Well hello there! So, it's not been the best of years for most, so to try to bring some cheer, Secret Santa is back! Once again 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 22nd 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;

Friday 18th December Second Class and Recorded Signed For
Monday 21st 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, I've sorted everyone out - but I need sleep, so will send these out tomorrow now.

Mount Olympus apologizes for the delay in these trying times... :kiss:

Jazzy’s had to put up with the same mug for years. Shall we get her a new one instead?

Right, everyone should have a name to stalk now. Remember, if you have any questions that you want me to ask your recipient - just let me know.

Happy shopping all, I can't wait to see what people get! :smug:

Post subject:  Re: Secret Santa 2020

Mine came a week or so ago so whoever my Secret Santa is, is very organised.

It's under the tree now and will provide a highlight on what is otherwise going to be a pretty sad little Christmas.

Received an OS puzzle book that looks great fun and a very Rexy t-shirt. Thanks Secret Santa!

Thank you Secret Santa! I got a coaster that says ‘Because I am the Dungeon Master’, a D&D themed sticker for my laptop and a pin.

No picture unfortunately until Jem sends it to me via WhatsApp, but my not-so Secret Santa got me a cracking little card game called Tarantula Tango (which looks as if it's by the same people as Cockroach Poker)

We played a couple of games last night and it was great fun - I was quite surprised that even the kids picked it up straight away and didn't get confused - something some of the adults didn't even manage to do! ;)

Cheers not-so Secret Santa (and thank you for the card, too!)

//edit: Oh, there we go...

You are very welcome. Mimi has pointed me in the direction not another way of doing this too, so I might give that a go next year. :)
