Hi all, thought it would be a nice idea to have a secret santa on these forums and the feedback seemed quite positive so lets give this a go
Plus we need time to get gifts sorted etc so cant mess about!
The basic gist is that every member who is involved buys one randomly selected fellow member a surprise Christmas present. In return they receive a surprise present themselves (from another randomly selected member)
I wont be disclosing who sent which gift to who, and if people wish to discuss that afterwards then that's fine, but for my part it will remain a Secret present!.
We've come up with a rough guide gift price of £5 (this is excluding any packing wrapping and postage) , participants can spend more at their own choice but £5 is the recommended/nominal figure
With the state of the uk postage system its recommended to get your gift sorted and posted out asap, to avoid any disappointment for the receiver.
There are sure to be some no shows, however i cant be held responsible for this, we will be relying on each participants goodwill, trust and festive spirit!
You will be welcome to reveal who gave what etc afterwards if you should wish, or it could just be kept a secret
I will do my best to get this to run smoothly and with the help/aid of my trustworthy elf Hors1na
I recommend giving a very brief idea of interests hobbies clothing size etc just to help out any prospective gift giver should they need any ideas
We''ll cap the participant list to 50 at the moment and see how it goes, dont think id be able to cope with a mad rush, neither would my pm box be able to handle it
Participant rules are:
1) You must have been registered on this site for over 6 months
2) You must have an overall post count of over 500
I will keep a list of participants in this OP to keep a check, and once the draw has been made, pm's will be sent out to each of you with details on who your shopping for
i will require a small rsvp to my pm's just to confirm you'v got the info
If you want to join, please drop a post saying so with the interest ideas etc and ALSO PM ME your name and address so i can link to you to send out to your secret santa
So all ye' fellow AV forumers, lets get this show on the road!!!
Too keep the cost down, no overseas participants, sorry.
