Gift giving

Homemade rhubarb jam with cinnamon, orange and ginger

“I will send a handmade gift to the first 3 people who leave a comment on my blog requesting to join this exchange. I don’t know what that gift will be yet and you may not receive it tomorrow or next week, but you will receive it within 365 days, that is my promise! The only thing you have to do in return is pay it forward by making the same promise on your blog.”

Yesterday I read about it on Anne’s blog and then I made a comment for a similar post on For the body and soul and thereby obliged to make the same promise on my blog. I think that it’s a great idea!

So come on, the first three people requesting to join will receive a homemade culinary gift in exchange that they make the same promise on their own blog. If you don’t have any blog and want to participate, then comment anyway. And is doesn’t matter in which country you live in, I’ll post the gift to where ever you live. The gift will be a surprise, so I won’t send the jam on the photo above.

    This sounds like a fun initiative Dagmar. I usually don’t jump on these kind of initiatives, but what the heck, there’s a first time for everything. It sounds like a great opportunity to do some food-related exchange in the foodblogging community.

Bardzo podoba mi sie ten pomysl, az zaluje ze nie moge uczestniczyc w takiej wymianie prezentow, bo przeciez w prezentach przyjemniejsze jest obdarowywanie!!! Serdecznie pozdrawiam Agnieszka
