Eat Drink & Be Mary: Gift Swap Reveals


Gift Swap Reveals

I'm one of those people that loves picking out gifts for others.  It's so much fun filling a package and sending off to someone knowing it'll bring a smile to their face.  And I also love getting packages in the mail (but who doesn't).  So when I recently signed up for some swaps around Christmas time I was so giddy to start picking out their gifts.  

First up was the Color Swap by Two Miracles, I was paired with Sarah @ Joyfully Organized.  Sarah is seriously sweet, and I had SO much fun picking out for her gifts.  Her favorite color was pink and she loves monograms.  I mean really, she's a gift after my own heart.  I choose gold, and Sarah really out did herself with my package.  I'm gold, sparkly heaven!  Just look for yourself...

I know you're not supposed to pick favorites, buttt this garland is adorable and I can't wait to hang it up!

To see what I sent Sarah [in all it's pink-y glory] check out her post.  Plus she's sharing Gift Swap Tips for any of you that are thinking about joining one in the future.  

I also recently participated in The Great Christmas Exchange through Elah Tree.  This exchange was Secret Santa style (one of my favorite traditions around the holidays), and done through Elfster.  So I was ecstatic to find out that Anne @ Love the Here and Now drew my name.   

I'm now the proud owner of Essie nail polish + the worlds cutest note pad.  These will surely come in handy when trying to keep up with my to-do's while planning for my wedding. eek!

Are you sold yet?  Doing a gift swap is something I definitely suggest joining, especially after participating in about 5 of them.  Well if the above didn't convince you then here's my 4 reasons you should.

4 Reasons You Should Participate in Blogger Swaps
+ You get to know other bloggers 
+ Who doesn't love getting some snail mail?
+ It's fun picking out the gifts for your swap partner (or is that just me?)
+ You'll bring a smile to someone's face

I'm so thankful for my fantastic partners ; they really hit the nail on the head and spoiled me.  Have you participated in a swap before?  Are you doing Secret Santa this year?
