Well hello there!

So, I heard a rumour that some people are disappointed that this has not happened this year; well it still can! 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 December 3rd with the subject line 'Secret Santa'.

    I will be sending out your recipients details on Sunday 4th, you then have about a week 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 wish list, you can get the thingy (technical term, okay) so you can grab stuff from any site.

Last posting dates;

Monday 19th December Second Class and Recorded Signed For
Wednesday 21st December First Class and Recorded Signed For

Do not forget, there are postal strikes happening too.

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

I'll be closing this tonight, folks - names will be sent out tomorrow.

If you're not buying from Amazon, I'd encourage you to consider sending any gifts via courier. We use Parcel to go quite a bit.

All of those taking part should have had a PM now.

If you have any questions you want to send through me, please go ahead. I'll make sure to check my PMs daily. :)

Happy shopping!

Not sure what's going on there, but I'm too lazy to get up and take another photo in landscape.

Seems a bit silly to have gone to the trouble of taking your gift up to the loft to begin with, Gaz.

If my experience of tags is anything to go by, it's blank on the other side.

A map of the best-named places in Britain! Superb!

Going to have some fun looking at and using this map. Thanks Secret Santa!

I had no idea what this was for until I joined a video call with my brother and my sister-in-law told me.

It’s a spectacles stand — and I love it! Thanks Santa!

But I might have narrowed down my secret Santa to one of two people.

As Gaz and Jem have a Danny at their’s. I would have guessed either of those.

If not I am impressed.
