Cowart's Common Room
Secret Santa - ???

Anyone want to do it this year? Please let me know if this is a good idea.
I am happy to organise it if you want to do it.

I will assume some of you do, so this post will be the list, so add your names here or PM me privately if you want to be a really secret Santa!

We'll need at least 10 to make it work.

Cowgirl's Avatar Would love to but hardly seems fair to lump some poor soul with postage to NZ!

Lampworkbeader's Avatar Well Cowgirl, we've had Secret Santas in Canada before now.

Faith's Avatar Ok, everyone, we have enough folk already so we will be going ahead. Cowgirl, I'm sure your SS won't mind posting to NZ.

Basically how it works is very simple - you buy or make an easily posted little surprise gift for the person who's name and address you are sent (by me, by Private Message) and you post it to them well before Xmas. The inner wrapper i.e. the Xmas paper should have a label or message on it to say 'From your Secret Santa' so the recipient knows just to put it under the tree.

I copied the following from the Seasonal Forum - where it is up as a 'sticky'. But I changed the figure to 6 (up 1)

Here's how it works:

We have a Secret Santa Christmas gift swap. Anyone interested puts their name down by a certain date - then I mix the names up and contact each person and tell them who to send a gift to (obviously you will have to supply me with your address to take part)

I think gifts should be no more than 6 absolute max, and maybe much less - could be home/hand made, a little treasure from a charity shop, a Christmassy ornament or gift item etc - just a nice little thing that you'd like to send someone. Please DO stick to 6 max so that no-one feels they didnt spend enough when they open something more extravagant.

As we have got organised early, I will close the list in approx two weeks time on 18th Oct to give everyone plenty of time to get/make the gift and post overseas if necessary.

Faith's Avatar PS I have most addresses, if you took part last time, so unless you have moved, like CK, there is no need to send me your address. I will ask if I need it.

Cowgirl's Avatar Then count me in please if you're sure they won't mind! Yay! Love Secret Santa's!
