#BloggerXmasBox17 Project




I think almost everybody is super excited by now about Christmas, I know I am!

I think almost everybody is super excited by now about Christmas, I know I am! Last night, I had a lightbulb moment, why isn’t a Blogger Christmas Box Swap – exclusively for Bloggers. So, here I am starting a new project for bloggers only, #BloggerXmasBox17 Project. So calling all bloggers – Let’s not be a stranger!

Taking Part


What’s #BloggerXmasBox17 Project is all about?

It is a box-swapping full of super nice surprises. It’s very simple: we pair you with a mystery blogger, you prepare them a box of lovely things. Pop it in the post, and cross your fingers you’ll receive a box back. You brighten their day, and get to know them a little bit more than just their blog. Who knows, you might even start a friendship.


It’s one pound to take part. It helps us make sure everyone is genuine, and is committed to the project. Running #BloggerXmasBox17 will be a lot of work, but I also hope it will be Fun too!


Can I be paired up with an International Blogger? Yes, course, all you need to remember is to tick the box “International blogger” when sign-up, and remember to check the post office posting guide for airmail prices before posting. If you’d rather stick to within your own country, then select “UK Blogger” option.


£20 is our suggested spend per box. You’re more than welcome to go over or under. You are also more than welcome to hand-make your box and spend nothing at all! Think of how pleased it must be when the other blogger received your box. But please only spend what you can afford.


Matching making is a random process. We are unable to rematch you with a different partner, unless your partner drops out and you’re left without one. If your partner seems suspicious or you don’t feel safe, please write in to enquiries@ethannevelyn.com and we’ll take a look at it immediately.


The #BloggerXmasBox17 is about giving. And hopefully, it’s also about receiving too! If money is the issue or that you are uninspired, this may not be for you at this time. Spend your energy on other things you like such as: spend time with friends, read your favourite book again, pamper yourself with some beauty products.


It’s arrived!


My #BloggerXmasBox17 is here and I want to share it how lovely it is! We love to see what’s in your box. We want to see those great imaginations and great minds behind the wonderful bloggers. So please share it with us on our FacebookTwitter or Instagram with #BloggerXmasBox17 hashtag.


What if my box doesn’t arrive? First, International post can take a looong time, so get posting ASAP! We are unable to chase your mystery blogger, but we can provide you with their email address. So, after the end of February, drop your mystery blogger a gentle nudge over email. If there’s still no communication, please report them to us via email: enquiries@ethannevelyn.com and we’ll make a record that they haven’t posted a package.

    Sounds like a lot of fun! I just participated in an ornament exchange with fellow bloggers (there were around 50 of us that participated) and I was paired with an international blogger. It was so nice getting to know them better but ti did take a good 4 weeks for the packages to make it to where they needed to go. I got some really lovely handmade ornaments too but that was just a bonus. #FabFridayPost

      Oh! An ornament exchange. That sound like fun. I think it would probably be the same if you were paired up with a UK blogger – useless you are also paired up with a US blogger too. Hope you can join in the fun with us this Christmas! 🙂 xx

    I think this is such a fab idea! Sometimes I truly wish that I could live in the UK I feel you are so much more lovely when it comes to blogging. I would love to be part of this, but first I am going to check how long things take to post to the UK as I would not like to join in and have someone waiting too long to receive my box. Let me get back to you! Love Mac xx #mg

    Wow what a fabulous idea! I’m currently running ragged with organising Christmas after some last minute change arrangements but would love to do this next year if it continues and I have more time! #FabFridayPost

    This is such a lovely idea. I am excited about Christmas as well. #twinkytuesday

    I would love to join in, but is it possible to do from the US? Are we permitted to mix and mingle in your fun? Let me know Su! This is really terrific! #mg xoxo

    What an amazing idea. If I didn’t have so many commitments at the moment I would love to join in. Hope you all get some lovely surprises x

    What a super idea, a blogger’s secret santa! Maybe next year I will participate as I’m not organised enough this year. Where is the £1 fee going? Charity?
