We will likely pick 1 or 2 theme options for the exchange depending on how this poll goes. Please vote for your first choice of theme. If you have another strong favorite, please just mention it in the comments. I included a brief description of how each theme would work/what theme-specific info the recipient would include when signing up. The sender is always allowed to include whatever he or she wants as long as the exchange guidelines are followed, but, hopefully, will keep the recipient's comments in mind when putting together the box.
Also, we will have a separate poll for Retail Value category preferences in a few minutes.
