What is the procedure? LOL.

Do we put our name/return address on it or is it supposed to stay a surprise who it is from until it is opened? Are we not allowed to open the box/package at ALL until the day we are all opening? I ask because I am considering not actually wrapping the gift itself but just having it in a cute box/mailer.....?

When are we supposed to ship by? Can I ship it early?

Thanks!!!!

I was just wondering about this, too. If we ship it ourselves we HAVE to put a return address, and that will give away who sent it. Or am I having a serious attack of preggo brain right now?

Yep, put your return address! You don't have to put a name on it- I do a lot of "secret swapping" in a group I'm in and rather than put our name and address we do "Secret Pal" or something and then our address. Never had a problem shipping it! So it's up to you- if you want to add your name that's okay, your partner can just keep it a secret until she posts her gift. I plan to put secret partner or something. Chances are they can guess when they see the city/state anyway!

Nope, don't open until the open date!!

Ship by May 20- you can ship it earlier but your partner will have to hang on to it for the open date!


Remember to PM me or email me and let me know when you've mailed so I can mark it off

I'm going to have to have it shipped directly from the gift registry. Hope that's OK! Otherwise it would have probably been late coming all the way to Korea and then going all the way back to the US. Should be able to get it gift-wrapped, though the billing address will probably give me away.

When I mail secret stuff i tend to just put my return address with no name or my DH last name (haven't changed mine yet) so it stays a surprise.

Oh and I am so excited everything I see I want to get for my partner it's hard for me to narrow it down when it comes to the kiddos lol!
