Blogger Valentines Swap

I am, quite secretly, a complete romantic. But I've never really had even a passing interest in Valentines Day. I've never really done anything to celebrate it no matter what was going on in my romantic life (I have been known to buy myself the occasional half price box of supermarket chocolates, but that's got a lot more to do with my love of sweet things than any desire to partake in this most dubious of holidays).

That being said, I think it's a grand old excuse for a another blogger swap! By mid-Feb, the secret Santa excitement will have worn off and I know I'll be ready for another box of blogger treats!

If no one else wants to join in, I'm not above buying myself presents as I've mentioned above, but I think it'd be more fun if others wanted to get involved?

Fancy it?
I'm planning on keeping it simple, as is my organisational style - I'm thinking a flat budget of £10, with a last posting date of the 7th, which should give plenty of time for things to get where they are going.
I can either pair you up beforehand so you know who your partner is and you can discuss likes, dislikes etc... Or I can keep it all hush hush a la Secret Santa so I get to have all the knowledge and power like an evil overlord. Except not evil.
I can see the benefits of both ways so just state your preference along with your email address in the comments below if you feel like joining in, and I'll just go along with what the majority decide! If you don't want to comment, feel free to email me instead at teacakeadventures@gmail.com to register your interest!


  1. Lol! I only ever get flowers off hubby when they are reduced in the petrol station :D

  2. I would love this, I don't mind knowing or not knowing who it is, I just love the excitement of parcels which I haven't bought for myself!

  7. This sounds amazing. Unfortunately I've just lost my job so can't afford it, but can't wait to see what everyone gets :D


  8. Excellent idea. My fiance and I don't do Valentine's Day really (it's so close to my birthday) so it'd be nice to do something like this!
