Viola`s Christmas Gift Swap.

Viola`s Christmas Gift Swap.




I have been invited to be part of The Christmas Blogger Gift Swap, and YOU can take part too.

Its been organised by Viola  @violahelen_

She has come up with a great idea for us bloggers to celebrate Christmas between us and get to know our fellow bloggers a bit better. Its just for UK bloggers (sorry international bloggers, but its a cost thing I think – perhaps you could organise one in your country? Let us know).

Anyway, its a gift swap and a way to get to know other bloggers and their amazing blogs. You will get paired with another blogger at the beginning of December (by Viola). Then you have a bit of time to get to know them, before you can arrange to send them a lovely Christmas gift.

My initial worry was its going to be expensive! But, no you and your blogger partner can decide amongst yourselves if you want to set a price, or not, or even send homemade gifts? Its totally up to you! That’s part of the fabness of this idea.


Visit Viola’s site and fill in her google form. 

Write a blog post about the event. (within 3 days so we can get lots of bloggers involved).

Get paired up, get to know your blogger friend, buy gifts and send.


  • November 28th: Deadline for submission form.
  • December 1st: Find out blogger friend.
  • By December 17th: Send off your gift.


  • Fill out the google form.
  • Write a blog post about the event.
  • Send a couple of nice gifts to your paired blogger by December 17th.
  • Write a post about your gifts (include photos) after you have received them.
  • Send links to Viola of all your blog posts.

Thank you to Viola for organising this, I love the idea and I hope you do too. If you get involved from reading my post, please let me know as I would love to know which of my followers are doing this. I look forward to reading all the further posts from this event…. and to meeting my blogger friend! Can’t wait to meet you!  🙂
