9th Secret Santa Gift Exchange and Thank You's!
It's that time again...

WHAT SECRET SANTA IS

A holiday gift exchange between TFSers just for fun. It's for everybody, not just those who celebrate Christmas, but we do refer to the gift givers in Christmas-y terms but it's not religion related. Santas are the gift givers and the elves are the receivers of the gift. Everyone gives and receives a gift. The elves are selected at random.We do allow preferences like if you want a guy or girl, within your country/state, a close country, or international. If there is some specific other preference, we try our best to accomodate it, please dont forget to add that kind of information to your submission.


IF YOU WANT TO JOIN IN ON THE FUN

1. PM me your TFS name, real name, and address. Include any preferences in your elfs gender, location, etc as well.

2. You will get a confirmation PM back once I have put you on the list. If you want me to make the list public and update it as the PMs come in, I can do that.

And then you're joined in and just have to wait until sorting happens....

ON TO A FEW SIMPLE RULES

If you cannot commit to doing this then this is something that should be passed up until another year that you can. we hope no one comes into this to just receive. We understand sometimes things come up, but if something does, commit to letting me know ASAP so that we can fix the sorting out to pair your elf to someone else.

Gifts can be anything and there is not a price minimum or limit. What is important is giving something you think this person enjoys. Many people have made things for their elves in the past as well and those gifts are always well received as well. Everyone has a different budget .Think of the person you're giving it to and what they love and you'll always end up with a gift they will love. And most of all try to do it for the fun of doing something special for somebody else.

HOW TO DISCOVER DETAILS ABOUT YOUR ELF

1. Look up their post! See what things they like.

2. If that doesn't help or you have specific questions, you PM me and I'll ask your elf the questions annonymously!!!! Just remember to let me know their TFS user name when you send me questions and I'll send them back to you as soon as they answer. (That is the coolest part, knowing you are being investigated, lol. )

3. Optional, but we encourage people to post on the Secret Santa Hints thread to give a basic like and dislike list for your santa to read. Giving them some good stuff to start with means that you're just helping them out give you a gift they know you will enjoy! And to get to know each other better, some of us have crossed paths before in x's thread but never got to know them really.


DEADLINES

JOINING DEADLINE - OCTOBER 31st 2012.

If you know someone who might enjoy this, but doesn't head to the spot a lot, let them know!

SENDING OUT ELVES- NOVEMBER 2-4.

CHECK YOUR PM on a regular basis! There might be questions from your santa to answer to give them ideas to get you the most meaningful gift they can get so please check. It affects when you get your gift because your santa could be waiting for you to respond. Also if the gift is late your santa might want to send you a note.

Also take in mind that it's a busy season and try to ship your gift ahead of time.

Have Fun!

this will be my third year, i'm definitely joining again.
still i hope things get clear by the end of it, as usual there are some people that never get their presents and at least we wish the list was published so they could at least know who was suppouse to give them the present so things like that don't happen again.

BTW, maybe we should all put link to this thread in our signatures so that more people could see it and join.

This is going to be my fifth year too, I believe. I've had both good and bad experciences, bad as in didn't get a gift but tbh I've had a great time anyways. Stalking your elf is a lot of fun and finding the perfect gift too. I've also had really cool and thoughtful gifts.

One year we did a postcard exchange and that was really cool too. I got postcards from all over the world
