Unfortunately, registration for the MINI Gift Swap has closed for the 2015 holiday season. Be sure to keep an eye out once this year's holdays roll around. In the meantime, if you feel a particularly altruistic urge, please don't hesitate to donate to a local charity.
Enter your name and mailing address. On Match Day, 12/16, we'll email you the name and address of a fellow MINI Owner, and they'll receive yours. It's all done randomly, so there's no telling who you'll get matched with.
Find a gift you think a MINI Owner would love and send it to your match by 12/22. There's no set gift price, but we recommend something around $10. And nothing inappropriate! If you need ideas, check ShopMINIUSA.com.
When you get your gift, share a pic with us on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter and tag #MINIGiftSwap! Remember, you may not get a gift in return. We hope this is a rare case, but it's a busy season, and things happen.
Your name & address will go to the MINI Owner who you are randomly matched with (and you’ll get theirs). It won’t be shared with anyone else.
MINI Owners make up one big, extended family. The MINI Gift Swap is a fun, festive way to make connections between people who share a love of motoring. No one exemplifies that more than Owners.
We're glad you asked! Just send along your message to GiftSwap@MINIUSA.com, and you'll receive a response soon after.
Sorry, we love your enthusiasm, but we’re keeping this in the MINI Owner family. If you’re feeling extra generous this season, donate to a charity. We guarantee a warm fuzzy feeling in return.
It may be on its way. So give it a little time. If you’ve already given it a LOT of time, then it’s hard to say. It might’ve been lost in the mail, it might’ve been stolen by a nasty elf, or the person you got matched with might have been really busy and just forgot.
First, that’s not a question. Second, we’re sorry to hear that. But look on the bright side: you don’t know them, so you don’t even have to pretend to like it. And you could always donate it.
Not with our program. But if the joy of giving overcomes you, you can donate to a cause, surprise a loved one, or just throw darts at a phonebook.
Please don’t. Most people would probably not take kindly to a stranger showing up at their door, unannounced, with a package. Even if it’s a fantastic gift from a fellow MINI Owner.
Nope. Sorry. Once matches are made, that’s it.
And ruin the surprise?! We’d ask that you respect their privacy and resist the urge.
We’re sure any MINI Owner would love something from: www.ShopMINIUSA.com. A handwritten note is always nice to include, too. And remember to keep whatever you get to around $10.
We’re glad you like it! Share photos of your gift on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter by tagging #MINIGiftSwap. Or post to the MINIUSA Facebook wall.
That depends if they were good enough to get shared. Search for #MINIGiftSwap on Facebook/Twitter/Instagram to see if anything turns up!
