Secret Santa No. 3




UG'S 3RD ANNUAL SECRET SANTA!



Seeing as last years was alright (Linky), I'm up for organising this again.

copy pasta from last year because I am lazy right now:

This is your standard secret Santa, or secret non-denominational, gender-neutral, end-of-year-present-giving-entity if you prefer. This year it's being started early so we can have more international presents.

If you don't know how this works for some reason, basically everyone's names go into a hat, you pick one out and get them a present. For further info: Clicky



RULES
Ripped off from previous years...
  • NO TROLL GIFTS ie, nothing sexual, offensive, or anything that will cause embarrassment to the recipient or raise eyebrows at the dinner table. Keep it G rated, seriously. Not too hard.
  • Serious commitments only
  • Active community members only (no gold diggers, please)
  • Keep up with your PMs via profiles (seriously, we want this shit to work)


In addition:
  • All gifts must be sent out latest by Friday 12th of December. I recommend for international shipping you get it done before 1st December, just in case.
  • You will need to pm me when you have sent off your stuff and also the estimated delivery date, if possible.
  • Up to you if you want your gift opened as soon as it arrives or on 25/12/14, let them know on the package.
  • Be considerate of customs limitations where appropriate. ie alchohol and food. If you are ordering directly off their local country's amazon/etc this isn't an issue.
  • If you are sending something aboard as please be aware of customs declaration values! Put down the items as low value or the giftees might get charges to pay!


There is no minimum or maximum gift price limit and it doesn't matter if you make it yourself or order it direct to your recipient from their local store. The only thing that matters is that you have love and joy and happiness in your heart when you give that gift. Okay?


Break any of these rules or pull any kind of dick move and you will get a letterbomb permabanned. If you think you might have an issue, pm me first!


If there isn't looking to be enough people in on this, I'll call it off cause it's not as fun with limited numbers



To join:
Send me a message with your address and if you want to do international shipping or not. Only those in 'common' UG countries, like UK, USA, Canada and possibly Austrailia can do only national (dependent on numbers of participants)


You can totally trust me with your personal information. I am good person of infallible morals.

Can they open it in 2014? I feel 2013 might be a tad difficult.

(I'd join this, but I'm bad enough at buying gifts for people I've known my entire life).

oh goddamn it.



just buy whatever. it's easier buying for someone random because you can free yourself of thinking about their interests and get something fun.

People don't give gifts and spend quality time with their families on halloween.

Usually just stay at home peddling candy to kids or go out and have weird costumed casual sex. Both of which you can do pretty much whenever.

I'm thinking about participating. In the past, I've always done a raffle around the holiday season and gave a gift to the winner but I was always weary of people knowing exactly where I live. I've gotten more chillax about that though, but I'll still have to give it some thought.
