December Swap Sheet

This December, may we interest you in some holiday swapping? The infamous Black Friday has come and gone, and many of us will start to feel that mid-month panic as our lists of gifts to give grows and the number of bills in our wallet shrinks. While we’re completely in favor of shopping thoughtfully and locally and delighting our loved ones with coveted gifts, we can’t deny the value of swapping this time of year. Whether you’re already planning a Yankee Swap with your family, or you know your best friend would totally hand over her classic black Alice + Olivia dress in exchange for your fierce L.A.M.B. heels, there are tons of ways to get in the swapping spirit this holiday season. We’ve compiled this list to give you a head start on your swap searches across the nation and across the pond in December.
