Well hello there! It's that time of year again folks where you get to stalk your victim er, recipient and send them something amazing to make their Christmas rawk! :metul:

Rules of the game if you want to play are:

    PM me your details(name & address) by Midnight November 16th with the subject line 'Secret Santa'.

    I will be sending out your recipients details the next day, you then have up to a month to stalk them and buy them something truly amazing!

    I reckon try to have your gift sent out by about the first week of December so it gets there in plenty of time.


    You may post in this thread, but you don't have to if you want to remain super secret and stalkerish!
    :ninja:

    I'm thinking of a cost limit of £5 - £10?


    Over Christmas you take a photo of your gift and put it in this thread.


Try and make sure that you at least get proof of postage in case something goes astray, recorded delivery is always better so it can be tracked, but do whatever is within budget for you.

Try to update your Amazon wishlist, you can get the thingy (technical term, okay) so you can grab stuff from any site.

Last posting dates;

Thursday 18th December Second Class and Recorded Signed For
Saturday 20th December First Class and Recorded Signed For

Any further thoughts or anything you think I've missed, feel free to post in this thread or drop me a PM. :)

Right, that should be everybody paired up now. If you think you should have had a PM but haven't; please let me know!

Some of you might also notice that you are buying for people you have bought for before. I made sure it wasn't the person you bought for last year, other than that I reckon after six years it shouldn't matter too much. ;)

I just received an awesome thing that I can only imagine is Secret Santa from here, but I don't recall entering Secret Santa this year, nor receiving a recipient for a present. Has someone here sent me an awesome book, or has this fantastic largesse come from elsewhere?

I've just checked, I don't appear to have given your name to anyone. :P

How is everyone getting on? I've passed on all of the messages I've received so far, good work you guys. :)

You mean you haven't imported one from New England that was a descendant of the tree the Declaration of Independence was written on?

Secret Santa has arrived and has all signs of being awesome. Elf has handled Santa's delivery and hidden it under the tree.

My Secret Santa did some awesome research.

All of my hobbies and interests are here:

As some of you will know, I adore Alice In Wonderland. I've just taken the necklace off in an attempt to try and get a decent pic, but now I will put it straight back on. I love both gifts dearly. Thank you, Santa! x x

For avoidance of doubt, this is what it is supposed to do. You wouldn't know there was a screen until you press it and red LEDs do some fancy wavy dots thing before showing the time. Pretty cool, but dam tricky to use and take a wrist-selfie* at the same time!


*a 'welfie' - the hit craze of 2015. You heard it here first.

I have a comically large amount of hair products, but also a pac man ice cube tray and awesome book. I've already learnt that it would be more cost effective to ship all the buildings in London to New York than to build a bridge between London and New York out of lego bricks.
Thanks not-so-secret santa.
