Just a thought I thought I'd throw out there.

Any one interested possibly doing a Superly-Duperly-Hardcore-Matazone-Secret-Santa-Thing for the December holidays?

People on here tend to send each other things anyway. From condoms to panties... I figured a Secret Santa could be fun. smile.gif

I'm interested in that... Although I suspect that anything I send will be fairly obviously from me.

I would love to join in with this! I am, however, notoriously awful at sending things within a timeframe. (Which reminds me, I need to send a friend's suitcase he left here in August. And letters. And panties. Damn)
But, things do get sent and I think it would be a cool idea.

Becky, you still have Robin's suitcase? You've moved house since he left that, haven't you?

And yeah, I'd totally be up for it. And Speaker, who wouldn't want to receive thirty pairs of syuu's undergarments?

I'd be interested.

How would it work? Who would pick the names out of the hat? How would the Matazonian who got our name be secret when we'd have to PM them our address?* Not that that's a problem. It's just a weird spin on the game.

Let me know who's name I pull from the hat.


*tricky but possible as I'm changing residences again. Yay new apartment!

One person would co-ordinate, getting all the addresses, then send out addresses randomly to the other people. You know who you're buying/making for, but they don't know who it has come from.

Question. Do you usually reveal who the Secret Santa is upon giving the gift here? I ask because earlier Ste was mentioning something about a Secret Santa at work, and how the person he is getting the gift for won't know it has come from him.

Whenever I've done this in the US we usually included a card saying who had given the gift. If you aren't supposed to reveal the gift-giver here, that could get tricky when it comes to customs forms for forumites in the US or Canada. You have to sign your name and all.... tongue.gif

Anyway, I will join in!

With my signature I doubt that would be much of a problem wink.gif You could always have someone else sign it for you, I guess.

I don't think you usually tell people who sent it, but I think often people either find out or work it out anyway - I suspect that's part of the fun.

So, who's going to be the central hub? We'll need to get organised quickly. Izzy, do you want to distribute the names or would you like someone else to do it? I don't mind being the hub if you would prefer.

Uh, if you're really up to doing it you can, otherwise no pressure. I could do it, but I dunno about how every one would feel about sending me their addresses and stuff, since I haven't really been on here that long.

Nearly two years counts as a while!

I've got a lot going on at the moment with looking for a new job, and I'm happy for you to have my address. Is everyone else okay with that?

Should there be a price limit on gifts?

*edit* It doesn't seem like two years. Time flies when your having fun?

I'd say around 5ish dollars or pounds.

I'm fine with you having my address. Two years is quite a long time -- that's half as long as me! If you misuse it I will just break out my old Trunchbull icon and swing you around by the pigtails. wink.gif

moop also wants to join in separately from me. Hopefully we won't draw one another's names! That would be no fun.

Okay:

Partners can pick not to be buying for their partner (Ryn/Smiler, Cand/Moop)
Absolute maximum spend £5 ($10), average spend £2-3 ($4-6)
Don't get anything too heavy or you'll blow a fortune on shipping
Presents can be something you've made
You're not allowed to be offended if you don't like something
Try not to buy something people are unlikely to like!
You shouldn't tell people that you're buying/making for them before you send it, but you can once they've got it if you want
Photos of cool presents will be expected!

Any other guidelines?

Yayyy, this sounds fun - I understand the price limit, but it still makes me a little sad since I like to buy personal things for people and sort of ignore the budget. Is it at all possible to raise it to $15?

and yes, I'm happy for you to have my address. This'll be fun.
