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 24th with the subject line 'Secret Santa'.

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

    I reckon try to have your gift sent out by about the second 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;

Tuesday 18th December Second Class and Recorded Signed For
Thursday 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. :)

You should all have who you are buying for now - if not I've gone wrong somewhere and you need to let me know!

As before, any questions you need me to ask on your behalf - just drop me a PM and I'll do that for you.

Happy shopping all! :)

Thanks Santa Incognito!

So, I was instructed to put my gift in the fridge, which is precisely what you want to hear at this time of year :p Having successfully extracted it, I'm hoping it's not more cheese
