I’m part of a Beauty group on Facebook, and every so often they have a ‘Secret Santa’ (one for each occasion usually, so we have Christmas, Valentine’s Day, Easter, Halloween) and this year they decided to make the Valentine’s one not so secret-you paired yourself up with another member and did a box for each other, chatting as you did it. Very cool.
Usually there’s a questionnaire we have filled in with likes and dislikes, and that’s all you have to go on-but this time I was able to chat to my partner too, which was handy. I agreed to swap with Kerryanne (who is talking about creating her own blog, so if she does, I will link her in this post!) and I took photos of what I sent to her before I sent it, for this post.
I was really pleased with how well I’d themed this box-and Kerryanne sent me this photo once she’d opened it-because I didn’t think to take one of everything together!
Kerryanne’s box arrived about a week and a half before I managed to send mine-because she is clearly far more organised than I am. She’d decorated the box and even made me a card-yeah, I suck, I didn’t do that stuff. She also individually wrapped everything-which I didn’t do either. (But I put sequins and rose petals in the box, which counts for something, right!?)
Kerryanne sent me some papers from her crafting things, because she thought they’d be good for blog photos (absolutely-what a nice thought!) she sent me two boxes of Rainbow Nerds-which I adore, and a Valentine’s lollipop and chocolate hearts. Great minds think alike re chocolate hearts, obviously. She chose some gorgeous jewellery for me, a lovely perfume from Avon (I’ve never tried their perfumes but this one is so nice!) and a Cherry Blossom candle-I love cherry everything. She managed to find a Sleek Palette and Blush that I don’t already have, and she sent me some other lovely bits too.
I loved our swap and I’d happily pair up with Kerryanne again in future-I hope she feels the same!
Have you ever done a swap, either with someone you knew or a secret santa type swap? How did it go-did you get a new favourite item from it?
