Yes, 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 November 26th with the subject line 'Secret Santa'.

    I will be sending out your recipients details either that evening or the next day, you then have about a week or so to stalk them and buy them something truly amazing!

    I reckon try to have your gift sent out by about the 15th 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.


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

Last years fun can be re-read here - viewtopic.php?f=3&t=5138

I'm still enjoying my desk calendar with pithy wisdoms on from last year.

Cheers for organising this.

*Reads last years thread*

If I do this I'm just going to get a mug aren't I? :kiss:

At this point I'd like to say that my Penfold mug is still awesome and I haven't broken it (yet), although I probably have broken a few other things.
I never realised this was the source of your Twitter picture Russ.

Yeah, sadly the moustaches were used up by New Year. I'm not a Jahdi, and can't grow a mo that good myself.

17 so far, I'm actually going to close this on 26th November, this gives me the weekend to get names and addresses out to people and gives you more time to stalk and browse for gifts. :)

Heh, sorry Meems. I've had a few more people join in, but we're away for the weekend so I'm doing everything on my phone. I have closed this now and will be trying to send out all the pms over the weekend but I am trying to be sociable too. :p If any body knows how to add columns to a spreadsheet in Google docs using your phone could you let me know? :D

Don't be sociable. Who cares about company? We need NAMES! :DD

You might as well leave PM-ing folks until after the weekend if you're away, JazzyG. It must be a pain in the backside doing it on your phone (OK, my phone is old and broken and can't do that kind of thing, but I assume it's still a lot more difficult that doing it on a complicator)

£5-£10, you can spend more, but don't expect more to be spent on you. Oh, and don't forget to consider postage. :)

What, has postage got to come out of the budget, too? I am confuzzled, now. I assumed that was before postage.

Anyway, I'll think of something good!

It doesn't have to Meems, I'm just telling people to consider it that's all. If you buy something that is shall we say, £11.99 because it is the most acebest thing for your good little boy or girl ever, then it costs around £4 to post, your costs are going up... Also someone might only spend £5 on you and it might only cost £1.50 to post. Just giving people somthing to think about. :)

I think I might have chosen a present already, been investigating for a wee while and I think I've just hit on a good idea. Now to spend the whole of December stressing and hoping they like it ;)
