The creators of the online gift sharing community known as Drop Spot restore a little faith in the human race by starting a chain of giving, linking cities across the United States.

Scavenger hunts are no longer reserved for children since the creation of Drop Spot. Thanks to Drop Spot, gift exchanges which are mapped online have made it possible for adults to recapture their sense of whimsy. According to the creators of Drop Spot, the idea behind the site is to be a, “kind of alternative mailbox. It’s a hiding place in a public space, where people can leave things for exchange.”

The basic idea behind the city and statewide gift exchange is to hide a small gift somewhere in the city in a location, which can not be seen by passers by. The individual which hides the gift must then post the location of the gift on a map on the website.

The gift itself should be something unique that expresses the giver’s personality, and does not have to be anything purchased in a store. Along with the gift the giver may also attach a letter or any information they wish to share about themselves.

Participants that are curious to find out what happened to their gift may check its progress on the site’s map and may also post pictures on the site’s gallery.

Anyone wanting to participate in the Drop Spot can simply visit the website and visit the map to see if their city is a participant. If there are participants within that particular city there will be locations of gifts posted on the maps, which are can be found by anyone. In return they must also leave a gift in the spot in which one was previously found.

Be a trendsetter in your city and start your own Drop Spot by hiding a gift in a random hiding spot in your city, then placing on the website’s map.
