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 30th with the subject line 'Secret Santa'.

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

    I reckon try to have your gift sent out by about the 13th 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 we can track it, 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;

Wednesday 18 December Second Class and Recorded Signed For
Friday 20 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. :)

It got returned to your Santa who was going to give it to you at the Manchester meet instead...

Just a thought... as I'm going to be at the Christmas quiz, I'm happy to act as an intermediary for anybody who is partaking if you and your recipient are both attending.

Yay :) I actually saw something the other day that I thought was good for someone and I hoped I'd get them in secret Santa this year, but I have both forgotten what it was I saw, and who I thought it was good for. Sorry!

My main concern is whether we'll get something else for SSTS to pose topless with.

The secret bit is that people don't know who their Santa is though. :)

Anyway, all PMs have now been sent, any problems - let me know!

You know what to do people. :)

Malc!

Your Santa says;

Quote:
Estimated delivery for Malc:
17 Dec 2013 - 21 Dec 2013

It's not wrapped and the shitty place couldn't not put the price in the box, apparently, so tell him to get Mrs Malc to take it out.
