely can be if you want).

There is no spending limit for this exchange but I'd say plan to spend about $20-25 BEFORE shipping. If possible, try to include various price points in the books that you suggest to your partner as well.

Partners will be chosen around November 12th/13th and emailed out to the proper people. 

Last day to mail your books to your Secret Santa is Monday, November 28th. 

Link up with us with a blog post on Friday, December 9th sharing the fun books that you received.

We know the holidays get crazy after Halloween so we wanted to give you all as much time to shop and ship before the post office and/or UPS and FedEx get crazy!

Oh, and one more thing, this exchange is open to US residents only OR international residents that have a US mailing address (PO Boxes or friends/relatives that you can pick up the box from work great!). I wish we could open it to everyone, but shipping internationally from the US gets insanely expensive sometimes. Sorry!

If you don't have a blog but want to participate that's totally fine! You can use #SecretSantaBookExchange on Instagram & Twitter!

We hope you will join us for this fun book exchange!
