UG'S 4TH ANNUAL SECRET SANTA!


Doing it again, last years: (Linky), I'm up for organising this again.

copy pasta (again) from last year because why not:

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 11th 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 25th December, let them know on the package.
  • Be considerate of customs limitations where appropriate. ie alcohol 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 Australia can definitely do only national (dependent on numbers of participants)


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

So just to clarify, I can't send someone some hash?



you could send hash browns okay. probably best to send the frozen stuff and use a special refrigerated service.

I could give you the gift in person

Although I'm aware it wouldn't be secret then, defeating the whole point

But shut up

But boys will be boys and girls have those eyes

and all you can do is just wait by the moon

I actually have no idea how much international freight costs, but I could probably afford it.

But TG took all my ideas so I need to think of something else besides dick pics and dildos.......
Come back if you want to
And remember who you are
‘Cause there's nothing here for you my dear
And everything must pass

Yeah

Was on US Amazon but not UK
You'd think cheaper international shipping is something you'd get with Prime but you'd be wrong

I think I'll do this again this year.

I'd also like to apologize for never posting back in the last thread after I got my gift. I received it the day that I left for travels and when I got back I got busy and when I had time I felt like it would have been weird to bump a Christmas thread so far after Christmas was over so I planned on waiting until next Christmas.

I got two glass jars, one full of some beautiful blue semiprecious stones that are now sitting on my shelf. The jar it was in shattered in the post but the rocks themselves were good. It appealed to the younger rock enthusiast in me, it was oddly appropriate given how much I like rocks and looking at them, so good call.

The other jar had some radioactive glow in the dark powder, that I now have under my desk lamp and it glows every night when I go to bed. I eventually plan on mixing it with some paint and using it on a model kit, which I think will look great, but until then it looks good by my bed.

So thanks to whoever that was, you did good

Try to find something unique and cool but can't find anything and then panic when Christmas is two weeks away and just buy one of the nicer gifts in Amazons popular Christmas gift section

I look forward to receiving a sweater with a reindeer stitched on it then

EDIT: Just a random thought, why not do a theme? My family does that each year.
We could do something like a gift that starts with the first letter of your secret santa's username?
