The 8th Annual Secret SANta Swap – Reveal

I am so excited to finally share the 8th annual Secret SANta Swap 2023 with you. Like NaBloPoMo, the Secret Santa Swap was well received and we had 21 (!) participants this time. I was so delighted that so many people were interested in spreading a little holiday goodness. I am also thrilled that everybody received their packages and it all went off without a hitch. Thank you all so much for being great team players and following through! You made this holiday season that much brighter for everyone.

I have to admit, a little part of me was very excited to see that even though I changed the swap to a “Favorite Things” swap, quite a few of you sent/received some beautiful mugs. I didn’t ask for a mug this year for this swap (gasp! Can you believe it?), but ended up getting not one, but two mugs from other people for Christmas. So it’s all good!

Here are the other mugs + goodies that were swapped this year. You all went above and beyond and put together some great surprise packages. This is once again proof that I have the best community here! Thank you so much, you’re all amazing!

I tagged the recipients (not the senders) of the packages in the captions. Maybe you’ll find a new blog or Instagram account you’d like to follow.

Kim | Tobia | Tanja

Nicole | Elisabeth | Anne

Engie | Ernie | Sarah

San | Jenny | Golda

Meike | Penny | Kathrin

Lindsay | Daria | Stephany

Caroline | Sarah | Julie

I hope you all loved what you received and enjoyed participating in the swap! I also appreciated that many of you shared their swaps on your blogs and Instagram during the holiday season.

 Until next time, friends!
