    Secret Santa 2018 (Real Gift Exchange)

    It's that time of year again... To start Secret Santa!

    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 3rd, 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: Monday, September 3rd.
    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!!

    Honestly I can't either... But I think that every year. Also, I was just thinking, how we started doing Secret Santa with real gifts on Lea in 2007. So this is the eleventh year, wow! I've been apart of it every year, and I love being apart of it. It's such a tradition now.

    That's great! Don't forgot to PM me your email address though.

    Not many people have joined, I think I'll mention this on the Lea Facebook page, especially if Lea might go down for a little while in the beginning of September.

    So, I came back from Oregon a few days ago, and I got all my gifts from my Secret Santa. There was a second package for me when I got home. Sadiki hasn't gotten his yet though it seems, so hopefully it comes soon. Nit and HasiraKali, have either one of you received your gifts yet? I am planning to post what I got soon, with pictures.

    Ok, so I am just going to go ahead and post who drew me and what they got for me. I don't think anyone will mind. My Secret Santa was Leorgathar! He sent me a lot! Some Mexican candies and treats, a little dragon statue, a Simba lanyard metal, a cool Yoshi made of out plastic beads, (I'm not sure I remember what those are called. Did you make that Leor?) and a wonderful full page of colored pencil artwork by Leor himself. Quite amazing gifts Leor! Thank you so much!

    I'm really glad you liked your gifts!
    I wish it was me who made that Yoshi, but I don't have that kind of skill xD I bought it at a games store haha. At least I could put my pastel pencils to a good use with the drawing, I'm very happy with how it turned out ^^

    My Secret Santa this year was ThiagoPE. He sent me this awesome Legend of Zelda mug, it goes really well with my Zelda merch collection
    Thank you so much, Thiago!

    Sorry guys, I haven't said anything though I did get my gift a long time ago.

    Nit got me this https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon....1peVa2tJdL.jpg

    Thanks a bunch! I have very few video game related things and Bowser is my favorite character in the Mario universe. It's currently hanging on in the corner of our TV with him in one corner and Yoshi on the other.
