Hi ladies sorry this has taken so long to put up, but here it is.

Of course this has nothing to do with Essential baby.

So as I have said in the thread my two previous due in groups we did a secret santa as such, or i guess you could say a secret baby shower type thing, where those who wanted to join in got given another member to buy a present for and it can be for the member or the baby. There was a maximum spend of $20, then of course keep in mind postage on top of this.

Cut of date for joining will be 2nd of March, I figure two weeks should be enough time to join in, or should we give it an extra week or two?

Cut off for posting I thought middle of April to allow plenty of time to buy and send and recieve before bubs all come. Postage is to be either trackable or express post, I don't think we need the hassle of Aussie Post losing the parcel.

It would be best if Postal address, proper name to be pm'd to me, or if you would prefer I can give you my email address, only myself and your buyer will be told your name and address.

A few questions to help your buyer, but add anything else you think will be useful to your buyer.

Gender of bubs:

Would you prefer something for yourself or bubs or either:

Nursery theme if you have one:

Favourite colour or colours you like for bubs:

Likes; characters/animals/etc:

Any bath type products you prefer or any you don't like:

Disposables or mcn:

Anything you would prefer not to receive or that you have plenty of:

Anything you would like to add:

I'm really looking forward to this!
I do want to check something though, is that a minimum spend of $20 or was it supposed to be maximum?
I'll send you my details as soon as I get to a computer.

This is a lovely idea. I'll PM you my details when I get a chance.

Will the swaps just be allocated to people randomly?

Nervy Not sure if this is the same as you're getting, but every time I write out the message and hit send, it comes back with an error:

The following errors were found


You must enter a message longer than 3 characters.

This personal message has not been sent




and then my message box is blank (it wipes the entire message)! So annoying. If this is the same as what you're getting, let me know if you find anything out from the mods. I'll probably just send an email to you monkeys mum in the meantime, with my details etc.

Thanks!

Hi girls

Sounds like an exciting idea.

Just wanted to stress (as OP has) that Essential Baby/Essential Kids has nothing to do with this so members need to join with that in mind.

Not meaning to put you off doing this just putting a disclaimer here.

Nervy - if the above tip didn't help re pm post here and I will give you our admin to contact.

Regards

Ali
