YO HO HO - Merry… November

welcome to the 1st ever drownedinsound dot com secret santa! quite a few people said they would be interested, so lets give it a go!

it works the same as your office secret santa; everyone who wants to take part gets their name put into a hat. each person draws a name (I’ll do that for you) and you then have to buy a present for that person! you post the gift out to your allocated disser then wait to receive a present from your allocated secret santa. once it gets nearer to christmas, we open them all together and try to guess who our santa was! great fun!

a few things to note before you sign up:
you will have to give out your address: this will only be seen by me and whoever your secret santa is, not posted on the forum.
you don’t have to give out your irl name if you don’t want to, but then your username will be written on the gift. up to you.
IT IS RANDOM: you have no say in what disser you have to buy a present for, and no say in what disser buys a present for you. if you are unhappy about that, do not sign up. I am not swapping names if you get someone you don’t know etc
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE: do not sign up if you think you may forget / decide not to play. this will mean some poor disser won’t get their present :crying_cat_face: (also I can’t do anything about this so bear it in mind)
but that won’t happen because we’re all lovely people! yay!
there is no budget cap for gifts, but not more than Β£5 is suggested

so…how to play?
if you want to join in, just send me a PM with your name and address. there is a two-week signup window to give people plenty of time to join in (ie before 25th November) once I have everyone’s name, I’ll send you out a PM with your selected disser & instructions.

DEADLINE FOR SIGNUPS: NOVEMBER 25th
(which is AGES so if you try and PM me on the 26th you can get tae)

that’s it for now!

cheers

I have signed up! Who wants to get a letter with Irish stamps on it?


#3

got any of the 1916 commemorative ones kicking about? :wink:


#4

No actually! I wonder what An Post is doing at the moment?


#5

I’ve just gotten what you said! Fuck, they’re all definitely getting 1916 stamps!


#6

yay! plenty of signups already :blush:


#7

ME!!!


#8

Oh right, PM it is then


#9

Norwegian stamps!

Would it not be easier than giving out your address to a stranger to give the person a e-gift voucher and a link to what you want them to have and then they just post a picture of them with it? If they dont buy what they are supposed to buy they get shunned?


#11

I’m in.


#12

Sorry I am just scared :frowning:


#13

what if they CAN’T buy it?? what if you are making it?


#14

Oh never realised it was that kind of Secret Xmas

#18

When is the opening date likely to be? Want to give the address of where I’ll be.


#19

well, the closing date is the 25th. so was planning on letting everyone know who they’ve picked on the 26th.

I figure, two weeks to get a present and a week to send it should be more than plenty, so we could do it on the 16th December, which is a friday. But can see what everyone wants to do? I’m guessing with the following week being the last week before xmas people might be busy / travelling etc so doubt we want to do it then.

it’d be fun to open them all at the same time, but it’s not essential. not everyone is going to be free at a particular time anyway, whenever it is.

In!

Enjoy your Lynx Africa gift set!
