2016 secret santa - introducing the blogger gift exchange!

Hey! So I've partnered up with Vanessa over at It's Simply Me for the 2016 Blogger Gift Exchange! Because Christmas is coming up in two weeks, this is the chance to collaborate with other bloggers and for the community to get to know you as well.

How does it work?

You sign up your blog to participate in a secret santa sort of thing, which means you will gift a blogger—the recepient. Similarly, a blogger will gift you. We opted out of sharing addresses this year, for practical as well as safety reasons, so instead the gifts will be online and related to Blogger! Including:

  • A guest post on the recipient's blog
  • A post on your blog highlighting the recipient's blog
  • ...or another collaboration between your blog and the recipient's, such as an interview post (that will have to be organised amongst yourselves with little involvement from me or Vanessa!)



 Is my recipient random?

Not exactly. They will definitely not know that you are their giver, however. We want to make this a better experience for everyone, so we will match givers to their recipients based on factors such as similarity of content. However, if you don't mind who it is, you can specify that when you sign up.

How do I sign up?

Use the form below to sign up! You only have a week, though. Make sure you do this by the 11th of December!

On December 15th, you'll be sent an email of your recipient. Please make sure you have your gift ready by the 23rd of December—this gives you about a week and a half to write a post that is appropriate, thoughtful and sufficiently long (about 300-500 words, with the exception of an interview, which might vary).

If you've signed up, please make sure to put this button on your sidebar to show us and everyone else that you are participating in the 2016 Blogger Gift Exchange!

  1. This is such a lovely idea, count me in! :)

  2. I love this idea :D I've been wanting to join some kind of secret Santa thing with bloggers, but it's difficult because of my location. This is the perfect thing for me to join :D
