Secret Santa 2015 - heads up

Recommended Posts

We will be doing Secret Santa again this year. It's a lot of fun and we encourage people to sign up! You have to have minimum of 50 quality posts (Hi's etc don't count as quality posts) prior to Secret Santa starting and be in good standing (no warnings etc). The sign ups will be at the end of this month (October) so I just wanted to get this thread going as a heads up. :) Who is interested in participating this year? This thread can be used to brainstorm as to what would work the best. We have used Elfster in the past. Does everyone want to continue using it this year?

I am definitely interested; it will depend on my job situation at the end of the month as to whether I can or not (looking good atm).

I would love to participate I know I just signed up a few months ago, but I looked at last year's thread and it looks like so much fun! The reveals are so awesome, everyone does an amazing job wrapping!

Oh I'm fairly new so I'm not sure if I'm eligible (I think I have at least 50 quality posts but I've also made some successful swaps) but I'd definitely be interested!

I am interested.  Was not a member here last year, but love Secret Santa.  Is it a month long Secret Santa or just a one-time gift?  (I've seen both.)

I really liked using elfster, I knew exactly what my giftee wanted and was able to shop for her from a couple of places so I could get her exactly what she wanted. Although I think I did give her some surprises so I'm glad I could make her happy. I know when I got my gift I was so thrilled, it was SUPER nice and my santa was incredible. I definitely look forward to doing it again this year!

Thanks for the feedback. Sounds like elfster is the way to go.

I love Secret Santa.  I hope I have enough posts.  I am cheating at work right now being on here.  But it is the end of the day.  Working extra this holiday season, so I would love to participate. So my play money does not go into my other money.

Secret Santa sounds like a lot of fun! I was not in it last year, what exactly is Elfster?

Elfster is a website that lets you make a 'wishlist' for items and join gift exchanges. Its pretty neat once you get the hang of it.

We are getting ready to do this. I was thinking about the deadline for sign ups to be the 10th and the exchange would happen on the 15th. How does that sound? How about the limit for spending. Do you all think $25 would be good?

I would LOVE to do this. I just signed up as well. I think this is a cool idea and I love the idea of having a limit although sometimes it is hard to stick to a limit lol.

Sorry this could be a stupid question, but do you mean signups November 10th? And exchange them December 15th??

Sorry OT, but if you are like me and enjoy buying gifts for others this time of year, and if you have the means to do so, consider adopting a family for the holidays. There are lots of organizations that match people up with families in need, you would need to do some research in you area. Last year my team at work adopted a family in need and had so much fun buying gifts, a tree, and food for a holiday dinner. Seeing how excited the kids were was  something I'll never forget.

If you took part last year, you should already have an elfster account. Here's a guide on how to get started:

There's some screenshots missing but its still nice to read through if you're totally unfamiliar with elfster.

    • You can have a vegan diet. I've been a vegan for 2 years already. I was obese before I started and right now I am perfectly happy with my weight. I have the right weight for my height. So, yea. Try to go vegan.

    • I personally think that there nothing wrong with wearing light make up. It's just our way of feeling good about ourselves and definitely not to impress guys.
