Secret Santa 2012 rules

Recommended Posts

Secret Santa rules:

  • Sign ups for Secret Santa will begin November 1 and last through November 15. This is a two week window to sign up. (May be extended to November 22 depending on how many people sign up.)

     

  • After signing up please email me your personal information (name and address) so I can share that info with your Secret Santa on November 16. Your Secret Santa will be assigned to you on that date.

  • Gifts must be sent out between December 1 and December 15. This gives members approximately a two week window to shop or place an order. (If deadline is extended this will also be extended several days. To be determined.)

     

  • Shipping priority is not mandatory but for most it may be the best option since it includes a tracking #. If you use Paypal to ship there are 1st class options that may be less expensive and will typically include free tracking.

     

  • A tracking # is not mandatory when mailing within the US to another US address however it is highly recommended for your own records. If shipping from the post office and you ship 1st class I think it's an 80 cent add on. (It's part of Paypal's shipping option.) You don't have to give the gift recipient the tracking # as it's more for your own records.

    Note: International traders, tracking may or may be available.

     

  • Total gift value should be approximately $25.

     

  • Item(s) must be NEW and never used, swatched or opened.

     

  • Open to international traders HOWEVER note that gift receiver is responsible for any import fees, duties or taxes (if any). Also international shipping takes longer - up to 12 weeks depending on where the person lives and how it was mailed.

    Note: If you would like to trade only within your country please state that.

     

  • Once you sign up please do not back out as it will cause problems with the assignment list.

 

General rules:

  • Members who participate must have a minimum of 50 posts.
  • Must be a member of MUT for at least one month (since October 1, 2012).
  • Members must be in good standing with no serious infractions and/or no negative trade ratings.

I was just coming back to see when the sign up dates are. I think it would be cool to have our partners name and wishlist by Black Friday.

 

So many companies are having awesome sale for Black Friday and our partners will get more bang for our buck that way!

So we are in pairs? I though a chain(A gifts to B and B gifts to C) would be more fun because

1. we don't know who are our santas  until package arrives.   

2. everyone gets to know at least two members: one is santa, one is gift receiver or even more...

That's is a little like circular swap. I guess a circle of 42 members would be too tough to manage.

Sort of like that. I'm taking the list of ladies and I'm going to randomize it first by the ladies who don't mind sending to other countries because we have one lady from Isreal and one in Canada then the rest who chose only to ship within the US.

Yes! That's the fun part - the reveal! So please let your person know that it's from you and make sure to include your USERNAME because we really don't know each other by our real first names. :D

The part of the fun is seeing what we get from our Secret Santa and reveal who it is. IF possible please use the SPOILER tag when doing the reveal as some people don't want to know who the other person got until they get their own present.

I finished shopping, too.  Now I'm just waiting for the goodies to arrive in the mail.  I bought some really fun wrapping paper and I can't wait to see how gorgeous I can make this package!

    • I have been backsliding, but backsliding in a better way than before. The money has felt tighter than normal lately. I decided not to be too hard on myself, because part of that was from losing my second job due to COVID. Also I joined a new church, and really want to keep up with the tithing. That has become important to me. I found I need to tighten the budget and cut back on too much takeout/delivery [Door Dash is my vice]. That's hard for me. I was not budgeting well, and I found myself the week before Father's Day with not enough money for gifts and food that week, so I opened a new credit card. I used that to buy gifts and food, then some more food and takeout. I feel really badly about that.  BUT my old self would have just kept the card, and gone shopping for beauty items with it too, and I would have given up on my No Buy/Project Use It Up. NOW I caught myself after about two weeks of this backsliding, cut up the card, took the card number out of the computer. Because if it's there, it's too much temptation. And I kept right on using my old beauty stuff, I was not even tempted to buy new beauty stuff, just food!  Now I will wait for the bill for the new credit card to come in the mail and work on paying it off. The fact that I am rebounding like this instead of going back to my old behavior is a really good sign! I do need to work on the eating out. Getting Nutrisystem was not such a good idea. The dry food is hard to eat and it is pretty expensive too. But I will keep trying to change my food habits. Until now, I have not really had to do that to achieve my goals. We're moving into the higher goals now. 
    • Men with gray hair are often flattered for their distinguished looks. Timothy Olyphant, John Slattery and other stars demonstrate the attractive face of gray hair. We hope they help you discover the cut that will best suit your gray hair. Take a look at these three guys in the photo above. The photo on the right shows Adam Lambert (born 1982), who is the youngest of the three. He probably doesn't want to praise senior citizens, but instead prefers to wear his voluminous gray hair to stand out from the crowd. Some young stars like Adam Lambert and Kelly Osbourne love to wear gray hair and enjoy playing with cliches. Of course, such characteristic appearances draw the attention of young Hollywood-obsessed youth. The white hair mixed with natural colors in the heads of young stars attracts more sure looks that lilacs, pinks or greens and go unnoticed. In the photo Timothy Olyphant (born 1968) appears in the center, as does his hairstyle. His “salt and pepper” hair near his temples and on his beard makes him look naturally distinguished and adds the appeal of the hair growth products for african american hair mature man who knows who he is and what he wants. Why change something that works so well? This can also be applied to John Slattery (born 1962), on the left of the photo. Almost all of John Slattery's hair lacks pigment and is therefore close to the transition from silver to white. His modern hairstyle and carefree demeanor show a person who knows how to step forward without getting nervous. No wonder it arouses as much admiration as desire.  Best hairstyles for men with gray hair Whatever the way that stars and celebrities wear or (pretend to) assume their gray hair, since they discover their first gray hair, most men (or women) have only one emotional response: “Oh no! Get rid of them! ” After the first shock of noticing that time passes while we don't realize it, most men at least cut their hair or shave off their beard that is starting to turn gray. This reaction is very constructive. In the photo, Matt Damon demonstrates how interesting haircuts are for men with gray hair. This is also the most popular hairstyle of all time for men with gray hair. George Clooney teaches us how to wear gray hair with style and class.     It can take a while for people to get used to the idea of having gray hair. It is best to have a strategy when the first isolated gray hairs cannot be hidden or plucked for much longer. Why not let gray hair mix freely with the rest of your mane? Adam Lambert, Timothy Olyphant and John Slattery (see photo above) demonstrate how to do it with class. Jeff Bridges, with his shoulder length gray hair and thick beard, is the image of a nature lover, like his younger colleagues, Charlie Hunnam and Jake Gyllenhaal.
    • Love the placement and subtlety of the cat eye and subtle cut crease.  It looks gorgeous. I'm trying to perfect the cut crease with white eyeliner lately.  I've only practiced it twice so I have a long way to go.
    • Essential hydration The dermis is made up of 70% water and the epidermis 15%. To maintain a good level of hydration, it is therefore important to opt for daily moisturizers that balance the water level at the heart of the skin. You can also regularly use a moisturizing mask, it ensure both your face health and beauty by removing the excess using a mist of thermal water.
