Louis Vuitton Holiday Gift Exchange: Sign-Up & Rules

  1. The Louis Vuitton Holiday Gift Exchange

    What: This is a holiday gift exchange, similar to a Secret Santa. You will be randomly assigned a buddy that you will be responsible for sending one gift to. In turn, you will receive a gift from a different person. Please see full rules below for further details. You will receive notification of who your buddy is on 11/16/2007 to allow you enough time to shop!

    When: You will be responsible for sending one gift to your buddy that has to arrive between December 1 – 24

    Why: This is a fabulous way to get to know other members that you might not normally have a chance to communicate with! Plus, we’re all shopping addicts and it’s always fun to shop for other people!

    How/When Do I Sign Up: Sign-ups will take place from November 1- 15. Please see full details below for how to officially sign up.

    Complete rules (PLEASE READ!!!!):

    1. After signing up you are responsible for sending one package/gift to your assigned buddy.
    2. Total value of package/gift MUST be between $30-50 USD (or equivalent in Euros/Pounds, etc.)
    3. There are no rules about what type of gift you must send. Be creative and be in the holiday mood ☺
