We could select names at random, and pair up for a gift exchange! Nothing high priced...say keep it under $20 or so. Could be fun...what do you think?

It's really difficult to do with people living all over the world and trouble with import costs. You could pair people up in the same country and do something like that however or people within the EU. smile.gif

Yeah, I think the cost of shipping in some cases would be more than the gift. I like the idea of pulling names within a certain region though. smile.gif

The idea is great. To keep shipping costs low we should make 2 groups one for USA and one for Europe.
There is still a lot of time till christmas. I hope this idea will not fall into oblivion.

Nice idea, but taking the fact where I live, it would cost a lot more to ship the item smile.gif

Let's keep it in mind then! I think if we keep the pairings local it shouldn't be a problem!

If I can get a promise that you will, in the near future, become a famous artist thus rocketing the value of said portrait, yes.

That's priceless!

An idea for reducing shipping costs though, is to buy something over the intertubes with credit card at some store nearby your "subject", and sending it directly to him/her ^^
