This year I participated in two Secret Santas and they were a lot of fun! As I have no ability to not open a gift in front of me I opened them as soon as they arrived. Please excuse the terrible pictures, there is no light at all!
The first one was organized by Char over at T rexes and Tiaras. I can't say who I sent my gifts too, but I do know that mine were from the lovely Helen over at I accidentaly spent my wages at Top Shop. The limit on this exchange was £5 and I can't help but think that my gifter made hers stretch further than I was able to stretch mine.
Faith Hope & Charity Shopping. There were several rules to follow here and I did my best, but you know, Americans and rules don't always go well! My partner was was Mrs M, over at Mrs M Makes. When I was perusing her blog for ideas I was struck by how talented Mrs M is, and I was feeling pretty lucky that she was my gift buddy. Let me tell ya, was I ever lucky!
The most challenging aspect of this exchange was to give something that symbolizes deck the halls. I'm decking my mantel piece with this lovely felted decoration.
I really hope that I was able to make the people I bought for just as happy as my gifters have made me!
Did you participate in a gift exchange? How did it go?
