I polled on Twitter a couple of weeks ago if anybody was interested in a holiday mug swap and a few people responded, so I wanted to give this a go as a little act of kindness before the holidays.
The basic idea of the swap is to buy one of your favorite mugs (doesn’t have to be holiday themed at all!) and send it to an assigned participant in a ‘secret santa’-style fashion. I don’t know about you, but I have a a bit of a mug obsession and a hot beverage always tastes that much better out of a new, pretty mug!
Also, it’s always nice to get a little surprise in the mail. Does that sound like something you’d be interested in? Great.
Let me give you the details:
+ The mug should cost between $5-$10 before shipping. I think this is a reasonable price range and I think many mugs fall into that price range. If you are willing to spend a couple dollars more, I am not going to stop you.
+ I am going to keep the sign-up open for a week. Sign-ups close on November 23th.
+ You’ll receive a name + address to mail your mug to on November 24th.
+ The last day to mail your mug will be December 5th. I want to make sure that all the mugs arrive before Christmas.
+The swap is open to US residents only. The postage is simply too expensive internationally. Sorry guys.
+ Share your mug with us on December 19th on your blog or Instagram with the hashtag : #SecretSantaMugSwap
If you’re interested in signing up for the Secret Santa Mug Swap, please do so through this link : Secret Santa Mug Swap Sign-up
Please remember: if you sign up, you’re expected to purchase a mug and send it to your secret santa partner by December, 5th. If you can’t do that, please be fair to the other participants and maybe consider signing up another time.
Don’t forget to come back on December 19th to see the miga rhat were exchanged.
I hope you join in. And please let me know if you have any questions!
