    Secret Santa 2017 (Real Gift Exchange)

    I usually try to start this thread on the first of August, sorry for the lateness! I've been visiting my family and I kept forgetting I need to start this thread!

    For those of your who haven't done this with us before, this is a real Secret Santa with members on this forum. You will be sending a real gift through the mail. (So make sure you are comfortable giving out your address if you want to join) Please be aware you could be shipping internationally, so don't send super heavy gifts.

    We don't really have a certain price limit, but I think anywhere from $5 to $15 is ok. But it's up to you, you can spend a little bit more, but don't go crazy. Really it's not the price that matters.

    So here is how this goes, if you want to join, go ahead and PM me your email address. I will give people a month to join. So on September 16th, I will use a Secret Santa website we have been using for years, where I enter in all the email addresses, and then emails are sent to everyone, and in that email, you will get a link where you enter your wishlist and your address of where you want your gift to be sent to. Once everyone has done that, people will get an email with someone's wishlist and address so you can send them a gift! Make sure to send it in time so they receive their gift by Christmas. I know this seems early but we have been starting it this early for years so hopefully everyone has a few months or so to shop and ship their gift in time for their person to receive their gift by Christmas.

    1. Deadline for joining: Saturday, September 16th.
    2. How to join: PM me with your e-mail address before the above date.
    3. Suggested price range for gifts: $5-$15
    4. Do not reveal your identity to the person you are buying for. This goes against the aspect of it being a secret. People who reveal themselves will be banned from joining the following year.
    5. It sounds cheesy, but have fun!!

    I would love join this year, but (for who don't know yet) I had a cancer in my leg and had to remove this tumour, which means I'm away from work until I recover the movements of my leg .

    For a while, I will need to wait to see what will happen in my recover...

    Oh Thiago, I'm so sorry to hear that. Cancer is scary. I hope you make a full recovery. You have plenty of time to decide if you can to join. Take it easy while you rest and recover.

    Yeah I already told Sharifu a while back that I can't join. I had very hard time last year doing anything in last fall when I took Trigonometry and Pre-Calculus. So now that I'm taking Astronomy and Calculus 2 I don't think I will have a slightest chance to get it done. I'm already over overburdened by all the trigonometric substitutions and identities that we have seen and I don't think it's getting any better later on. So I feel like it wouldn't be right for me to join and possibly miss the deadline as school is not over until Dec 22nd. You guys have fun though

    Lea members I have met: Fuzzy, Naline, Boos, Ruska, Tima, Talfasi, JambaB, Sharifu, Vidan, Muruwa, Taneli, Shadow, nathalie, Lucy , Amaryllis, This Land, Daniel, Lion King Stu, King Simba, Nephilim, KanuTGL, Lion_King_300, 2DieFR, Kenai, A-non-a-mus, Eva Janus, dlb138, Levin, HasiraKali, Revo, Simba The Enigma, Azerane and Xacheraus.

    One more day left to join! Anyone else want to join in?! It looks like it's going to be a smaller group this year. For those of you who are joining, please make sure to PM me your email address if you haven't already.

    Hey everyone! Just letting you know I started the group. Just go ahead and open the email, add your wishlist and address!

    Also, I wanted to mention, until everyone has joined the group by adding their wishlist, there is still a chance for me to add people (or remove them) so if there is anyone who still wants to join last minute, there is still time!

    Just enter your address in the same area you enter your wish list. (I typed my address in word and copy and pasted it into the wish list, just because I know it's a little weird trying to type it into the wish list area, when you hit enter to go to the next line, it kind of separates it.)

    Nothing here yet. I'm doing Christmas shopping this weekend and I'm picking out something for my SS then. I have a few ideas, I just need to make a decision.
