UG'S 2ND ANNUAL SECRET SANTA!


Hey, so following the great success of last year's fun, I thought we might try this again.

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 last year...
  • 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 to Jay's previous rules:

  • All gifts must be sent out latest by Friday 13th 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 25/12/13, let them know on the package.
  • Be considerate of customs limitations where appropriate.
  • 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 can do only national)


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

What if I buy the guy something cheap or expensive and then my gift is the opposite? I'd feel bad.

how much would it cost to ship something somewhere in the UK?


from yourself: ~£3 at most unless you're sending something huge.

off amazon: usually free

off another website: ~£3.50

I want to do this!

But I won't be around for a while during the delivery period and I've had bad experiences trying to collect things weeks after they were first delivered. Would it be possible for whoever gets me to send it much earlier or later (before dec 20th or after jan 10th)? If not I won't sign up because i think its more fun if everyone gets theirs at around the same time, but I also don't want to to lose my present in some warehouse

I don't really have money so unless I have a good idea soonish I'm sitting this out. But it's super cool and I hope everyone has fun.

That is entirely possible. Ideally international recipients (ie: you.) would have stuff sent to them by end of November. Most (western) delivery services get things sent international within a week unless it's surface surface mail. You might even get something from your local amazon instead. Please join in

I will say to anyone worried about cost, you can easily get some trinket for the price of a pint off amazon and send it free delivery, or even make something yourself and chuck a pound or two at delivery. It's okay if money is really an issue though, I remember how it was being a jobless student back in the days.
