    Back by Popular Demand, since last year was a success I thought we'll do it again and I'll host another one. I think we had about 23 people last year that participated, let's see if we can break that record.

    All you have to do if you want to participate is to write in this thread and write which continent you live in, it'll make it easier for me to organize groups.


    The rules;
    As the Santa you give a gift. Your Giftee(recipient) does not know who you are so remember to make sure you include a note with the gift!

    As the Contact you pass on information from a Giftee to a Santa (Address, a short Wishlist if you would like etc.)
    How it works is that everyone will be contact to someone, Secret Santa to another person and also a giftee who will receive his/her own gift from another Santa.


    The only rule is to make sure your gift is sent. I would say that between $10 and $30 USD would be appropriate!

    To sign up just reply to this thread! If your profile does not list your general location (US or International) please list it in your sign up post!!!

    Last day for Signup is December 7th

    That would be nice if you joined. Everything you need to know is mentioned in OP. Once we hit deadline I pm everyone with the information they need to go forward. :)

    Usually yeah but what you can do is, when I assign a contact to you use that person to ask questions to your giftee, the recipient. The contact will ask him/her if they have a wishlist or something they would like to have etc. Then that info will be passed on to you, that might help you pick something as a gift.

    That's not a must, I've never had a wish list and my Santa has always given me great stuff. I had Liam last year and that guy is observant, he knew from my previous posts on the forum what type of music and stuff I like etc.

    Really? I wish you had told me, I would've happily sent you something. We never leave anyone behind on Secret Santa.

    Last year we had a drop out but we fixed it, one guy lost his Santa but we arranged a different Santa for him. :)

    There were some issues with delivery services in France, as I recall. Maybe it was that.
    Ok, I'll give it a go again this year.

    Good question! I think he got stuck somewhere. I'd like to see him make some more stops.

    I have another character who wants to go on a journey though, Mr. Godzilla Koosh Ball:

    I think he's around here somewhere.

    It would be nice if we could locate him and the possy, maybe we can arrange so that he can hitch a ride with a secret Santa package.

    Lost in transit from @Mipstoo to @nutball73 maybe?

    ....not entirely out of the question though that he somehow might have ended up back in the States in @Monkeyboy ’s firing kiln with the Ken and Barbie dolls. The man has a way...

    If he's still in Belgium, we can bust him out in June during the Antwerp Euroguestock.

    I looked back at the end of that thread. Thought he was going to Stu, but that ended up getting squashed for a second time. There was a thought that it might get sent back over here to Bigdogdaddy. But he decided that it made more sense that it made a few more stops on that side so it didn’t end up going back and forth. Not sure if he sent it to Nutball or if he still has it. That’s where it kind of tailed off.
