There's even an option to swap a simple ornament or a more fancy one, so you can be paired with someone in your same category. How easy is that?

Handmade Ornament Inspiration

For instance, I'd call most of these ornaments above "simple" (maybe with the exception of the top left), although I haven't timed them. So let's say ornaments that take 30 minutes or less. And I'd call these ornaments below a little more elaborate (could feasibly take 1 to 2 hours, with some stitching of tiny details involved).

If you're not sure which category to choose, just go with your gut. No need to stress about this swap, which should be carefree and simple!
