Tis the Season Mug Swap – 2015

Tis the Season Mug Swap 2015 is LIVE! Deadline to sign up is Nov 23!

I cannot believe that a year has gone by and we’re ready for our 2nd Annual ‘Tis the Season Mug Swap!!! Yowzers! Where has the time gone? Caitlin at Coffee with Caitlin and I are so excited to kick off this fun, festive Mug Swap!

Haven’t heard of a Mug Swap before? It’s a grown up version of a pen pal! Basically, you sign up. We give you a partner to swap with. Get to know one another via email. Shop for the perfect mug, and mail!

Here are the details:

1. Sign up using this link by November 23.

2. Follow Katie and Caitlin so we can keep up with your mug swap pics!

3. We’ll email you your partner’s email information by November 25. Send each other an email, and get to know one another so you can find the perfect mug!

4. Be sure to mail your mug to your partner by December 11, whether that’s buying one locally and packing up/mailing OR shipping from online. Either way!

5. Be sure to stick to the timeline. You want to make sure your partner gets a mug!! If you can’t get a hold of your partner, let us know ASAP so we can help out. Or if you’re unable to participate, let us know too so we can reassign your partner.

6. We want to see your mugs after the swap! Snap a pic, and tag it with #tistheseasonmug15. Be sure to tag your partner who sent it to you, if you can, and tag Caitlin and me!

NOTE: If you’re outside of the USA, sign up and we’ll try our best to pair you up with someone, but we may not be able to. If you’re in the US and are willing to have an international partner, please let us know when you sign up!

If you have any other questions, PLEASE let us know! I’m already dreaming of yummy tea for a new mug. 🙂

    I would love to participate, but to send a mug from Germany to USA is too expensive.
    I would have to pay 17 $ for the package 🙁
    Have fun and i will look for all the pictures on Instagram.

      Oh poo 🙁 I understand though. It’s such a long distance to ship. Maybe next year we’ll try to expand to international, and we can pair you up with someone that’s a little closer! Fingers crossed!
