    “There are only 365 days left until next Halloween!” — The Mayor of Halloween Town


    Well actually, Halloween is only 101 days away y'all!!! Let's prepare & celebrate with a little gifty swap, shall we?

    Each player signs up for 1 group and answers a few short questions that are posted below, then makes 4 personalized gifts (one for each member of their group) & in return recieves 4 personalized gifts of their own.

    IMPORTANT!!!
    Gifts should be HANDMADE & ON THEME for your groupmates. Gifts should also be SMALL, but more substantial than a single atc.

    Gift ideas:
    •peg dolls
    •A small (ie. Less than 4x4") canvas
    •ornaments
    •magnets
    •match box or Altoid tin shrine
    •pendant/jewelry
    •altered dominos
    •small stuffy
    •small altered potion/curiosity bottles

    *Gifts & media used are up to each player, these are just some ideas to get you started. Just remember to KEEP IT SMALL. We want 4 gifts to fit in a SMALL USPS Flate Rate Box together for returns.

    Please put each individual gift in its own bag with a To & From label. Don't worry about wrapping, I will take care of that.


    Shipping:
    Message me for my address when you are ready to send.
    ALL US PLAYERS will need to send along a minimum of $8.45 USD to cover return postage along with a legibly written address lable.

    INTERNATIONAL PLAYERS please send a legibly written return address label & you will have to message me for a return postage amount. I have the USPS app on my phone & we will look it up to guestimate.
    *Because international shipping is so costly, depending on the type of gifts that come for each player, I will package your gifts in the most economical way possible if possible (while still protecting the gifts).

    I have PayPal should you prefer that method.

    If you have ANY questions please don't be afraid to ask!


    Please copy/paste & answer these questions when you sign up:

    1. What are your favorite Halloween themes?

    2. What type of gifts do you prefer?

    3. What themes or types of gifts would you rather NOT recieve?
