Firstly I know it's earlier than last year, but so many people didn't send in their gifts at all that I ended up frantically making individual gifts at 11pm on christmas eve. Which was fun. So I've decided to launch it earlier, and the actual name swapping/gift giving will only begin about a week earlier than last year. Hopefully it gives people more notice and time to drop out, should they wish to.
To get an idea of what gifts you could give, you could take a look at the gift exchange last year- 'The Movellas Gift Exchange'. Okay, enough rambling now :)
How to take part:
Leave a comment below and I'll add you to the list. Deadline for joining is the 30th November. Should you wish to drop out, please let me know before this date.
How it works:
Once the participants have been confirmed, I will randomly select people for gift giving. Everyone will end up giving and recieving a gift. I will then either:
1. Create a movella [if you're a fan of me] with you
2. Message you through other means [kik, other social media if I have you]
3. Email you/Ask you to send me an email. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org
4. Comment on an old mumble of yours so no-one else will see [if you're not a fan of me]- slightly awkward but it works
And then I'll give you the name of the person you are sending the gift to.
Dates and Deadlines:
30th November: The final date for joining
15th December: The final date for sending gifts in to me
25th December (UK GMT TIME): Gifts are posted, and givers are revealed
What are 'gifts'?
Anything that fits into ONE movellas chapter- it could be a christmas card [made online/hand drawn and then take a picture etc.], a poem, a story, a song.
If you don't understand anything I've written so far, this is basically an online version of secret santa. :)
Have fun! :D
